THEY were in the Eastern Counties League eight years ago playing the likes of Woodbridge, Lowestoft and Felixstowe, but today Histon beat Leeds United 1-0 in the FA Cup second round.

Matthew Langston scored the only goal of the game in the 39th minute at a wet and wild Glassworld Stadium when he headed in Gareth Gwillim's cross.

Histon dominated the first half and could have gone into the break further ahead, but they had to withstand a barrage of pressure in the second half.
