LOOKING to continue their unbeaten start to 2011, the resurgent Royals are aiming high.
Fresh from a 3-1 away win at Wivenhoe, K&P will be looking to home comforts as they entertain Newmarket tomorrow before going to Wisbech on Tuesday in the Ridgeons League Cup.
The sixth-placed Royals host the 13th-placed Jockeys in an intriguing Ridgeons League clash (3pm kick off), which is being sponsored by Martyn, of Premier Racing Services.
“Our young warriors returned from the wilds of Wivenhoe with a 3-1 victory and three points that puts us up to sixth place in the Premier League,” a Royals spokesman said. “Goals from Ryan Crisp (2) and Liam Harvey-Cooper (penalty), once again proved that the young players who are stepping up to the plate are certainly doing the biz as we remain unbeaten in 2011.”
After a long trek home with a 1-0 defeat from their game at Sheringham last Saturday, James Hutchinson’s K&P Reserves have another long journey tomorrow as they visit Cabbell Park (kick off 2.30pm) to take on league leaders Cromer in the Anglian Combination Premier Division.
Matt Rudder and Rob Bunning’s K&P A team, after a 2-2 home draw against Gt Yarmouth Town Hall last Saturday are back on their travels tomorrow as they visit Ronnie Socratous’s in-form Blundeston Magpies at Denes High School (kick off 2.30pm) in the Notley’s Lowestoft and District League division one.
Neil Harris’ K&P B team are back on home soil at Walmer Road tomorrow (2.30pm KO) as they take on fifth placed Factory Arms in Notley’s Lowestoft and District League division three. They will be looking to carry on the form from last week’s 2-1 away win as they look to climb the table.
Last night, the table topping K&P youth team were due to entertain second-placed Dereham at Walmer Road.
Off the field, the club’s thanks went out to Mike Manning of the Lighthouse Diner in Whapload Road this week, for agreeing to sponsor K&P’s big match on March 9 when Needham Market visit Walmer Road in the semi finals of the Suffolk Premier Cup.
“We still require a Fairy Godmother to help us keep our community mini-bus, and any sponsorship will be a great help, as our current sponsor has had to withdraw,” a Royals spokesman said.
“If anyone out there can come up with funds enabling us to purchase it, we will re-sign it with your company’s name, logo and details and it will be seen across East Anglia.”
