Wisbech Town boss looking for new and old faces to raise Fenmen’s noise levels
WISBECH Town boss Steve Appleby wants to bring new faces, and noise levels, to his revamped Fenmen squad.
Appleby released Craig Parker, Ash Murrell and Wayne Morris ahead of Saturday’s FA Vase match with Newmarket Town and was left with much to shout about as his side fought back from 2-0 down to secure a dramatic victory.
After last night’s 1-1 draw at Mildenhall Town the Fenmen boss admitted he’s still looking for a couple of additions, and a louder squad, to raise the roof at the Tom Wood’s Beer Fenland Stadium in the coming weeks.
“I wish the players were as noisy on the pitch as they are off it,” said Appleby.
“We’ve got a good set of lads in the changing room but sometimes we can be a bit quiet when we cross the white line. I know certain players can be a bit quieter but I’m a bit old school.

“It’s all about talking when you the pass the ball and communicating with each other and I plan to get us doing that more.
“We’ve played some good football in the last two games and you’ve been able to see a difference in our performances. Hopefully a couple of new players will help complete the squad which isn’t far off.”

Appleby has put in a seven-day approach for Newmarket Town midfielder Paul Jones and is chasing a couple of other targets to join new-boy, Stacy Cartwright, who has impressed.
He said: “Cartwright played centre-half with Paul Cousins last night and has fitted in very well. His versatility is a bonus.
“I couldn’t stay loyal at all costs and the 1-1 draw with Brantham Athletic was the final straw. Changes had to be made and I will keep tweaking things until we get it right.
“I want us to finish as high in the league as we can and have a good cup and sometimes I’ll have to make tough decisions.
“There was nothing personal in moving Parker, Murrell and Morris on. I’ve played with them, are friends with them and therefore didn’t find it easy but we needed to freshen things up.”
