IT will be a case of friends reunited for Kirkley & Pakefield tomorrow as they take on Walsham-le-Willows for the sixth time this season.

And the Royals will be keen for the game to beat the weather, as they are yet to lose against the Summer Road outfit this season.

They have achieved a hat-trick of wins to date, including 5-0 and 4-1 cup victories at the home of their Ridgeons League Premier Division rivals.

After taking on a team who they have a good record against, K&P are due to travel to Dereham next Tuesday hoping to turn around a poor run against the Magpies.

Dereham beat the Royals 3-0 at Walmer Road earlier in the season and Jon Reynolds and Stewart Larter's men will need to gain a measure of revenge if they are to continue their assaults on the top spots in the league in 2010.

The game has been rearranged after last weekend's meeting between the two sides was called off because of the weather. It will only go ahead provided Dereham do not have to replay tomorrow's Norfolk Senior Cup tie with Gorleston.

Only three matches were played in the Premier Division last week and all had an impact on teams around K&P.

With leaders Needham Market's game against third placed Leiston at Bloomfields falling foul of the conditions, CRC therefore took full advantage as their match at The Abbey Stadium went ahead, and they beat Haverhill Rovers 5-0 to climb above Needham into top spot by a single point, but with a superior goal difference and the bonus of two games in hand.

Shock of the day came at Dellwood Avenue where seventh placed Felixstowe & Walton were thrashed 5-1 by relegation-haunted neighbours Woodbridge Town.

In the only other game played, Debenham produced a heroic effort to stage their game at Maitlands but were left wishing that perhaps they should have had an afternoon off, as Wroxham won 1-0 and climbed above their hosts into eighth place.

Looking ahead to the Royals historic FA Vase clash at Needham Market on Saturday, January 16, the club have announced they will be running a supporters coach.

“The first supporters coach is filling up, and if you require transport please make Darren Bryant aware,” a club spokesman said.

Tomorrow, the K&P Reserves are at home to Long Stratton at Walmer Road.

With the bleak weather conditions hitting all local football, the K&P clubhouse will be open this weekend.

"If the football is cancelled the clubhouse will still be open and this is an ideal opportunity for team bonding sessions," a club spokesman said.

With opportunities to use the Wii computer, a table tennis table, dart boards, hot food, reduced prices on draught beer and free squash for all youth players will all be available at the K&P clubhouse.
