There was a sensational finale to the Ridgeons Youth East Section when a jubilant Kirkley won the match by the necessary two goals to become champions for the first time in a 4-2 victory over Gorleston Town Youth but they had to do it the hard way losing keeper Callum King who was sent off on the hour mark for handling the ball outside the box and then soon after lost leading marksman James Bemmant. Earlier in the match, Lawrie Newberry and Elliot Hunter put Kirkley two-up followed by a Chris Henderson special then Henderson teed up Bemmant for a 4-1 half-time scoreline. With five minutes left Forbes put the ball in past stand-in keeper Elliot Hunter to set up a tense last ten minutes. Kirkley and Pakefield now play King's Lynn Youth at home at Walmer Road on Monday night 7.45pm in the semi-final stage of the Ridgeons Youth League competition.
