Seventh Heaven For St Albans Thrills Boss Allinson

Ian Allinson says his side took their chances and admitted East Thurrock pushed his side despite the dominant win.

St Albans scored their highest amount of goals in a league game at Clarence Park since 1994, with Sam Merson scoring four in the 7-2 victory, writes Tom Feaheny.

"Full credit to the players, we punished them when the opportunity came, but they have had chances it was a difficult game," Allinson told Club Historian David Tavener.

"We have to enjoy the victory, being back in the play-off places and the performance we have put in, but when it was 11 V 11 I thought they were the better team.

"I'm really pleased for Sam, he overcame a lot, he's had a few injuries but he looked sharp and he proved it with the goals."

"This win is important for goal difference as well and it is all about the points and the performance, so I couldn't be happier."
