Wisbech St Mary answered boss Arran Duke’s call to be more clinical in stunning style last night.

Duke believed his players needed to take more of their chances despite beating Needham Market Reserves 3-1 last Saturday and the villagers responded by smashing six past a hapless Dereham Town Reserves last night.

Braces from Nick Davey and Rob Harris and further strikes from Ryan Lennon and Danny Emmington fired the Saints to their third consecutive league win – and to the top of the Thurlow Nunn First Division.

“I’m very pleased with the result and performance,” Duke said. “The lads were asked to be more clinical in front of goal as I felt we wasted too many chances on Saturday but we were much better last night.

“Defensively we were well organised and our midfield covered lots of ground.”
