Wisbech St Mary are the early pace-setters in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One since being promoted from the Cambs Kershaw League.

Saints made it three wins and one loss with a 6-0 home drubbing of Dereham Town Reserves last Wednesday.

This adds to victories over local rivals March Town United and Needham Market Res following an opening day defeat to AFC Sudbury.

Wisbech St Mary made it three wins in a row with a good performance against a young Dereham Reserves side.

Goals came from Nick Davey 2, Danny Emmington, player/manager Robbie Harris 2 and Ryan Lennon. Ex-King’s Lynn and Fakenham forward Harris is assisting manager Arran Duke along with club stalwart Ed Godfrey.

On Saturday, Saints drew 1-1 at Woodbridge Town to remain top of the table by a point from Braintree Town (see page 76), and on Friday have a mouthwatering derby at home to King’s Lynn Town Reserves (7.45pm).

March Town FC went down 3-2 to Haverhill Borough last Tuesday night.

The visitors scored in the first minute, but Kev Holt levelled two minutes later with a superb volley from 25 yards. However, Borough were 3-1 up at the break.

The Hares got one back with a penalty goal by Dan Woods after Rob Conyard was fouled, but could not pull any more goals back.

Two fantastic second half strikes from Ben Matthews ensured the hosts won 3-1 after being a goal behind at half-time. Craig Gillies netted the other goal for the Lilies.
