Histon boss Lance Key has more of a vested interest in the lives of certain members of his squad than most managers.

A look through the Stutes’ squad draws the eye to Evan Key, the former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper’s son.




As Lance explained, though, as part of his in-depth interview with this site, it doesn’t stop there:

“It’s more of a family affair than you know, because Lee Smith, who is our oldest player and actually played for Histon in the Conference when I was coaching there years ago, he’s my stepson. He’s been with me in my life since he was four years old, and he’s seven years older than his brother Evan.

“In that (Thurlow Nunn Premier) championship-winning season, they both had a massive part to play. Then our club captain, Max York, is my nephew, so he’s my sister’s son.

“Max that season scored 27 goals from centre-half! There’s always going to be a bigger challenge with family members, because they think they have a bigger right to say certain things to you!

“But probably also very rewarding being able to galvanise that and make it work.”
