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 'This is very welcome': Go-ahead for HMO close to town centre
- 2 Suffolk braced for up to 10cm of snow as warnings upgraded
- 3 Tributes to man, 31, who died on Christmas Day
- 4 Nine still under investigation after man knifed in village brawl
- 5 Met Office warns of snow at weekend
- 6 Missing man found safe and well
- 7 Takeaway deli set to open in coastal town
- 8 Londoners fined for travelling to stay at second home in Norfolk
- 9 Junction closed for third crossing preparations
- 10 Groundworks start at site of new McDonald’s restaurant
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.
