WITH injuries at centre back thinning the Saints squad, joint manager James Gray pulled on the yellow and blue jersey for the Corby Town game on Saturday.
Darren Locke and Ben Martin were missing for the fixture leading Gray to name himself in the starting line-up after a run out for the reserves against Hayes and Yeading United on Wednesday.
Placed at the heart of the defence, Gray had a solid game alongside the consistently good Ryan Wharton. The pair cleared any danger that Corby mustered, albeit very little, and helped City keep their second clean sheet of the season.
After the Corby game, head coach Harry Wheeler admitted he would like to see Gray on the pitch more often.
“If I had my way he would be in contention for a place every week,” he told the Herts Ad.

“He is the type of character I like to have in the team; he is very vocal and he lifts everyone around him – everyone wants to impress when the manager plays.
“Whether his body will allow him to play, I don’t know but it’s nice to have the option; it gives us a nice problem.”
