St Albans City have signed former Peterborough United centre-half James Sage.


Ian Allinson has snapped up a former Peterborough United youth after impressing in three pre-season games as a trialist.

James Sage is a centre-half who joined the Posh during Darren Ferguson’s reign at London Road.

The defender has also played for Kettering Town, Banbury United and Arlesey Town.

He featured in the City’s games against Luton Town and Leyton Orient before starting Thursday’s 4-0 win away to Wingate & Finchley.

There he featured in a back three alongside Harold Joseph and Tarik Moore-Azille.

A solid and commanding figure he appeared quite quick too, regularly snuffing out the speed of Wingate’s Reece Beckles-Richards, another man who spent time on trial at Clarence Park this summer.

He will go straight into the squad for Saints’ Herts Charity Cup match against Hertford Town tonight.
