Fenmen pick up first win in six

Harborough Town 0,

Wisbech Town 3

The Fenmen picked up their first win in six games on Saturday despite losing goalkeeper Tom Roberts for most of the match with a dislocated shoulder.

Second half strikes from Ollie Gale (65 minutes) and Tom James (67 minutes and in injury time) secured the United Counties League Premier Division points. Both sides hit the bar while dual registration signing from King’s Lynn Charlie Butt made his debut.

Steven Reid deputised between the posts for Roberts, who sustained his injury on about 25 minutes.

Acting manager Dick Creasey said: “It was a really poor game but we needed a result and we got that.

“We’ve got to build on that. It wasn’t a good performance but the points are more important to get the train back onto the rails.

“The first half was awful – for anyone paying they’d want to ask for their money back – but we did do better in the second half. To be fair to Reidy, he’s not had too much to save: no disrespect to Harborough, they were a poor side.

“We brought Ollie Gale on and reverted to 4-4-2 from 4-4-1-1 which probably made our shape a bit better.”

Wisbech: Roberts, Spafford, Johnson, Fairweather, Cartwright, White, James, Reid, Millson, Butt, Clarke. Subs: Gale, Friend, Green. Not used: Cousins.
