EXCLUSIVE: Former Histon supremo takes reigns at Soham

FORMER Histon boss Steve Fallon is set to take the reigns at Soham Town Rangers, less than 24 hours after Andy Furnell left the club.

Fallon, who led Histon to four promotions in 11 years, will take over from Furnell with immediate effect, making Saturday’s trip to Waltham Forest his first game at the helm.

Furnell’s departure came just hours after his side went down 4-0 to promotion-chasing Enfield at Julius Martin Lane, the player/manager’s 18th loss in 34 games in charge.

Speaking to the Ely Standard, Fallon, who left Histon in 2010, said: “The main thing is that we make sure we stay up this season. I have seen the team play a couple of times in the last few weeks and they have certainly got the players there who are capable of doing that.

“I will be meeting the players for the first time on Saturday but I will be getting in touch with all of them before then and we will go from there.

“There is a budget in place and we will have to look and see if there is anyone we feel we need to bring in, we have until the end of March to bring in players.”

Fallon also confirmed that he would be bringing in his former assistant Ian Hart to the coaching staff.
