K&P fail to open league account

RIDGEONS LEAGUE: After a pre-season where there were a couple of wins at Clacton and Sheringham and draws at Diss and Hadleigh with two defeats against Gorleston and Debenham, Kirkley & Pakefield went into the 2008 league campaign on the superb playing surface at CRC and lost 2-1.

After a pre-season where there were a couple of wins at Clacton and Sheringham and draws at Diss and Hadleigh with two defeats against Gorleston and Debenham, Kirkley & Pakefield went into the 2008 league campaign on the superb playing surface at CRC and lost 2-1.

New players Fox, Gilman, Blois and Cole took their place and it all went well in the first half, but the second half was not so good and CRC sneaked a winner with their second set piece goal.

Onto Tuesday at Leiston and another one-goal defeat.

Kirkley had debutant Robert Woodcock in goal but he blotted his copy book after an excellent match with a red card a minute from time.
