St Albans City joint manager James Gray is hopeful that David Keenleyside will commit to the club for the 2014/15 season.

The 23-year-old is yet to sign a deal.

Keenleyside made 10 starts and 17 appearances from the bench in a six-goal campaign last season. He looked set to cement a place in the first-team squad last year before a three-month injury lay-off derailed his season.

He came back in January but struggled to earn a regular spot and ended the season on loan at SSML Division One side Harpenden Town.

“He had a lot going on personally last year so he didn’t give himself the best opportunity,” said Gray.

“He’s a player I really like; he’s got all the ability in the world. It’s about harnessing it and getting it out in games because he’s unplayable in training.”
