St Albans City's Lewis Toomey nets against Cambridge City


THREE goals in the opening two league games has shown why St Albans City boss David Howell jumped at the chance to sign striker Lewis Toomey.

Against Cambridge City on Tuesday the 21-year-old netted a penalty and a 25-yard screamer to add to his cool finish at Banbury United on Saturday.

Speaking to the Herts Advertiser after The Saints’ 3-2 triumph over Cambridge, Toomey said: “I’m very pleased, Owsy [manager David Howell] set me a good target of 20 goals at least and that’s what I’m aiming for.

“The season has started really well, I had a good start also last year, and aim to keep it going this year.”

Toomey was the club’s first signing of the summer when he joined from Southern League Premier rivals Hemel Hempstead Town.

“I’ve settled really well,” he said. “I aimed to get my summer and who I signed on for sorted straight away as I did, and you have seen it’s paying off.”

Rookie Toomey has the perfect strike partner in the experienced ex-Premier League ace Barry Hayles.

Of the partnership he added: “It’s working very well, we are both supplying each other now, it’s starting to click and will only get better as the year goes on.”
