Histon to rebuild squad after FA appeal is rejected
Histon are facing up to the loss of a number of players after their appeal against switching leagues was turned down.
The Stutes requested to the FA Appeal Board not to be placed in the Northern Premier League, Division One Midlands from the Isthmian League, North Division, but that was unsuccessful.
They had expressed concern at the increased financial and travelling demands on the club, and the latter point has led to a number of departures.
It had already been confirmed that Danny Gould and James Chivers were moving on to pastures new, and now Dan Brown, Simon Swinton, Phil Peachey and Buster Harradine have been added to the list.
Manager Lance Key, first-team coaches Mark Critoph and Simon Day, and physio James Smith had already committed their futures to the club.
Histon have nine players already confirmed to be back next season, and are in discussions with a number of others to finalise agreements in the near future.
They have also revealed plans for first-team trial games during July, and have posted an application to express an interest on their website.
