There was more disappointment for a depleted Wisbech Town Reserves as they were defeated 1-0 at Eunice Huntingdon. The Fenmen had the better first half chances and should have seen themselves leading at half time.

In the second half Eunice started on top but Wisbech then started to dominate possession and were pushing for the win when Eunice broke and scored in the 80th minute.

Manager Jonny Pearce said: “I am starting to sound like a broken record but it’s another late goal we have conceded to lose the game which is becoming very frustrating, especially when we were on top for the majority of the game.

"We have to learn to defend for the whole 90 minutes. I thought at times we played our best football since I’ve taken over so there are plenty of positives to take from the performance and we have a lot of players to come back for the League Cup next week, against the same opposition."

Long Sutton Athletic Reserves registered their third win of the season in Division Two, beating Parkside 3-2, Jordan Nicholls netting twice and Kye Bunce also on target.
