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.

Treble winners Old Wilsonians defeat to reigning champions Old Owens yesterday (25/04/15) handed the league championship to Winchmore Hill with one game to spare.
In a near repeat of last season's climax when Winchmore's defeat of Wilsonians in the season's final match handed Owens their third SAL title, the visitors, with SAL secretary Graeme Wilson in goal for his final club appearance, upset the form book to end Wilsonians' bid for an historic quadruple.
The championship is Winchmore Hill's 8th - leaving them second only to West Wickham, with 10, in the list of SAL title winners - but the first since 1984. Despite numerous close calls and several cup victories the championship has eluded Winchmore in recent seasons and this year's win will be a huge occasions for the club and manager Andy Russell.
