HINDRINGHAM travelled to Sprowston on the back of manager Parsley's first win in charge. He named the same line up with the idea of stretching Sprowston on a narrow pitch.
The match was by no means a bruising battle, a good competitive game between two footballing sides. And for the officials to have booked nine and sent off four was surprising. Only one yellow and one red were received by Hindringham players.
Hindringham started well, not allowing Athletic time to settle and play their passing game. West, Coslett and Yotti got control of the midfield struggle and this gave Hindringham the upper hand all match. Scott Gray was sent clean through by Yotti and he rounded the keeper on the penalty spot and was brought down, the keeper only receiving a yellow card. Scott got up and converted the penalty.
In the second half, Hindringham continued to win the battle and created a number of openings which Gray and Dan were unable to convert.
The back three of Gibson, East and West all had great games, meaning that Osler in goal had very little to do.

Late in the game the ref sent East off for what looked like a nothing challenge and manager Parsley was booked for his five minutes on the pitch. Sprowston had two players sent off late on and one after the final whistle.
Hindringham's victory was due to the great team spirit which is in the camp at the moment. Manager Parsley stressed the level of performance must continue to the end of the season.
