In-form Wisbech Town FC are chasing a forward after putting in a seven-day approach for the player.

If all goes well he could make his debut in next Saturday’s ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier home game with Thurnby Nirvana.

Fenmen manager Dick Creasey said: “We may have a new face around come the weekend.

“We have put seven days in for the player but it won’t be until Thursday that we can talk to him.”

Thurnby were the last team to beat Wisbech by a big margin, triumphing 4-1 on August 23, and are a point behind the seventh-spot Fenmen.

Creasey said: “We have had 14 games now and the only one that we’ve been turned over in, it’s at Thurnby.

“We got what we deserved on the day. We need to put that right this week.

“I reminded the lads of that and they took it on board. The games are on our pitches at the minute, and at the moment that suits us.

“It’s a decent, flat surface and that allows us to keep the ball moving.

“The thing is – can we do it when we go away and the pitches aren’t as good in the winter?”

The Thurnby game will be Wisbech’s sixth home league game in a row, a fact Creasey is not happy about.

He said: “It’s another home game and I’m not sure how the UCL does the fixtures. It’s not good as we will have a spate of games away.

“Even at our level the supporters can’t afford it week-in, week-out.

“It will cause problems financially for the club and it doesn’t seem right to me.”

Creasey will check on the availability and fitness of Matt Lunn, whose train from London was cancelled, and Paul Cousins, who was at a family wedding for last weekend’s 3-1 win over Wellingborough.

That was Wisbech’s sixth win in a row in all competitions and Creasey said: “To get six wins on the trot is quite good at any level.

“When you get on a winning run things go your way.”
