St Ives Town met 'robust' Waders

St Ives Town manager Ricky Marheineke had no complaints

Produced by Biggleswade Town TV

His side saw a four-match unbeaten run come to an end when beaten 1-0 at play-off contenders Biggleswade Town in the Southern League Premier Division Central yesterday.

The Bedfordshire hosts claimed the only goal four minutes into the second half to complete an identical double over Saints after also triumphing 1-0 at Westwood Road in the reverse fixture back in October.

Jake Newman failed to take two early chances for Marheineke’s men before Ben Baker and Ben Seymour-Shove – the latter making his 200th appearance for the club – were denied either side of the break.

And captain Robbie Parker then fired over in the dying moments when presented with a chance to hit a dramatic equaliser against his former club, but Marheineke was the first to admit that finding the net at that stage would have been unjust.

He said: “I don’t think we deserved anything out of the game and it would have been a smash and grab had we got a draw.

“I’m disappointed with the performance we produced on a day when we didn’t win enough of the personal battles, 50-50 tackles or second balls.

“Those things are out bread and butter and we’ve been doing them well lately while on a very good run, but we got bullied out of it in many ways by Biggleswade.”
