Noble Is A Saint Again As He Returns To Clarence Park

David Noble is back at St Albans City just four months after quitting the club to take over at Wealdstone.

He has returned to Clarence Park after his Stones dream turned into a nightmare, fired after 73 days at the helm before the club went on to survive the drop after winning three times inside the final nine days.

The Saints said in late January they were “truly gutted” their manager was leaving and said he had been a “phenomenal asset” to them - before adding all parties would “remain friends”.

But the time seems right for a return with St Albans needing a new boss and he jumped at the chance to come back.

A club statement this afternoon confirmed: “We are delighted to announce that David Noble has returned to the club as Head Coach.

“David will take up his post with immediate effect and he has already started planning for the 2024/25 season. We are also really pleased to confirm that Jon Meakes will remain at the club to assist David in all first-team activities.

“The club has been working hard behind the scenes on reforming this partnership and we can’t wait for the season to start!

“Harry Wheeler will continue to provide pivotal support in a technical football director role across the club. Additional announcements about player recruitment and the first-team squad will follow.”
