A DEVASTATING final 15-minute spell sealed an emphatic 5-0 victory for Kirkley & Pakefield in the Ridgeons Premier League, on Saturday, after they found the net four times at the close of the match.

Starting off on the front foot, Chris Henderson's speed set up Russell Stock on three minutes followed by a Scott Martin piledriver whilst the visitors were restricted to long-range shots.

Kirkley took the lead on 17 minutes when a superbly-weighted pass by Stock to Nathan Stone saw him beat keeper Rix. Just before the break, an excellent Scott Manning cross was headed on to the angle of the crossbar by Stone.

King's Lynn came out strongly and Robert Woodcock made an excellent save from Stephen Harvey. Sam Darlow headed off the line to deny Stock but the elusive second goal came on 75 minutes when a deep Stone cross was headed in at the far post by Henderson.

The third also came from Stock who turned and placed the ball past keeper Rix. The fourth on 85 minutes came when Lee Hyde fouled Henderson in the box and keeper Woodcock scored from the spot. Kirkley went nap via the head of centre back James Cole following a flighted cross by substitute Harvey-Cooper.
