It was his first league appearance since joining the club on a free transfer in October.

Ibe had been without a club since leaving Turkish side Adanaspor in July 2022.

He was an unused sub for two National League fixtures in January before making his long-awaited bow this weekend.

The former Liverpool man played the final six minutes after replacing Toby Edser.

A former England under-21 international, Ibe was playing in the Premier League just four years ago.

He made 119 top flight appearances for Liverpool and Bournemouth, who signed him for £15million in 2016.

Across those matches, he scored four goals and provided 10 assists.

Ibe also had spells in the Championship with Birmingham and Derby before joining Ebbsfleet.

The Fleet are currently 22nd in the National League, one point from safety following Saturday’s draw.

A win against runaway league leaders Chesterfield next weekend could see Ibe and his side move out of the relegation zone.
