Lowestoft Town boss Dale Brooks admits his biggest challenge is getting a side out for the Blues’ remaining 11 games this season.

The Blues’ committee held a meeting with the players on Tuesday night when the financial crisis at the club was laid bare to them. After not being paid for January, players are looking at their options, with Harry Barker becoming the latest to head for the exit door to join Norwich United.

He followed Jake Reed, who left for Bostik League Premier rivals Leiston on Monday. Brooks admits he is in the dark over exactly which players he will have at his disposal when the Blues go to Enfield Town on Saturday.

Asked if he will have enough players to see out the season, Brooks replied: “It’s a big concern. I can honestly say at the moment that I’m not quite sure who will be leaving.

“I’ve not got my head in the clouds – it’s a massive ask for us to get through the next 11 games. If we can get through them and stay up it really will be one of the club’s biggest achievements.

“My challenge is to get to the end of the season and get a team out there every game. The side is likely to differ from game to game.

“If a player wants to leave then he is in a position to do so.”
