Veteran striker Kezie Ibe is enjoying his blossoming partnership with Adam Wallace.

Ibe has seen two of his close allies, Leon Smith and Aaron Morgan, leave the club recently, to join Metropolitan Police and Kingstonian respectively

And while that came as a disappointment to the 33-year-old, he has been impressed by what he has seen from his latest strike parner.

Wallace has enjoyed a regular run in Gary McCann’s side in recent times, and Ibe has not been surprised by that.

He told the Times: “In football, people leave for different reasons.

“It was obviously disappointing to see those two go. They’re good players, but they felt it was in their best interests to leave the club, so good luck to them.

“They’ve definitely been missed in our team but we have to look forward now. Adam has come in and done very well.

“I’m enjoying playing with him. He’s a different sort of striker to what I’m used to playing with at Hendon, so it’s quite exciting times and it’ll be interesting to see how we develop as a pair.”

The duo both struck doubles as Hendon got the better of Wingate & Finchley in a seven-goal thriller in their last league outing. Wallace has four goals in his last three appearances, while Ibe has scored three in his last two outings.

McCann’s men travel to Staines Town on Saturday, with the Greens looking to extend the two-match unbeaten run they are currently on.
