THIS week Fakenham, buoyed by a crucial 17-0 win over Woodbridge, get a break from league action when they visit Thetford.

Fakenham took the game to Woodbridge and midway through the first period the pressure finally told when Ian Williamson scored one of the best team tries of the season.
The killer blow came midway through the half when winger Mark Allen pounced on a clever Warden chip kick to nip in behind the Woodbridge defence and score under the posts.
Tremendous scenes greeted the final whistle.
With games against Stowmarket and Ely remaining, Fakenham can finally see a glint of light at the end of the tunnel.
