Kenny Clark expressed his delight at scoring his first goal in almost four years as Blues overcame promotion-hopefuls FC Halifax Town 1-0 at Roots Hall on Saturday.

The defender finished off a nice piece of play from a corner in the 12th minute, which proved to be the difference between the two sides.

On his goal, Clark said: “I’m over the moon! It was my first goal since 2018 which is a little while back, but I’m absolutely delighted!

"We worked on set pieces in training this week and thankfully one of them came off.

"To get a clean sheet on top of that is even better, I’m delighted!

"We knew Halifax were third in the league for a reason and we knew we would be up against it.

"Working hard was the bare minimum and even after I came off the substitutes put in 100% effort and dug deep to get a fantastic result.”

The 34-year-old, who joined Blues on loan from National League rivals Dagenham & Redbridge in March, was substituted at half time after receiving a slight knock towards the end of the first half.

Clark added: “I felt a little pop in my calf towards the end of the first half but hopefully it’s nothing serious.

"Fingers crossed I’ll be OK for Tuesday, if I can play I will.

"I’m really enjoying being here, it’s been a breath of fresh air.

"Since I’ve come in the performances against the big sides have all been there, we’re slowly building in the right direction.”

Blues return to action on Tuesday evening as they welcome Boreham Wood to Roots Hall in the final midweek fixture of the season.
