Rightly Lanre has been placed in exalted company. The quality of the League Two team is high and he deserves his place.
Sadly I think that he will have attracted lots of attention from other clubs so this honour will more likely as not signal his departure.

However, looking forward, I think this will add to the kudos of our club

Onwards and upwards!!

Congratulations to Lanre and Nick - both deserved selections. (Don't the media release agency know their first names?!) I felt Sarcevic was the difference between us and Fleetwood in the play-offs, sitting just behind their front two and making penetrating runs from and around the mid-field and he chips in with goals too! It would be nice if NW could bring in someone similar during his close-season shopping. COYR.

Also dont forget,big John McCombe was featured in the Football League paper's Division 2 team of the season, with utter bewilderment that Mansfield let him go. He formed 'an invincible partnership(with Keith Lowe) that didn't concede a goal from open play in 23 hours.What were the Stags thinking?'

Tommy Lee must be some keeper if he was better than Nick Pope. Could only be because Nick played for just half a season.
I thought Daniel Bentley at Southend was the next best and single-handedly, (well, apart from the ref,) cost us three points down there.

For what it is worth I think that, unless he can sign for a Championship club with a decent chance of playing first team football, Lanre's career would benefit from staying with York for at least another year. At York he has every chance in playing in a successful team for another season and enhancing his reputation even further. Moving to another Division 1 or 2 club would not necessarily be a step up particularly whilst York have NW as Manager and the Board are showing so much ambition.
Of course he may have personal reasons for moving back down to the South of England and I also appreciate that a footballers career is only short so at this level money must play a large part in his decision. He is only just 24 years old and has certainly progressed under NWs guidance.
I am sure every York City supporter hopes he stays but should he decide to leave he must go with all our thanks and best wishes.

Its an honour for Lanre to be named in the Division 2 team of the season. But obviously this will enhance his CV, and I am sure that clubs will already be ringing his agents number. Its looking more and more likely that Lanre will be be moving on.
