Great Yarmouth Town head to Fakenham Town tonight to play ‘the game that never was’.

The Bloaters’ Thurlow Nunn Premier Division trip to Clipbush Park in October ended in controversy when the hosts’ players refused to leave the dressing room – meaning a wasted journey for the men from The Wellesley.

Fakenham were fined for their one-night strike and made to replay the game – much to the annoyance of Yarmouth, who believe they should have been awarded the points – but the incident was followed by major changes on and off the field.

Great Yarmouth travel west in good spirits after a weekend 2-0 home win over FC Clacton which leaves them 16th in the table, while Fakenham were beaten by the same scoreline at Godmanchester Rovers and are third from bottom of the table.

In the Knockout Cup, Norwich United have a trip to March Town, Wisbech St Mary are away to Debenham LC and Cornard United host Braintree Town.
