Kirkley & Pakefield FC club notes by Stuart Baker

K&P are off on their travels again tomorrow and they will be breaking new ground for their first ever trip to the Broad Street ground of Wivenhoe Town.

They will be aiming to tame The Dragons, who were relegated last year from the Rymans League and it has not been a bed of roses for the club as they have slid down the table after their money man left the club in all sorts of problems.

But fresh from a Spanish sabbatical, the terminator Julian Dicks has roared back into Essex. The former West Ham professional rode into town and has stabilised the side by adding some toughness into their play.

On the Kirkley front Nathan Stone will miss the rest of the season with suspension for a sending off at Walsham-le-Willows.

Allicion Blake or Jordan Blyth are most likely to take his place in the starting line-up.

The reserves need to win their last three away games to stand a chance of promotion and tomorrow travel to west Norfolk to meet Gayton.

Last week they collected a good 1-0 win at Bungay although they also missed a penalty.

K&P A team have their last scheduled game of the Notley's Lowestoft & District League season tomorrow away at Waveney Reserves, in Division One after drawing 1-1 (Luke Graham) at Beccles Caxton Reserves last Saturday.

K&P B team, fresh from a fine 6-0 demolition of Waveney A last Saturday, still have three more matches to play and tomorrow they travel to Blundeston Magpies Reserves in Division Three.

The youth team are out for revenge after a 7-1 drubbing at North Walsham as the young Angels visit Walmer Road next Wednesday, 7.45pm.

The seemingly-invincible vets are in the Suffolk Final action against Bungay at Beccles on Sunday afternoon.

The club's presentation night for all teams connected with K&P takes place on Saturday, May 9 in the marquee, 7.30pm

And finally the Sportsmans night takes place on Friday, May 15, which is a total sell out with ex-Liverpool and Republic of Ireland international Ronnie Whelan and Lester Crabtree.
