Fakenham hosted the Banham cup last weekend; once an annual fixture, it has not been played for 5 years but both Fakenham and Hilt have worked on their fixture lists to reinstate the fixture this season and going forward. The pre-match lunch, sponsored by Banham seed merchants, was well attended with nearly 80 people sitting down to an excellent meal. With the fine weather at the weekend a good-sized crowd of 3-400 turned out to see this local derby game.
Fakenham were to take the early plaudits scoring first when centre Ian Williamson forced his

Fakenham hosted this top of the league clash for EC2 North on a god, bright, dry and breezy day in front of a large crowd swelled by the pre-match lunch sponsored by new sponsor Peniston. The game started as a tense affair with Fakenham uncharacteristically dropping passes and with a kick charged down in their own 22-metre area that allowed Diss to press forward. Chances were difficult and hard fought for, but the Fakenham mood lifted when George Ready scored a try to put the first points on the board, unfortunately the attempted conversion was caught by the wind and missed it’s target 5-0. Diss responded from the restart but the Fakenham defence held firm (as it has done so often this season so when the home side infringed at

Fakenham travelled to this EC2 North game knowing a win would ensure the league title and a draw would leave an exceptionally small mathematical opportunity for Diss to snatch the title. Diss had a home walkover (5 points) against Dereham at the weekend, which meant that Fakenham would have to push hard for the victory.  The game kicked off and North Walsham pressed forward from the whistle and scored an unconverted try to take a 5-0 lead.     Fakenham in response struck back within 3 minutes when inside centre Joe Bane-Young darted though the Walsham defence to score close to the post and his brother Tom Bane-Young added the conversion 5-7.  Walsham pushed

After a weeks layoff as a result of late drawing of Cup fixtures, Fakenham entertained West Norfolk second team last weekend in this EC2 North league game following a substantial win against Norwich’s second team in the previous round of league fixtures. West Norfolk were an unknown quantity, sometimes fielding a strong side and other times cancelling fixtures so form was to be no guide. Fakenham started the stronger when Ian Williamson crossed the line to score a try in the opening minutes for the home side with the extra points added by Tom Bane-Young. 7-0. West Norfolk responded quickly though after Fakenham were penalised three times in a row allowing the visitors to press forwards and score an unconverted try 7-5. Fakenham dominance soon reasserted itself though
