Forward Tegana James, aged 19, made a lively contribution from the substitutes bench as he crowned a remarkable return to action following the serious head injured suffered when playing for Potters Bar Town earlier this season.
Midfielder Kwame Asamoah, aged 19, came off the bench for his St Albans City debut and looked composed on the ball in midfield while winger Alex Olcot, also 19, made his fourth substitute appearance of the season. City boss Steve Castle who also runs the Oaklands College sides said: "They have been waiting for their opportunity and I hope they will benefit from that. They are cracking lads."
