Histon boss David Livermore is set to continue as manager after agreeing a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old arrived at the club as player-manager following the sudden departure of John Beck last August.

In the face of financial difficulties the team have struggled, finishing bottom of the Blue Square Bet Premier.

"I'll be here for the next two seasons and I'm really looking forward to the challenge ahead," Livermore told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

After finishing his first season in management with relegation, Livermore says the team have to break the cycle of defeat.

"The outlook's got to be different from day one," he said.

"We've got to come in have a different mindset next season.

"The mindset has been geared towards relegation and it's been hard to break that trend."

The Stutes were handed both a points deduction and a transfer embargo this season.

Livermore said: "These things do have an effect and did cause a bit of doom and gloom around the clubs.

"I felt an air of negativity around the place at a lot of home games this season.

"I believe now that over the next two years we can work hard to put an infrastructure together that can help this football club move forward again."
