Kirkley & Pakefield FC club notes

WITH just two games remaining in a season, which has been full of achievement for K&P, hopes are high that they will end the campaign with a trophy.

Their best-ever finish of fourth in the Ridgeons League will be sealed tomorrow at Walmer Road, as they take on Ely in the final league encounter.

And then on Monday, all eyes will be firmly fixed on the Ridgeons League Cup Final at Diss as K&P seek to avenge defeats to Needham Market in the league and FA Vase this season with victory and silverware from the final game of the season.

'On Saturday we entertain Ely City and our thanks go to Brian Read and Read Builders of Norwich for their sponsorship,' a spokesman for The Royals said. Then, on Bank Holiday Monday, it's off to Diss for the League Cup Final against Needham Market, where we will gain revenge for that cold, freezing day in the FA Vase when both teams played out a thriller.'

After a run of four league defeats, the management have been buoyed by performances in the past two losses at Mildenhall and at home to Needham Market on Wednesday night, where the Suffolk side sealed the Ridgeons title with a 2-1 win.

On Tuesday this week, the Royal Reserves excelled in winning their Anglian Combination Division One title, which ensures promotion to senior football next season. Two goals from Rory French were enough for a 2-0 win over Scole United, with the celebrations starting after previous leaders Norwich St Johns surprisingly lost 5-1 to Poringland - meaning James Hutchinson's side not only won the league on goal difference, but they were deservedly promoted into the top flight after two seasons of near misses.

And making it a successful week, K&P U16 won the Under 16 Shield final at Gorleston on Sunday, while K&P Vets won the County Cup 5- 2 against Stowmarket Falcons.

'Off the field, we thank the Lowestoft Lions Club for funding the travel of our disabled football team to Ipswich and back four times over the next eight weeks,' The Royals spokesman said. 'The sum of �860 was most generous and will encourage them to carry on playing.'

Tomorrow's pre-match meal has unfortunately been postponed due to circumstances beyond the club's control, but it is still all systems go for the sportsman's dinner, youth and adult presentation nights and the All Star Wrestling event next month.

And this K&P also unveiled their season and matchday ticket prices (excluding cup matches) for next season, which are as follows:


FAMILY (two adult, two children) �125


OAP (over 60) �50

CHILD (under 16)�15



OAP �4
