No Green Points as Luke sees Red
By David Hardy
Gorleston made three changes for the short trip over the border.
Jackson Ramm and Ryan Fuller dropped to the bench and Jordan Cantwell was unavailable. In came Luke Goreham, Nelson Carinhas and Peter Lambert.
It was the worst possible start for Gorleston when they fell behind in the second minute through an excellent Goldspink strike.
Kirkley doubled their lead in the seventh minute through Haylock.
The hosts had a number of chances and the Greens were grateful to get to half time with the deficit only two.
Stewart Larter made a double substitution at the break with Fuller and Ramm replacing Shade and Hannant.
Gorleston got themselves back in the game in the 52nd minute when a corner was swung in and Lambert was on hand for a tap in. Lambo has now moved ahead of Phil Wooldridge and Christy Finch in the all time goal scoring charts.
The Greens were much better in the second half but couldn't find the equaliser and to compound their misery Luke Goreham was shown a red card in injury time for a raised arm.
Gorleston: Tom Coombe, Jack Tipple, Luke Goreham, Elliott Hannant (Ryan Fuller 46), David Shade (Jackson Ramm 46), Aarron Taylor (c), Nelson Carinhas, Ross Gilfedder, Peter Lambert, Joel Watts;
