Fakenham Chief Targets Top Three

Fakenham Town boss Wayne Anderson says he fears none of his rivals next season – and is aiming for a top-three finish in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One.

Anderson's Ghosts had their first workout of the summer at the weekend when they lost 2-1 at home to King's Lynn Town, and Anderson has purposely chosen a tough schedule to prepare for the new campaign.

Division One will welcome the reserve teams of Dereham Town, AFC Sudbury and Needham Market next season, but Anderson (pictured) believes his Ghosts side can make an impact.

"To be fair I don't fear anyone now, I seriously don't," he said. "I thought we gave a good account of ourselves against Lynn. Yes, Lynn had a lot of possession of the ball and they have some quality players and will always have a lot of possession, but when you work hard off the ball it is difficult to break people down.

"That is what I have been working on. We have good shape and a strong back four and if I do need to bring five in midfield I will do that. The longer the game goes on other teams get frustrated – you can go and nick a goal and that is what happened with us last season. We had good shape, we didn't concede a lot of goals last season, but we nicked the odd one or two.

"Now we have Robbie Harris in as well there is a great chance for us to go and finish in the top three."
