THE Fenmen's future could be decided this weekend with player-manager Gary Setchell meeting the board and crucial matches in the Ridgeons Premier Division relegation scrap being played.

Wisbech take on Felixstowe and Walton United at home on Saturday while Norwich United, who occupy the final relegation spot, five points behind the Fenmen, play at CRC on Thursday night.

Both clubs will have two remaining fixtures after the weekend.

Setchell said: "Felixstowe beat us 5-2 at their place and they are a good footballing side, but I see it as a winnable game and I want to make sure we don't have to endure a nervous final game of the season."

Setchell said: "Norwich are showing some character and it's obvious that we can't sit back and expect them to lose."
