Thetford Town earned themselves a valuable three points in a Norfolk derby clash at Clipbush Park.

Fakenham ended the game with only nine players, but it was a great start by Thetford which caused the problems.

The Brecklanders scored twice inside the first five minutes. Cameron King got them on their way with a superb 25-yard effort in only the second minute and Elliot Smith doubled their advantage.

Fakenham pulled one back midway through the first half thanks to a Joel Glover penalty but gave themselves a real uphill battle when Sam Garner was red-carded in the 66th minute.

Danny White’s men wrapped up the win in the 76th minute through Ross Bailey’s spot-kick and the Ghosts were reduced to nine men shortly after when Kyle Plumb received his marching orders.

The win took Thetford up to eighth in the table, with a home game against Stanway Rovers this weekend.
