FORMER Birmingham City and Derby County star Jonathan Hunt made his reserve bow for St Albans City on Wednesday.

Hunt played 70 minutes of the 2-0 win against Leyton at Lea Bridge Road. The experienced former Premier League player could now come into contention for a place in the squad when Saints travel to Weston-super-Mare on Saturday.

Defenders Marcel McKie and Reiss Noel also enjoyed a run out for the reserves. Striker Chris Haslam, an Oaklands College graduate, scored his fourth goal in seven reserve appearances this term and trial player Daniel Gremajner netted the second.

Highly-rated Oaklands College goalkeeper Austin Byfield kept a clean sheet. Byfield also played for the City college side earlier in the day and helped them secure a 0-0 draw at Rushden against FCV Reds. First team squad members James Archer and Hamza Twomey featured in the college side.
