Kirkley & Pakefield turned on the style with a convincing 5-0 FA Vase win at Walsham-le-Willows.

It took them only seven minutes to get the ball rolling when a long de Coteau throw in was flicked on by Russell Stock for Henderson to neatly score.

Stock, the undoubted man of the match, was involved in everything. Wen a Fox corner came across Dawson headed into the danger area and Stock finished it off. It became 3-0 just before the break with Stock grabbing his second by turning in a clever cross by Henderson.

On 52 minutes it was 4-0 as Stock teed up full back Tarin Grint, who smashed the ball home.

Kirkley keeper Robert Woodcock, who had been a spectator all afternoon, was alert enough to save an Andrew Cusack penalty on 62 minutes after Fox had tumbled.

The icing on the cake came with the fifth goal as Stock gave the ball a subtle touch to Fox, who jinked the ball past former Wroxham keeper Duncan McNally to end a fine performance and set the team up nicely for the biggest day un the club's history on Saturday at Hinckley in the 2nd round of the FA Cup.
