FA Vase Second Round: Racing Club Warwick 0 Wisbech Town 1
WISBECH Town continued their dream of reaching a Wembley FA Vase Final today by beating Racing Club Warwick 1-0.
Steve Appleby’s Fenmen secured their passage into the Vase’s third round thanks to a first-half goal from Callum Reed.
But Warwick - who play one level below Wisbech in the non-league ladder - pushed Appleby’s side all the way in a tense encounter.
Delighted Wisbech supporters will head back to Fenland in buoyant mood especially as the club’s fiercest rivals, and last season’s Vase semi-finalists, King’s Lynn Town, exited the competition today losing 2-0 at Gresley.
The Fenmen, who have won their last nine games and are unbeaten in their last 12 matches, picked up £1,200 for the victory.
They return to action on Tuesday night as they continue their quest to retain the Ridgeons League Challenge Cup with a second round game at Norwich United.
