Hindringham lack confidence
Corton 1, Hindringham 0
Hindringham travelled without Belton, Betts, Oliver and Walpole, all injured. So into the squad came Hood, Scholes and Raisbury.
Manger Oliver kept faith with the same system which earned a point against Bungay the week before, Goss partnering West up front, Hood coming into midfield.
The game started slowly, with Corton getting a lot of the ball but not really hurting Hindringham’s defence. Hindringham played on the break, but at times their passing disappointed as attacks often broke down. Hood shot wide, West and Goss went close. Corton did not threaten Bond in goal all half.
The second half started in the same vein, with Hindringham unable to create any real opportunities for the front two. Scholes and Raisbury came on to try and change the game.
With the match heading for a draw, Corton scored from a weak free-kick. Hindringham tried their hardest to force an equaliser.
Manager Oliver said afterwards: “Confidence is very low at the moment, we seem to have stopped the goals going in, but don’t look like scoring. But things will change.

“On paper, we have a squad capable of competing in this league, from what I have seen. Hopefully we will be able to get a few new faces in, to give the lads a hand.”
