Wisbech Town 6 Rothwell Corinthians 0: Michel Frew hits hat-trick in victory for Fenmen
Wisbech Town moved into third place in the United Counties League Premier Division table after a 6-0 thrashing of mid-table Rothwell Corinthians.
The Fenmen got their noses in front early on, Corinthians’ defender Dan Cooper handling a Michael Frew cross into his own net in the third minute.
Frew grabbed Wisbech’s second goal from six yards after being set up by Alex Beck three minutes before the half hour. Ten minutes later, Frew was on target again in spectacular fashion as he side-foot volleyed home Beck’s pinpoint cross.
The second half was eight minutes old when Beck saw a shot blocked after a powerful run, but Richard Bunting was on hand to smash home the loose ball. Frew completed his hat-trick with 21 minutes remaining as he capitalised on a defensive error to score his 23rd goal of the season.
Billy Smith completed the scoring six minutes from time, latching on to Kieran Hamilton’s squared pass before turning and shooting into the corner.
