Histon

Histon, who's ground the Lilywhites started to share in 2013, have despite being near neigbours only played the Lilywhites in a few league matches with Histon.

Founded in 1903 they were originally the football of the local Histon Men's Institute, hence their nickname of 'The Stutes'. They originally played on a ground close to Impington Windmill and Histon Station, which had been provided by the Chivers family, before in 1925 moving to a new ground on the New Road Recreation Ground. The ground is today known as the Glasswordl Stadium. Having started in local leagues, they later went through a period of great sucess under the management of former Cambridge City Manager, Steve Fallon, and today the main stand is named after him.

Played at the Glassworld Stadium, Cambridge City were completely dominate against a Histon team, who's ground they share. City went in front in the 10th minute when Danny Kelly beat the former City goalkeeper, Enol Ordonez, direct from a free kick after Josh Dawkin had been fouled. Three minutes later they were 2 up after Danny Kelly scored again. Former Histon player, Andrew Phillips made it three 21st before Histon were reduced to ten men after Eugene Libertucci was sent off after a two footed challenge on Callum Donnelly in the 34th minute. City failed to convert anymore chances in the first half, as Ordonez pulled off a number of fine saves for Histon. The second half saw City sit score three more goals: Andrew Phillips in the 60th, Jake Woolley in 82nd and then in the 84th minute Andrew Phillips completed his hat-trick. Jake Woolley was playing his last match for City, due to the fact he was finding the traveling distance from his home to Histon for matches and training to great. All in all, the match was clearly a case of the young Histon side not being able to cope with there more experience opponents, City's victory lifting them to 3rd in the table.
