Peckers 0 v 2 Fakenham

Woodbridge Town 0-2 Fakenham Town

By Rob Binns

Woodbridge Town suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of visitors Fakenham Town at Notcutts Park.

Goals from Jake Watts and Jay Myhill either side of the half time interval were enough to sink the Peckers to defeat.

After a quiet start, Woodbridge went close after 25 minutes when a delightful corner from Luke Mallett was headed goalwards by Mark Ray but the keeper reacted well to deny him.

Fakenham took the lead just before the half hour mark when Louis Henman-Mason drove into the box and cut the ball back for Watts who nodded it into the far corner.

The visitors had another opportunity shortly after when Fin Whiteley and Myhill combined down the right with the latter finding space to shoot but Alfie Stronge held his shot well.

A rejuvenated Peckers nearly equalised early in the second half when Taylor Southgate got on the end of a corner at the back post and headed back across for Ray who couldn’t quite get the right contact on the ball and saw his effort saved.

Fakenham went close just short of an hour when Watts crossed for Jude Frostick who volleyed goalwards but Stronge held his effort well.

The visitors doubled their lead 10 minutes later when a break down the left resulted in Henman-Mason getting on the end of a cross and forcing a great save but Myhill reacted fastest to the rebound to score.

Cameron almost instantly pulled one back for the Peckers with his first touch after coming on but his dinked effort went narrowly over.

Woodbridge will be hoping to break the recent streak of losses when Walsham Le Willows visit Notcutts Park on Tuesday night.
