The Fenmen notched their biggest win of the season in their only home game during January after a 15-minute first half blitz on Saturday.

Danny Beaumont opened the scoring in the third minute, and goals were soon added by Adam Millson (6), Tommy Treacher (7) and Scott Johnson (16) against second-from-bottom ChromaSport & Trophies UCL Premier Division side Harborough.

Treacher, who had earlier set up Beaumont and Millson, then again put Millson through for the fifth goal. Billy Smith and Treacher completed the tally.

Wisbech manager Dick Creasey said: “I hadn’t been too pleased with the last couple of performances and I said that at 2pm.

“You can’t pre-judge the opposition and to be four up after 15 minutes is the response you want. The players set the height of the bar, not me.”

Paul Cousins came on for Jon Fairweather, who had strained a stomach muscle, early on.

Creasey said: “Cousi had an operation (on his knee) prior to Christmas and he hasn’t had a lot of football, but he did really well. It was a big positive.”

Wisbech: Jordan, Johnson, Fairweather (Cousins), Wilson, Spafford, Smith, Reid, Millson (Bishop), Lunn, Treacher, Beaumont (Ford). Subs: Horne, Cobb.
