THE Greens gained revenge for their defeat by the Ghosts a few weeks ago in the FA Cup with this convincing Ridgeons Division One victory at Emerald Park on Tuesday, ahead of tomorrow's trip to Holbeach in the FA Vase.
It was a very sporting game both sides
played well with plenty of commitment, writes Mick Heard.
Gorleston were attacking constantly and on 18 minutes took the lead when Ricci Butler finished off a good move by hitting the ball home from close range.
Despite plenty of action, and Daniel Stockdale the young Fakenham goalkeeper being kept very busy, Gorleston did not score their second goal until 35 minutes when Luke Goreham struck. Then it was 3-0 when Eddie Thompson finished off a good move two minutes before the interval.

Goreham scored his second goal just into the second half after another flowing move. That was the end of the scoring despite plenty of effort from both teams.
Gorleston brought on several substitutes during the second half. Jamie Long came on for Goreham, Harley Clements for right-back Adam Thirtle and Richie Fruin came on in midfield. Richie is a very experience player and soon influenced the game with good passing and setting up many attacks.
The Gorleston team were missing Regan Harman on holiday, and Kyle Howell and Peter Lambert who were both injured.
Gorleston U18 Youth beat Norwich United Youth 4-0 at Emerald Park. The scorers were Ryan Gowing with two penalties, Chris Southern and Luke Taylor.
