Wisbech Ladies 3rds 4 Woodhall Spa 1

With the chance of winning the league still a possibility, Wisbech Ladies 3rds were in a positive frame of mind on Saturday.

Following a very early goal by Holly Stevenson play slowed down; however a short corner won by Ellie Cobb resulted in an impressive goal from Shelley Coleman.

Debut youngster Yasmin Pritchard in goal made an impressive save, but a goal from the away team followed before half-time.

Wisbech kept the pressure on in the second half with goals by Kate Stevenson and Holly Stevenson.

Player of the match: Yasmin Pritchard.

Wisbech are away to Long Sutton Ladies 2nds, 2:30.

Alford 5

Wisbech Ladies 2nds 2

Wisbech travelled to Skegness for this Div 2NW encounter, confident that they had a decent tactical plan to overturn the reverse fixture of just over a month ago.

In an open game, Alford took the lead when they were awarded a dubious short corner and the Wisbech defence found themselves undone three more times, going into half-time 4-0 down.

Hannah Strickle, switching to right midfield for the second half, created a well-deserved change of fortunes for Wisbech.

Lou Sandall and Emma Baker scored, some great saves from Ruby Shepherd and defending from Georgia Bingham and Sam Pritchard.

PoM: Emma Baker.
