Scole 0, Hindringham 1
Hindringham produced their best football of the season, a number of the Scole players saying they were the best team they had played this season.
Manager Phil West handed Luke Goss his first start, Hood was restored to midfield, with Tuck slotting in at the back in place of Saunders, who was ill. They had Martin Hutchison and Darryl Parsley on the bench.
Manager West was delighted with the whole side. “We gelled today right from the first whistle, we battled and keep the ball well and we have now set the platform for the rest of the season. We have a good squad, which had a great team bonding night last weekend, which hopefully will put us in good stead for the rest of the season.”

Hindringham started brightly, getting the ball down and creating a number of great chances. Three times in the first 10 minutes they carved Scole's defence wide open, Gray failing to convert his one-on-ones and Clipston having one cleared off the line.
The back four of Chilvers, Defew, Tuck and Franks where dealing with Scole's long balls and when Cracknall was sweeping up to good effect. Coslett and Hood controlled the midfield and got the ball wide and soon as they could.

Second half a great team move enabled Goss to pull Scole's defence all over the place and play in strike partner Gray to finally beat the keeper for his 13th goal of the season.
Parsley replaced Goss, who worked himself into the ground. Hindringham pinned Scole back and Clipston crossed for Walker to send a header against the post.
