Striker on target in win over Haverhill Borough
Ed Rolph’s prolific scoring spell at Histon continued in their 2-0 victory at Haverhill Borough in the Thurlow Nunn League, Premier Division last Saturday.
The Stutes headed into the game on the back of a six-match unbeaten run, and faced a Borough side struggling at the other end of the table.
And Haverhill were up against it after former Histon player Cameron Watson was sent off for a professional foul on Rolph after half an hour.
But it was not until the 82nd minute that Histon broke the deadlock, with Rolph heading in Lee Smith’s deep free kick.
Deep into stoppage time, Rolph broke from inside his own half, skipping past a defender before then coolly placing his shot past the Haverhill keeper.
It continued Rolph’s hot form, with seven goals in his last six games, and made it seven matches unbeaten for Histon.
They are now fifth in the table with 56 points, six adrift of third-placed Brantham Athletic but with two games in hand.
Histon are at home to Fakenham this Saturday (February 3).
The visitors are third from bottom and have only won five matches so far this campaign.
