Fakenham High School rugby teams represented Norfolk at the London North Region Emerging Schools Rugby Festival at Bishop's Stortford.

To have three teams at such an event is an incredible achievement, to go on and win two trophies was outstanding!

The Year 8 girls' team, who have only been playing together for a couple of months, narrowly missed out on qualifying for the third/fourth place play-off match on points difference.

The Year 7 boys' team were unbeaten throughout the tournament, and despite going behind in the final ended up convincing winners.

The Year 9 boys faced tough opposition in the group stage, their first game was against a team that had beaten them twice at the Eastern Counties event two weeks before.

An excellent draw in that match set them up for the rest of the competition and they won the rest of their games.
