A good start to the New Year!
Fakenham travelled to Dereham on the back of a 7 game winning streak, full of confidence and fielding a team stronger than the last time the two sides met at Fakenham. The game started with Dereham on the attack but the new found discipline in defence from Fakenham repelled them and allowed them to launch attacks of their own. Fakenham spurned a chance to take the lead when Tom Bane-Young pushed his penalty kick and miss out on three points. Dereham breathed a sigh of relief and then set about building the pressure on Fakenham and pushed hard for the first score of the game, the breakthrough came when the number eight sneaked down the blind side of the ruck and beat the covering tackles to score
