Wisbech Ladies 5,

Pelicans 2

After winning the East Region Division 1 Indoor tournament the previous weekend, Wisbech were in high spirits going into this local derby.

The ball flowed effortlessly around the pitch, with everyone putting in 100 per cent. Wisbech attacked in wave after wave.

At half-time Wisbech had scored four goals and let in one in their own net after a slip up in defence.

The home side added two more goals in the second half, one in each goal. Goals came from Lisa Williamson (2), Hannah Strickle (2) and Leanne Williamson. Player of the match was Georgie Dunn.

Wisbech travel away to St Ives next weekend.

Wisbech Ladies II 8,

Boston Ladies 1

Laura Overland scored an impressive five goals as Wisbech got the new year off to a flying start.

There was a goal each from Marley Lawson, Joanne Gomm and Fran Plitch. PoM: Heidi Halls.

This win strengthens Wisbech’s lead at the top of the table adding to their already superior goal difference of +88.

Wisbech Men 0,

Harleston Magpies 2

Wisbech began the second half of the season needing to pick up some vital points to avoid relegation.

Magpies, a former national league outfit and the league leaders, had the majority of early possession, but Wisbech defended stoutly. A bodged penalty corner routine saw Magpies take the lead.

A couple of really good chances fell by the wayside and the half-time score was 1-0, Tom Peggs producing some fantastic saves.

In the second half Gav Johnstone threw a massive aerial pass for Brad Apted to run on to and lob the keeper on the half volley only to see a desperate defender claw the ball away. Wisbech kept pressing but Magpies countered to double their lead. Sam Blunt had a late powerful drag flick well saved.

Wisbech will take plenty of confidence going into next weekend’s game against Dereham, a side they’ve already beaten this season.

Bourne Deeping 2nd 3, Wisbech 3rd 1

Wisbech needed points to get out of the relegation zone and started with determination.

They were soon down by deflected goals on the bouncy pitch. Eliott Peck scored, however another deflected goal took the score to 3–1 at half-time.

Danny Haynes was particularly effective in midfield and Mike Lawrence made some good runs to create chances. Next weekend v St Ives 2nd XI (h), 4pm start.
