CHAIRMANS WELCOME Good afternoon and welcome to today’s match against our visitors Dunkirk FC who visit us for the first time and may I extend a warm welcome to the players, officials and spectators of Dunkirk FC and hope that we all enjoy a good match. As I write these notes I will have just finished a round of interviews with prospective managers who have applied for the vacant role at the club and as you read these notes you will have already found out from social media who has been selected as the new Manager to take the club forward and re-galvanise the players and club to become even stronger. As I mentioned in my last notes, Ashby Ivanhoe FC is now on the map and we wouldn’t have a problem in attracting a lot of interest for which we did. However, for us to move forward in the manner which we want it was important to select someone who understood the ethos of the club, could adopt it and move us forward as a club and not just 1 team and I believe that we have selected the right candidates to enable us to achieve this. The mandate for the new management team is to come in and establish what we have in terms of playing staff, for which we have over 75 registered senior players, to establish a coaching team to deliver effective and enjoyable coaching sessions, to bring together the clubs management team of the Under 18’s, Midweek Floodlit Team, Reserves and the First team and deliver a one for all message that we are all here to move the club forward. They will then start to mould and establish a playing style that is consistent across all teams and a movement of players that is effectively managed and communicated. Therefore the mandate is to make us stronger and more effective this season with a view that next season will see a challenge for honours. The new management team will of course be driving the team forward to finish in the highest position possible within the league but their real success this season will come from taking what we have, improving the areas we need to and re-galvanising the players and management structure at the club. The new management team will be introduced at the Home game this Tuesday against Gedling Miners Welfare but may be at the ground today so please continue to show your fantastic support to them and the players over the remainder of the season. I would like to express my huge thanks to Sam Johnson, Royce Turville and Dan Stevenson who have stepped up to the plate over the last few games and put out a team to represent the club and I know it has been tough at times but they have proven that they have the commitment and club at heart and I thank them all along with the players that have put a shirt on during our period of transition. This weekend also sees the club lay a wreath on behalf of all the armed servicemen and women that gave their lives to better ours and feel free to join the annual memorial event this Sunday on Market Street from 10am. This is an important time to remember all those that have served us and who currently serve our Country and today’s game will start with a Minutes silence so please show your respect ahead of today’s game. All that remains is to wish our players well today and hope we all are in for a good game. Stuart Bonser Club Chairman

FIRST TEAM UPDATE Good afternoon and welcome to this afternoon’s East Midlands Counties League match against Dunkirk. This is the second time this season that we have faced today’s opponents with the reverse fixture at the end of August ending in a 3-2 victory for Dunkirk and today’s match will be another tough encounter. There has only been one first team match played since the last home fixture against Anstey Nomads a fortnight ago. Following on from the 2-2 home draw against Anstey (the match report from this match is on page 12 of this programme) the team travelled to promoted Birstall United and a close fought match ended in a narrow 1-0 defeat with Ashby missing a penalty. There are a few midweek home fixtures coming up in the next couple of weeks. This coming Tuesday (15th November) Gedling Miners Welfare are the visitors to the NFU Sports Ground and then following an away trip to Belper United attention turns to the 2nd round of the League Cup with Holwell Sports the visitors on Tuesday 22nd November. Both fixtures kick off at 7:45pm and it would be great to see your support for the team despite the winter weather setting in. Talking of winter weather if you want to keep warm at all Ivanhoe matches during the colder months then why not purchase an Ashby Ivanhoe FC scarf. Available from the clubhouse for a very reasonable £5 and also a perfect stocking filler ready for Christmas.

Re-arranged Fixtures A couple of fixtures that were postponed earlier in the season have now been re-arranged. The away trip to Greenwood Meadows has been arranged for Wednesday 14th December and last week’s scheduled match with Radford will now be played on Tuesday 20th December. Again both matches will kick off at 7:45pm. Good luck to the team today and hopefully come 4:50pm we will have achieved a positive result.

LATEST MATCH ACTION ASHBY IVANHOE

2-2

ANSTEY NOMADS

EAST MIDLANDS COUNTIES FOOTBALL LEAGUE SATURDAY 29TH OCTOBER 2016 _______________________________________________________________________________________ ASHBY IVANHOE LINE-UP: Charles Hornby, Ali Abdillahi, George Wesley, Chris Nettel, Joe Stubbs, Daniel Turnock, Ben Betteridge, Mark Muir, Danny Quinn, Dan Stevenson, Nick Sewell SUBSTITUTES USED: Kerr Horn, Sam Kirk, Royce Turville GOALS: Own Goal (24), Kerr Horn (66 ATTENDANCE: 84 _______________________________________________________________________________________ Ashby Ivanhoe and visitors Anstey Nomads had to settle for a point a piece as an entertaining match finished in a 2-2 draw. Following the resignation of the Ashby manager in midweek the squad saw a few different players but they put in tremendous effort over the 90 minutes. Ashby took the lead via an own goal midway through the first half before Anstey turned the match around just after the break to lead 2-1. Kerr Horn levelled the scores up again midway through the second half before neither team could find a winner. The first chance of the game fell to the visitors on 13 minutes when a ball over the defence found a player in on goal and with debutant goalkeeper Charles Hornby coming off his line the ball was lofted over him only for the shot to come back off the inside of the post. The opening goal of the match came in fortunate circumstances for the home side on 24 minutes when a long ball forward was headed back goalwards by a defender and the ball was out of reach of the goalkeeper and he couldn’t stop the header from finding the net. Anstey soon had a chance to level the scores when they had a similar effort to the first with the lofted effort over the keeper this time being diverted away from danger by Ali Abdillahi and then just second later a high ball into the area saw a header at goal go just wide of the post. The first action of the second half saw the visitors level the scores in the 53rd minute when the ball came to a player who from the right side of the penalty area sent a low shot across goal which found the bottom corner. Anstey quickly moved in front just four minutes later when a ball was challenged for by both a defender and striker and it was the latter who got the decisive touch and the header couldn’t be kept out by the keeper. The visitors were only in front for nine minutes and it didn’t take long for substitute Kerr Horn to make an impact as not long after coming on he was on the end of a ball which was headed on and with just the keeper to beat he placed a low shot beyond the keeper and into the bottom corner to make it 2-2. The final twenty minutes saw both teams go in search of a winner but neither could find one resulting in a share of the spoils. 12

IN OPPOSITION TODAY DUNKIRK Dunkirk FC were founded in 1946 and their nickname is “The Boatmen”. The first league they joined was the Notts Amateur League, of which they were members until 1975. They won the Premier Division in that season, the clubs first major honour. Accepted into the Notts Alliance League, they got off to a good start, eventually finishing runners up, five years later they were champions. In 1981/82, Dunkirk reached the semi-final of the Notts FA Intermediate Cup, a feat they repeated the following season. In the league they led Division One for much of the season. In 1986/87, the club finished 9th and reached the semi-final of the league losing 2-0 to John Player. The following season saw the club improve on that semi-final by winning the League Cup, leading scorer that season Mark Frettingham hitting all 3 goals in the final. At the end of the 1988/89 season, followers of the club might have been forgiven for thinking their team might never win the Notts Alliance Senior Division Title. After hitting top spot on 25th October, they led the table for 25 weeks, then dropped 6 points in as many games to finish second behind Hucknall Town by 4 points. The next season saw them runners up again, this time behind John Player by 2 points, in the Notts Senior Cup they reached Quarter-finals before going out to Eastwood Town in a penalty shootout. Dunkirk again ended as bridesmaids in 1990/91, seven points adrift of Rainworth MW who took the title in a late burst. In the League Cup they reached the final with Pelican. Dunkirk lost 2-0 after a replay drawing 2-2 in the first game. In 1991/92 they slipped to 9th in the league, but improved up to 4th the following season. They also entered the FA Vase for the first time but made a quick exit by losing at home 5-1 to Lincoln United. 12 months later they beat Nettleham 5-3 to win their match in the competition, but the best was yet to come. In 1993/94 they had a magnificent run in the FA Vase reaching the last 16 before bowing out to Tiverton Town. 1995/96 saw the boatmen make their debut in the Central Midlands League, scoring 130 goals as they finished runners up to Kilamarsh Juniors and so gained promotion to the Supreme Division. In the 1997/98 season they finished in 4th place and won the League Cup beating Clipstone Welfare 2-0 in the final at Hucknall Town. In 1998/99 season Dunkirk secured runners up spot again snatching it from Goole on the last day of the season with a 2-0 win over South Normanton. The high expectations for the 1999/2000 season never materialised with the club finishing in 6th position in the league. The 2000/01 season saw the Boatmen’s worst season in the Supreme Division finishing 10th. 2002/03 saw the Boatmen beat Sutton Town on penalties to win the Floodlit Cup and also reach the league cup final losing though 2-0 to Dinnington Town at Alfreton Towns ground. Dave Harbottle took over the reins as player/manager and quickly drafted former Dunkirk player Wayne Manners as his Assistant, in which they guided the club to 6th in the league Table. The 2004/05 season may be the greatest season in history for the Boatmen, winning the Central Midlands Supreme Division for the very first time and also reaching the Floodlit Cup and the League Cup final. They lifted the Floodlit Cup for the second time in three years with a 2-0 win against Clipstone Welfare. Unfortunately the Boatmen lost in the league Cup final, losing 1-0 in a tight game against Sandiacre Town at Alfreton Towns ground. After Dunkirk’s memorable championship season promotion was denied due to the ground not being up to the required standard for the league above. This disappointment led to many players moving on to higher placed clubs in the football pyramid which meant the “Boatmen” needed to regroup. This rebuilding period gave Dunkirk the opportunity to blood many of the clubs under 19 players into the 1st team and after a difficult season they finished in 8th position. In the 2007/08 season Dunkirk went into the campaign with an optimistic view that silverware may be returning to the club but after a poor start their league title dreams looked to have slipped away from them. Dunkirk now turned to the cup competitions and after a good run in the FA Vase where they lost narrowly to Oldbury United in the 2nd round after a replay a bit of confidence returned to the side. The 2nd half of the season saw this confidence flourish with the “Boatmen” storming up the table to grab what looked to be an impossible 4th place league finish as well as reaching the

vs Dunkirk | Saturday 12th November 2016 | www.ashbyivanhoefc.com


IN OPPOSITION TODAY league cup final at Alfreton Town’s ground where they defeated Blidworth Welfare 1-0 after extra-time. The 2008/09 season held fresh optimism for Dunkirk as they were accepted to become founder members of the East Midlands Counties Football League which is a step up in league terms for the club. This step up also has given Dunkirk the opportunity to enter the FA Cup for the first time in their history. Our 1st game in the 2008/09 season started with the FA Cup as we faced Alvechurch from the Midland Football Alliance (step 5). Alvechurch though proved to be a little too strong for us as they raced into a 4 goal half-time lead. Although we did put in a spirited 2nd half performance the game ended 4-1. In our 1st ever step 6 league campaign we started extremely well and remained unbeaten until the end of October when we crashed to a 3-0 defeat against eventual league winners Kirby Muxloe. For most of the season though we found ourselves just behind the front two but with only 12 games remaining we did top the table. This though was to be the highlight of the season and after this spell at the top we did dwindle away and had to settle for a 5th place finish. This was to be the clubs last game in the Central Midlands League and after a 13 year successful time in which they claimed 1 League Title, 2 League Cups as well as 2 Floodlit Cup trophies also claiming 3 League runners up positions and losing in 2 league cup finals they leave the Central Midlands League with many happy memories. The 2008/09 season gave Dunkirk a taste of what life was like in step 6 football and they went into the 2009/10 campaign with huge expectations that silverware would again be returning to Lenton Lane. The campaign though started with 3 defeats in their opening 6 matches but they then went on a 30 game unbeaten record which pushed them into second place in the table but with leaders Bardon Hill Sports playing 8 games more than “the Boatmen” and with an 18 point lead with 16 games remaining a huge effort from Dunkirk was needed. The expectations that the club set themselves though was met when they saw the season out with 9 straight league wins to take the East Midland Counties title by 6 points over nearest contenders and runners up Gresley FC. This gave the club the opportunity to gain promotion and they were accepted into the Midland Alliance Football League which is a step 5 league in the football pyramid which will be the clubs first time in this level of football. As well as league success the club also had good cup runs when they reached the third round of the FA Vase when they narrowly lost out in a dramatic penalty shootout against Pickering Town after a replay. They also reached the semi-finals of the Nottinghamshire Senior Cup when the crashed out against Unibond League highflyers Retford United 4-0. In the East Midland Counties League Cup “the Boatmen” who are well known for League Cup success reached the final again when they faced Gedling Town but unfortunately they returned home with runners-up medals as Gedling snatched the tie with an extra-time 2-1 victory. The 2010/11 season saw Dunkirk ply their trade in step 5 football for the first time in their history and after a very enjoyable season they claimed a creditable 8th place finish although they were only 4 points behind third position in the table. The club also enjoyed cup success as they claimed their first ever win in the FA Cup with an exciting 4-3 Extra Preliminary Round win over NCEL side Dinnington Town. They also showed their pedigree as they saw off step 4 side Grantham Town 3-2 in extra-time after a replay, before they bowed out of the competition in the 1st Qualifying round against local rivals Carlton Town again after a replay as they went down to a 2-1 home defeat that again went to extra-time. This campaign also saw “the Boatmen” reach the third round proper of the FA Vase as Northern league side Ashington made the long trip to our ground but again we just fell short as Ashington came from behind to claim a 2-1 win and reached the fourth round of the competition. Again we reached the semifinal of the Nottinghamshire Senior Cup and the draw couldn’t have been any tougher as we were paired against Conference North highflyers Eastwood Town and although we again put in a tremendous performance a last minute Eastwood strike gave them a 1-0 win as they went onto again claim the trophy. During the 2010/11 season the club were left in total shock as they were left to deal with the sudden death of their long standing Chairman Jack Riley. Jack had been an instrumental part of the club for many years as everybody at the club had to pull together which they did as they again looked to push the club forward. They also appointed a new Chairman as former Nottingham Forest favourite David Johnson took on the role. After an excellent first season in step 5 football Dunkirk had fresh optimism that they could challenge at the top of the table. The 2011/12 season though saw them find themselves in an unfamiliar position as they struggled near the lower reaches of the division, only just avoiding relegation during the last few weeks of the season finally finishing in 18th position. The reserves claimed the Central Midlands League Reserve League Cup with a 2-1 win against Radford Reserves that was played at Long Eaton United’s ground.

IN OPPOSITION TODAY The club rebuilt again during the 2012/13 season but inconsistency was their main problem throughout the season. They did however finish in a creditable 10th position winning 18 of their 42 matches losing 16 and drawing 8. The reserves side under the guidance of Mark Harbottle claimed silverware for the second season in concession as they won the Central Midlands League Reserve Supreme Division with a very young side. The 2013/14 Season was a struggle throughout and in January 2014 long term managers David Harbottle and Ian Upton decided to step away from their position and in came Leigh Grant and Kuki Morley as joint Managers. Although the club continued to struggle they did however manage avoid relegation on the final day of the season claiming a point at home against AFC Wulfrunians. After a tough start to the 2014-15 season mangers Leigh Grant and Kuki Morley resigned from their positions as joint managers. The club acted quickly and appointed former captain Nick Hawkins as manger. The clubs form continued to be poor as they languised in the bottom 3 at christmas only having 12 points on the table but a miraculous change in fortumes amd team morale occurred as for the second season running the club somehow escaped relagation on the final day of the season as they beat Shepshed Dynamo 1-0 to retain their step 5 status. The Reserve team disbanded at the end of the 2014-15 season but a new team named Dunkirk AFC was created in its place that will play in the Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division. The 2015/16 season was a disaster for the first team as throughout the season they had 4 managers in charge in a very miserable campaign. The fourth manger that arrived though was former player Paul Rawden who knew he had a big job on his hands to try and save the club from the drop but after a late flourish of wins it wasn’t enough and the club were ultimately relegated to the East Midland Counties League after finishing third from bottom. Although the first team struggled the newly formed AFC team had a splendid season as this side made up of mainly youngsters remained competitive throughout the campaign and managed to claim wins over some of the more established sides in the Nottinghamshire Senior League along the way. If we can keep hold of these players a bright future looks in store for the club.

ASHBY IVANHOE FC CLUB HISTORY Ashby Ivanhoe Football Club was founded in 1948 and play their home matches at the NFU Sports Ground, Lower Packington Road, Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire. This is the clubs new home from the beginning of the 2012/2013 season. Since being founded in 1948 up until the end of the 2011/2012 season the clubs previous home was at Hood Park also in Ashby de la Zouch. The club currently consists of four adult teams and a youth team. The first team play in the East Midlands Counties League, with the Reserves in the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division. In the 2008/2009 season the club formed a Youth Team (Under 18’s) side who play in the Leicestershire Midweek Floodlit Youth League on Wednesday nights. A Sunday team was re-introduced for the 2012/2013 season and they play in the Burton Sunday League Division Three. For 2015/2016 a third Saturday side has been formed who will play in the North Leicestershire Football League Division One. The club also has 11 junior sides ranging from Under 9’s through to Under 17’s who play in the Burton Junior Football League, Tamworth Junior Football League and the Derby City League. The junior section came after the club merged with the David Hunt Soccer School at the beginning of the 2009-2010 season. In February 2004, Ashby Ivanhoe became an FA Charter Standard football club. The club is very ambitious and has plans to progress further up the league pyramid system. The club is run by an experienced management team and enjoys the support of some very prestigious commercial partners. Ashby Ivanhoe had one of their most successful seasons in 2010/11 as they completed a league and cup double by winning the Leicestershire Senior League by nine points and also lifted the Coalville Charity Cup for the very first time after producing a superb second half comeback to beat Bardon Hill 3-2 in the final. They have also reached successive Leicestershire Senior Cup finals in 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 but had to settle for runners-up on both occasions losing 3-1, firstly to Ibstock United and then Aylestone Park. The 2013/2014 season saw the first team achieve a long-term ambition as they won promotion into the Step 6 East Midlands Counties League for the 2014/2015 season after finishing third place in the Leicestershire Senior League. It was a close title race with the top three all finishing level on points with Ashby third on goal difference. The Reserves were also promoted to the Leicestershire Senior League Division One. 2014/2015 saw Ashby compete at Step 6 of the non-league pyramid for the first time and they had a very good season and secured a top six finish in the East Midlands Counties League which featured victories against all of the sides above them. The Reserve side were involved in a tight title race and it went down to a last day decider against Lutterworth Athletic Reserves but despite the result going against them on the day they were still promoted for the second season in succession and will play at Step 7 in the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division for 2015/2016.
