Non League Day brought the fans flocking to Clarence Park and St Albans City paid them back with a 2-0 win over Bath City that sent them second in the Vanarama National League South.

With no football in the top two divisions in England, a crowd of 1,510 saw goals from Rhys Murrell-Williamson and Charlie Walker give City a deserving win.

The first goal didn’t arrive though until the stroke of half-time when Zane Banton laid in the winger after excellent build-up play.

Prior to that Shaun Lucien sent in a couple of dangerous free-kicks and Solomon Sambou had an effort blocked.

Bath were brighter as the second half got underway and had chances but so too did Saints when Walker put a good chance wide.

He made amends though shortly after when he was set-up by Lucien.

From then on there was only going to be one winner and St Albans closed the game out superbly.

It will give them a lot of confidence going into next week’s FA Cup clash with rivals Boreham Wood.

That match has been selected by the BBC for live coverage online and so will kick off at 12.30pm.
