A HEARTBREAKING end to Kirkley's season!

That was the Royals reaction this week as their hopes of ending the season with a trophy were extinguished by Needham Market - the fifth successive time that the Suffolk side have beaten K&P this campaign.

“A crowd of 360 were in attendance to see a well fought game between teams who obviously knew each others strengths and weaknesses,” a Royals spokesman said. A goal from Russell Stock cancelled out Danny Philips' opener - but amazingly the half-time score stood at 1-1, with Needham down to 10 men, after K&P missed three good chances and Robert Woodcock missed a penalty.

With extra time required, the Market Men swooped late on to complete the double of League and Cup glory, but the Ridgeons star man was youngster David Tarawalli, a player with so much potential for the future.

“But what a season we have had - the best by a mile and we can all look forward in confidence to next season, when, in the best condition the club has ever been in, we WILL aim and achieve promotion to the next level,” the Royals spokesman added.

“What we can all conceive - so we will all achieve - and this extends to all the adult and our many youth teams who have all gained success this year.”

Off the field a successful charity game last Sunday was hailed a tremendous success, befitting a much loved supporter of K&P.

This evening, Neil Razor Ruddock will be the special guest at the annual Sportsman's Evening - with more than 300 guests to be catered for.

And The Journal can today reveal that the club is in talks to launch a new K&P Royals Academy for the 2010/11 season.

“Talks are ongoing as to the formula and organisation of what will be a tremendous asset and benefit to our young players and the football club,” a Royals spokesman said.

The new academy is in the process of being set up and sponsors are being sought for this new venture - with more details in forthcoming weeks.
