Wisbech Town back in top six after 12th Ridgeons Premier Division draw of the season

Ridgeons Premier Division: Felixstowe & Walton United 1 Wisbech Town 1

WISBECH Town’s inconsistent campaign continued as they drew 1-1 to move back into the top six of the Ridgeons Premier Division.

The Fenmen went 1-0 down against the run of play but replied within a minute when Lewis Thompson smashed home from a corner. Neither side controlled a scrappy second half even though the home side nearly snatched all three points at the death, forcing Lea Jordan into a fine save.

The club’s website and programme editor Spencer Larham said: “A point against a team away from home who are battling for their lives could be deemed as OK I suppose we can do so much better.

“A draw was a fair result because Felixstowe battled well throughout. I’ve seen better games - the second half really petered out.”

The result leaves Wisbech one point ahead of seventh-placed Norwich United, who they face at the Tom Wood’s Beer Fenland Stadium on Tuesday night. Felixstowe & Walton United remain just one point, and one place, clear of the relegation zone.

Elsewhere, Wisbech Town Reserves lost 4-2 against Milton in their second cup semi-final of the season.
