Fakenham Town 3, Diss Town 2

New caretaker manager, new players - new Fakenham.

After 12 games without a point in the Ridgeons first division, the Ghosts hope they have started to turn their season around with a 3-2 home win over high-fliers Diss.

Former manager Neil Jarvis has returned to take over the team until the end of the season and brought in five former King's Lynn Reserves players, four of whom played, with two scoring.
