Fakenham Town U18
The U18's play their football in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League, North Division. It comprises 10 teams, all local and ranging from Swaffham Town Youth to North Walsham Youth and points inbetween. There is no promotion or relegation involved so the players, apart from their natural competitiveness, can concentrate on learning what will be required once they start playing adult football. They enter the FA Youth Cup each season and potentially the Thurlow Nunn Youth League Cup, an optional cup competition for all league Youth Teams. The team is managed by Kristian Jones, ably assisted by Ed Savage. Kristian has achieved his Level 2 coaching badge and is studying to gain his EUFA(B) badge whilst Ed is currently a Level 1 coach but studying for his Level 2. He is also an FA Licenced Coach. The team currently have a lot of players in their first year of U18 football but have shown a good level of improvement which will stand them in good stead next season.
Their best 'historic' performance was in winning the Thurlow Nunn Youth League Cup in Season 2000/01 where they beat Deeping Rangers in the final.
