Reigning champions Wisbech showed no mercy to an understrength Peterborough Town team in a Rutland Division clash yesterday (July 15).

Town had commitments in the National Club KO competition so sent a young team to Harecroft Road where they promptly suffered in the son.

Danny Haynes struck 96 for Wisbech against Peterborough Town.
