Cromer Town Football Club have announce that Darren Terrington and Karl Horton will be taking on the role of joint managers at the club.

Both will still continue in a playing capacity whilst the pair will also be supported by Richard Cox, who will be assistant manager.

Club captain Matthew Eves will also be a coach and have a more active role in training and match day warm ups.

This arrangement is on an interim basis and will last a maximum of until the end of the current season.

The club will continue to actively search for a longer term successor to help try and take the Crabs forward.

However, in the meantime the new management team will be looking to take the club back to where it’s used to being.

Their first game in charge will be this Saturday at home to Wroxham Reserves in the Mummery Cup second round (kick-off 2pm)

Following back to back cup games Cromer returned to league action with a trip to Wymondham Town.

In some difficult playing conditions the away side made a superb start and were playing some fantastic football. They were passing the ball around nicely and attacking with great purpose and they took the lead in the 16th minute when Matthew Eves played the ball to Josh Halliday who then put the ball across goal and Michael Warnes finished from close range.

Just after the half hour mark Cromer doubled their lead when Halliday picked out Ben Graver from a corner and the centre half headed home to give his side a well deserved two goal lead.

Almost immediately, having spent most of the game on the back foot, Wymondham pulled a goal back. The Crabs lost possession centrally allowing Shaun Blyth to pick up possession. The striker then made a powerful run forward brushing by defenders before firing in at the near post.

Three minutes after the restart the home side equalised. Cromer gave away a needless corner and from this the ball dropped nicely to Blyth who scored his and his side’s second of the game from close range. In the 77th minute Cromer came close to regaining the lead when Halliday picked out Terrington but Attfield once again pulled off a superb save.
