ROYSTON striker Craig Hammond is expected to sign a contract with Blue Square Premier side Histon today.

Hammond, who played for Histon four years ago as a fresh-faced youth, scored more than 80 goals for the Crows in all competitions last season but has decided to return to the Glass World Stadium to show how much he has improved in the intervening seasons.

The 6ft 3in striker is expected to complete paper work today (Monday) and looks likely to feature in Histon's Professional Cup fixture at Cambridge United tonight.

Histon have agreed an undisclosed fee for the player, and their manager Steve Fallon said: "Craig is an out-and-out goal scorer and whilst some people who don't know his career to date may raise an eyebrow I am so confident in the lad that I would say he could end up being our top scorer by May.

"We watched him half a dozen times last season and whilst some people may dismiss the fact that he scored 80 goals due to the the level he played the fact remains he scores for fun.
