Non League Day brought the fans flocking to Clarence Park and St Albans City paid them back with a 2-0 win over Bath City that sent them second in the Vanarama National League South.
With no football in the top two divisions in England, a crowd of 1,510 saw goals from Rhys Murrell-Williamson and Charlie Walker give City a deserving win.
The first goal didn’t arrive though until the stroke of half-time when Zane Banton laid in the winger after excellent build-up play.
Prior to that Shaun Lucien sent in a couple of dangerous free-kicks and Solomon Sambou had an effort blocked.
Bath were brighter as the second half got underway and had chances but so too did Saints when Walker put a good chance wide.
He made amends though shortly after when he was set-up by Lucien.
From then on there was only going to be one winner and St Albans closed the game out superbly.
