Squad News – Another Promotion Hero Returns

The club are delighted to announce that centre forward Danny Watson has agreed to rejoin the club.

Manager Ricky Marheineke has acted quickly in strengthening the squad following the news that Dubi Ogbonna could be facing some time on the sidelines due to a reoccurrence of the knee problem that kept him out for six weeks of last season.

Danny is no stranger to the Ives fans following his outstanding contribution during our famous promotion season of 2015/16. Danny finished top goal scorer that season netting an impressive 19 goals including that wonderful volley against AFC Rushden & Diamonds in the last few minutes of the play off final.

Following his departure in the summer of 15/16, Danny joined Bedford Town before moving to Barton Rovers mid way through that season. His goals for Barton helped them to reach the play off final before they were beaten in that game by Farnborough.

This season Danny signed for St. Neots Town before returning to Barton Rovers.

We would like to thank Barton for their help with the transfer and subject to completion of the paperwork, Danny will be available for tomorrow evenings fixture away at Kettering Town.

Please join me in welcoming Danny back to the club and we all hope your second spell is as successful as your first.
