Wisbech Ladies 2,

Bury St Edmunds 2

In the first home game of the season Wisbech started strongly, taking a 1-0 lead at the end of the first half from a well-worked short corner, deflected in by Georgie Dunn.

Bury won a penalty flick, however the effort was put well wide. Shortly after, Bury did manage to level.

Wisbech stepped it up and a wave of attacking pressure saw Claire Apted score.

Bury were awarded their second flick with two minutes left for a foot on the line and this time they managed to convert.

Dereham 2, Wisbech Men 0

Wisbech went into the game looking to build on last week’s promising performance, but always looked susceptible to Dereham’s quick counter-attacking play.

The hosts scored their first from a quick move and another goal followed shortly after from another quick counter.

Wisbech enjoyed possession towards the end of the first half. The most notable chance fell to David Hodson after Ed Batt had found him at a penalty corner, but Dereham managed to snuffle it out.

In the second half Hodson, Scott Welcher and Daniel Martell were finding space around the Dereham circle, but unfortunately couldn’t apply that killer touch or pass. A late Brad Apted reverse stick thunderbolt was somehow kept out by a defender’s stick for a frustrated Wisbech.

They host high-flying Harleston Magpies next Saturday from 2.30pm at Harecroft Road.

Wisbech Town 3rds 2, Cambs Nomads 2nds 1

Wisbech dug deep to snatch the points off strong Cambridge opposition.

Cambridge opened the scoring early on when Wisbech failed to clear the ball.

After a quick chat at half time the 3rds soon got back on level terms with a well-taken goal by Jonathan Boyall. The defence held strong before Mark Littlechild converted the winner from close range.

March 2nds 7,

Wisbech 4ths 3

Wisbech travelled as a development team on Saturday and had five under 14’s playing.

They came up against a March side who were too strong for them and Jodie Betts scored four goals.

Wisbech’s Thomas Gregory scored his first goal for the club and Kieran Hallett scored his second in two games.

All the youngsters played well, particularly Jonny Garner and Oliver Osborn.

The other Wisbech goal in the defeat came from Edward Atkins.

Next weekend v Bourne Deeping 3rds (h), 4pm start.
