Cambridge City can today announce a ground share agreement with Histon Football Club. The agreement, which will start as from the beginning of next season, will last for two years, with an option to extend.

The deal brings to an end the uncertainty surrounding speculation as to where the Lilywhites will be playing next season, and has been completed a week before the final league match at Milton Road when City entertain Redditch United.

Both clubs have welcomed the ground share agreement. Histon Chairman Russell Hands said “we are pleased to reach an agreement with Cambridge City. Once it became apparent that Cambridge University Press were not going to renew their current ground share arrangement with us, we began dialogue with Kevin Satchell and other representatives from City. We have already formed a strong relationship, and I believe it is in the best interests of both clubs to work and co-operate with each other so we can have a bright future”.

Meanwhile, City Chairman Kevin Satchell commented “We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Histon. Throughout the negotiations they have been very accommodating, and we have every confidence that the ground share era for Cambridge City will be successful.

Whilst we are pleased with the Histon agreement, we would like to place on record our sincere thanks to the Southern League for granting us an extension that allowed us to finalise the deal. We would also like to extend our thanks to other clubs we spoke to prior to agreeing terms with Histon, most notably Newmarket Town.

I hope our supporters will now embrace the temporary arrangement with Histon. It will be a new experience for everyone involved with Cambridge City, but it is important that all of our fans stick together during the ground share era whilst we pursue a new permanent home at the proposed site in Sawston”.
