Fakenham offer fans free entry for game

Have your say

In a bid to boost falling gates, Fakenham Town will allow all fans into tomorrow’s home game against Cambridge University Press for free.

Fakenham hope the move will lead to a bumper crowd for the top-of-the-table clash in Division One of the Thurlow Nunn League.

Cambridge University Press are currently second in the league standings, three points clear of the Ghosts in fifth.

Fakenham boss Wayne Anderson said: “We’ve been looking at ways of trying to increase gates and hopefully this will help.

“We’re hoping that fans will see a cracking game of football and will want to come back and watch again before the end of the season.

“With us pushing for promotion, we want to get as many local supporters through the gate.

“We know Lynn and Norwich are both at home, but we’re hoping that people might come and have a look at us.”

On Tuesday night, Fakenham boosted their promotion hopes with a 3-0 victory over Team Bury.

James Tricks (2) and Kyle Plumb were on target and Anderson said: “Every player was superb.

“We’re playing some really good attacking football at the moment and are looking very sharp.”
