FAKENHAM Town Football Club hosted a Year 3 and 4 football festival for the Fakenham cluster of primary schools. The club provided officials and refreshments during the afternoon.

Matt Whitaker, school sports co-ordinator from Fakenham High School, organised the event. His role is allowing primary schools, the high school and community clubs to all work together to achieve more sporting opportunities for pupils.

The afternoon provided some good football, and going into the final round of matches two teams could have won the competition.

A 'winner takes all' encounter between Blenheim Park and Astley saw Astley run out 4-1 winners to remain unbeaten all day. Blenheim were runners up with Fakenham A securing third spot.
