Gray issues angry battle cry to beleaguered players

St Albans joint manager James Gray has challenged his players to buck their ideas up or be shipped out of Clarence Park.
Those strong words followed last Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Vanarama National League South leaders Bath City.
Frankie Artus’ spot kick was the difference between the two sides but, with the Somerset side missing a host of chances to embellish the scoreline, Gray was left “annoyed” at the full-time whistle.
Gray told the Herts Ad: “Too many players were off it and I know for a fact they’re better than what they are but if they haven’t got the stomach for a fight they’ll be moved out.
“I can assure that I will be looking to try and bring someone who has got the stomach.

“I said at the end of last season, if we get beat, we get beat fighting but we didn’t have enough fighters out there.
“They’re lacking in confidence but I won’t use that as an excuse because the boys are bigger than that.
