THERE was joy for the town's top two football teams as both Kirkley and Pakefield and FA Vase finalists Lowestoft Town hit ten unanswered goals between them.

THERE was joy for the town's top two football teams as both Kirkley and Pakefield and FA Vase finalists Lowestoft Town hit ten unanswered goals between them.

K&P fired a six-goal salvo away at Ipswich Wanderers and triumphed 6-0 with a stunning success while Lowestoft warmed up for Wembley with a fine 4-0 win at Crown Meadow in their final home game of the season.

A hat-trick from leading scorer Nathan Stone, a brace for Lee Hunter and a goal for Scott Manning - who was playing in a unaccustomed wing role saw K&P on the rampage at Humber Doucy Lane.

There was more misery for Wanderers as defender Owen Symonds was sent off in the second half.

At Crown Meadow, Lowestoft sent the Trawlerboys home happy as the town prepare for Wembley. A vintage first-half display, inspired by Jamie Godbold, was the catalyst for the easy win over Walsham-le-Willows.

Godbold struck the bar with a fizzing drive inside the opening two minutes - and that was a sign for things to come for the visitors in the opening half.

The midfielder soon got onto the scoresheet, firing home after a corner wasn't cleared, before a fine run saw him pouch a second soon after.

Ally Mckenna was then fouled in the penalty box, and Richard Woodrow relinquished spot-kick duties leaving it for Godbold…but the hat-trick chance went begging as he hit the post.

Town didn't have to wait long for their third goal, when a fine cross from Carl Poppy was superbly brought down by Darren Cockrill before he calmly slotted home. And completing a fine first half of free-flowing attacking football, Hough's fierce drive was deflected into his own net by a Walsham defender.
