Ibis Eagles Football Club becomes the latest name on the list of SAL clubs following a pre-season merger between Ibis and BB Eagles. The new club will play at the BB Eagles grounds at the Riverside Drive Sports Club and GSK Sports Ground in Hounslow.
Both clubs have a long history with the league dating back to the 1920s and share a financial heritage. Ibis was originally the sports club of the Prudential Insurance company while BB Eagles was formerly the Barclays Bank Sport Club.
Both have faced an uphill task to keep playing following the split with their respective parent companies but the new club is hopefully that a joint effort will bring them success in their quest to grow the club locally, not to mention bring home silverware.
We with them all the very best for the future.
