Broadlands 3rd XV 5 - Fakenham 2nd XV 10

A Game at last!

Fakenham travelled to Great Yarmouth for only their second actual game of the season (the rest with one exception had all been cancelled by the opposition) to play Broadlands third team for a friendly game in dark and gloomy conditions with a light drizzle. The game started as it meant to continue with both sides playing at full tilt in the wet conditions and forcing errors in the other teams handling whilst they were attacking. Broadlands had the better of the first 10minutes as they pressed the Fakenham team back into their own 22 metre area. Each time Fakenham tried to relieve the pressure they turned the ball over usually from a knock on or being isolated in a ruck. It was 30 minutes into the game before the deadlock was broken

Fakenham 42 - Mistley 18 – Eastern Counties 2

 

A good win for Fakenham

Fakenham entertained Mistley rugby club from Essex in a Eastern Counties 2 League game at Fakenham. The pre-match luncheon was attended by 4 Mistley committee members
Fakenham had a poor start to the game when failing to deal with the opening kick-off meant one of the Fakenham players was caught in possession and was forced to hold on to the ball a bit too long which gave Mistley a very kickable penalty they happily accepted (0-3). Fakenham then pushed the attack and 6 minutes later drew level through a Tom Bane-Young penalty kick (3-3). Mistley then scored another penalty 4 minutes later (3-6) and it wes starting to look as though it might be one of those games. Fakenham went

Holt U16 v Fakenham U16 - 6.10.2013

An emphatic victory for Fakenham U16's

Holt U16 0 – 58 Fakenham U16

Fakenham U 16's travelled to Holt for their local derby on a warm, sunny sunday. Eleven of the Fakenham squad had been on a trip to Leicester Tigers for a pre-match Academy Training session the day before and were keen to put that training into effect. Unfortunately, Holt had a depleted squad due to outside committments and 3 Fakenham lads were loaned to them, thanks Alex, Zach and Tom L. This was, therefore, not a true reflection of Holt's usual play and although they put up a continued and committed game the score did not fully reflect the closeness of the game. Ashley opened the scoring with a try near the corner flag, which was soon followed by Lloyd making a good run to score and convert his try under the posts. A further two tries were scored in the first half, one converted by Ben W after he ran the ball in and another by Frosty to see a 24 point lead.
The second half saw the game continue with Fakenham keeping up the pressure and, despite Holt
