Jimson hits quickfire hat-trick as Wisbech Town Reserves march into second semi final

Cambs FA William Coad Cup: Girton United 3 Wisbech Town Reserves 6

POWERFUL frontman Darren Jimson scored a scintillating quickfire hat-trick as Wisbech Town Reserves marched through to the semi final of the Cambs FA William Coad Cup.

With the first team’s game called off due to a waterlogged pitch the Fenmen’s second string revelled in the spotlight, cruising to a 6-3 win at Girton United.

Jimson scored two early goals and added his third with a penalty after just 15 minutes had been played.

Girton pulled one back before half time, but the home side were dominated throughout by a Wisbech line-up in imperious form.

Dan Fysh added a fourth for the Fenmen shortly after the break and Girton’s miserable day continued when their keeper was given his marching orders for felling Aaron Turner in the box.

Turner picked himself up to score the resulting penalty, beating an outfield player who was forced to fill in for his dismissed team-mate.

And it was a second Turner penalty that provided Wisbech’s sixth, when the livewire forward slotted home after Mark Jimson had been brought down by a desperate Girton defender.

Wisbech conceded two late goals in a sloppy finish, but the emphatic result sees them cruise into the last four of the cup - their second semi final of the season.

“It was certainly an interesting game to watch,” said Spencer Larham, the club’s website editor. “We saw nine goals, a hat-trick and a few penalties - it was a good game.”

Wisbech Reserves will face either Longstanton or Linton Granta in the semi final, which will be played at the Tom Wood’s Beer Fenland Stadium.
