Fakenham and Wells schools’ cluster in football fest

Blenheim Park Primary School hosted the Fakenham and Wells cluster football festival.

In the biggest-ever turnout in a competition of it’s kind, 12 teams were keen to win the World Cup-style trophy.

Fakenham B and Wells A both won their groups. In one of the quarter-finals Fakenham A knocked out pre-tournament favourites Langham with an extra-time golden goal to set up a semi-final with Fakenham B.

Astley took on Wells in the other semi-final. This was a close game with Wells winning 1-0. Fakenham A beat Fakenham B to set up a Wells A v Fakenham A final.

Wells A had beaten their opponents earlier in the day 1-0, but this time the score line was reversed and Fakenham A were champions.
