Wisbech Ladies sent out a warning shot to the rest of the league with a 10-0 demolition of Watton.

They broke the deadlock in the first three minutes and kept up the relentless attack throughout the first half to go in 4-0 ahead at half time.

Merciless Wisbech weren’t done yet and bagged another six goals after the break.

Lisa Williamson hit a hat-trick, Natalie Ward, Claire Apted and Jane Peggs bagged braces and Katie Rodger was on target.

Wisbech will look to carry on their momentum when they travel to Blueharts, who are one point ahead of them in fourth, on Saturday.

Captain Leanne Williamson said: “Our performance was excellent, everything we have practised over the last few weeks has finally come together.

“I really hope we can take this positive result forward next week so we can get all the available points from next week, we played Blueharts pre season and it was a tricky game so we aren’t expecting an easy ride.”

However, it was a familiar story for Wisbech men who suffered their sixth straight loss of the season.

A depleted squad was put to the sword by Bedford, losing 6-0.

Wisbech, who host mid-table Cambridge City II tomorrow, are the only team without a point in East Premier A.

Captain Charlie Baxter said: “We only travelled with 12 players so we hope to have a few people back this weekend.

“Things are difficult at the moment but we‘ve got to keep positive and train hard.

“There are probably five teams who are going to challenge for the title and the rest are in a dog fight to stay up.”
