RIDGEONS PREMIER DIVISION
Wisbech Town 1 Stanway Rovers 3
DEFENSIVE errors allowed Stanway to win their first opening match of the season for 10 years.
But Wisbech-player boss Gary Setchell remained upbeat at his side's performance on Saturday.
He said: "We had the lion's share of possession, stuck to our shape and had good discipline but threw away three goals with three individual errors.
"We are not a good enough side to gift teams three goals, but we can take several positives away from our overall performance."

Stanway took the lead after three defenders hesitated and failed to clear the ball leaving a striker a simple finish from a one-on-one.
Rovers doubled their lead when a wideman was allowed too much time to deliver a cross and the ball was headed home and it was 3-0 early in the second half after a defender surrendered possession cheaply.
Substitute Simon Oakly came off the bench to score the goal of the game - a stunning volley from just outside the penalty area after a cross was cleared.
The Fenmen have been boosted by news that former King's Lynn player Charlie Defty, who can play midfield or centre-back, has signed for the club.
Defty may feature in Wisbech's Premier Division match at CRC on Wednesday night.
