Fakenham Town 0 Long Melford 1
Thurlow Nunn League Cup Final Att; 250 ish
Admission £6 Programme £1 for 32 pages, well produced by Barnes Print , Mr Barnes being the Fakenham Chairman
Played at Diss Town FC

This was really quite dismal fare on offer, settled in the first half by a good header following a right wing cross that the Fakenham keeper just could not keep out. That was really the only bit of quality on offer, with the ball being hoofed and passes being misplaced regularly. The discipline and attitude of both teams left a lot to be desired and it was no surprise when Fakenham were reduced to 10 with half an hour to play when one of their number received a second yellow for a high foot catching an opponent.
I expected more, Fakenham finished 6th in Step 6 and Long Melford only just avoided the drop from step 5, but there was a noticeable difference in the teams abilities. Long Melford always looked more likely to add to their tally rather than concede, I donít recall their keeper having a save to make.
Brewers Green Lane is a fine venue for this level. An excellent sturdy raised stand on one side with about 250 seats is complimented by a decent covered terrace behind one goal that stretches the entire width. Curiously the officials change under the stand and the teams in the corner of the ground, meaning the men in black need to walk across the area where spectators congregate to take to the field. Surely a ground grading breach ? Otherwise a cracking venue.
Just a shame about the match...
