Wisbech remain routed to the bottom of Premier A after they lost their seventh game in a row.

Dan Martell scored from a well worked corner but Wisbech lost 5-1 to Cambridge City II at Harecroft Road.

Next up for Wisbech as they look to get their first points of the season is a daunting looking home game against second placed Cambridge University on Saturday.

Captain Charlie Baxter said: “It was a disappointing game for many reasons, we’re trying to compete but things aren’t going our way.

“We had 16 in the squad so we felt that physically we would have an advantage as we could keep everyone fresh.

“But little things aren’t going our way, and when you’re at the bottom of the league without a win it feels like everything is going against you.

“It’s hard for the lads to want to keep turning up to train and turn up and put it in on a Saturday, and I thank them for their efforts and only hope that they can keep going.

“If we can snatch even a point at this stage it changes the dressing room and gives everyone a lift and changes the whole feeling in the camp.”

Wisbech ladies bounced back from a disastrous start to pick up a 2-2 draw at Blueharts.

Blueharts scored two goals in the first five minutes. It took Wisbech a few minutes to find their feet and once they settled into the game started to dominate the possession and were rewarded with a goal slotted home by Jane Peggs.

Soon after Lisa Williamson brought Wisbech level after the Blueharts keeper kicked the ball into her chest. Williamson coolly put the ball in the back of the net.

Despite numerous attacking opportunities Wisbech could not find the winning goal.
