We can confirm that Andrew Osei Bonsu has left the club.

Andrews game time has been limited this season and with the arrival of striker Matt Foy that looks likely to continue.

Andrew has made the decision following a conversation with the management team that his best opportunity to play regular football is to explore pastures new and a fresh challenge.

Everyone at the club wishes Andrew all the very best in his next footballing chapter.

Dylan Wilson joins Cogenhoe on a dual registration

We can confirm that Dylan Wilson has signed on a dual registration with United Counties Premier League side Cogenhoe for a month.

The young striker suffered a broken ankle during our home league fixture with Lowerstoft at Christmas and subsequently missed the remainder of the season. Dylan has since missed most of pre season and game time has been limited as a result. The management team have decided joining Cogenhoe for a month is the best pathway for Dylan to gain some valuable minutes before looking to join back up with the squad in October.

We all wish both Dylan and Cogenhoe a successful month and look forward to seeing him back in an Ives shirt soon.

Sunday Round Up – 8th September

Although The Ladies 1st team suffered a fourth straight defeat losing 2-1 at home to Royston Town in the ERWFL Premier, Ladies manager Darren Marjoram was buoyed by the performance. He said “We might not have won but nobody can argue that it was a good performance from the Ladies today. Every single player put a great shift in, and their response to the previous week was outstanding. I couldn’t ask for any more from them. That gives us something to build on.”

Tierney Coulson scored the Ives goal. Mollie Flack was the Ives ‘Player of the Match’ as chosen by Royston.

The Ladies Development team got off to a winning start in the Cambs Premier with a 3-1 victory at Riverside Ladies. Development Manager James Seymour said “Well done to the Ladies devs who came away with a solid 3-1 win away at Riverside. We dominated possession and created some great chances. We could’ve had a few more if it wasn’t for their keeper making some excellent saves. Looking forward for what the season brings.”

The Development goalscorers – Jade Carpenter (x2) & Steph Ransome. Ellen Bullin was awarded ‘Player of the Match’.

EJA LEAGUE

The U16’s came from a goal down at half time to beat Potters Bar Town to win 3-1 in the Brown Division.

According to the U14’s manager Ed Shepherd it was “A fantastic performance on the opening day of the season to secure a 4-0 win over Biggleswade Town.”

George Claxon, Panashe Masviporwa (x2) & Cieron Spencer-Rosborough were the goalscorers in this Yellow Division match.

The U13’s lost 5-1 at Biggleswade Town in the Yellow division.

Ezra was at Hitchin Town last season making 48 appearances and scoring 9 goals. Ezra joined the Canaries from Oxford City the previous year where he made over 35 appearances, scoring a hand full of goals at step 2 in the Vanarama Conference South.

After 8 pre-season games we begin our league campaign hosting Tamworth at WWR.

This fixture is very much a case of deja-vu as this was the opening fixture last season with the Ives running out 1-0 winners. Manashe Sundire scored with a long range effort in the second half.

Ives manager Ricky Marheineke has a full squad to choose from, although Andrew Osei-Bonsu faces late fitness test for selection.

Although Tamworth struggled to adapt in the first half of the season to life at step 3, they finished the campaign very strongly in 12th place, one above the Ives. If they can continue in that vein of form, they will be a strong fancy for at least a play off place this season.

Young defender Johnson joins the Ives

We are delighted to announce the signing of defender Charlie Johnson.

Charlie, 18 was released by league 2 club Cambridge United in the summer after spending many years coming through their excellent youth system. Johnson also spent the last couple of months of last season on work experience with Yaxley FC in the Southern League Central where he helped them to pull away from the bottom of the table and finish the season strongly.

After impressing during the first few weeks of pre season Charlie has been offered a place in the squad and will get the opportunity to step up a level where the manager has every confidence he will continue his development and help the team.

Welcome to the club Charlie and we wish you all the best of luck during your time with us.

Jack Snelus arrives at Westwood Road

The club are this evening delighted to announce the signing of Jack Snelus.

The former Luton Town player is an exciting attacking midfielder. Jack spent last season at Hemel Hempstead in the conference south.

After joining the squad Thursday night, Jack was one of the stand out performers in today’s excellent performance in our very unlucky defeat to Enfield Town.

Please join me in welcoming Jack to the club and we hope your time with us is both an enjoyable and successful experience.

TOTS summer break

We hope you have enjoyed the TOTS sessions as much as we have enjoyed having you. Please note that as summer is upon us and many of you will be enjoying your summer holidays, we are taking a short break  but don’t worry we will be back refreshed on the 31st August at our stadium Westwood Road.
