Hindringham had the dream first 30 minutes, their attacking play destroyed a physical Brandon and they could not get close to Hindringham's quick football.

More was to follow as Gray scored his second after a good pull back from Clipston.
Then for some reason all Hindringham's team wanted to all play up front and score the goals.
They hit the self destruct button and seemed to lose the ability to pass and compete for each other, and large gaps started to appear.
Brandon scored two quick goals in injury time of the first half.
Hindringham lost Mattless and Oliver and had to reshape, but you could only see one winner in the second half.
Brandon scored six goals at will, and you could not see Hindringham getting back into the game.
This weekend Hindringham host Norwich AFC. Meet 1.30pm at The Elms.
The club would like to say their thanks to Marcus Oliver for all he has done for the club, as a manager and player.
Hindringham hope that Marcus stays connected to the club for many years to come.
