On a rather blustery May morning nearly 200 runners took part in the Sixth Impington 5K Fun Run and the new Impington 1k Fun Run for Under 7s on courses starting from Histon & Impington Recreation Ground.

Both runs were started by Steve Fallon manager of Histon Football Club taking time out from preparations for Histon FCs play off game with Torquay.

The Impington 1k was a great success with nearly fifty under sevens completing the 1000 metre course around Histon and Impington Recreation Ground.

The keenly fought 5k race around the Rec and farm treks around Chivers Farms saw local Impington runner Ashley Grimmer lead the way home followed by the Histon veteran runner Michael Scott .

Top three finishers;

  1. Ashley Grimmer in a time of 17 mins 38 seconds

  2. Michael Scott 17.47

  3. Cliff Bailey 18.09

All the various categories had good performances, and the respective winners were as follows;

Under 11 boys; Sam Mace 20.14

Under 11 girls; Pernille Nielsen 25.45

Under 15 boys; Adam Tapley 18.17

Under 15 girls ; Claire Wilson 21.05

Men Under 40; Ashley Grimmer 17.48

Women Under 40; Jo Jones 19.43

Men Vets; Michael Scott 17.47

Women Vets; Liz Porteous 24.53

Thank you to all the participants for making the event so enjoyable for all.

The Friends of Histon & Impington Recreation Ground would like to thank Caroline Chivers of Chivers Farms Ltd for the use of their farm for the course, and for Dentons Carpets for their sponsorship of the event.

Histon Cricket Colts – Season Start

Now is the time for all aspiring colts cricketers of all abilities to come along and meet with like minded Colts at Histon Cricket Club.
This year we are  running 3 colts teams-under 11′s, under-12′s and under 15′s. The under 11′s train on a Monday night at the Rec 6.15-7.30pm, the under 12′s on Tuesday night 6.15-7.30pm and the under 15′s the same time on a Wednesday. All teams have been entered into the Cambridgeshire leagues and we hope to give as many colts as possible the opportunity to play with a view to eventually filtering through to the adult sides. Many Colts will play in these sides in weekend matches alongside adult players.  We are also focusing our efforts at the grassroots level with a link up with both Histon Junior School and Impington Village College. On Mondays we have a net session at IVC immediately after school and on Tuesdays we run Kwik cricket at Histon Junior School. All nets session are overseen by qualified coaches.  In addition the Club supports the Kwik Cricket on the Rec.
Histon Cricket Club this season will be running 3 adult sides as well as the 3 colts teams. Coming into the new season all three adult sides will be hoping for promotion. The teams provide cricket for the more serious cricketer as well as those of lesser ability just entering the cricketing world. Nets are every Thursday from 6pm at the Rec.
Histon Cricket Club has recently been awarded “ClubMark” (a quality standard for administration, coaching and development of young cricketers) and is a focus club for the Cambridgeshire Cricket Board.
