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.

A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
