Friday 19 August 2016, Wisbech St Mary 1 Kings Lynn Town Reserves 1 - Thurlow Nunn Division One, The Playing Field
Saturday 20 August 2016, Wisbech Town 1 Peterborough Sports 4 - FA Cup Preliminary Round, Fenside Stadium
Two trips to the Fens in just two days, first visit was to Wisbech St Mary, a new club to the Eastern Counties League who seem very well organised and very welcoming- they should also do OK footballing wise. Not a bad game, second half became very scrappy and not helped by two sending offs that only the Ref seemed to think were needed..
Seats should be added to the ground by 2017.
Saturday saw me at the older Wisbech club, a club with a great tradition who used to have a great town centre ground - that has gone now and the new ground is on the edge of town. It may not have much character but it has everything a football club needs - large car park, good social club and a reserve pitch next door.
But footballing wise, it is their opponents who are on the up, only promoted last season but already sitting top of their new league - not many teams will want to face Peterborough in the next round.
