Remarkable FA Youth Cup Run Ignites Interest In Histon Players Starting With Uttridge Off To Brentford

SPOhistonoxfordHiston’s famous FA Youth Cup run this season has ignited interest from Football League clubs for some of their most prized players.

Jack Uttridge has attracted the eyes of Brentford and has penned a youth contract with the League One side, The Non-League Paper reports.

The 18-year-old defender will play out the rest of the season at Histon but will then join Brentford on a permanent basis.

Histon assistant manager Brian Page told their official club website: “This is a great opportunity for Jack and one he thoroughly deserves. He has been with us for a number of years now and I’m delighted that his hard work has paid off for him.

“It’s great for the other lads to see him get his chance at a pro club and is a real advertisement for what we are doing here with regard to developing young players.

“Brentford have agreed to send a team down to play us in pre-season and I’m talking to them about one or two other things that they could help us with so it’s a good deal for all concerned.”
