The Ives sign defensive player Owen Wallis

The club are delighted to announce the signing of Owen Wallis.

Local lad Wallis worked his way through the youth ranks at Norwich City and becoming captain of the U23 side before being released this summer. He had a short spell at Tamworth making his debut for the Lambs at WWR on the opening day of the season before being released to join the Ives. He made his Ives debut on Saturday in the 1-1 drew against Needham Market coming on as sub in the 64th minute.

He is equally well suited to being in the centre of defence or in a defensive midfield role.

We wish Owen a happy and successful stay at the club.
