WISBECH Town’s FA Cup campaign faltered at the first hurdle on Saturday.

The under-par Fenmen lost 2-1 away at 10-man Swaffham Town in the Extra Preliminary Round.

Wisbech were punished for a sloppy start and fell behind but drew level through an own goal.

But Swaffham responded with a second goal and the Fenmen, despite their man advantage, could not find an equaliser to force a replay.
