Comfortably sitting in mid-table in the league. Histon, nicknamed The Stutes may only be a small club, but they have a fantastic following.
And you won’t find more passionate fans at the club than Dave and Ann. Current season ticket holders who have supported Histon for more than 20 years. They used to support Histon’s fierce rivals Cambridge United, but after they moved to the village, they began to fall in love with the club and haven’t looked back since.
They recall what it was like when they first started watching Histon. “When we first started watching Histon there were just 20 people and a dog.”
Now Histon are in the Blue Square Premier and Dave and Ann feel it has been a fantastic ride up until now. However Dave thinks it’s only a matter of time before the balloon bursts on the football club they love. He reckons that the smaller clubs can no longer compete with the bigger clubs in the league, and although he wants to see Histon become the first village side to enter the Football League, he feels it’s important for the club to hold on to where they are and become an established team in the Conference.
But for the moment Dave and Ann are going to continue to enjoy watching the club they are mad about. They travel around the country to watch their beloved team play and now are owners of a motor home so they can continue their trips around the grounds. “The best ground we’ve probably been to is Notts County and the littlest has got to be Bognor Regis.”
If there’s one last thing they’d like to add it’s “Histon is a great, friendly, family club and there’s always time for everyone who comes.” So why not pop in for a visit to the Glassworld Stadium. You might just fall in love and go back again and again.
