Wisbech boss set to welcome new signings

More news, no ads


Wisbech Town FC manager Kevin Ward has to pick up his troops for the visit of ninth-spot Ilkeston Town on Saturday.

His preparations for the home match at the Fenland Stadium have been dealt a major blow with the news that exciting young defender Beckham Kennelly has left the club.

But Ward is set to make a couple of signings this week.

The Fenmen boss said: “We’re slowly getting better. We’re going to try and put on a major performance in the home game. We’re pretty convinced we can put a show on for the ladies and gents that put the time and effort in to come and watch us.

“We are looking to add to the squad. We only had three subs on Saturday. I’ve had a couple of lads on the bench that I didn’t really want to put on.

“I’ve got a few in mind that would be available but we’ve just got to work a deal out within what we’ve got to work with at the club.”

Mason Lee, despite being Ilkeston’s player, should be available for Wisbech while skipper Sam Spencer should return from a head injury.

Kennelly, who has impressed in a struggling Fenmen side since coming back from a long-term injury, has joined BetVictor Southern Premier Central League strugglers St Ives Town, who ply their trade a step higher than Wisbech in the non-league ladder.

He said: “It’s not a decision I have taken lightly but, for my progression as a player and wanting to play at the highest level I can, it’s the decision I’ve made.

“I just wanted to thank the fans for always supporting me and always making me feel welcome, whether I was playing or out through injury. I would also like to thank the chairman, Erin, Spenny and the management staff for everything that has been done for me these past two seasons.

“Good luck for the rest of the season.”

• In Thurlow Nunn League First Division North last Saturday, March Town United’s home game against Cornard United was postponed due to poor weather.

The Hares have two games coming up during the next week. On Saturday, March travel to Lakenheath and on Tuesday they entertain Haverhill Borough.
