Wisbech Town win again to secure fourth-placed finish

Ridgeons Premier Division: Wisbech Town 2 Wivenhoe Town 1

WISBECH Town secured a fourth place finish in the Ridgeons Premier Division with a home win against Wivenhoe Town today.

The visitors took the lead just inside the half hour mark after a scrappy start to the match but Darren Jimson equalised to make it 1-1 just before the break.

The Fenmen were much improved after the interval with Callum Reed striking the bar twice with two tremendous efforts.

Simon Flanz put Steve Appleby’s side 2-1 in front with a penalty after a Wivehoe player had handled inside his own area.

The win - Wisbech’s fifth in a row - continued the side’s fine form ahead of Monday’s Ridgeons League Challenge Cup Final against Wroxham.

Spenny Larham, the club’s website and programme editor, said: “It’s been a fantastic season - the best season we’ve had since Dick Creasey’s days as manager.

“We’re going into the cup final on a great run and we’ll give Wroxham a game. They beat us 4-0 in the FA Vase but the scoreline was quite harsh.

“Callum made his debut against them that day - but he’s now part of the team - and we’ve improved immensely since that defeat.”
