Wisbech’s Hanlon gains revenge

Lowestoft Ladies 1,
Wisbech Ladies 2

Wisbech gained revenge from the defeats by Lowestoft last season in the Premier League.

Despite end to end action stalemate looked likely until Wisbech broke away down the right wing and Georgie Dunn cooly slotted home a precise ball fired in to the D.

In the second half Lowestoft capitalised on a well worked short corner.

Wisbech did not let the rain wash away their three points and with only minutes to go at a short corner a goalmouth scramble was converted by Steph Hanlon.

With only two games left the team battle for a top four finish. Next weekend is the big derby against Long Sutton at Harecroft Road. 1pm push back.

Wisbech Men 1,

Wisbech, still hoping to secure promotion to East Premier A, enjoyed probably 80% of the possession but were lacking in the final third.

It took a well worked penalty corner to break the deadlock 60 minutes in when Sam Markillie slid in at the far post.

Saturday sees a massive fixture away to top of the table Cambridge University. If you can make the trip to the Wilberforce Road stadium, show your support from 1.30pm.
