Skegness 1,

Wisbech Ladies II 3

Player of the Match Fran Plitsch scored the 100th league goal as Wisbech 
secured a win in very windy conditions.

This win guarantees promotion for Wisbech who are unbeaten with just three games left to play.

Plitsch opened the scoring with a well-placed goal and scored a second minutes later.

Steph Hanlon scored Wisbech’s third with a lovely solo effort – winning the ball in midfield and passing three Skegness players before shooting into the home net.

Wisbech are at home to Horncastle on Saturday, 2.30pm.

Wisbech Men 3,

Norwich City 2

Wisbech took a huge step towards Premier A survival with a hard fought, gritty victory against fellow strugglers Norwich at Harecroft Road.

The hosts created early chances, but were unable to convert.

Norwich took the lead against the run of play. More chances fell to Wisbech, but again they struggled to convert.

A highly charged team talk seem to jolt the boys back into their rhythm and they equalised through Daniel Martell shortly after the re-start.

Martell put Wisbech into the lead after a swift attacking move.

Norwich pulled level but as 10 minutes remained Brad Apted, who received a slip left from Sam Blunt at a penalty corner, rifled home past the keeper.

Next weekend they travel to play Bedford, looking to build on their third win of the season.

City of Peterborough 4th 8, Wisbech 3rd 0

Wisbech went to promotion chasing Peterborough with a much changed team again and it was always going to be a case of damage limitation.

When the ball was being passed around Wisbech looked a different side and they need to do this for the rest of the season to stay in this league.

Next weekend v Cambridge City 4th XI (h), 4pm start.

Wisbech 4ths 4,

St Ives 4ths 1

A fantastic first ten minutes saw Wisbech dominate and go three goals up: two from Jon ‘Eggy’ Boyall and one from Pete Shippey.

Good defending from skipper Kevin Shippey and solid performances from MoM Nick Overland and Toby George kept the game under control.

St Ives were rewarded with a scrappy goal, but ex-Wisbech cricket captain James Williams sealed the game with a goal late on. Wisbech now sit fifth in Division 5NW with three games to play.

Next weekend: away to City of Peterborough 8s.

Wisbech Ladies 6,

Norwich City 1

Wisbech bounced back from their loss at Lincoln.

Georgie Dunn after two minutes had already slotted the ball into the back of the net. Wisbech continued with all of the possession and were rewarded eight minutes later when Lisa Williamson converted her first.

Williamson added to her tally when she, in quick succession, netted her second and then, after the ball hit a Norwich defender’s foot on the goal line, stepped up and coolly slotted home a penalty flick. Wisbech went into the break four goals ahead.

Dunn and Williamson added to their tallies before play finished. PoM: Lisa Williamson.

Next weekend: away Norwich Dragons.
