Wisbech Town FC seal new kit deal
Wisbech Town Football Club chairman Malcolm Clements has welcomed a deal with ProEdge Construction ahead of the new football season.
ProEdge Construction Ltd, a specialist highways maintenance and civil engineering contractor in both Mepal and March, will have their name on the first team home and away kits, as well as the tracksuits.
A delighted Clements said: “We are very happy to welcome ProEdge Construction on board and hope to have a long and happy relationship with them.
“The new kits look very nice and here’s to a very successful season.”
ProEdge director Bob Sculthorpe said: “ProEdge Construction is delighted to be involved with local football and in particular Wisbech Town FC.
“The ProEdge Group has been involved with local football for about six years. It also has a very close relationship with several players within the Wisbech set-up and we hope to develop this even further.”
Wisbech Town’s scheduled friendly against Kirkley and Pakefield on Saturday was cancelled due to player unavailability. Jon Fairweather, Paul Cousins, Billy Smith and Luke Greer were all carrying slight knocks following the 3-1 friendly victory over Soham Town Rangers last Tuesday.
Striker Charley Sanders opened his account for the club with Scott Johnson and Nick Davey also scoring, while Wisbech missed a penalty.
Fenmen boss Brett Whaley said: “I hate cancelling friendlies. To lose three more players on top of those who were already unavailable meant playing this game would have hindered rather than helped our preparations, so we were left with no choice.
“We are already without Declan Rogers and Rob Hughes for our opening league game and at this stage you don’t want to be losing any more players out of your squad.”
Last night, the Fenmen were due to be in action at Godmanchester Rovers.
On Friday, they conclude their pre-season preparations when they host a King’s Lynn Town XI at the Elgoods Stadium.
“I’m not sure what kind of side King’s Lynn will be bringing but we will be treating the game properly,” said Whaley. “It will be our last proper work-out and our last chance to work on a few things before our first league game.”
