Fakenham 29 Mildenhall Red Lodge 0

Fakenham played host to Mildenhall Red Lodge for this EC2 league fixture with renewed optimism as players returned from injury to strengthen the squad. With a pre-match lunch sponsored by Whitecroft Lighting, Fakenham were determined to put their recent form behind them and give the sponsors and the assembled spectators something to cheer.
Fakenham started the game brightly but Mildenhall responded and competed well. Fakenham took the lead with a swift handling move through the backs and Colm Hunt cut a great line to take the ball past the defence and score under the posts, the try was converted by Tom Bane-Young (7-0). Mildenhall rallied and attacked and the game was full on and committed from both sides, Fakenham's defence was resolute and kept Mildenhall out of the danger area. As Fakenham recovered and attacked, Mildenhall gave a penalty away in a kickable position and Tom Bane-Young duly kicked the points and the score
