Wide player Stuart Cobb has returned to Wisbech Town.

Fenmen joint boss Dick Creasey said: “Cobby will be a welcome addition to the squad.

“He has been with us before and played under me before. He went to play for St Ives and had a couple of good seasons there.

“He obviously knows the UCL and is suited to play in the UCL. He’s not cup-tied, so that’s good.”

Creasey also explained the signing as: “We have got to build for next year. He can play wide on either flank or up top. He has been playing wide at this stage of his career.

“Initially he started as a forward but adapted to become a wide player in the last four or five seasons.

“Our work rate in this league has not been good enough, but Stu is a workhorse. He wants to do well for his home town club.

“He’ll do well for us and he would have been in the squad on Saturday.”

Creasey revealed the club is after versatile players like Cobb.

“We want a defender but we want someone who can play in a versatile way – but it’s about what’s available at this time of year.

“We don’t want to bring a player in just for the sake of it, we are looking at next season now.”

The Fenmen face the top two sides in the league at home over the next fortnight, beginning with Deeping Rangers next Saturday.

Creasey said: “They will be very hard games and they will be a very good build up to the FA Vase tie. We always want to play against the better players.”

Saturday’s ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division at home to Harborough Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Creasey added: “The weather didn’t look at being great, but there is nothing we can do about that.

“It is better if a game is being cancelled at home rather than away because it means the rearranged game will be in midweek, so we don’t have to travel.”
