'Biggest' season of career: Almond

By Ian Appleyard | 15th August 2017

Louis Almond says this season is the 'biggest' of his playing career.

Speaking ahead of tonight's home game against Darlington (kick-off 7.45pm), Almond - who played a part in all five City goals against Bradford Park Avenue last weekend - stressed his desire to win promotion with the Minstermen.

"This is my biggest season up to now. I have done well in the past but never really kicked on," he said. "It's just never happened for me. Hopefully, this season we can kick on and get promoted."

Former Blackpool and Southport striker Almond, 25, joined the Minstermen this summer after being released by Tranmere Rovers.

He has impressed in all three competitive games for his new club so far and his performance against Bradford was described as 'immense' by manager Gary Mills.

"It's good, I like it here, I like the manager and I like the set-up," he said. "I think this club and everything they have got should be a league club. Hopefully, we will get back there."

Commenting on his newly-acquired status as 'chief assister' in the team, Almond laughed: "I have never really 'assisted' before - I have always got on the end of them! But I will take it - as long as the team is winning and we are scoring plenty of goals and playing well."
