With no 1st team fixture at the weekend as a result of Wymondham calling the game off it was left to Fakenham’s 2nd team to uphold the club honours with their EC3N fixture against Holt 2nd’s. Fakenham started this fixture positively, pleased to be able to field a team and bench after several weeks without a game.
Fakenham were into their game plan very quickly, and soon George Ready exploited the gaps left to score the first try after 10 minutes with Mark Allen adding the points for the conversion. Four minutes later Steven Clay stepped inside off his wing to score Fakenham's second try but this time the conversion was unsuccessful. To Holt's credit they came back into the game, creating lots of pressure in the Fakenham half. Fakenham defended well but they kept conceding penalties which allowed Holt to stay camped on the 5 metre line. Holt eventually scored on the 30-minute mark and this was the last score before Half time.
After the restart Holt caught Fakenham well and truly napping to score a quick try right from the off. Fakenham slowly got back in the game and built pressure, which unfortunately caused a yellow card for a high tackle. Fakenham kept calm and kicked for touch, capitalising with a try from the resulting lineout for Fakenham debutant, Terry Carter. A following period of positive play resulted in no score for either side but caused mistakes and
