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.

Good to see these kind of stories cropping up now and again. We didnt see many of them under Keane and PJ!

Regardless of whether they amount to anything or not im glad to see the club is looking at youth of today and looking at long term ambitions. A good youth system is always something weve had but its even more important with the FFP rules coming into effect soon. It would be good to see some more Luke Hyams emerging! COYB's!

Its nice to see we're trying to find boys to bring through the ranks again! Hopefully we'll pick out a few gems for the future.

I live in Histon and have been to see them play. Matty Waters in particular is a potential star of the future. Hes been coming on as a sub and scoring goals for the first team. There is a lot of talent there. Their under 18's recently played Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup 4th round and gave a great account of themselves.

It'd be great to sign a few young players like this in the hope some of them could make it in the Championship. So much better than bring in Premier League has-beens. When Keane was at the club, his scouting seemed to be limited to a phone call to Steve Bruce at Sunderland!

The only scouting Kean ever did was to shout at young boys on boba job week..

Histon, as previously mentioned, have a great academy set up and Brian page is doing a fine job , having come thro a turbulent period at the club.
