IT promises to be a very busy few days ahead at Walmer Road - with three top matches in store in the next six days.
Tonight (Friday) K&P Reserves – after two league defeats, most recently a 4-1 reverse at Spixworth last Saturday – will be aiming to bounce back when they entertain high-flying Mattishall in the Mummery Cup second round, kick off 7.30pm.
Attentions will then turn to the first team tomorrow (Saturday) as they entertain the youngsters from CRC in a top-of-the-table clash, sponsored by Sam Russell, which kicks off at 3pm, with locals advised to come along and support the Royals tonight and tomorrow.
Last Saturday, the comeback K&P kids drew 2-2 with Hadleigh.
“Prior to the match, 20 or so of our many youth teams, turned up to watch the game in their new Designer Storm Jackets and they made a sight to be proud of,” a Royals spokesman said.
“Our thanks go to our many managers who give their time and dedication to these young boys, girls and disabled children –- as more than 600 pass through our facility each week.”
In a busy week of action at K&P, next Wednesday sees the might of Leiston come to Walmer Road in a game sponsored by The Odd Fellows PH.
After a cup defeat and league draw respectively for the A and B team, Matt Rudder and Rob Bunning’s A team will be aiming to bounce back in the league tomorrow as they entertain Blundeston Magpies at Walmer Road (2.30pm KO).
