More news, no ads


Wisbech Town Hockey Club's first teams continued their unbeaten starts to 2022 at the weekend.

The ladies' first team took on third-placed Peterborough 2nd XI in their East Division 1 North clash and came out with a well earned draw.

Captain Jo Bland set the tone with a hard early tackle, but Wisbech were unable to fashion any meaningful openings during the first half.

Bland went closest when she fired just wide, and Ali Beel was called into action at the other end of the pitch with two smart saves.

The second half followed in much the same fashion, and Wisbech's defence held firm for the draw.

“The commitment, intensity and determination from all thirteen ladies led to one of the best performances of the season,” Bland said following the game.

This weekend, the ladies will travel to face Norwich Dragons.

The men's first team had reason to celebrate too after they won 4-1 away at Bourne Deeping.

Sam Markillie scored twice for the visitors, with Fred Whatling and young forward Josh Porter also on the scoresheet.

The result sees Wisbach unbeaten in their last four games and sitting a very respectable 7th in East Men’s Division 1 North.

With a home game against 5th placed Cambridge University 2nd XI this Saturday, there have a chance to further consolidate their place in the division following promotion last year.

The men's second team took on Peterborough's fifth team with a brilliant 2-1 win.

Mike Lawrence's deflected strike gave them the lead before Peterborough converted from a short corner to bring things level, but Jason Mallett scored the winner in the second half.

Wisbech's ladies' second team lost 7-3 at Kettering despite taking an early lead.

Jane Peggs bagged a hat-trick to the fenland side.

The ladies' third team put in a real team performance despite losing 3-1 to Cambridge South's fifth team. Hannah Strickle scored for Wisbech.
