City make triple swoop

Saints add Humbert, Newell and Galbraith

ST Albans City have bolstered their ranks ahead of Sunday’s Boxing Day clash with rivals Boreham Wood with the addition of three midfielders.

Josh Humbert moves to Clarence Park from Spartan South Midlands Premier Division side Colney Heath.

The 22-year-old has played a pivotal role in midfield for Heath over the previous two seasons with his tough tackling and high energy displays having joined the Magpies from another local side, London Colney.

Also arriving at Clarence Park is 17-year-old Peterborough United midfielder Joe Newell.

The Posh academy player has been a regular for the Cambridgeshire side in the Puma Youth Alliance League and has also appeared for the club’s reserve team.

The final addition to the squad is a familiar face with David Galbraith returning to the Clarence Park fold.
