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.
