Fakenham Town’s home game against Great Yarmouth Town on Tuesday night has been postponed.

The Ghosts were forced to call the game off because of a waterlogged pitch at Clipbush Park.

It is the second time the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division game has failed to go ahead as scheduled. Back in October Yarmouth arrived at the ground and warmed up, only to be informed that the home players were refusing to take play, amid internal issues at the club.
