In Division One,Wisbech Town Reserves won 3-0 at Cardea. The Fenmen took the lead after just six minutes when Dan Hempson got his head on the end of a Pawel Kaluzny cross for his sixth goal of the campaign.

They increased their lead in the 25th minute when the lively Warren Jolly ran onto a great through ball from Warren Anderson and squeezed the ball home from a narrow angle.

Ten minutes into the second half and hot shot Ajay Jolly scored his third goal in three games and his seventh of the season as he latched on to a Warren Jolly through ball and took it around the keeper before firing the ball high into the back of the net.

As the game went on Cardea came more into it, but a solid back four, including Man of the Match Ben Pearce, stood solid.

Manager Jonny Pearce said: “I am really happy with that performance. The players are still getting used to playing together but there were some great signs of what is to come from this squad, who are working hard in training.

"Warren Jolly and Warren Anderson were brilliant in the middle of the park and drove us on today until they had nothing left, Sam Bedwell-Byatt and Pawel Kaluzny looked dangerous every time they came forward, both strikers scored and worked hard, the back four were solid and the subs played their part, especially Martin Chapman on his debut."

In the same division, Tydd beat fellow promotion challengers Ramsey Town 5-2, Matt Eaton scoring four of them, three inside seven second half minutes, to make it 14 for him this season. Timothy Magnus netted the fifth with a 35 yard screamer. Sam Lilley,making his second debut for the club, assisted three of the goals.
