Reserves win thrilling cup final to seal great season for Wisbech Town

WISBECH Town Reserves came from behind three times to secure a dramatic 4-3 extra-time victory last night to win the Cambs FA William Coad Cup.

Sam Murphy’s first-half brace made it 2-2 at the break but John Knight and Daz Edey’s side conceded for a third time after the interval to give Soham Town Rangers Reserves the upper hand once again.

The Fenmen looked to be heading for defeat but with just seconds left on the clock powerful frontman Darren Jimson - who picked up a cup winners medal for the club’s fist team less than a fortnight ago - equalised to take the game into extra time.

Aaron McKenna put Wisbech in front for the first time in the game after latching onto Nathan Watson’s through ball and the Fenmen hung on to clinch the club’s second trophy of a fantastic season.
