'Scole rise to 4th place after convincing win in North Norfolk'
By Alan Boulter
Hindringham FC 1 v 3 Scole United FC
Scole made the long trip away at Hindringham in good spirits following last week's good win over Mundford. The only chamges in personnel was the return of Taylor Pooley
at centre half in for the unavailable Chris Collins-Reed and Elliot Wesby taking Luke Hunt's place on the bench.
The worry was always that Scole wouldn't be as driven against Hindringham as they were last week and unfortunately that came to bear! Scole were sluggish at the start and allowed Hindringham to get a foothold in the game with chances being created at both ends of the pitch. Scole came close when following a corner both Taylor Pooley
and James Harrison
had goalbound efforts blocked on the line but Hindringham broke from those chances and following a defensive mix up took the lead much to the Scole management team's displeasure! 10 minutes later it was youngster Kieran Manning
who came to Scole's rescue. It was his tireless chasing down that forced the home centre back to lose the ball on the right of the 18 yard box . Manning took the ball on and played a cross onto the on rushing James Harrison
who bundled the ball in for the equaliser. Fellow winger Connor Kerry
came into the game next with a good chance well saved by the talented Hindringham keeper. He was fouled on the edge of the box shortly after and up stepped centre back Pooley whose tenacious shot took a deflection off Kerry on the way to the back of the net to give Scole the lead. Manning was causing havoc by now and it was another mazy run which set up Scole's third this time setting up Connor Kerry
who finished well.
Although the Yellow's appeared to have the game sewn up, they couldn't get a fourth to really kill their opponents off. Ashley Baxter
came close following a run where he appeared to beat most of the Hindringham side and skipper Ben Norton
Hugman really should have done better with a very good chance. But it wasn't until Hindringham went down to 10 men following a knee injury to their keeper having already made their substitutions that the game looked over. Sub Harry Rolingson had a good effort superbly saved by the stand in goalie near the end but the score stayed the same.
A good 3 points if not a brilliant performance but its sets Scole up well for their big County Cup match next week away at Thurlow Nunn Premier side Thetford Town.
