“I was due one” says Magri on first goal

Sam Magri may have saved his debut goal for his 78th appearance in a Fleet shirt but the defender was adamant one was coming. He has twice come close in recent weeks, notably at Harrogate and then at Barrow, but registered on the scoresheet finally in the first half v Boreham Wood. “It was my…
