Even having one of of the new management duo on the bench could not inspire Brantham to just their second victory in their 17 games of 2024.

Tom Austin took charge of this first game, while joint manager Jack Sibbons continues with his current club commitment, but is due to rejoin his former club by the end of the season.

The Imps played out a 0-0 draw at home to Fakenham Town to keep them 15th in what is effectively a 19-team Thurlow Nunn Premier League.

Finn Shorten secured the point with a final save late on after Justin Mcqueen, signed from Clacton, went closest to netting for Brantham.

One bright spot was the return of Shotley striker Reece Josselyn, who has not played since Pip Boyland and Alex Drennan who had given him his debut, left the club. Josselyn managed an hour but is likely to feature away at Long Melford on Wednesday and/or Ely City on Saturday.

The dreadful run of results, believed to be the worst in the club's 147-year-history, has been compounded with off field allegations of financial irregularities, with an official complaint lodged against them to the Suffolk FA.

The club's poor run coincides with an issue with payment to some players and the departure of management duo Pip Boyland and Alex Drennan.

Whose fault is poor run...?
