Luke Ryan solved a goalkeeping crisis in fine style for Wisbech St Mary A last Saturday.

The full-back donned the gloves in the absence of the team’s regular shot-stopper and delivered an impressive display during a 1-1 draw at Mepal Sports in Division 2B of the Cambs League.

Mariusz Kudyba found the net for the Saints side as they retained their top-six position in the table.

The Wisbech St Mary first team also picked up a point in the Kershaw Premier Division. Ricky Bowden hit their goal in a 1-1 deadlock at West Wratting.

Gary Haime’s all conquering Saints Reserves took another step towards the Division 1B crown as Edgaras Buzas and Aaron McKenna goals earned a 2-0 victory against Over Sports Reserves.

The club’s B team saw off West Row Gunners by the same scoreline in Division 3B and the C side edged out Chatteris A 3-2 in Division 4B.

Outwell Swifts are another local side homing in on title honours.
