KIRKLEY and Pakefield won the inaugural Sailor Brown Memorial Trophy at Gorleston Football Club on Saturday.

The five team tournament was held as a tribute to Yarmouth born football legend Bert “Sailor” Brown.

Goals from Chris Henderson and Taz Grint gave Kirkley a comfortable 2-0 victory over the Greens in the final.

K&P shared a 2-2 draw with Gorleston in the group stages of the competition that also included Blofield United, Caister and Lowestoft.

The trophy is set to become an annual event in honour of Mr Brown, who died aged 93 last December.

During a distinguished career he played for Charlton, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa.

Mr Brown returned to his home town to manage Gorleston after his top flight career ended.

Amongst those attending the tournament was his daughter Julie Munro, who travelled down from Scotland for the occasion.
