Wisbech II 3 Spalding I 2
WISBECH II showed true grit and character to secure another three points with a last minute winner at home against a resolute Spalding I.
Off the back of a win away to March II last weekend, Wisbech kept their heads on Saturday and with that a 100 per cent record.

Wisbech started the game without their two regular wing men, but Tom Peggs and Tom Jupp dropped back from their forward roles and showed that they had depth to their game.
That left room for Karl Belding, who walked off with a brace, and newly-promoted James Turner who, having come back on for the last five minutes found the net with only a minute left from a well worked short corner.

The back four - Orlando Prestidge, Shaun Claxton, Jordan Trundle and Alan Hanrahan - were solid as ever and with Lee Peck and Mark Littlechild at the heart of the team providing opportunities for the front men, Wisbech were always going to have a chance.
James Dod, skipper and keeper, was at fault for Spalding's first goal but a goal either side of half time was a result of hard work and new character.
Dod said: "With effort like that, self belief, simple hockey and keeping this team spirit we have, it can only do well for future games.
