Lance Key will stay on as Histon manager next season.

The Stutes dropped out of the Northern Premier League, Midlands Division after losing 2-1 to Consett AFC in a relegation play-off.

The club have moved swiftly to issue a statement giving their full support to Key, and his coaching staff Mark Critoph and Simon Day.

Histon director Josh Few said: “Lance has the full support of the board in its entirety.

“I believe that this past season is not a true or fair reflection of the capabilities that Lance has shown during his time as manager.

“This was underlined with the season starting with a depleted squad assembled in a very brief period due to the club’s appeal process pending last summer.

“With a full pre-season to prepare we all very much look forward to assisting Lance in his quest to assemble a squad that is more than capable of competing in whatever league we shall be placed in.”

Key, who has been in charge of Histon for five-and-a-half years, said: “The last year has been a very tough one but one I have learned more about myself and the team.

“Going into next season we will be more determined than ever to bring back a positive vibe to the club. The taste of relegation will now be the drive to improve our squad and we are very hopeful that we can recruit and make the tough decisions to make this club successful again.

“We are committed to the cause and are grateful that the board have kept faith with us.”
