More news, no ads


If Wisbech Town's walking football team win their final six games they will win the Peterborough League.

After a win and a draw at the weekend, Wisbech sit fourth with two games in hand over leaders Boston United and are four points behind second placed Harbrorough Town - both have played 10 games and they still meet twice.

Fresh from their win in the Sutton on Sea tournament, Wisbech travelled for the latest round of games, with clashes against Stamford Strollers and Boston.

Wisbech were boosted by the inclusion of new signing David Frosdick, who plays for Norwich City walking football team.

Against Stamford, Wisbech opened the scoring through Steve Wyness but were 2-1 down before fighting back to win 5-2. Frosdick equalised before the break and Wyness scored three more after the break.

Next up was a 2-2 draw against top of the table Boston United. Chris Bradford put United 1-0 up and Franco flashed his shot past Fenmen keeper John Knight to make it 2-0, before Scott Sawers reduced the deficit just before half time. Sawers scored again late in the second half to seal a point.

Wisbech manager Jonny Pearce said: "The lads continued their performance from Sutton on Sea and I was really pleased that Steve Wyness managed to get back on the score sheet as his goals had dried up recently.

"I think it’s fair to say we dominated both games and played some really attractive football. I couldn’t ask any more from the players and it was only a fabulous keeper that stopped us from getting maximum points from today. We are still in the mix for the league and with two weeks to go it’s all to play for.”
