ROYSTON businessman Tony Roach was today named as new chairman of Histon Football Club.
Mr Roach succeeds long serving Stutes supremo Gareth Baldwin, who stepped down last week following 17 years at the helm of the club, who play in the Blue Square Premier League.
"Histon Football Club has established a reputation as a friendly family club during Gareth Baldwin's highly successful tenure as Chairman and the Board wish to carry this on, and with the support of the loyal fans we are committed to taking the club forward," said Mr Roach.
"We want the buzz back at the club that we had last year and with some streamlining and forward planning there is no reason we cannot achieve this."
