Kirkley & Pakefield FC notes

AFTER picking up back-to-back 2-1 home wins over the festive period, Kirkley & Pakefield will start the New Year well positioned in fifth place in the Ridgeons League.

On Saturday they kick off the 2010 run in with an intriguing trip to Norfolk to clash with 13th placed Dereham Town. And this game looks set to provide an interesting spectacle, as at this stage of the season K&P and Dereham are the top two supported sides in the Premier Division.

K&P head the table in terms of attendance statistics, as they average 201 fans for every home game at Walmer Road so far this season.

With 2,010 fans having gone through the turnstiles in ten home games thus far, the biggest turnout of K&P's season - and the Premier League campaign thus far - was witnessed on Boxing Day as 376 fans enjoyed a late festive treat as two goals from Nathan Stone secured victory in the north Suffolk derby with Leiston.

Dereham lie second in the attendance statistics stakes, with 1,704 fans turning out for their nine league games thus far.

With six points from the two league games against Leiston and Norwich United, Stewart Larter and Jon Reynolds' men go into Saturday's game in good spirits.

And off the field, the hard-working committee and steering group continue to prepare for the launch of a new club mascot for the soon-to-be-unveiled KP Royals Club, which will tie in with a competition to be run in the Lowestoft Journal.
