Histon snap up midfielder Simpson


Histon have signed finally completed a deal for 21-year-old Cambridge City midfielder Josh Simpson.

Simpson was keen to leave City following their enforced demotion to the Southern Premier and the clubs had been in talks since July.

Histon manager Steve Fallon told the club's website: "Due to the investment in the ground it's been a tough job raising the funds to bring Josh in.

"I think we all know Josh will do very well for us."

Simpson is a product of the Cambridge City academy and made 133 starts for the club either side of a season long spell with Cambridge United in 2006.

Histon have been on the look out for a new midfielder throughout the summer, and boss Fallon was delighted to finally land his man.

"He has a fantastic attitude, is hungry to prove himself and is just the right age as we look to keep building a young hungry squad."

Cambridge City confirmed on their official website that Simpson had left Milton Road for a four figure sum with add-ons.
