Jack Bass got in on the act five minutes later after a wonderful free-flowing passing move which was finished with a fantastic finish into the top corner before Jupp made it 3-0 with another good finish.

There was no let-up in the second half after Ben Tarratt added a fourth from a short corner.

Further goals for Ryan Jackson (2), Danny Haynes, Bass with his second and another short corner goal through Jason Esser put the icing on the promotion cake.

At the beginning of the season promotion was the aim, and to return to the league they were in last year at the first time of asking is a great achievement.

The men's 3rds recorded a 4-2 victory over Cambridge South in an end-to-end counter that saw Wisbech goalkeeper Rob McGregor save a penalty flick.

Ciaran Lowe calmly took the ball around the keeper and put Wisbech into an early lead while Jordan Bown and Eliott Peck slotted home further goals before Cambridge South brought it back to 3-2.

Wisbech didn’t let their nerves get the better of them and a well-worked short corner routine in the last minute resulted in Tyler Eggleton calmly putting the game to bed.

Man-of-the-match: Calvin Bishop.

Wisbech ladies played some of the best hockey of the season against Norwich Dragons on Saturday despite suffering a 1-0 defeat. Joint player-of-the-match went to Georgie Dunn and Liv Jackson.
