Marcus Oliver back as Hindringham boss
FOOTBALL: Hindringham have appointed Marcus Oliver (pictured) as their new manager, with Ronnie Heyhoe assisting him.
The pair face a battle as the club continues to wait for the clubhouse to be finished, meaning that all home games are being played at Holt.
Oliver returns after being away for the past four seasons, hoping to turn his home village club around, as he did in his first spell at the helm.
In his first game in charge, Hindringham started well, but could not convert their chances and allowed Bradenham three easy second-half goals.
Then followed the local derby against Wells, in which Hindringham played some good football.

Hindringham then faced Bungay and produced a good, battling display against a young, spirited side.
Hindringham just could not put the ball in the back of the net, finding the Bungay keeper in good form, stopping shots from Belton, Betts and West, with Whitterd going close with a header.
At the other end Richard Bond's safe handling meant the game finished 0-0.
