St Albans City have boosted their squad by signing three players.

Queens Park Rangers right-back Michael Harriman and Peterborough United left-back Nathan Ralph, who has previously been at the club, have agreed one-month loan moves to Clarence Park. The Saints have also signed Wealdstone midfielder Chris O'Leary on a long-term deal.

St Albans City boss David Howell, who will have the trio available for Saturday's home game against Evesham United, said: “The three are what we need at the moment, in the areas we need them.

“They are bringing us a mixture of youth and experience, quality and character.”

Utility player Nathan Haisley has left the club but Howell feels he knows how to turn the side's fortunes around on the pitch.

The former Harrow Borough boss said: "I am well aware of what we need to do to turn things around, both in terms of new personnel and in instilling different attitudes into the team.

“The lads who have come on loan are here to give us breathing space while we release certain players and recruit more ready for the busy Christmas and New Year period and a move up the table.”
