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.
