West Norfolk 2nd v Fakenham

West Norfolk 2nd XV 30 Fakenham 1st XV 15 – Eastern Counties 2

What a difference a week makes, Fakenham travelled to West Norfolk with a much more balanced squad hoping to forget the dismal performance of the previous week against Dereham. Even from the warmup it was obvious that improvements had been made in all departments and that there was a confidence that had been sadly lacking the previous week. The game started at quire a pace from the young West Norfolk side but Fakenham pushed them all the way with a dominant pack winning lots of the West Norfolk scrums and line outs. An early lead came with some good handling by the West Norfolk back line to

Dereham v Fakenham

 

Dereham 37 Fakenham 7

Fakenham played their first Eastern Counties 2 North League game of the season away to Dereham at the weekend, producing a most lack lustre start to the league program losing to a well organised and far more determined Dereham outfit. Dereham had lost two players to red cards in the first half and played 55mins with only 13 players - but they played with far more heart and a much better approach than Fakenham. The only bright spot for Fakenham was a try to Joe Bane-Young whereas Dereham could boast 3 tries from ex Fakenham winger Josh Gee amongst some good performances all round. Fakenham will have to improve quickly as there are other tough games to come within the next 4 weeks.
Fakenham will travel to West Norfolk this Saturday to play their second team in the EC2 North division kick off is 3pm.
