Wisbech win in Cup, Parson Drove fight back for a draw but Wisbech St Mary beaten

More news, no ads


Wisbech Town progressed to the next round of the FA Cup this afternoon, while Parson Drove earned a league point and Wisbech St Mary went down to defeat in the same division.

The Fenmen entertained Whitton United in the Preliminary Round of the Cup and a goal in either half saw them win comfortably.

Toby Allen netted with a fantastic first half volley and Danny Draper with a majestic lob early in the second half. Wisbech will find out their First Qualifying Round opponents on Monday.

In the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League Division One North, Parson Drove drew 2-2 at home to Debenham LC. Drove took the lead in the third minute through Ryan Lennon but were pulled back on the hour, before the visitors took a 62nd minute lead. Drove equalised through Lennon's second with nine minutes left.

They are now 13th in the 16 team division with a win, a draw and three defeats from their five games.

Wisbech St Mary are rock bottom with five defeats out of five after a 4-1 defeat at league leaders Harleston Town. The home side opened the scoring in the 18th minute, made it 2-0 from a 34th minute penalty, and were 3-0 up by the break. It was four in the 70th minute, before Charlie Rudland pulled a goal back.

There was no game for March Town after a strange 48 hours. Originally due to entertain Long Melford in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League Premier Division, that game was called off when March were reinstated into the FA Cup after extra preliminary round victors Bugbrooke St Michaels were thrown out for fielding an ineligible player.

However, after the Badgers appealed, the Hares' Preliminary Round trip to Arlesey Town was postponed. They will travel to Arlesey on Tuesday evening, unless Bugbrooke's appeal is successful.
