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.
