Famous Wisbech Town games against Cambridge, Colchester, Brentford and Bristol Rovers
1924: Wisbech Town pulled off a shock by defeating Southern Amateur League outfit Cambridge Town 2-1 away in the first qualifying round on October 4.
The win was deserved, for the defence especially played a remarkably good game against a much superior team.
Wisbech’s first goal came when Arthur Barker got away on the right wing. The ball was sent ahead and the goalkeeper ran out to save. He fumbled and Cyril Wright passed to Barker, who scored.
