Fakenham 12 – 3 Diss 2nd - Eastern Counties 2N

A tough encounter was expected against a Diss side who always provide stern opposition and have not lost to Fakenham for several years.
Fakenham started positively and were playing with confidence, regularly breaking through the Diss defence and forcing an early penalty which Tom Bane Young converted. Fakenham were then obviously trying to avoid the complacency of last week so upped their intensity and their defensive aggression with Rory Singleton finding many gaps at the breakdown to either break through or steal the ball. Unfortunately this intensity led to a lack of discipline with Fakenham giving away far too many penalties which disrupted their patterns of play and well and truly kept Diss in the game but both side made handling errors at crucial phases in the attack having got themselves into good field position. Diss had many attemts at the Fakenham line but resolute defence kept

West Norfolk 2nd 7 - Fakenham 26 - Eastern Counties 2N

Fakenham travelled to West Norfolk for this EC2n fixture on the back of their 71-0 demolition of Beccles a couple of weeks ago. The side was missing a couple of players through injury but was still reasonably strong. Weather conditions on arrival at the ground were awful; the heavy rain of the morning thankfully easing but there was still a strong crosswind to contend with on the pitch that the game had been moved to (the main pitch was waterlogged in parts).
Fakenham started off brightly enough and posted the first score after only 2 minutes when a good move from the backs put Jack Whiteside through on a good run to outpace the West defense and score under the posts, the conversion being

Fakenham 2nds – 11 v Broadland 2nds – 10

This EC4 North league match saw Fakenham field a full side with one on the bench for the first time for a league game this season giving the home side a welcome lift before the start. The game kicked off and both sides showed their intent to win the match with good forceful play without penetrating the defence to score. Territory was hard won but then poor handling or infringements at the breakdown cost the attacking side possession allowing the defending side to relieve the pressure. This pattern continued until one Fakenham attack reached the 22m area and saw Broadland's get frustrated and
