Histon: Steve Fallon returns for second spell at The Stutes

Steve Fallon managed Histon to a shock FA Cup win over Leeds United in 2008.

Southern League Premier side Histon have appointed former boss Steve Fallon as their new manager.

Fallon was previously in charge of The Stutes from 1999 to 2010 and took the club from the Eastern Counties League to the National League play-offs.

The 59-year-old takes over from Brian Page, who resigned on Monday.

"I'm very, very excited about it because I spent 11 happy years there. It's a good time to go back," Fallon told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

As well as a meteoric rise up the non-league pyramid, Fallon's first spell in charge is remembered for him guiding the Stutes to the third round of the FA Cup in 2008.

Histon, who were relegated from Conference North in 2014, are 20th in the Southern League Premier, one place above the relegation zone.

"I think if you make a rise that quick, things can start to go down, but it proves that it can be done and the club is on a much better footing now."
