Manager Lance Key hopes Histon can continue to progress and earn a further promotion back to Step 3 in the coming seasons.

The former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper enjoyed success as a player with the club, as the Stutes made it all the way to challenging for promotion to the Football League over a decade ago.




After a fall through the leagues since, Key returned as manager in 2016/17 and presided over the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title win two seasons ago.

Speaking as part of an in-depth feature with this site, Key said of that league win’s importance in his overall football life:

“Yeah, it rates right up there, because you’re judged over a 46-game season. I was very fortunate to play in the English Premiership, Scottish Premiership, represent my country at non-league level, but to win a league at the end of a gruelling season is certainly right up there in my career.

“Having had probably 10/11 years of being a club that was on a downward spiral, we’re now a stabilised football club. I don’t think we’ll ever reach the dizzy heights of where they were before, but I don’t think the club would really want that either.

“Certainly we as a club at Step 4 now are always striving to be better, and I think if we can improve ourselves to one more league, Step 3, I think that would be a great achievement for the club.”
