Ivy ready for the season
Championship match analyst Ivy the Terrible is making her final preparations for the season. Although a paw pad injury temporarily curtailed her training walks, and flooding and strong currents has meant a ban on swimming in the River Avon, the Belgian Shepherd is fighting fit and full of optimism for the new season.
We are about to go off for a holiday in the Azores, returning the day before the Scunthorpe match. Ivy will be spending the period with senior match analyst Hooch the Pooch undertaking a final period of intensive work on fitness, rules of the game and club history at his canalside home in Long Itchington.
