Tony Bottomley, Cents Chairman praised the team. He said: "It was great to see these boys putting into practice things that they have been taught in training. These lads are all fairly new to rugby league and they are playing in a competition against some other teams that have been playing for several years. Today it all just seemed to gel in this game. These lads are the future of St Albans Rugby League club."
The squad will be treated to pizzas all round on Friday at the clubhouse, in Colney Heath as a reward for achieving three wins on the bounce.
