Seeby returns to City

Popular defender re-signs from Slough Town

ST ALBANS City welcomed back a familiar face last Friday when Chris Seeby ended his three-year exile by re-signing for the club from Slough Town.

The 27-year-old rose through the ranks at Clarence Park, making 190 appearances for the first XI before leaving in 2009. During that time Seeby won promotion to the Conference National and also the Herts Senior Cup as well as earning a cap for the England National Game XI.

More recently Seeby has been working in Dubai before returning to help Slough to the top of the Southern League Central Division.

“Everyone around Clarence Park speaks really highly of Chris and I am pleased to have got him back,” said City boss David Howell.

“He is another building block as we continue our bid to make it back to Conference South.”

The Saints have also added former Tonbridge midfielder Chris Henry and ex-Staines Town winger Howard Newton. All three appeared in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Bedford Town.
