The ghosts & the ghouls have long been packed away, & the pumpkins are thrown in the neighbour's bin, but Christmas has certainly come early for Matt Hawes & his Division 4 Wanderers side, as they tasted victory for the first time in 2021, and moved off the bottom of the table in the process with a 3-2 win at Dereham's Lane against Bourne End United.

Goals from Jamie Stringer & Dean Smith put the home side 2-0 up before Bourne End pulled a goal back just before the HT break.

Stringers second of the game was enough to win the game, despite another Bourne End goal.
