Sport - Football: Ghosts are rocked by Boyce injury

Have your say

Fakenham Town have been rocked by an injury to star striker Ben Boyce.

Boyce, who has notched ten goals in nine games for the Ghosts, looks set to be sidelined for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.

The injury to Boyce, who is awaiting an MRI scan, is a huge blow to the Thurlow Nunn Division One promotion-chasers.

Despite the recent cold snap, The Ghosts have been kept on their toes by attending sessions at Heros Gym on Lynn’s Hardwick Industrial Estate.

Fakenham’s first-team squad were put through a gruelling session on Wednesday night, under the guidance of Richard Girdlestone, Ben Tansley, Mel Payne and Taz Taylor.

On the session, Fakenham Town boss Wayne Anderson said: “Ben (Tansley) is a good friend of mine, so it made sense to use the gym while there is still snow on the pitch.

“Ben kindly invited us down for an hour-session to help keep the players fit.

“It was good to see the players have their stamina tested by a hard session in the gym and the club would like to thank everyone at Heros for their help.”

Weather permitting, Fakenham Town are due to host Team Bury at Clipbush Park tomorrow.

Due to the amount of snow on the pitch, the game is already in doubt, as is Swaffham Town’s home clash against Saffron Walden.

Downham Town travel to Long Melford, where the host outfit are confident of getting the game on.

In Division One of the Peterborough League, King’s Lynn Town Reserves are due to entertain Stamford Belevedere at The Walks.

Fans are advised to check if games are on before travelling.
