Wisbech Town joined the United Counties League Premier Division weekend washout when their trip to Northampton Sileby Rangers on Saturday was postponed.

The game was called off following a 10.30am pitch inspection of the waterlogged Fernie Fields, which meant the squad did not have to travel.

Fenmen joint boss Paul Cousins said: “We all knew the game wouldn’t be on with all the weather we have had. I’m pretty sure all the games in the league were off.

“It’s expected at this time of year. There is no need to panic. We have a few games to catch up on but we’ve played more than almost anyone else.”

Only AFC Kempston Rovers, Long Buckby AFC and Newport Pagnell Town have played more than seventh place Wisbech’s 24 games.

After Saturday’s trip to Desborough Town the Fenmen face three cup ties, beginning with CRC on Tuesday in the Cambs Invitation Cup sponsored by Ridgeons.

Due to this tie taking place four days before a long north east trek to Ashington in the FA Vase, Cousins says squad rotation is inevitable.

Cousins said of the CRC home tie: “We will rotate it and also use it to look towards the Vase.”

On Saturday Steven Reid returns from a break with Cousins relieved that due to the weekend postponement he did not miss a game.
