Local Fenland sides' Emirates FA Cup runs ended on Saturday in the First Qualifying Round to higher-ranked opposition.
Wisbech Town lost 2-1 to Hitchin Town at the Elgood's Fenland Stadium while March Town – who had gone ahead – lost 3-1 at Grays Athletic.
Hitchin Town had an early effort ruled out for offside before a penalty for handball after 18 minutes separated the sides at the break. Jay Dowie’s spot kick was almost saved by Dan Farrell but the home 'keeper fumbled the ball over the line.
