ST IVES II took the lead through a Paul Swannell strike against a Cambridge II side they had beaten away from home before the festive break, before falling away to a 3-1 defeat.

ST IVES III took a well-deserved 2-1 win against Market Deeping. Ives fell behind on eight minutes to a soft goal but levelled before the break thanks to good work by Mark Cox and Neil Tuffin, before Cox bagging the goal.
