Fakenham Town bowed out of Thurlow Nunn League Cup at Clipbush Park on Tuesday night after losing a penalty shoot-out to visitors King's Lynn Reserves.

The tie finished 2-2 after 90 minutes and went straight to spot-kicks, with the Linnets prevailing 4-2.

Kyke Plumb scored twice in the opening half hour to put Fakenham in apparent command before Toby Hilliard pulled one back before the break and then scored his second after it to complete the scoring.

Bradenham Wanderers moved up to third in the Anglian Combination Premier Division with a thumping 6-1 win over basement side Reepham. Joel Brien led the way with a hat-trick while the other home goals came from Rob Thurley, Jason Hunt and Liam Stockell, with Emanuel Thurston scoring for Reepham.

Bradenham travel to Acle United on Saturday.
