AS freezing conditions put paid to Wisbech Town’s matches again last weekend the players got the chance to blow off some much-needed steam with some fun in the snow - and the boxing ring!

Wisbech Town FC players training during a visit to Wisbech Amateur Boxing Club.

First, Steve Appleby’s troops enjoyed a Saturday session in the snow before heading to Wisbech Amateur Boxing Club on Wednesday night to don some gloves that weren’t woolly.

Appleby said: “We just want to keep up the fitness levels to be ready for the next time we play.

“You don’t want to make it a chore so we’ve got some work done but had a laugh too.

“We’ve already got great team spirit and have been on a couple of nights out together but activities like this bring us closer as a group which is vital because it’ll be a big fight for every point over the next few months.”
