Who Will Save Histon Football Club?

A familiar theme of recent years has been that of the non-league football club that stretched too farm, and it seems likely that this phenomenon will claim another victim in the near future after the cancellation of Blue Square Bet North club Histons trip to Colwyn Bay last week. Yet as with so many clubs playing at this level of the game, recent ups and downs mask a considerably longer history than many will be aware of. The name of Histon Football Club may only have been in the broader public consciousness over the course of the years during which they propelled themselves from the East Counties League to the Blue Square Bet Premier, but should this club end up folding after the events of the last few days, weeks and months, it will be one hundred and eight years of history that disappears from the map.

Match Of The Past: AFC Bournemouth

Having now completed the clubs of the Premier League and the Football League Championship, we continue our series of archive matches this morning by kicking off League One with AFC Bournemouth. Our first match comes from the days when the clubs was still known as Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, and it’s a home match from the Fifth Round of the 1956/57 FA Cup against Tottenham Hotspur. The club changed its name to AFC Bournemouth in 1972, and our second match comes from ten years after this, a trip to Valley Parade to play Bradford City in May 1982, a result which saw the team promoted from the Fourth Division of the Football League. Our third match is another top of the table clash, a trip to The County Ground to play Swindon Town in April 1987. Our fourth match sees them travel to play Hull City during the 1989/90 season, and we round off with a further two away wins, against Brentford from April 1995 and against Peterborough United from January 1996.
