This came after the Greens had taken an early lead and had pulled back to 2-2 before the Ghosts eastablished a 4-2 half-time lead.

“It was a cracking result,” said joint Fakenham manager Stuart Woodhouse yesterday. Fellow boss Mark King missed the action having to work in the harvest fields.

A Gary Gilmore strike five minutes after half-time saw Wroxham into the next round 1-0 against Kirkley & Pakefield at Trafford Park.
