Kirkley & Pakefield FC notes

PUBLISHED: 17:17 30 September 2010




CONTINUING to top the table despite a mixed bag of results, a draw and defeat this week, have been tempered by the fact that the Royals still stand tall at the summit of the Ridgeons League Premier Division.

After going eight games without defeat, the run was ended on Wednesday by Wroxham – with the Norfolk side quickly doubling K&P after they inflicted the first loss on Jon Reynolds’ men on August 24.

The Royals, who drew 0-0 away at Haverhill last Saturday and then slipped in the wet at Walmer Road to a 2-0 home defeat to Wroxham – only their second Ridgeons League reverse this season – on Wednesday, are away to mid-table Ely City tomorrow ahead of a tough trip to third placed Dereham next Tuesday.

K&P are next in action at Walmer Road on Saturday, October 9, when they entertain the fen tigers of Wisbech, with the club thanking Nick, of Cyril Sweett of Norwich, for sponsoring this game.

The following week, K&P host their opening pre-match meal of the new season on October 16, ahead of the game against an improved Hadleigh side.

“Open to all, the cost is £16.50 per head (less to K&P season ticket holders), and commences at noon for 12.30pm sit down,” a club spokesman said.

Please telephone Dave Woodruff on 07961 564358 to book.

After an equally frustrating week, which saw them lose 4-1 at home to Cromer last Saturday, and then draw 3-3 with Loddon – having been 3-1 up with minutes to go – James Hutchinson’s Reserves will be aiming to bounce back in the cup tomorrow when they travel to Woodbridge Athletic Reserves away.

After slipping to ninth in the Lowestoft and District League division one following their 6-0 away defeat at league leaders Hearts of Oak last Saturday, Matt Rudder and Rob Bunning’s K&P A team will be aiming to get back on track tomorrow with a tough game at home to an unbeaten Oxford Arms side, who sit in second place.

Neil Harris’ young K&P B team will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten start to the Lowestoft and District League division three campaign tomorrow, which now sees them top the table after a good performance in beating Oxford Arms Reserves 4-0 ((Liam Gowing with two, Ben Atkins, Martin Saunders) last Saturday.

Tomorrow they travel to Dip Farm to take on eighth placed Factory Arms.
