Blue Square Bet
Published 5th May 2012
....Square Bet North club Histon, has been busy meeting with his players and making the tough decisions that have to be made at this time of year as contracts end and plans for the future are put into place.
The club and management staff remain committed to the continuing development of its own young players and it is therefore crucial for the club’s future plans that we keep their very promising young squad together.
It is, of course, equally important that the club doesn’t commit to a playing budget that it cannot deliver, although it is also vital to protect the club’s interests in terms of players that are under the age of 24.
Bearing in mind all of these factors, the club have confirmed the following with regard to its first-team squad:
The club has exercised one-year options on the contracts of Danny Fitzsimons, Daniel Holman, Jay Dowie and Calum Kitscha and have offered re-engagement terms to club captain Daniel Sparkes and Remy Clerima.
Zak Mills, Jim Stevenson and Lewis Taaffe remain under contract for another year, whilst Jorg Stadelmann and Grant Roberts are both out of contract but in discussions with the Club regarding next season.
Livermore and his assistant Brian Page will also be sitting down with the current third year scholars for discussions over the next couple of weeks.
Olly Cleaver and Pelayo Gomez-Pico have both been released and the club thank them both for their hard work, commitment and contribution on and off the pitch this season and wish them well in their future careers.
Discussions are ongoing with other members of the squad and further announcements will be made when appropriate. Livermore said: “I’m delighted to have been able to secure the services of many of our key players for next season and keep the majority of our young squad together for another year.
“I’m also hopeful that once the Board have finalised the budget that I’ll be able offer one or two new contracts and strengthen the squad still further.”
