St Albans joint manager James Gray was left delighted by his side’s free-scoring performance in Saturday’s 4-0 victory over Frome Town.

Goals from Jamal Lowe, David Keenleyside – who shrugged off an glaring miss in the first half to score in the second - James Comley and John Frendo ensured the side returned to winning ways after a defeat at Hungerford a week previously.

And what was most pleasing for the manager was the sharing of the goal scoring responsibility, which has, more often than not this season, been shouldered by Frendo.

“I’ve said for a while that we’ve needed goals from different areas,” said Gray.

“After his miss in the first half, credit to [Keenleyside] who did not let his head go down. It was a measure of the boy’s confidence that he kept getting in there.”

He added: “It was also great to see Frendo score as he had been looking more like he did at the start of the season when he didn’t score for four to five games. He’s a goalscorer and he worked his socks off to get his goal.

“It was great to see the goals spread around because we can’t rely on one player.”
