Fakenham Ghosts U10 travelled to Springwood School for the Mid Norfolk Youth League finals day to play their Subsidiary Cup final against St Edmunds Pride.

To even reach the final had been a momentous effort from a team that had only been put together at the start of season and everyone involved was fully aware that it would take something special to lift the trophy against a team that had gone the whole season unbeaten.

The Ghosts started very brightly and went close to opening the scoring twice through Jack and Ben. This surprised St Edmunds and they were unable to get into game due to the tenacity of Brandon, Cameron and Jack in midfield and the solid defence of Travis and Daniel.

The Ghosts took a deserved lead when Brandon scored with an excellent free-kick from 20 yards which swerved and dipped as it flew past the helpless keeper. St Edmunds found it difficult to break through in open play but managed to draw level with a good headed goal from a corner.

The Ghosts who were soon back in front again through Brandon scoring from a similar position but this time from a cracking shot in open play. The whole team were all on top of their game, and when Dominic and Kai were introduced they got straight into the game to ensure the momentum remained with the Ghosts. Half-time: 2-1.

St Edmunds came out fired up for the second half but the Ghosts were in no mood to surrender their lead and only once did St Edmunds break through and Jamie was called upon to make a save of any note.

The opposition became more frustrated and it looked more likely that the Ghosts would extend their lead, but efforts from Jack, Cameron and Brandon all went agonisingly close. The final whistle was greeted with jubilation and a realisation of what a fantastic success the lads had not only achieved but thoroughly deserved. Final score: 2-1.

Team: Jamie, Travis, Daniel, Cameron, Brandon, Jack, Ben, Kai and Dominic.

MoM: Shared between the team and their supporters.
