Blueharts 7,

Wisbech 1 Mens 1st

Wisbech travelled to Blueharts with a depleted side, due to three players being suspended, but with fight still in them.

From the off Blueharts pushed hard. Some great saves from second team goal keeper Wom Garner kept the score 3-0 at half time.

Wisbech started the second half and worked tirelessly for the full 35 minutes. Blueharts struggled to penetrate the Wisbech defence fully in open play and only managed to score via penalty corners.

Many chances were created from new forward/first team goal keeper Tom Peggs and recent ‘newbie’ Danny Haynes, but the Blueharts’ keeper kept Wisbech off the scoreboard.

Wisbech’s consolation goal came from a saved Haynes shot, which Sam Blunt cooly finished.

Captain, Jonathan Shippey, would like to thank every one of the 12 players for all their efforts and fight throughout a tough 70 minutes and season.

This match shows that Wisbech now have a quality core of players who care about their club and are willing to work hard for each other.

Wisbech Ladies 0,

Dereham 3

Wisbech just managed to avoid the weather to get their clash with top of the table Dereham underway.

Dereham started the match with high intensity which put Wisbech on the back foot from the off. Unable to absorb the pressure, Wisbech conceded inside the first 10 minutes. Within minutes Wisbech found themselves 2-0 behind.

Wisbech kept fighting on in the second half with some outstanding defending from centre backs, Laura Overland and Emma Barnard. Unfortunately, Wisbech were caught on the counter attack late on.

The team showed some excellent fight and spirit and hopefully they can take this forward to next weekend to grab all three points when they play Watton away.
