Match Report

The Fenmen got the 2017-18 season off to a winning start with a 2-1 win over Wellingborough Town.

Alex Beck scored after just 86 seconds of the new season with a looping effort over several defenders after excellent work from Adam Millson to keep the ball in play.

Despite numerous chances to do so, it took until the final minute of the half for Wisbech to extend their lead.  Billy Smith put a pinpoint cross into the box and Josh Ford buried the ball from a couple of yards out.

Five minutes after the break, Wellingborough got themselves back into the game with breakaway down the right which was finished by Justin Downing.

The visitor's enjoyed a much better second half but they could find an equaliser, despite the very harsh sending-off of Wisbech captain Jon Fairweather in the final minute, a second booking after a 50/50 tackle.
