Wisbech Town Ladies 5 Pinchbeck United 2
The ‘Fenladies’ kicked off 2019 with a comfortable win against a side who have inproved very much since they last visited the Elgood’s Stadium on the opening day of the season.
Amy Newell opened the scoring, beating the impressive visiting keeper at the second attempt.
Newell then added a second before half-time when she volleyed in a fantastic cross by Chloe Stanborough, who had an excellent game in the middle of the pitch.
Town started the second half strongly and added a third goal through skipper Faye Kowalewsky after more good build-up play down the wing.
The visitors’ forward hit a dipping shot over stand-in keeper Amy Hepting, leaving her no chance. Sophie Swinden added a fourth goal for Wisbech when she calmly slotted home a loose ball from a corner before Pinchbeck added a second via a ball over the top, making it 4-2. Newell sealed the win with her hat-trick goal ten minutes from time.
Wisbech are still unbeaten in the league with six wins from six.

March produced another very good performance, but again luck deserted them in front of goal.
They produced some excellent build-up play and were unlucky to go in at half-time trailing by the only goal. March came out in the second half again playing good football, but fell further behind before pulling one back through Harry Haslett, but they then conceded a late goal.
