Ian Allinson believes that the plans for St Albans City’s new stadium will be a massive positive and help the club compete at a higher level.

The Saints boss has taken the team from a relegation dogfight when he arrived three years ago to fourth in the table this term and challenging for a place in the Vanarama National League next. But should the ambitious plans come to fruition, he believes the team itself will see an obvious benefit.

He said: “It’s got to be a positive because the club has been crying out for it for a long time. It will go a long way in bringing players to the club as well as helping secure players we’ve already got as they will see there is a plan in place.

“It will help in terms of training facilities. We currently train at Nicholas Breakspear and the University of Hertfordshire which has its difficulties in how we plan and prepare for games.

“It will allow us to reach a better standard and a better level and should help us compete with other clubs around us.”
