This annual fixture between these two clubs for the Crowley/Hogston cup, named after two past Presidents of Thetford and Fakenham respectfully, proved to be a tight affair as is often the case with this game. Both teams enjoyed periods of domination without fully taking advantage of the possession and territory gained to force home their advantage. Fakenham enjoyed the upper hand for the first period of the game threatening to score on numerous occasions but their attack was fraught with knock forwards and final passes not going to hand. It took 29 minutes to break the deadlock between the two sides as finally Fakenham won a 5 metres lineout and set up a driving maul which was touched down by Adam Lingwood, unfortunately the conversion was not made (0-5). The game was then played end to end with both sides attacking and defending with passion and commitment but the score remained on 0-5 to Fakenham at half time.
The second half started with both teams carrying on with the same degree
