Crisis Meeting at Downham

An emergency meeting will be held tonight as Downham Town look to recover from a nightmare weekend.

Thurlow Nunn League First Division Town were dumped out of the Norfolk Senior Cup by lower-level Reepham and then saw first-team boss Garth Good and assistant Peter Brassett resign after the game.

The pair will meet the club’s committee this evening to try and sort out the “internal matter” – just days before Downham travel to Fakenham Town for a league derby.

Brassett said: “We don’t want to leave. We want to keep making strides. The team is going in the right direction. There’s a real buzz about the club and results have been going well. But we can’t have these issues happening in the background. We need to move on – hopefully together.

“If the problems get solved we will be there on Saturday at Fakenham. If not, we won’t. It’s unfortunate this has happened on a week where we’d love to be organising the boys ahead of a derby game. It’s fair to say it’s D-day.”

Sam Hanslip and Matthew Castellan scored during Town’s disappointing 3-2 defeat at Anglian Combination Premier Division Reepham.
