Wisbech and March both exit the FA Cup

IT was an awful day in the FA Cup as both Wisbech Town and March Town United crashed out of the competition.

March Town United lost 2-1 at home to Desborough Town while Wisbech were defeated 1-0 by Radcliffe Olympic.

The Fenmen were victims of an FA Cup giant-killing in Nottinghamshire against a side one level below them in the Non-League ladder.

In a scrappy game the Ridgeons Premier Division side failed to respond to going a goal behind in the 14th minute and never managed to get a shot on target.

Website editor, Spencer Larham, said: “We were awful. The opposition did their job and they’re actually a decent side.
