Bury St Edmunds 1,

Wisbech Ladies 0

Wisbech started in bouyant spirits after back to back wins last weekend.

In the second half Wisbech found themselves under pressure from Bury who scored on the break.

Wisbech went down to 10 players, however they had much of the possession but failed to convert their chances. PoM: Rosie Stevenson.

Wisbech have a week’s break but travel away to Dereham on December 14.

West Herts 8, Wisbech Town 2

Wisbech can again take a lot of positives from a spirited team performance against the probable winners of Premier A this season.

They took the lead through a Sam Blunt dragflick, only to relinquish it moments later with a dubious deflected goal, which Wisbech thought struck a Herts foot in the circle.

Wisbech shocked the home side again via another Blunt drag flick before Herts showed their attacking class. Herts punished errors with four goals in the last 20 minutes.

Wisbech secured an important East Hockey Mens Division 2N win against fellow relegation contenders Bury with a superb first half display.

Rob Mitchell opened the scoring, only for Bury to equalise soon after. Wisbech then went on the rampage - Brad Apted grabbing four goals and Matt Goodwin capping a fine display with a goal.

This win lifts Wisbech one place above the relegation zone. Wisbech host Norwich Dragons at 1pm on December 14.
