Billy Medlock says he has nothing to prove at National League South level and believes he can score a hatful of goals for St Albans City this season.

The 24-year-old joined the Saints from division rivals Sutton United in the summer after spending the end of last season on loan at Tonbridge Angels in the Ryman League Premier Division.

Medlock scored five in 11 for Sutton before he was sent out to Tonbridge, the club the Us signed him from, where he netted 13 in 21.

City will be hoping he can fill the void left by John Frendo, who scored 18 in all competitions in 2014/15 before joining Hemel Hempstead during the summer. The striker is confident he can.

When asked whether he feels he can score plenty of goals this season, Medlock said: “Yeah, definitely. The set up is perfect for me. If we can play [passing football] and I can feed off [Simon Thomas] and [Michael Malcolm], then hopefully we can get a good start and kick on from there.”

He added: “I wanted to stay at this level and have a full season at it and score as many as I can.”

Medlock first made a name for himself at Eastbourne Town in the Ryman League South, scoring 30-plus goals in a relegation season and earning a move to Tonbridge. His goalscoring exploits for the Angels earned him a move to Sutton in October 2014.

Having helped Tonbridge stay up last season during his loan spell, the Kent-based side were one of the clubs gunning to sign the striker during the summer. Medlock opted for the Saints, and he’s enjoying life at Clarence Park so far.

“I liked what Jimmy [Gray, joint manager] had to say when he called and asked me to join and the lads are a great bunch,” he said.

“I’m enjoying it here. It’s a nice club that is ambitious and wants to play football.”
