More quality – that is top of the shopping list for Ian Allinson after St Albans City’s season ended with another brave yet fruitless play-off chase, report The Herts Advertiser.
Saints finished their National South year with a lacklustre 4-0 loss at home to champions Torquay United, the pain of defeat sharpened by the fact that a victory would have seen them reach the post-season festivities.
And as manager Ian Allinson contemplated the entire campaign, he felt it was the extra bit of skill and know-how that was the key missing ingredient.
He said: “We’ve lacked a bit of quality in the last few weeks. Our distribution, our picking of the pass, making the right decision, doing the right things and having a picture in your head, some of our players have really struggled with that recently.
“We’ve got to think long and hard and you have to respect that there is a budget we have to work in so we can only go and get players that we feel will be better than what we already have.”
