Saturday afternoon sees Sammy Moore’s Concord Army on the road to St Albans, coming off the back of a draw against top of the table, Woking, the Beachboys will be hoping to take all three points back to Canvey Island.
Nicknamed ‘The Saints’, St Albans have a proud 110 year history especially in the Isthmian leagues, winning the Premier and Division 1 title 4 times and being runners up once, in 2005/06 they were the finalists in the Conference South play off final, unfortunately for them they were on the losing side.
‘The Saints’ go into the game after winning 2 of the last 5 games including a win against Dartford, the other being a 4-2 win over East Thurrock, 3 of St Albans goals coming in the last 3 minutes! The other 3 results have seen them gain a point at home to Eastbourne Borough, an away loss to Oxford City and a defeat to Billericay Town, where they were leading 2-0 for the majority of the game. Overall our Opponents have collected 7 points out of a possibly 15.
Having come on early in Saturdays match against Woking, Jed Smith was full of praise for his fellow team mates “From the start of the second half we had Woking on the back foot. The boys were great! We created chances to win the game but unfortunately we only came away with a point however I think everyone was happy with it.”
When asked about his performance on Saturday, Jed was pleased and had this to say “It felt great to come on 1-0 down just before half time and finish the game with a draw against top of the league”
The full back sees St Albans as a tough test but is confident they’ll be able to take something away from anyone in this league “Every team in this league is going to be difficult but if we play like we did in the first few games of the season and the second half vs Woking we can cause trouble to anybody in the league”
The full written interview will be on the website tomorrow.
