Wisbech started the game on a high from last week's victory, playing some good passing hockey.

In the second half, the men let Norwich in to score through a defensive error. The weather worsened but the Wisbech resolve grew stronger and Tom Jupp scored the second with an accurate short corner strike. Again the men let Norwich equalise after giving away a short, scoring via a top corner drag flick.

Bill ‘Wom’ Garner kept the scores level with some fine reaction saves.

The aerial pressure to the Wisbech forwards, created attack after attack with Gary Freear picking all the balls over the top to set chances up. Some resolute hard work from all, finally got another short in which Dan Martell coolly pushed the ball home to seal the win. A top team effort from all today.

Wisbech Ladies 2nd 0 Bury St Edmunds 6

It got off to a great start and Wisbech were attacking and defending well with some nice teamwork between the players. 20minutes into the first half the first and only goal of the half was scored by Bury.

After a quick talk at half time the ladies started off well, both attacking and defending. However, Bury were more physical in the second half, coming out stronger which caused Wisbech to back off a bit but they still remained strong. The ladies seemed to play better in the second half although this was not reflected in the score or how well they played as a team.

Ellie Cobb, took Player of Match as she made some brave tackles and played confidently even after being hit in the head by a Bury stick.

PoM: Ellie Cobb.

Wisbech Ladies 3rds 3 Sudbury 3’s 1

Wisbech secured their first league win.

After their heavy defeat the previous week Wisbech came out with a completely different approach and attitude to the game on Saturday. They piled on the pressure straight away and within minutes Andrea Eggleton hassled the keeper and put the first goal away.

The half continued in the same vein and with some really great teamwork and movement of the ball they repeatedly attacked Sudbury’s D. Oliwia Bolka and Steph Garner linked up superbly on the forward line and some explosive runs from Oliwia left Sudbury standing at times.

The ladies went into half time 2-0 with several sticks going for the goal it was Tina Forder who finally put it away.

Second half, momentarily the ladies got complacent and superb strike from Sudbury took it to 2-1. The ladies soon woke up and Wisbech defence had their best performance as a unit this week which was excellently controlled by vice captain Lisa Lowe. There was some top work across the team but Racheal Bateman's work rate was admirable.

The ladies continued to dominate and all the simple hockey and tactics they put into practice, led to a third goal from Tina Forder and secured them their first victory and the points.

It was an excellent team effort and it was a tightly contested fight for Player of Match, but for her defensive play and clearing the ball the vote went to Nancy Davies.

PoM: Nancy Davies.
