    Yet another club who have only been punching above their weight due to the unsustainable fiscal resources of one person. They were nothing in the mid-90’s, then all of a sudden were signing the best players in the Jewson/Ridgeons League, as well as a former Manchester United player. A splash of cash, a bit of greed, some over-the-top emotions and a a massive dash of unreality has led to this, as it has with many other clubs.

    They were fine in the Eastern Counties Div 1 – that is their level. A shame, but greed and ego got the better of the club. A shame for the fans but then they were too busy lapping up the fairytale instead of asking questions about sustainability.

    You forgot Darlington. Now back with a bang, top of the Northern League and being run as a Community Interest Company. We even have a new name-Darlington 1883.

    Not to worry. The kind folks of Twitter who ‘saved’ Real Oviedo are sure to chip in to save Histon…
