Foxes v Hitchen

Foxes 21 Hitchen 31

The Foxes finally kicked off their season with their first match against Hitchin. Despite lacking in numbers the Foxes were full of energy and enthusiasm and Sunday's team included 2 new players making their Foxes debut. The Foxes started well, launching an intense attack on the opposition, remaining in their half for the first 15 minutes. Unfortunately the Foxes failed to capitalise so the first try came from Hitchin who were eventually able to break away and make good use of the pace they had on the wing. One try led to another despite some strong defence by the Foxes so by the end of the first half the score sat at 0-17.

The better side win on the day

Saturday saw a visit from Hadleigh in Essex who, like Fakenham, had to drop out of higher leagues a few years ago and work their way back up again. They made a very aggressive start to the match and soon had Fakenham under pressure resulting in a penalty for Hadleigh which opened the scoring. Fakenham responded quickly to level the game at 3 all through a penalty from Tom Bain-Young. Hadleigh again progressed into the Fakenham half and this time secured a try which was not converted. The home team replied quickly with another penalty from TB-Y to make the score 6 : 8. The game
