CAMBS INVITATION CUP QUARTER-FINAL
Wisbech Town 3 Lakenheath 1
DICK CREASEY'S reign as Wisbech caretaker manager got off to a winning start as goals from Stuart Cobb, Billy Smith and Scott Cubberly secured their passage to the semi-finals.
The draw has not yet been made but Soham Town Rangers and Cambridge City are already in the semi-finals and CRC and Mildenhall will play the last quarter-final on Tuesday.
This was Wisbech's first match since December 28.
Creasey said: "I told the lads to get the ball down and play football which probably wasn't best thing to do because conditions were bad and more suited to the long ball game.

"The lower clubs usually raise their game to play higher league teams but it was a comfortable win in the end. It was good game for the lads to dust off the cobwebs."
Lakenheath lead Tuesday night's match with a dubious penalty but Cobb equalised on 32 minutes with a low drive from 20 yards.
Smith raced into the penalty area to fire Wisbech into the lead with a low drive into the bottom left corner on 66 minutes and Cubberely completed the scoring when the ball bounced in off his back as he challenged to goalkeeper to a low right-wing cross.
Wisbech travel to second-bottom Wivenhoe Town on Saturday for a league match.
Creasey said: "Wivenhoe have only got six points but I've been around long enough that you never take anything for granted in football.
