On Sunday 15th February St Ives Town FC made a formal request to the Huntingdonshire Football Association for our up and coming Senior Cup semi final fixture against Godmanchester Rovers FC to be postponed. This request was unfortunately declined. Therefore regrettably St Ives Town FC have no option but to withdraw from this years competition.
With competition rules stating only players registered before the original date of the postponed semi final (Saturday January 3rd) being eligible to play in the re arranged game (Wednesday February 18th), the club have suffered. With a host of new signings and players departing during the 6 week period it has taken to re arrange the game, we are unable to field a side.
Due to injuries, unavailability, suspensions, departing players and the new signings not eligable, we are not in a position to fulfil the fixture.
We congratulate Godmanchester Rovers FC on progressing to the final of the competition and wish them luck against Yaxley FC.
All at St Ives Town FC look forward to next seasons competition.
