Wisbech Town denied winning start by former March Town United star Escorcio

Friendly: Wisbech Town 1 Soham Town Rangers 1

FORMER March Town United star Denny Escorcio scored against his old Fenland rivals to deny Wisbech Town a winning start to the season against Soham Town Rangers.

Escorcio - who has impressed for Andy Furnell’s Soham since leaving the Hares - struck early in the second half to secure a share of the spoils for his new side in Saturday’s 1-1 draw.

His equaliser came after Fenmen striker Nick Davey had opened the scoring mid-way through the first half - converting from the penalty spot.

Former Fenmen striker Furnell’s return to the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium saw an entertaining friendly with Wisbech good value against the Ryman League side.

Wisbech ‘keeper Chris Horton also impressed for Appleby’s side, saving a first-half penalty to start his season in style.

Wisbech Town continue their pre-season preparations with a trip to rivals March Town United tomorrow (Tuesday) night. Kick off is 7.45pm.
