Double success for Outwell Swifts and Wisbech St Mary A





Two Fenland sides are celebrating after achieving fantastic league and cup double success to end the 2023/24 season.

Outwell Swifts sealed their third title in successive seasons as they beat Manea United 6-1 to win Cambs County League 2B, adding to their North Cambs Junior Cup triumph in April

And Wisbech St Mary A, who clinched the 4B title with a 3-0 home win over Mepal and Sutton Reserves on April 30, received the championship shield after a 2-2 home draw with Willingham Wolves. They had already won the Cambridgeshire Lower Junior Cup.

Adan-Jay Lewis notched a ha-trick for Swifts in their win over Manea, to make it 24 for the season, with Ross Beart, Ben Garner and Richard Mills also on target.

Mark Secker, who is joint manager alongside Lewie Rawson, said: “We are really happy with the promotion this season. The league was very strong with some very good teams in, especially Huntingdon who dropped down from the Cambs Prem.

“The league and cup double is deserved as our consistency has been class. Our never-say-die attitude has earned us points in games we didn’t play that well in.

“The squad has been superb all season and committed also. We’ve gained some very good players and also lost a couple which luckily didn’t affect us at all.

“Next season our aim is to bring in four or five players to strengthen the squad as we look to compete for the title again. As a club, we’re slowly getting back to where we want to be and have massive aspirations going forward. Off the field, we are in a very good place and have some really good people involved with us.”

This season was the first in adult management for Wisbech St Mary A boss Brandon Ramdharry, 22, after injury curtailed his playing career at such a young age.

He said: “The season overall was consistent. A few players had to be rested due to injuries here and there but we remained a strong side.

“It’s been a learning curve for me. At times it was challenging but our end result has been rewarding. Every manager wants commitment from their team and they’ve given me that every week. We’ve not only won games but we’ve won them the way I wanted to, by playing attacking football.

“Winning the league and the cup was a proud achievement - not just for me but the team as a whole. I joined Wisbech St Mary at the age of four, we won trophies and leagues throughout youth football, and to do it as well in adult football is the icing on the cake.

“My plans for next season will be to go from strength to strength, hopefully repeating the same success as this year. Staying in adult management is my intention, fulfilling a long-term goal, to go as high as I possibly can. It’s been the best thing for me since my massive injury, to keep me within the game.”
