Over 400 fans to watch Bourne and Wisbech
Bourne attracted the biggest crowd of the local ‘ground-hop’ weekend as 459 turned up at the Abbey Lawns to watch Raunds win 2-1 in a United Counties Division One match last Friday night.
Wisbech also attracted a gate in excess of 400 for their 2-1 UCL Premier Division win over Wellingborough Town at the Fenland Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Alex Beck and debutant Josh Ford scored their goals before Jon Fairweather was sent off in the 90th minute.
Holbeach opened their Premier Division campaign with a 6-0 wallopping of a weak Sleaford Town side.
New signing Will Bird struck twice, but the Tigers’ city-based manager Seb Hayes felt they should have scored a dozen goals.
