Hindringham travel badly
LACK of home comforts is not helping Hindringham as, on the road again, they lost 4-0 at Corton in the Mummery Cup.
With Heyhoe and Hood away, the club turned to former manager and player Marcus Oliver to help lift the players.
Hindringham looked up for the battle, with players fighting for every ball. Pask and Betts linked up well up top, Hindringham were on top.
Then a ball came into the box, keeper Broughton tipped the ball over the bar for a corner, but the referee awarded a penalty saying that Whittred had gone through the back of the player when the ball was going over for the corner. He sent Whittred off for the challenge, and Corton converted the penalty.
Hindringham continued to battle for each other and had good spells of possession, in which they failed to score.
Corton scored with the last kick of the first half.
Hindringham changed to an attacking formation in the second half and had the better share of the game with Shaun Belton driving them on in midfield.

Hindringham had enough chances to get back into the game, West going close, Pask flashing a couple of headers just wide.
Coslett looked dangerous down the right, turning the full back inside out, but still Hindringham could not score.
Corton scored two in the last five minutes to kill off the match.
Hindringham must take heart out of the performance and build on this for the rest of the season when things must surely go their way.
They are on their travels again this weekend, Sprowston Athletic away 2.30 kick off, meet Bistro 12.30pm.
