Wisbech Men’s 2nd 9

Wisbech’s mission was simple: win the game to win the league, which they did with the top four scorers all on target.

Wisbech’s nerves were settled with an opening goal from Matt Goodwin. Goodwin added his second along with goals for Hugo Atkins and Sam Dunn before half-time.

In the second half came a hat-trick for Goodwin after another fine run, a second for Atkins from a reverse stick shot and a second for Dunn after a powerful short corner strike. Atkins then completed his third hat-trick of the season before Wisbech conceded two quick goals.

Jason Esser found the net to cap off his highest scoring season with the second team. Atkins finished with 36 for the season. Wisbech scored over 100 goals and will compete in Division 2N of the East Men’s League next season – the highest the side has ever been, making Ryan Parker the side’s most successful captain.
