The Development team managed by Lisa Trigg will be in the Cambridgeshire Women’s County Football League Championship South Division.

Ladies complete Premiership winning campaign with a 3-0 victory

The Ladies completed their league campaign last night at the ProEdge WWR with a fine 3-0 win over runners-up Newmarket Town Ladies to finish a fantastic league winning season.

The Ladies only dropped 5 points in total during the campaign. 3 of those were from the first game of the season. They then went on a 20 game unbeaten run to finish on 58 points.

Ladies manager Darren Marjoram said –

What an unbelievable season! And what a group of players! To go out tonight and win 3-0 sums this lot up! Talented, hardworking and truly the nicest people you will ever meet. Never ever been so proud! The memories from tonight will last forever.

Thank you to everyone St Ives Town for allowing us to represent the club we love. Thank you to all those who came along tonight to support and make it such a special night, and the biggest thank you of all to Lisa Trigg. None of this success would be possible without her.

I also want to say a huge thank you to our main sponsor Move With Us for sponsoring the kit for the last 2 years, to City Security Services for sponsoring the tracksuits and Blue Box Solutions for sponsoring the polo tops.

The League trophy and winners medals were presented to the players after the game.

St Ives Town Ladies Crowned Premiership Champions

The Ladies 1st team found out today that they have won the Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership Division for 2017/18.

Ladies manager Darren Marjoram was informed by Netherton United, of whom they were scheduled to play this coming Sunday, that they are unable to raise a team and thus the 3 points are being awarded to the Ives, giving them an unassailable lead on 55 points with one game left to play.

This is a marvellous achievement by Darren, his assistants and of course the players. It’s only their third season in existence and their second promotion as they will take their place in the Eastern Region Women’s Football League next season. A step up of which eveyone will be looking forward to.

Congratulations to Darren, the Ladies and everyone else involved.

Match Report – Cambridge City Ladies Development v St Ives Town Ladies

Cambridge City Ladies Development v St Ives Town Ladies

Cambridgeshire Women’s S-Tech Premiership – 8 April 18
Double Header – 0-3 & 0-2

St Ives Town Ladies travelled to Trinity College Sports Ground in Cambridge to play a double header against Cambridge City Ladies Development on Sunday, and came away with the full 6 available points in difficult conditions. Despite the rain falling continuously throughout the morning, the pitch was, as always, in excellent condition and allowed both sides to play some good passing football. The first game saw both teams start well, with some good spells of possession, but little initial threat on either goal. The visitors finally broke the deadlock when Katie Stancombe found some space to beat her defender before driving into the box and then firing a low shot past the Cambridge keeper. The goal gave the Ives some impetus to drive forward, and they scored again when a corner was only cleared as far as Mollie Flack, who floated a fantastic shot over the keeper and into the roof of the net. The goal was Flack’s first ever goal for St Ives after nearly 3 years at the Club. Cambridge continued to have some success of their own at the other end, especially from the wide areas, and despite the 2 goal lead for Ives, there was still little to choose between the sides in overall play. In the second half, St Ives continued to repel the home side’s attacks while still managing their own with several attempts narrowly wide. The game was put beyond doubt late in the second half when the returning Katherine Speed received a pass beyond the defender before expertly placing her shot into the bottom corner. So the final score in game 1 was 3-0 to St Ives, with Mollie Flack picking up the Player of the Match award for her excellent defending and for her first ever Ives goal.

Game 2 started after a short break with the rain finally starting to ease, but once again the pitch remained in good condition which was a real testament to the grounds staff at Trinity. Again this game started relatively evenly, with both teams having opportunities to attack after periods of possession. As all the players began to tire in the conditions, it was always going to take an extraordinary effort to get forward in numbers and create scoring opportunities. St Ives reintroduced Georgia Stancombe after a break, and she had the desired effect to help increase the tempo. This led to the Saints winning a penalty 20 minutes into the first half, which Katherine Speed scored in some style. Georgia Stancome then got the reward she deserved for her efforts a few minutes later when she received a pass on the edge of the box before taking a touch and firing a low drive past the home keeper. Into the second half, and Cambridge really started to trouble the visitors now with some sustained attacks. Tierney Coulson epitomised the effort St Ives were prepared to put into the game by constantly pressing from the front, while backed up by her team mates. Cambridge won two corners midway through the second period, and both looked extremely dangerous before eventually being cleared by the Ives defence. Ellie Brown in particular was showing her skill and desire in defence to continue to prevent Cambridge from scoring. In the final few minutes, Kira Markwell pulled off a fantastic save to preserve the clean sheet for her team when diving at full stretch to her right to turn a low shot around the post when it looked certain to find the back of the net. So the second game of this double header ended 2-0 to St Ives. Huge credit must also be given to Cambridge City for their excellent play in what was a gruelling 2 hours of football. The Ives Player of the Match was Ellie Brown for her outstanding defensive play and assured passing throughout the game.

Match Report – Newmarket Town Ladies 0 St Ives Town Ladies 2

Newmarket Town Ladies 0 St Ives Town Ladies 2

Cambridgeshire Women’s S-Tech Premiership – 1 April 18

Despite all the recent bad weather, the top of the table clash between St Ives Town Ladies and Newmarket Town Ladies went ahead thanks to the fantastic 3G surface at Newmarket Town.

Prior to the game St Ives were top and held a 4 point advantage over the hosts with Netherton in second place on the same points total as the Ives. The game started a little scrappy at times, no doubt due to the fact that neither team wanted to concede an early goal that would put them under pressure. St Ives had a couple of half chances midway through the first half when Georgia Stancombe and Tierney Coulson respectively were put through on goal, but on both occasions the Newmarket defence had time to recover and force a rushed attempt. Newmarket had half chances of their own, but their best chance went wide of the target with a shot across goal. In truth, both defences looked solid, and with the score at 0-0 as the game reached half time, it seemed like a stalemate could be on the cards unless one of these sides could come up with a momant of magic.

St Ives came out for the second half with a renewed energy and it was Katie Stancombe who came up with that moment of magic on 46 minutes, driving at the full back before shifting the ball onto her weaker left foot and firing an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box straight into the top corner of the goal. A fantastic goal that now gave the Ives something to defend. And defend was exactly what they had to do! Newmarket pressed forwards in numbers in search of the equaliser, but the Ives continued to defend superbly well. The first chance for the hosts came from a corner that almost found the player at the far post and narrowly bounced wide, and this was followed by another testing corner and two outstanding saves by Kira Markwell who got fingertips to keep out driving goal bound shots from the home side. As Newmarket continued to push forward and bombard the visiting defence, gaps began to open up at the other end. In injury time, the Ives finally secured the three points when substitute Connie Liddiard flicked the ball on for Hannah Seymour-Shove to beat the keeper to the bouncing ball before firing into the empty net. A hard fought win on the road for St Ives, and one where Newmarket can justifiably feel they did enough to take at least a point. Every player worked tirelessly for the team to see St Ives claim the win, but Player of the Match went to Kira Markwell for her outstanding saves, and Katie Stancombe for her wonder goal that set up this important win.

The U13’s were 2-0 winners at Littleport in the Cambs & District U13A division.

Manager Jay Annis has provided the below match report –

We started really fast today to try and catch Littleport cold but nothing materialized, five or six real chances to put the ball in the back of the net in the first ten minutes. So Littleport started  slowly retreating towards their box giving us more time to pick a pass.

Littleport  were defending  like lions and had a few chances on the break, but finally from play from the back we managed to get Gino in behind to score in the 34 minute. Thankfully half time came and we could re-organise and focus on what we could do in the second half. Again Littleport had everyone behind the ball and making it very hard for us to get the second that would kill the game. We carried on threading the ball through and making chances with no end product. And you could sense that Littleport  might get something on the break.

But with a minute to go the ball was threaded through to Harry who shot hit the keeper for it to rebound and Gino to stick the ball in the net.

This was a difficult game the boys had to be patient to today and had to stay  focused in their job role a great performance by the team and more pleasing having our goalkeeper (Luis) back after four weeks and a clean sheet made the result more pleasing. Also to Harvey D back in the squad after being away with illness gave us another dimension to the team .

Goal scorer – Gino Giove 2

Man of the match  – Luke Dunn. Great work rate and determination to help the team.

Match Report – St Ives Town Ladies 3 March Town Ladies 0

St Ives Town Ladies 3 March Town Ladies 0

Cambridgeshire Womens Premiership Division – 28 January 18

St Ives Town Ladies faced March Town Ladies in much better conditions that the previous week on the 3G pitch, thus avoiding another potential postponement through waterlogging. Ives knew this would be a stern test, March having showed excellent form in games against Newmarket Town and Netherton in recent weeks, and this proved to be the case. The visitors were well organised and disciplined, and breaking through proved difficult for the hosts. After prolonged periods of Ives giving away possession, and then winning it back, a free kick was awarded on the edge of the box for a foul on Georgia Stancombe. Hannah Seymour-Shove stepped up and hit an unstoppable shot which March keeper Tori Sharpe could only get fingertips to. Despite conceding a goal, March kept their composure and frustrated Ives with their disciplined defending, in fact Ives did not trouble Sharpe for the remainder of the first half.

In the second half, and with the stiff breeze in their faces, Ives began to finally get back to their passing game and began to trouble the hosts goal more frequently. Sasha Smith had a chance to double the score with a lofted shot from outside the box, but her shot unluckily hit the far post and rebounded out. Ives finally doubled their lead when Georgia Stancombe ran onto a defence splitting pass and expertly placed her shot past Sharpe to make it 2-0. March continued to defend well, while still getting forward to put St Ives under pressure. However they found the Ives defence, and in particular Ellie Brown, in fine form as the hosts repelled the attacks one by one. Ives gave a debut in the final minutes to young Development team goalkeeper Sophie Marjoram as they continued their policy of developing the youth players from the town. The Ives put some gloss on the score line with a last minute goal, Tierney Coulson following up an initial shot and ensuring the ball was forced home to make the final score 3-0 to St Ives. March Town Ladies certainly have the look of a team rapidly improving, and will no doubt be winning plenty more games this season. Ives player of the match was Ellie Brown for her composed and commanding performance at centre half.

Ladies Manager Darren Marjoram had the following to say after the game

A good second half for the Ladies and a 3-0 win against a very good March side today. A good game to watch. Fantastic free kick from Hannah Seymour-Shove to open the scoring, with Georgia Stancombe and Tierney Coulson adding second half goals.

The second half was a good display of passing from all the Ladies, but none more so than from player of the match Ellie Brown – a truly amazing performance from a 16 year old. So much composure, and didn’t put a foot wrong all game.

Cambridgeshire FA Invitation Cup – 1st Round – 21 Jan 18

Despite the snow on Sunday, St Ives Town Ladies entertained Cambridge Rangers in the 1st round of the Cambs Invitation Cup. The match took place on the 3G pitch, but even then it only went ahead after the pitch markings were cleared by Development team manager Lisa Trigg and a few other willing helpers leading up to kick off. As expected, the snow created a difficult surface on which to play football,  and so inevitably both sides lost possession frequently causing the game to become a bit disjointed. Ives took the lead when Georgia Stancombe took a pass in her stride and confidently finished past the Rangers keeper. Ives had further chances to add to their tally, the best one being when Sasha Smith found herself 1v1 with the visiting keeper, but failed to hit the target. Ives were punished just after the half hour mark when Cambridge worked the ball well down the Ives left, their striker beating the defence and placing a perfectly angled shot that beat Kira Markwell in the home goal and found the far bottom corner. Ives continued to try to find a way through the Cambridge Rangers back line, but were unable to find any further goals before the break.

The teams emerged for the second half with temperatures still close to freezing, but St Ives started quickly and soon had the visitors pinned back in their own half. After several chances were either saved by the excellent visiting keeper, or were put narrowly wide, Ives finally took the lead through skipper Amy Seymour-Shove who tucked the ball away at the far post when Cambridge Rangers failed to clear their lines. With Saints now firmly in control, it seemed only a matter of time until the next goal came. sure enough, the hard working Hannah Seymour-Shove got the goal her efforts deserved when she volleyed in a cross at the back post. Megan Stow was involved in almost everything in midfield, and was unfortunate to see her goal shortly after ruled out for offside. However the best goal of the game came 10 minutes from the end when Stephanie Ransome sprinted forward from full back to hit an unstoppable shot from 20 yards which flew into the top corner to make the score 4-1.

A game that was a little short on quality at times, mainly due to the difficult playing conditions, but certainly a good competitive game when many others were postponed due to the weather. Player of the Match was Megan Stow for her fantastic performance in midfield to set up the victory.
