The Saturday action focussed on the first team as there was no action for either the reserves or A Team. Sadly, there was no victory for the first team as they fell to a 1-0 defeat Stratford. A reminder they are in action again tonight when they host Royston Town at the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road. Kick-off is at 7:45pm.
On Sunday there was plenty of youth matches as well as cup action for the Ladies second team. Starting with our youth teams, and the under 13’s had a day to forget as they suffered an 8-1 reverse at home to Histon. The result leaves the Ives in tenth position on 3 points from their 5 games played.
The under 14’s had an absolutely field day against Huntingdon Town as they recorded a remarkable 10-0 victory. Bailey Pammenter was the hero as he netted a hat-trick, but there was also goals for Oliver Whitehead, Angelo Siscar, Xavier Pietrzyk, Thomas Mustill, William Hollebon and a brace from James Harris. The emphatic victory moves the under 14’s to top of the table, two points clear of Needham Market.
The under 16’s visited Godmanchester Town for league action and came away with an excellent 2-0 victory. Jacob Dickson and Elliot Mendes on the scoresheet for the Ives who move up to fifth in the table.
Finally, congratulations to the Ives Ladies second team who recorded an excellent victory in a league cup fixture courtesy of a 4-1 win over Netherton United. The goals for the Ives were scored by Enya Griffiths, Kellie-Marie Dixon and two from Jaden Johnson.
