Kirkley & Pakefield FC club notes
WITH the weather being the solitary winner again last weekend, most games fell foul of the conditions on Saturday - with the first team's trip to Histon Reserves aborted, while the youth teams games on Sunday were all cancelled.
The reserves took centre stage at Walmer Road last Saturday, and drew 0-0 with sixth-placed Hindringham. James Hutchinson's side still remain in second place in Anglian Combination division one, in what is turning out to be a tight league.
