Thurlow Nunn League
FC Clacton 4
Fakenham Town 1
Wayne Anderson’s last game in charge of Fakenham Town ended in a surprising heavy defeat away at FC Clacton.
The hosts have been threatened by relegation for the majority of the current season, but back to back wins have resulted in them pulling away from the bottom of the table, but left Fakenham feeling frustrated after a game they would have expected to win.
The Ghosts started brightly enough but could only hit the woodwork with two good early chances and Clacton were quick to punish the visitors for poor finishing when Aaron Condon capitalised on a poor goal kick to put his side ahead, making amends for an early poor penalty missed.
Tom Holdstock extended the advantage in the second before the Ghosts pulled a goal back courtesy of Sam Garner.
Condon scored the second penalty of the afternoon before Sean Hillier finished from close range to make sure of the win, while bagging his 179th Clacton goal.
Anderson said: “It’s been a really enjoyable five years and I have got a lot of memories that I will take away from it and it is just a shame that it ended the way that it did today.”
