Hindringham entertained North Walsham in the Mummery Cup first round with a depleted squad. Manager Oliver had to get his boots out and produced a performance which the younger players should look up to.

Hindringham set out in a 4-4-2 formation and on a very hot day, worked hard to close down their opponents, but more often than not gave the ball away or passed poorly when well placed.

Osler in goal produced two quality saves to keep out Walsham, who looked dangerous on the break.

Hindringham came more into the game with West and Gray combining well, and had North Wlasham's back four under pressure, causing them to make mistakes.

East drove two good shots at goal, which the keeper saved well. He also saved well from Yotti.

In the second half the heat took its toll and it looked likely that the first goal would decide the contest as all the players looked drained.

Hindringham had a good spell of pressure, which they were unable to convert into a goal. Chilvers and Coslett combined well down the left, but the crosses into the box went begging. North Walsham then scored two quick goals, both from poor defending, to win the tie.

Manager Oliver said afterwards: “We matched them for 60 mninutes, and for the side we had out, I was proud of the boys.

“We are short of a few bodies this year, but with the injuries we keep picking up, the boys are battling well for each other.”

Next match, Beccles home, 2.30 ko. Meet The Elms 1.30.
