St Ives Town Football Club is delighted to announce that both Jonny Edwards and Jordan Williams have signed contracts until the end of the current season.
Both players are key members of the Ives squad after consistently producing impressive performances making them popular among supporters at the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road.
Edwards has been a prolific goalscorer in the first few months of the campaign, having already scored 12 goals in all competitions and is currently joint second in the top scorers for the division. He added to his tally at the weekend after netting both goals in the 2-2 draw at home to Basford United. Meanwhile, Williams has been a commanding presence at the heart of the Ives defence after joining the club from fellow PitchingIN Southern League Premier Division Central side Stratford Town in the summer.
Manager Ricky Marheineke was delighted that both players have committed for the rest of the season. “This is great news for the club. In the case of Jonny Edwards, it was well known that other clubs had been looking to get his signature and offering extra money to do so. But Jonny loves it here and it says a lot that he has chosen football over finance. Clearly, we have had discussions with him to get to a point where we can offer him revised terms and I would like to thank Chairman Gary Clarke and Director Paul Reason for their help in achieving this. It’s great that he has committed and I’m sure our fans will be thrilled as he is a real favourite on the terraces”.
On Williams he added “I am equally delighted that Jordan has signed a contract. He is a massive player for St Ives Town. His tall, commanding presence in the heart of defence and his overall ability and experience is key to us. Again, there have been approaches for him this season so I am really pleased he has decided to commit as he is a crucial member of the squad and will play a big part in what we want to achieve this season”.
Both players look set to feature in the Ives squad in their next match at home to Rushall Olympic this Saturday, 29 October. Kick-off 3:00pm.
