Goals from Danny Beaumont, Steven Reid and Tommy Treacher saw Wisbech Town finish their season on a high.

The Fenmen end their United Counties League campaign in third, an impressive finish considering their slow start to the season, although their 14 game winning streak put them right in the title picture.

Manager Dick Creasey, speaking after the game, said: “Our performance typified our last few games of the season. The last minute goal at Rushden & Diamonds knocked the stuffing out of us. We never really recovered from that.

“Since then, even in games we have won, we’ve not really performed well enough. That’s cost us our runners-up spot and we’ve only got ourselves to blame.

“However, looking at the bigger picture, it’s been a great season.”

Creasey says he is “relishing” the challenge of leading the Fenmen again this season.

He said: “This is when the hard work starts. As was discussed at the fans forum, the budget has been cut, so I’m hoping the players will take a cut and stay with us. I would like to keep the squad together because we have a good base. We don’t have to do much.
