Match abandoned but it was turning out to be a cracker


Another match abandoned, fixture backlog or what!

This match was turning out to be a cracker and just so disappointing that it was abandoned at half-time when any result was possible. Fakenham started as well as they have done all season, taking the lead after 10 minutes through Connor Charlesworth converting a superb cross into the area by Shane Akers. The lead was doubled after 19 minutes when a scintlating run down the left by Reece Taylor saw Kyle Plumb nod the pin-point cross into the goal. At this stage it was all Fakenham with Taylor in particular giving his full back a torrid time with his pace and ball control. Godmanchester slowly came back into the game and on 24 minutes Austin Diaper scored with a really good header that went to Rix's right and into the far corner. A super finish. Godmanchester made it 2-2 after 39 minutes when Akers conceded a penalty after he slipped in chasing a Godmanchester player and brought him down rugby style in the penalty area. Full back Joe Furness took the penalty, well penalties actually as he shot well wide first time round but the referee ordered it to be retaken (not quite sure why) and this time Furness converted. The game was very even at this stage with both teams looking like adding to their score but not able to convert a couple of good chances. Godmanchester's Jack Chandler was shown a Yellow Card for simulation in the Fakenham penalty area. Half-time 2-2 and with the fog pretty thick the referee decided to abandon the match. Fakenham were playing some really good football against the 3rd place team in the league and looking as though this was a game they could win. Now have to see when the replay is and whether or not the team can replicate the frorm shown in the next game over at Kirkley on Friday.
