Sam Anderson kicked a penalty with the last kick of the game to give Wisbech seconds a dramatic 15-14 win over Spalding III in a friendly on Saturday.
Spalding went ahead with a converted try midway through the first half but the hosts responded with a try from Lewis Mews.
Man of the match Jason Goat scored a try early in the second half, which was converted by Sam Anderson.
Spalding levelled the scores following a powerful drive, with their kicker nailing an impressive conversion from the touchline.
As the clock ticked down it looked as if Spalding were going to win but on full time the visitors conceded a penalty in front of their posts.
Anderson stepped up and slotted it through the uprights to send a big crowd into raptures.
Wisbech manager Cliff Humphreys said: “I was very impressed with the band of brothers spirit that the second team has. They play for each other.
