Midfielder Danny Setchell gets goal back for the Fenmen

By Pete Woodhouse

Wisbech Town FC lost their Evo-Stik NPL Division One East basement battle 2-1 at home to bottom side Gresley on Saturday.

The visitors scored after nine minutes and were gifted a second goal on the half hour after an attempted throw out by the home goalkeeper hit a defender.

Midfielder Danny Setchell got one back for the Fenmen just before the break with a diving header.
