Blues Eyeing Histon Pair
Friday, 22nd Feb 2013 10:00
Town are keeping an eye on Histon youngsters Nick Freeman and Matty Waters, according to reports in Cambridgeshire. Winger Freeman, 17, has spent the week on trial with Norwich City with the Stutes waiting to discover whether the Canaries want to sign him.
Freeman and striker Waters, 18, have played for the Blue Square Bet North side’s U18s this season but are already regulars in their senior squad and attracting interest from clubs much further up the pyramid.
Stutes assistant boss Brian Page told the Cambridge News that they are waiting to hear whether Norwich want to sign Freeman and loan him back to them for the rest of the season: "If he went there it would be up to them.
"If they said, ‘He can still play for you for the rest of the season’, then we’d snap their hand off, of course.”
The Blues are understood to want to take the pair on trial if the wideman doesn’t join the Canaries.
Town youngster Byron Lawrence, who made his debut for the first team at Doncaster on the final day of last season, is a former Histon youth player having joined the Blues as a schoolboy.

Here's Where Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
In my previous effort I asked the question of Mick's plans for this season, and what they might do for Town's top flight aspirations.
Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
A Lack of Spending Will Curtail Progress by Nuggets
At a time when Fulham have just spent £11m on a striker with no Premiership experience, it's a little disconcerting to see Mick McCarthy announce that the club are relying on freebies and borrowed players once again this term.
Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
