WISBECH Town crashed out of the FA Cup on Saturday with a 4-0 defeat at the hands of fellow Ridgeon's Premier League side Needham Market.
Wisbech made a bright start and could have led after three minutes. The crossbar, a header off the line and a goalmouth scramble stopped Paul Cousins' header opening the scoring.
The game was end-to-end afterwards, but Needham took the lead on 17 minutes when Danny Phillips slotted the ball past Fenmen keeper Alex Street.
Darren Jimson should have equalised 10 minutes later, after a Scott Cubberley cross from the left, but his effort was blocked on the line.

And Wisbech were made to pay. On 36 minutes Phillips scored his second of the game by rounding Street and, a few minutes later, Daniel Thrower headed home from a corner.
Needham ended any hopes of a Wisbech comeback six minutes into the second half, when Charlie Defty fouled James Evans in the box and Phillips stepped up to complete his hat trick.
