Fakenham Town setting sights higher

Fakenham Town manager Wayne Anderson, boosted by better news on the injury front ahead of Saturday’s home league match with Godmanchester, is confident of a top-eight finish after campaigns which have seen the Ghosts struggling at the foot of the Ridgeons first division, writes John Cushion.

“We are still building, it’s going to take time. We got off to a good start, we are sitting mid-table and I still feel we can finish in the top eight if things go to plan,” he said this week.

Central defender Lee Hyde is away on honeymoon, but Anderson was pleased at the way Luke Greer had played in his place.

With Harry Felton injured, he was concerned for the right back position, but with skipper Stephen Harvey, Danny Foulsham and James Bamford recovering from injuries, Anderson felt things were starting to look better for the weekend game.

Striker Karl Pask has rejoined the club from Hindringham, and Anderson felt his partnership with Nicky Bunting, who is also back from injury, looked really promising.

Fakenham Reserves on Saturday are at home to Heacham in the Junior Cup, ko 2pm.

On the social front, tomorrow (Friday) night sees bingo in the Clipbush Park clubhouse, 7.30pm start, free admission.
