Histon-based Signify, a leading vendor of managed IT security services operating from Vision Park, is supporting its local football team by sponsoring Histon FC Youth Academy’s home kit for the 2009/2010 season.
“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to back our local football club’s Scholars,” said Dave Abraham, CEO Signify.  “It is important to us to support the local community, particularly to help bring on younger members of the club, and we are proud to have the Signify name on their shirts.” Histon Chairman Tony Roach commented “Our Academy is becoming an increasingly important part of Histon FC and gaining the support of a such a blossoming local company like Signify is indeed highly significant and much appreciated” 

Histon FC has a long history of sponsorship. John Chivers, the chairman of the major employer in Histon & Impington, the jam company Chivers, helped to found the Histon Institute in 1903, from where the football club has its origins. The Stutes were promoted as Champions of the Nationwide Conference South in 2006-07 and currently play in the Blue Square premier, it’s highest ever level. Histon’s crest features a rose, the flower representing the rose-covered field given to the people of Histon & Impington in perpetuity for sporting activities in the community by local firm Chivers.

A big 'thank you' goes to Hollyoak Veterinary Surgery in Impington for their financial and technical support. Without it this website would not be possible.

  1. Do business with these people! They’re good people!

    Signify also saved the 1st Histon Scouts (and Guides) Christmas party in December with the last minute loan of a projector for the movie.

    Thanks again, guys!
