First Team vs. Wisbech Town (5 : 1)

Saturday, 9 February, 2019 - 15:00
Evo-Stik League East Division

Sheffield FC coasted to a fourth straight home win on Satrday, writes Stuart James, with a comfortable 5-1 win over Wisbech Town. 

Wisbech took a surprise lead on 16 minutes when Toby Hilliard was allowed space o the left, and after a bustling run that saw him brush aside two Sheffield defenders, before composing himself to slide the ball home. 

It took until the 39th minute for Club to respond, James Gregory making a typical sprint down the flank, before cutting inside for Mitchell Dunne to slam home. 

The game sprung to life just before the break as visiting keeper James Connnell cleared the ball to the half way line, with the ball returned first time with interest by Ashley Grayson, who struck directly into the empty net. 

Club grabbed a third just after the break, once again James Gregory the provider, with Jack Keeble turning into his own net. 

The score was made even more emphatic in the last five minutes, with Declan Bacon scoring twice - the first from the penalty spot after Gregory had been tripped, and with the last move of the game, heading home a Luke Rawson cross from close range.
