The Red Lion Histon

Back in the annals of time, two arrivals in the promised land, at Nth Thoresby and Grainthorpe, unfortunately missed the reign of Mr Shankley. However their formative years ensured his spirit shone on. The eventual manifestation of their early promise began to emerge at a faraway place called Histon.

Inspiration to us all, the President Maurice (Nth Thoresby) and the Chairman Neville (Grainthorpe) began to gather acolytes who were inspired to take up the cause. At an early stage the innkeeper of Histon’s premier night-spot, the Red Lion, saw the light, responded to the cause and accepted the post of Logistics Director.

Trips to Wembley against Bournemouth and Northampton in a previous century led to significant tilling of soil and seeds being sown. The need for a well drilled coherent fighting force in support of Grimsby Town Football Club based in Histon was readily taken up. The Red Lion was to be the epicentre of the new movement and many hours were spent discussing policy, potential recruits and drinking ‘grapefruit juice’.
