Meanwhile, 45 years on from winning the Norfolk Senior Cup the first time, The Ghosts are looking to set up a reunion – and the club needs help.
Anyone that has ever featured in a cup winning side is urged to get in contact with the club’s press officer, Tony Miles.
Fakenham Town Football Club are set to host a Norfolk Senior Cup winners reunion, 45 years on from when the club first won the competition.
The 1970-1971 campaign is the first of the seven times that the trophy has been lifted, and after a suggestion from a member of that squad the Ghosts are looking to organise something for the last home game of the season – Haverhill Rovers on April 23.
The club are now seeking to hear from any former player that featured in any of the wins, especially the initial 1970/71 team.
Miles said: “The suggestion came in an email from David Harris, a member of the first team to win the title and we’re now looking to do something for the last home game, when of course we announce the Supporters’ Player Of The Season as well.
“We’re wanting to extend it to anyone that’s ever won the tournament wearing a Fakenham shirt, and are trying to contact as many people as possible in the hope they’ll come along. With Norwich not now playing that day, with luck we’ll get a good crowd and as many of the cup winners there as possible.”
Anyone who has ever featured in a Ghosts cup win is urged to contact Tony on 07899057877, or by email on webmaster@fakenhamtown fc.co.uk
Swaffham Town 2
Felixstowe & Walton
The end of a tough week for the Pedlars, away to third in the division Godmanchester on Wednesday which finished as a 6-1 defeat, and then at home to fourth-spot Felixstowe.
No points from either game left them in a precarious position in the relegation zone.
Alex Vincent scored at Godmanchester.
On Saturday some great work by groundstaff kept the game on at Shoemakers Lane following the heavy rainfall in the week.
The Pedlars took the lead in the ninth minute, Vincent bringing the ball tight down the left wing and whipping a cross two yards from the touchline, and the ball was headed/fumbled into the net by the Felixstowe centre back.
The visitors equalised three minutes later and then took the lead in the 16th minute.
Swaffham drew the score back in the 32nd minute.
Vincent was brought down from behind. He converted the penalty, driving the ball into the left hand bottom corner.
Felixstowe retook the lead in the 77th minute, a soft penalty, Dean ‘Rocky’ Mayes seen to have brought down the attacker.
Swaffham were caught on the counter in the 88th minute for Felixstowe to put the game to bed.
There are four games remaining for the Pedlars to keep themselves afloat.
The Under 18’s play their last Youth League game on Thursday evening at home to CSF Canaries. They will be hoping to finish on a high following a successful season.
