A CAMBS Invitation Cup Fen Derby remains a possibility after Wisbech Town and March Town United came through their first round ties last night.

The Fenmen outclassed Linton Granta, claiming a 4-1 win, while the Hares pipped Lakenheath 1-0 despite the absence of their manager.

Paul Crosbie was away in Brussels with the Tartan Army, supporting Scotland as they limped to a 2-0 defeat against Belgium.

But his troops still did the job at the GER, as James McDonough’s strike 15 minutes from time proved enough to edge them into the quarter-finals.

For the Fenmen it was a more comfortable evening, as goals from Anthony Reeve, Darren Jimson, Lewis Clayton and in-form Adam Millson saw them breeze into the next round.

Steve Appleby’s side also had time to miss a penalty - Rogan McGeorge saw his spot-kick well saved - and have Reeve sent off for stamping.

The quarter-finals are due to be played in January.
