St Albans played some excellent passing hockey in the second half and ran out comfortable winners, with Drew Harvey scoring a consolation goal from a short corner midway through the period.

Bottom-placed Wisbech are already relegated and play their final match of the season against Bluehearts at 1pm on Saturday.

Wisbech chairman of selectors and player Jonathan Shippey said: "It's been a tough season but it's a remarkable achievement that little old Wisbech have been playing one level below the National League."
