James Comley has been named as October’s Player of the Month.
He will be presented the award, which is sponsored by Harpenden Construction Limited, prior to this Saturday’s FA Trophy tie with Billericay by John Worby on behalf of this month’s sponsor, Climatic Ten.
Within an interchangeable squad, Comley has been a mainstay in the centre of midfield all season and his consistency was integral throughout October as City picked up vital points in the league and progressed in the FA Cup.
In the league, he skippered Saints to their biggest win of the season against Truro City, 7-3, and he was a lone bright spot in a below-par outing at Bedford Town, which ended in a 2-2 draw, but, without him, it could have been worse. And against Hemel Hempstead he marshalled the midfield in one of City’s best performances of the season. Only a late goal from former Saint Moussa Diarra kept City from a well deserved three points.
In the FA Cup, he matched Tonbridge Angel’s Southern Conference midfielders stride for stride and helped Saints to take a memorable scalp. Then, with a first round proper berth at place, Comley, taking captain duties once again, battled for 90 minutes in the centre of the pitch as City set up a tie with Mansfield Town.
He missed the game against Hitchin Town due to a hamstring injury and City fans will be hoping it was precautionary from the management because St Albans will need him to be fit if they hope to achieve their goals this year.
