One month into the new season and team has already played 4 matches in the League and 3 in the Cup. Kirkley & Pakefield FC had a bit of bad luck in their league games but there is still plenty of time to turn things around. They lost 3 games and made one draw with Swaffham Town 3-3 on August 17. It seems that the champions of the 2000/01 League Division 1 are off their game. Well, good news for our guys!
KPFC lost 2-1 with Hadleigh United on August 13. The team fought hard for this match but they didn’t stand a chance against the 2013/14 Premier Division champions. They also lost 3-1 against Haverhil Rovers on August 27. This defeat is a bit unexpected considering that the Rovers haven’t won the Eastern Counties League since 1978 or the Division One Cup since 2007.
Their cup games were a bit better however. They won against Walsham Le Willows 1-2 on August 10 after a draw 0-0 on August 6. Considering these results, it would look like the two teams had a similar performance. The 2006/07 Division 1 champions must not be very happy about losing against Kirkley & Pakefield.
However, the guys lost 3-4 with Holbeach United on August 20 and this is that last game played by Kirkley & Pakefield in the Cup this season. The Lincolnshire based team won the Premier Division league several times, their most recent success being in 2012/13. Don’t get intimated guys! You will beat them next time. The goals on our part were scored by Stone, Woodrow (Pen) and Herbert. We are now looking forward to their League game with Thetford Town away on August 30. Let’s hope the team will focus and play good enough to secure a victory because we all know they definitely need one.
