Fakenham Town set for hard yards after heavy Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division loss
The Ghosts will be in for some extra training sessions over the next few weeks, as Fakenham Town manager Wayne Anderson gets set to really crack the whip, writes Tony Miles.
Anderson was clearly disappointed with the overall performance of his players in Saturday’s 6-1 defeat at Clipbush Park against Godmanchester Rovers, with his feelings all too clear at both half-time and after the final whistle.
With the Ghosts sitting just one point outside of the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division relegation zone – having played four more matches than Thetford Town, the side directly below them – the Ghosts’ boss will be looking for an instant improvement.
The visitors, who beat Fakenham 5-0 on home soil earlier in the season, took the lead after 14 minutes. But the hosts’ response was almost immediate with Ashley Jarvis netting the equaliser. Goddy went 2-1 up before the break and added four more in the second half as a difficult day for Anderson’s men got worse.
The Ghosts will have to play a waiting to see if they’re in action on Saturday. Their home game against Ipswich Wanderers will still take place – if the Suffolk club’s scheduled FA Vase trip to Bowers & Pitsea falls foul of the weather.
