Football forces Downham to switch
Downham have been forced to concede home advantage for tomorrow's Premier Division meeting with Sprowston as there is a fixture clash with Downham Town Football Club.
The football club are playing Whitton United in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division at the Memorial Field ground they share with the cricketers.
Downham held out for a losing draw against champions Norwich last weekend and their tough start to the season continues against a Sprowston side who were the only team to win in the division last weekend.
Simon Chipperfield's Sprowston have been heavily tipped to challenge the dominance of Norwich and Fakenham this year – a view backed up by Saturday's five-wicket win against Cromer.
Fakenham travel to Cromer tomorrow, with skipper Keegan Monahan-Fairlie still baffled by their opening day winning draw against Old Buckenham.
Bucks reached just 144 for four in reply to Fakenham's 280 for three and Monahan-Fairlie said: 'I found it a little bit odd, but maybe that was their plan – Terry (Perry, Old Buckenham skipper) did say they had four players missing.'
After Sanjaya Rodrigo guested as Fakenham's overseas player against Bucks – and made 91no – Fakenham are hoping their new signing, West Indian Test player Omar Phillips, will be available to face Cromer.
