Richards joins the Ives

The club are delighted to announce the signing of centre forward Marc Richards.

Marc finished last season at Yeovil Town where he scored 3 goals in 7 appearances after joining from Cambridge Utd. The experienced striker has made almost 600 league appearances over a successful career which includes three promotions.

Marc, who’s previous clubs include Northampton Town, Barnsley, Port Vale, Chesterfield, Swindon and Cambridge United is a brilliant addition to the Football Club. The signing is testament to the hard work and commitment from the management and club as a whole.

Manager Ricky Marheineke had this to say on the signing.

“As soon as I knew Marc may be an option it was a no brainer to do everything we could to make it happen. It’s a fantastic signing. Marc is not only going to lead by example in the way he plays but his experience and leadership will be a massive boost for the squad.

Myself and the staff have worked really hard to ensure we got this deal done and we can now look forward to having Marc involved and trying to kick on this season. Marc turned down more lucrative offers from a team in our league and the leagues above to join us in our quest for success. It’s great Marc has brought into our vision and what we are trying to achieve. This is a huge compliment to everyone involved with the club”

Please join me in welcoming Marc to the Club and we all wish you an enjoyable and successful spell.
