Georgie Dunn was twice the hero as Wisbech Town kicked off 2015 with back to back wins.

Dunn scored a deflection from a penalty corner in Wisbech’s 1-0 win over Lincoln on Saturday.

The following day, Dunn again struck from a penalty corner in a 1-0 win over Norwich city in the Ladies’ Trophy. They take on Spalding in the next round on February 8.

Captain Leanne Williamson, reflecting on the Lincoln win, said: “I thought we played excellently considering the lack of training we’ve had due to weather and Christmas. We were always in control of the game.”

Williamson says Wisbech, who are fifth in East Women’s Division 1N, have set themselves a promotion target.
