This Saturday, the 2nd February sees Vics take the next step on the long road to Wembley when they travel down to Histon FC for the 5th Round match in the FA Vase . Going back 22 years, Histon started a run of success which resulted them progressing from the 1st division of the Eastern Counties League all the way up to the Conference league in 2007 . However after 3 years in the Conference, which included a 3rd place finish, and a notable FA Cup win against Leeds United, the decline began as they were relegated to the Conference South, and now they find themselves back in the Eastern Counties League where they currently lie 2nd but with games in hand. They have won 15 of their 19 league games so far this season, though they lost their last match away at Woodbridge Town. Surprisingly their leading scorer is a defender, Max Yorke who has an amazing 18 goals in 29 games , though striker Ed Rolph isn't far behind with 16 goals in 25 games.
