Kirkley and Pakefield notes by Stuart G Baker

AFTER two morale boosting victories, K&P take on Histon Reserves at Walmer Road tomorrow, kick off 3pm.

The Stutes are punching above their weight at present with the help of first team players in midweek fixtures.

Then next Wednesday evening, Felixstowe and Walton pay a visit to Walmer Road in the league, 7.45pm KO. They are under new management with the much travelled combination of Glen Driver and Tony Kinsella in charge.

Between now and Christmas, K&P have nine home fixtures with the latest addition being the League Cup, which has thrown up a mouthwatering clash with FA Cup giantkillers Leiston. This match takes place on Wednesday, November 26.

Midfielder Ian Dawson is winning his battle with a groin strain and may be fit enough for the next two matches whilst Allicion Blake looked like he had not lost any of his sharpness when he returned to the squad last week.

After a distinctly bad showing at Stalham, which resulted in a 2-0 defeat for the reserves, James Hutchinson's team returned to Walmer Road on Tuesday night for a match that rained goals.

K&P reserves won 8-4 against a no holds barred Scole side, who took no prisoners, with Wayne Twomlow bagging a nap hand. They have no game tomorrow but on Tuesday evening, 7.30pm at Walmer Road, they entertain local rivals Corton in the second round of the Mummery Cup, extra time and penalties.

The A team return to action after a blank weekend with a visit to Norton in the league cup, while the B team - after a fine 3-1 away win at Spexhall reserves - are at home tomorrow in the John Moore Shield against Corton White Horse Seltic Reserves.

The youth team came unstuck with some debatable refereeing decisions and lost 2-1 to Dereham Youth. Max Blowers converted a penalty but he also missed one as well. Several team changes did not help the team's cause.

The club's next pre match meal is before the Wivenhoe game next Saturday, November 8.
