There’s no better club to ply your trade at than Wisbech Town, Creasey says after Fenmen make it five wins in row

Wisbech Town manager Dick Creasey says goalkeeper Lea Jordan’s return to the club should show his team mates that the grass isn’t always greener elsewhere.
Jordan left last month to try his luck at a higher level with Bedford Town but, after playing one game, rejoined the Fenmen.
Jordan faces a challenge to regain his number one goalkeeping spot - Wisbech has also brought in Andy Hewitt on dual-registration from Boston United.
Creasey said: “Lea probably realised that the grass is not always greener elsewhere. He played one game for Bedford and didn’t enjoy it.
“I think this is a lesson to the other players to think long and hard before making decisions about leaving the club.
“I’ve been around for a long time and keep telling the players there is no better place to play step five football than Wisbech.
“This is a fantastic club and the reason for it is people like Dave Parsons (vice chairman) who, if you cut him, would bleed Wisbech.”

On the pitch, the Fenmen are going from strength to strength - Wisbech beat United Counties League leaders Yaxley 2-0 on Saturday.
Josh Ford broke the deadlock from the penalty spot on 42 minutes and Matt Lunn slotted home after the break.
Yesterday, Ford (2) and Danny Beaumont scored as an under-strength Fenmen made it five wins on the bounce with a 3-2 win over Sawston United in the Cambs Invitation Cup.
Creasey said: “Even when we were not getting the results we wanted I felt the performances were there. Fair play to the lads, they’ve taken everything we’ve asked of them on board and things are coming to fruition.”
Paul Cousins is away at a wedding but otherwise Wisbech will be at full strength when they host Wellingborough in the UCL on Saturday.
Creasey hopes that the Fenmen will be cheered on by a big crowd.
He said: “We’re hoping we can entice some more people to come to our games. It’s good football and good value for money.
“The crowds are starting to pick up but we’re hoping the numbers will swell.”
