Ison bags a brace and signs new Bards club contract
STRATFORD Town midfielder Lewis Ison struck twice to help his side see off previously unbeaten Mickleover 3-2 on Saturday and then pledged his future to the club after turning down the chance to play in National League North.
The 25-year-old midfielder now believes the Bards can build on their defeat of the league leaders as long as they keep repeating the fighting spirit that helped them finish last season so well.
“I was saying to some of the other lads, winning that game felt like it was last year,” he said. “I know we were down at the bottom last season but winning 18 of the last 20 was a great achievement and it felt like one of those performances.
