Ivybridge Town are due to play Witheridge at Erme Valley Stadium tomorrow at 3pm, but Town's general manager Brian Howard had grave doubts about whether the fixture would be played.

With the forecast predicting more rain for Friday and the pitch still suffering from the effects of the previous wet weather, the most likely outcome would appear to be yet another postponed fixture, following last week's cancelled game against Launceston.

If the match does go ahead, however, Ivybridge, who will have everybody available apart from Miles Cheetham, who is on holiday, will be out for revenge.

Back in August, the Bridgers travelled to Witheridge and came away on the wrong end of a 5-0 hiding.

Howard described Witheridge as a very decent side, and would be expecting a tough battle even though they are currently lying below Town in the table.

In other news from the club, Howard was excited to announce the signing from Liskeard of nineteen-year-old former Plymouth Argyle apprentice Jordan Pearce.

Pearce, a left-sided player who is comfortable in defence or midfield, is an Ivybridge boy who has huge potential, according to Howard.

He does, however, have somewhat of a chequered disciplinary record, which Howard admitted the club were very keen on addressing.

'He has got a bit of a temper and has been sent off twice in the last six months, which is too many times', Howard said, although he sounded very confident that this was not going to prove an issue at Ivybridge.

He was very enthusiastic about adding the talents of Pearce to a growing collection of youngsters that bode well for the club's future.
