VIDEO: Davey on target as Wisbech Town see off struggling Walsham-le-Willows
Ridgeons Premier Division: Walsham-le-Willows 1 Wisbech Town 2
STRIKER Nick Davey scored his first league goal for Wisbech Town as they beat struggling Walsham-le-Willows 2-1 today.
Davey, who has only recently returned from a loan spell with Yaxley, hammered home Wisbech’s second goal, which proved to be the winner at The Meadow.
The Fenmen had looked to be in for a frustrating afternoon against third-from-bottom Walsham as the home side threw men behind the ball to keep the game goalless at half time.
But centre-back Neal Spafford broke the deadlock minutes into the second-half when he nodded home a corner won by Davey.
