The ladies 1sts suffered a 6-1 defeat at home to Cambs South 1sts in East Women's Division 1 North, Harriet Bateman netting a consolation.

There was also a heavy loss for the ladies 2nds, who were beaten 8-0 on home soil by Bourne Deeping.

Player-of-the-match was awarded to Georgia for her defensive efforts with several votes also for Ali B who also played her part.

The ladies 4ths came out on the wrong side of a 1-0 defeat at Long Sutton.

Helen Pentelow made several notable saves between the posts while Wisbech were unable to take any of the chances that came their way.

Player-of-the-match was Harriet Clark.

Wisbech men moved to within a point of the league title with a nail-biting 3-2 win over St Ives.

The win leaves Wisbech eight points clear with only nine left to play for and they will hope to wrap things up this weekend away at Peterborough 4ths.

An early goal from Tom Jupp settled some nerves but St Ives continued to press high up the field and were a threat on the break, getting an equaliser before half-time.

Goals from Jack Bass and Ben Tarratt sealed the result before St Ives made it a nerve-wracking last ten minutes with a second of their own.

An excellent second-half display saw the men's 2nds return home from Spalding with a 3-0 victory - a win that also leaves them top of the table.

After a goalless first half in Lincolnshire, Jason Mallett opened the scoring before Johnny Garner and a second for Mallett wrapped up a fine victory.

The men's 4ths returned to action after a three-week break and marked it with a 2-1 win against Kettering 4ths.

Wisbech took the lead around 10 minutes in from an excellent Ciaran Lowe strike from the top of the D and, although Kettering equalised, Brandon Ruff was on hand to score the winner.
