Fakenham 2, Wroxham 3

Fakenham's first home friendly of the season saw them narrowly beaten by a strong Wroxham side who were trialling some new players in the wake of losing some in the close season.

Fakenham took the lead through Ben Coe, whose pace was causing problems with the visitors' defence all afternoon. Wroxham equalised before a powerful header from Lee Hyde regained the lead just before half-time.

Fakenham were finding plenty of space on the wide expanses of Clipbush Park and Wroxham contributed to a lively and entertaining game. They drew level on the hour with a well taken long-range shot, before clinching the game in the final minutes through Damian Hilton.

Fakenham travelled to Sheringham to take on a strong Anglian Combination side, with newly installed manager John Musgrove at the helm for the Shrimpers.

Fakenham, with new signing Nicky Bunting leading the line, started strongly on a hard bumpy pitch and took the lead when Bunting slotted home a penalty in the opening minutes. Jason Cole, taking up a midfield role, then fired the Ghosts further ahead to take the Ghosts into an interval lead.

But several changes from both sides saw the home side score twice in the second half to level the scores. Once again this was a very good test for a new-look Fakenham side, that looked very capable against strong local opposition.
