Fakenham Town must be wishing the weather had turned as cold as it was in much of the rest of the country on Saturday.

It finished 1-1 between the sides a fortnight ago, but this time the Ghosts returned empty-handed on points as this fixture did not succumb to snow, ice or rain as in games elsewhere.

A delayed kick-off meant proceedings began at 3.15pm, and Joshua Youngs was on target for the visiting team.

Up next for Fakenham first team, who are second from bottom in the table, is the visit of Hadleigh United on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Reserves’ fixture was touch-and-go since the Clipbush Park pitch was frozen on Saturday morning, with a further inspection due at 11am. The pitch was passed as fit but the Reserves lost 1-2 against Watton United at full time.
