Here’s all the latest news from the club
The club can confirm that Charlie Johnson has left the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road and has joined Royston Town. We would like to thank Charlie for his efforts whilst he was part of the first team squad and wish him all the very best at his new club.
Also leaving is Peter Abimbola. Peter has been with the Ives on loan from Northampton Town in recent weeks and has been recalled by the Cobblers. On his first game back, he came on as a substitute in their game with Derby County. We wish Peter all the best for the future.
