EXPERIENCED midfielder Gary Holt admits he may not be around to help Ryman League Division One North club Lowestoft Town make another step up the non-League Pyramid in the spring.

EXPERIENCED midfielder Gary Holt admits he may not be around to help Ryman League Division One North club Lowestoft Town make another step up the non-League Pyramid in the spring.

The Scotsman joined the Trawler Boys in October, after leaving his player-coach role at Coca-Cola League One side Colchester United.

Although Holt has signed until the end of the season, he was free to talk to League clubs from the start of the New Year and acknowledges he may miss out on any spring promotion parties at Crown Meadow should a suitable offer in the professional game come along.

Holt said: “I'm contracted to the end of the season but we'll all have to wait and see what happens. I'm eligible to sign for a League club as of January 1st, so if a coaching role or something like that comes up then I'd be silly not to talk about it.”

Like much of the country's non-League calendar, Lowestoft have been without a game since the 3-1 win over Thamesmead Town on December 19th due to the freezing weather.

“It's been interesting; it's just a shame we were going so well that suddenly the weather puts an end to that, but it's one of those things,” said Holt. “No one has played any games so we're in the same boat as everyone else. You've got to take it on the chin and get on with it.”

Lowestoft are in the box seat for a charge at promotion to the Ryman Premier Division, three points clear at the top of Division One North with at least two games in hand on their nearest challengers.

Holt said: “The league position has come from hard work and the coaching staff not letting us rest on our laurels. It's not letting you just turn up and expect to win the game. You have to put the hard work in to get there.

“It's like in any level of football. You have got to do the hard work and the horrible stuff to get the rewards and we're putting that in week after week - and it's bearing fruit at the moment.”
