THE Ghosts were left shell-shocked by a side they had nearly beat on their own pitch a month earlier.
All Fakenham's recent good form was left the wrong side of the touchline as Clacton took full revenge for seeing their promotion hopes wrecked by the Ghosts in the 1-1 draw in early April.
The Town side of that day simply did not turn up on Saturday. By half-time James Dunkley had completed a hat-trick as Clacton rattled five past a disorganised home defence.
Supporters' player of the season Mark Betts and Karl Pask at last got some service just after half-time and threatened to give Fakenham some consolation, but two more goals, including Dunkley's fourth, rubbed salt into the wounds. Had it not been for keeper Chris Cracknell, the margin would have been wider.
To add to the Ghosts' woes, the reserve side, which finished a poor bottom of Anglian Combination Division Two, could not raise a full squad and crashed 11-1 at Norwich St Johns.
