Injuries were the reason Ian Allinson dipped into the transfer market – bringing in former Swindon Town and Leyton Orient centre-half Jamie Sendles-White.

The St Albans City boss made the decision after Saturday’s defeat to Truro City, signing the 23-year-old on Monday morning and throwing him straight into the starting line-up against Hungerford Town a few hours later.

Allinson said: “It was when we woke up on Sunday and started to hear the reports of injuries, tenderness and stiffness from Saturday.

“We looked at it and although we had Tom Gardiner, we couldn’t bring Harold Joseph back as he’s on a 28-day loan and it’s the first one with them.

“So we put a couple of calls in and managed to get Jamie.

“And I thought he had a great debut. He was unlucky to get booked for what seemed an innocuous challenge and then he’s made a great challenge but it’s ricocheted off and their lad has stuck it in for 2-1.”
