Stamford AFC have swooped in and added one the area’s most experienced coaches to the club’s first team line-up.

Brain Page, who parted company with Evo-Stik Southern Premier League side Histon last week, will join the Daniels’ boss Andrew Wilson’s management team.

Page spent five years at Histon, joining as an assistant manager to Dave Livermore when they were competing in the Conference Premier

He also oversaw the club’s scholarship programme.

In 2013 Page became the first team manager, bringing a host of talented young players through the ranks despite the club getting relegated in his first season in charge.

Scotsman Page parted company with Histon following their 5-4 defeat against Kettering Town.

A Histon statement on the club website said: “The board would like to express their thanks to Brian for everything he has done for the club over the last five years, a period of time during which he has had an enormous impact on the football club at all levels.

“His success at developing talented young players and progressing them through into the first team, and in many cases further on up into professional football, is a credit to him and his coaching ability.

“Furthermore the board would like to wish Brian every success in what will surely be a successful future within the game.”

Before turning to management Page played for Norwich City and Peterborough United as a youngster and went on to become a professional with Scunthorpe United.
