First Round Qualifying
St Ives Town 1 Kirkley & Pakefield 2
Saturday, 12 September 2009
Kirkley avenged a Vase defeat by St Ives two years ago with this Westwood Road success.
Goalkeeper Robert Woodcock gave Kirkley a 29th minute lead with a penalty awarded for a foul on Tamin Grant only for Simon Claridge to equalise for St Ives with another spot kick in the final minute of the first half after he was fouled by Chris Henderson.
The visitors progressed with a 58th minute Justin Fox goal, the visiting man rifling the ball home from edge of the box after intercepting Gavin Armitage's punch out.
Late home pressure went unrewarded as St Ives joined Cogenhoe as Kirkley's UCL victims. James Wallis was closest to earning a replay withan overhead kick which went narrowly wide.
