Dominant Wisbech Town storm to comfortable home win
Ridgeons Premier Division: Wisbech Town 3 Debenham LC 1
WISBECH Town dominated already-relegated Debenham LC at the Tom Wood’s Beer Fenland Stadium on Saturday to pick up a comfortable victory.
The Fenmen threatened to notch up a cricket score as they poured forward in the first half creating a hatful of chances. Yet it wasn’t until the 42nd minute that the home side deservedly took the lead.
Veteran frontman Andy Furnell - who has reportedly been approached by former club Soham Town Rangers to become their new manager - latched onto Darren Jimson’s through ball before dinking it over Debenham’s ‘keeper to make it 1-0.
The sorry visitors only managed three shots on target throughout the game but stunned the Fenmen faithful when they equalised early in the second half after Anthony Reeve was caught in possession.

Matt Lunn added a third in similar style to complete the Fenmen’s deserved victory.
Spencer Larham, the club’s website and programme editor, said: “We were absolutely the 100 per cent dominant side throughout.
“We had half-a-dozen decent chances in the first half but through a variety of things, including fantastic keeping, it stayed 0-0 for much longer than we expected. I just kept thinking there’s more goals in this.
“Realistically we could have scored 10, which is excellent considering we had to make a couple of changes.”
The victory keeps the Fenmen in fifth place and on course for their highest league finish in six years.
