And an agreement has been made for skipper Michael Richens to commit to the club for the 2023/24 season.

The 28-year-old joined St Ives in July 2021.

He originally played for then-Vanarama National League North side Kettering Town on loan in 2015, making 4 appearances before returning to Hemel Hempstead Town.

A highly rated midfielder, he has also played for Peterborough United, Farnborough, Whitehawk, Nuneaton Town, Stevenage, and Bishop`s Stortford.

He re-joined the Poppies in June 2017 and helped them to win the Southern Premier Central title in 2018/19.

Also committing to Ives for the new season is wide midfielder Tyrone Baker.

The 22-year-old moved to Westwood Road in November 2021 from Isthmian League North side Basildon United, where he had been since September 2020.

He moved to Basildon from Essex rivals Heybridge Swifts and had previously been with Isthmian Premier Division side Bowers & Pitsea`s under-23s.
