Mini match reports for season 2016-2017 season
Thurlow Nunn Premier Division- Saturday August  27th 2016
Brantham Athletic 1 Fakenham Rovers 2
Brantham started brightly against a hard working and tackling Fakenham Town team.
Brantham took an early lead when in just under three minutes they were 1-0 up.
Both Ollie Mann and Sean Lorimer were involved in the build up and the ball was played into the Fakenham area and Brantham skipper,Matt Travis, was in the  right place at the right time  to hit it home inside the area leaving the Fakenham keeper no real chance of stopping his blistering shot. 1-0.  Brantham still went forward with Simon Mann  latched onto a good through  ball and he hit the ball hard on the run only to see his effort go just wide. Ollie Mann was causing the Fakenham defence problems with his direct running and ability to shoot at goal from awkward angles but the Fakenham goalkeeper made some very good stops to deny Ollie from opening his account. The second half saw Fakenham push more men forward in search of an equaliser  and they did just that with George Abbott not only getting the equalising goal but he was on hand to add a second goal towards the latter part of the game to give Brantham's opponents the  league points.  The general discussion said that Brantham deserved a draw for the hard work they put in but alas it was not to be!!
