Kirkley & Pakefield 5, Wroxham 1

Ross King scored a hat-trick and created another goal as Kirkley & Pakefield beat Wroxham 5-1.

The first goal came on 33 minutes when Kyle Baker's cross was dropped by Wroxham goalkeeper Andy Plummer, allowing King to tap home from close range.

The lead was doubled three minutes later as King latched on to Scott Woodcock's through ball and expertly chipped the advancing keeper from the edge of the box.

With a few changes at half-time for both teams, it was the Royals who claimed the third goal as Plummer could only parry King's effort into the path of Ross Catchpole, who was on hand to fire home the rebound.

Wroxham were quick to respond as Jordan Smith was beaten after some good work from substitute Claudio Langlois to make the score 3-1.
