Kirkley & Pakefield FC are launching an appeal with a difference today as they begin a search for a nickname.

The Ridgeons League Premier Division outfit are on the lookout for a marvellous moniker their fans can shout from the stands at Walmer Road - and are asking Journal readers for help.

Early suggestions include The Sunrisers and The Kirks, but K&P's commerical manager David Woodruff says the club is open to all suggestions.

“We are currently looking at ideas for a terrace name for the club,” he said.

“For example, Arsenal are the Gunners and Norwich are the Canaries so if anyone has any ideas for a name, please get in touch, with the club.”

Anyone with any ideas can e-mail Mark Boggis at The Journal, and they will be passed on to the club.

Meanwhile, on the pitch, Nick Shorten's men entertain Norwich United in the FA Vase tomorrow, and return to league action on Wednesday at home to Wroxham at Walmer Road.

And next Friday, the club will be holding their inaugural charity golf day at Rookery Park as funds are raised and split between K&P and the new Palliative Care Unit at James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.

Over the bascule bridge, Lowestoft Town, are hoping to bounce back after their first defeat of the season.

Town were knocked out of the FA Cup 2-0 by Cambridge City on Saturday, but have a big week ahead of them with games at Stanway Rovers and at home to unbeaten Leiston at Crown Meadow on Tuesday.

“It promises to be a huge week for us and it will be a good test to see how much progress we have made,” joint manager Micky Chapman said.

Off the field, the cash is still rolling in from The Trawler Boys sponsored bike ride to Walsham-le-Willows as funds are raised for a brand new stand at Crown Meadow.

“We look odds on to raise around £600 and a big thank you comes from Scott McGovern, Trevor Page and Shaun Cole for your support,” a club spokesperson said.
