Kirkley & Pakefield 3 Swaffham 3

For Swaffham, Jack Defty was unable to bundle a ball into the net on Wednesday at a capable Kirkley side.

The home side took the lead in the 32nd minute, a penalty from a handball, ’keeper Scott Cruickshank just unable to deflect the shot. Kirkley made it two with five minutes of the half left, from distance.

In the 61st minute, Defty crossed for Nick Castellan to knock past the keeper. Twelve minutes later, the Pedlars drew level, Ashley Keegan playing Alex Vincent through, to round the keeper and convert. Kirkley then netted their second rocket of the night.

Swaffham again levelled with two minutes to go: Cruickshank with a goal kick, played on by Danny Tindall for Vincent to beat the left back, and slot his shot past the keeper. The Pedlars next weekend host Ipswich Wanderers at Shoemakers Lane.

On Wednesday, the Under 18’s at Aylsham had a convincing 6-0 victory, goals from Callum Robinson, Aaron Smith and a brace for both Sam Carter and Jack Prentice. On Thursday they host Easton & Otley College, kick off 7.45pm.
