Humphreys comes in from the cold to boost Puritans
Missing the suspended Darren Pond and unavailable Jack Self, manager Mike Ford recalled Humphreys for Tuesday’s Evo-Stik Southern League trip to Merthyr Town and the industrious midfielder produced a polished performance.
Ford hinted Humphreys may retain his place for Saturday’s premier division clash with Royston Town at the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium and said: “Sam Humphreys was absolutely outstanding, he hadn’t played for a long time for us but it didn’t show.
“Ravi Shamsi had a decent spell for us and so Sam found himself out of the side but he’s a very good player and worked his socks off. I’d like to pick the same team again on Saturday but we’ll have to see how training goes on Thursday.”
