Unfortunate to go a further penalty behind on the half-hour mark, Wisbech went into half-time confident of overturning Watton's slender advantage.

Wisbech started the second half well and made a few changes in personnel that brought some well-deserved scores.

James Napier was introduced on the wing and quickly made his pace tell.

After his incisive run Matt Ringwood pounced to score. Paul Rogers added the conversion for a 7-6 lead.

Wisbech took the game beyond Watton's reach when Napier crossed the line with 15 minutes left and Sam Anderson slotted the conversion.

Wisbech seconds kick off at 3pm tomorrow, and the first team will be looking to maintain their perfect start to the league season, with two wins from two games, when they travel to Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth tomorrow.
