2nd XI promotion confirmed


Fakenham’s 7 wicket victory at Sudbury in Saturday’s East Anglian Premier Cricket League play off secures the second teams promotion to the Premier Division of the Norfolk Alliance.

Peter Thomas’ side had finished second in Division One, but with the possibility of Fakenham being relegated back to the Norfolk Alliance their promotion depended on the result of the play-off, Fakenham’s win confirms that Swardeston 2nds will join Lowestoft in the Premier Division for the 2008 season.

This means that they have regained top flight status at the first attempt just 12 months after the disappointment of relegation and rounds off an excellent season for the club which saw the first eleven win the East Anglian League for the first time.
