Wisbech Town 2 Wroxham 1

TOMMY TREACHER scored on his debut as Wisbech pulled off a shock win over Premier Division heavyweights Wroxham on Tuesday night.

Rory Harper gave Wisbech a 23rd-minute lead with a back heel in the six-yard box after the ball was headed into his path following a corner.

Treacher took advantage of a defensive mix-up to double the lead in the 60th minute.

A Wroxham defender put too much power on a headed pass back to his goalkeeper and Treacher, signed from Peterborough League side Moulton Harriers, outmuscled the Norfolk man to tap into an empty net.

Wroxham pulled one back 10 minutes later but it turned out to be just a consolation goal.

Wisbech boss Steve Appleby said: "The lads worked incredibly hard and played some great football.

"Tommy's strong, got a good physical presence and he scores goals. I didn't want to sign anyone until the summer but I feel a few players need a bit of a kick up the backside and our season was at risk of fading out.

"I hope to bring a defender in before Saturday, but I can't name him at this stage.
