Wisbech Town five points behind leaders after beating Kirby Muxloe
Wisbech Town are now just five points behind ChromaSport United Counties League Premier Division leaders Leicester Nirvana after a 3-0 home win over Kirby Muxloe at the Fenland Stadium on Saturday.

Wisbech’s unbeaten run is now 15 games, and they have won their last six in the league.
Boss Gary Setchell had just 12 fit players in his squad due to injury and goalkeeper Paul Bastock being away. Therefore 18-year-old Aaron Watson was signed from King’s Lynn Town as cover.
On four minutes the unmarked Michael Frew bagged the first of his two goals following Alex Beck’s cross. Kirby had ythe ball in the home net but the ‘goal’ was ruled out for offside.
With 12 minutes remaining Adam Millson fed Frew who converted for his second strike. Substitute Kieran Hamilton scored in stoppage time.
Michael Frew Goals 4,78
