Fenmen’s tough Vase draw

WISBECH Town have been drawn away to Essex Senior League side Witham Town in the third round of the FA Vase on December 3.

William Hill have quoted Wisbech at 20-1 to win the competition.

The Essex side beat Ridgeons League Division One side Team Bury on Saturday after disposing of Woodbridge Town 4-1 in extra time in the previous round.

They are unbeaten in their last 15 games and are managed by former Peterborough United player Garry Kimble, who scored the winner against Liverpool in the League Cup in 1991.

Witham were relegated from the Ryman League at the end of the 2009-09 season and X Factor runner-up Olly Murs is a former player.

Wisbech boss Steve Appleby said: “We would have preferred a home game but playing away will take the pressure off us as they will be expecting to win at home.

“They have already beaten Woodbridge and now Team Bury so look decent, but you do not get any poor sides at this stage of the competition. I am planning to have them watched before we meet.”

Wisbech can add another £1,500 to club funds if successful after pocketing £1,200 on Saturday.
