Fake Football Scout

Cambridgeshire FA have warned all local youth football clubs that there is a gentleman posing as a football scout for Ipswich Town, attending football tournaments in the East Anglia region. Cambs FA are asking people to please be on their guard as he is apparently approaching youngsters direct at these tournaments. Ipswich Town have confirmed that this person has nothing to do with the football club. He wears an Ipswich Town top and is very convincing.

All football scouts have a code of conduct to follow and they are not allowed to approach youngsters direct.

All County Football Club Welfare Officers in the area have been alerted.

The Travellers

Many villagers are aware that some travellers have chosen to park their vehicles by the tennis courts on the village rec. The website team understand that the latest infomation is that an eviction order has been issued by the bailiff.  The website believes that this means the travellers have until Monday evening at 7pm to move off site otherwise they will be towed off on Tuesday morning.  It is also understood that the same travellers have just been evicted from Fowlmere and previously from Newton. It is also understood that the travellers are well behaved.
