THE pre-season friendly between Ivybridge Town and Bovey Tracey, due to have been played at Erme Valley on Wednesday evening (July 10), has been called off to avoid a clash with England’s Euro 2024 semi-final against the Netherlands that evening.

There are no plans to re-arrange the fixture so Ivybridge will have just one home pre-season match against South West Peninsula League side Sticker on Tuesday July 16 (7.30pm).

They do, however, have four away friendlies, including last Saturday’s (July 6) visit to Newquay where they drew 3-3. That will be followed by visits to Wendron on Saturday (July 13), Liskeard on Friday July 19 and Bodmin on Tuesday July 23.

Ivybridge begin their new campaign in the Jewson Western League with a home match against Bridgwater on Saturday July 27.
