Former Fakenham Town manager Wayne Anderson starts life in his new role as Dereham Reserves this weekend.

His first match in charge is a return to The Walks, where he spent many years as a player to take on Lynn Reserves in the Thurlow Nunn First Division.

Lynn Res have enjoyed a successful first season in the league and are in eighth place in the table, eight places above Dereham Reserves.

Anderson is looking forward to returning to his former club and praised the work done by Lynn Res manager Jonathan Hawes.

He said: “Jonathan has done a great job over at Lynn and I am really looking forward to going back to the Walks in my new role over at Dereham. We know that it is going to be a tough game for us, it was a really competitive game the last time we met at Aldiss Park.

“Both sides consist mainly of a great crop of young players who want to progress and be knocking on the door of their respective first teams, which is great to see.

“I always have a soft spot for Lynn as it is where it all started for me, but on Saturday I will be focused on the job in hand which will be to try and take points off Lynn and get Dereham Reserves moving up the table.”
