Kirkley & Pakefield remain a bogey team for Saffron Walden Town after inflicting another defeat on Stuart Wardley’s men at Catons Lane on Tuesday night.

Two first-half goals saw the away side claim the spoils and a fifth straight league win over Town from five meetings.

Kyle Plum put the visitors ahead on 15 minutes, firing home from 15 yards although Perry Moody appeared to be impeded trying to make a headed clearance on the edge of the box in the build-up.

The Bloods responded with James Thomas’ header superbly kept out by a one-handed Louis Tibbles save.

Then, Matt Snelling hit the right-hand post as the hosts piled on the pressure.

That impetus was quelled five minutes before half-time when towering Jack Herbert rose to nod a free-kick inside the far post for 2-0.

Early in the second half, Graeme Turner was denied by the inspired Tibbles before Joe Murphy headed wide when he should have scored.

Kids can enter this Saturday’s final home league game of the season, against Thetford Town, free of charge with a paying adult.

Kick-off at Catons Lane is 3pm.
