Both the men’s and ladies’ first teams earned their first wins for Wisbech Town Hockey Club in the East League. 

Jo Gomm netted a hat-trick as the ladies beat Cambridge University 2nds 3-2 in the women’s Division One North, scoring twice in the second half. 

They travel to Peterborough 2nds this weekend. 

Goals from Jamie Hallatt and Ryan Jackson inspired the men’s first team to a 3-0 victory over Cambridge City 3rds in the men’s Division One North. 

Wisbech will be without captain Charlie Baxter for the game with Bourne-Deeping 1sts at Harecroft Road on Saturday, 1.45pm, owing to an ankle injury picked up last weekend. 

The men’s 2nds were frustrated at Kettering thanks to a moment of controversy in their 1-1 draw in Division Three North West. 

Pete Skitmore struck first for Wisbech, before a shot from outside the Wisbech circle was adjudged to have crossed the line despite no Kettering player inside the area appearing to have touched the ball.
