Lethal Reed grabs another goal as Wisbech Town stretch winning run to four games

Ridgeons Premier Division: FC Clacton 0 Wisbech Town 2

WISBECH Town stretched their winning run to four games by strolling to a 2-0 victory over FC Clacton.

The Fenmen followed up Tuesday’s thumping 6-2 league cup semi-final win over Stowmarket Town by cruising to a comfortable win at The Rush Green Bowl.

Callum Reed - who found the back of the net four times in Tuesday night’s win - continued his lethal goalscoring form by putting Wisbech ahead in the seventh minute.

The former Peterborough United trainee lashed the ball home from 15 yards, when the ball broke kindly for him on the edge of the box.

And the Fenmen extended their lead five minutes later, when Ash Stevens outpaced the defence and slotted past the Clacton ‘keeper.

The Seasiders rarely troubled a dominant Wisbech and Lea Jordan was a spectator for most of the game.
