Kirkley & Pakefield FC club notes
ANOTHER good win last Saturday kept the Royals rolling on their recent unbeaten run, as they beat bottom of the table Wivenhoe 4-2.
But disaster struck in midweek as their resurgence at the top of the Rridgeons League ended at second-placed CRC, who now look to be in a two-way title fight with Needham Market.

A 4-1 defeat and injury to Nathan Stone, which is likely to keep him out of tomorrow's clash at Wisbech, was not a true reflection from a good performance on the night.
But The Royals were made to pay for two individual errors which effectively killed the game and left them 3-0 down at the interval.
- 1 Man arrested and cannabis seized as Kestrel team swoops on town
- 2 Suffolk to be in Tier Two in local lockdown system
- 3 Coup for Blues with signing of former Norwich City youngster
- 4 Woman airlifted to hospital after crash
- 5 How do Tier 1 areas like Cornwall compare to Suffolk?
- 6 Club puts safety and well-being first as facility is 'closed to all'
- 7 Cyclist attacks car with handlebars and threatens driver
- 8 New appeal as pregnant woman goes missing again
- 9 Safety plea after child pictured at base of crumbling cliff
- 10 Merger plans unveiled for four pupil referral unit schools
Needing a point to finish fourth - at worst - in the table, The Royals still have a lot to play in their final three league games and League Cup Final with Needham on bank holiday Monday, May 3.
K&P travel to Wisbech tomorrow for the previously postponed match against the Fen Tigers. 'Your support will be invaluable - so please try and be there Royalers!' a club spokesman said.
Off the field, the club continues to make great strides towards organising the popular annual Sportsman's Evening with Neil Ruddock on May 7 - which remains 'on schedule' according to the club spokesman - with a special competition to be held in a forthcoming edition of The Journal for tickets on this sold-out night.
An All Star Wrestling bonanza will take place in the marquee at Walmer Road on Sunday, May 16th at 6pm (doors open at 5.15pm). For K&P members the concession prices are �7 per person with �25 for a family ticket of two adults, two children. The show will include bash the baddy, where the audience can take part and for tickets e-mail Gill on email@example.com or telephone 01502 561589.
A special Andy Jefford memorial charity match will be held on Sunday, May 2 as it features the adult managers versus the club's youth managers.
Entrance is �3 for adults and �2 for children, with a bouncy slide, bar-be-cue, and live bands all day! All profits will go towards Andy Jefford's chosen charity the Patrick Stead Hospital.
Finally, K&P sends out many congratulations to Lowestoft Town on being crowned league champions once more.
