The boys of ’93
DEAN KIELY - Goalkeeping ace who saved Gareth Whalley's penalty. After a move to Bury he joined Charlton. Rated among the Premiership's top shot-stoppers and World Cup international with Eire.
ANDY McMILLAN - Cultured right-back who made the second-most number of appearances in club history before leaving to join Ayr United. Has since retired from the game and works as an estate agent in York.
WAYNE HALL - The man whose left-boot ensured a permanent place in City's folklore. Trusty left-back who was one of the first names on the team-sheet. Released by City in 2001, he is now a prison officer.
NIGEL PEPPER - City's midfield enforcer, but with ample skill to boot. Joined Bradford City in 1997 followed by spells at Aberdeen and Scunthorpe. Awaiting vital knee surgery, Pep' is studying for a sports degree.
PAUL STANCLIFFE - Classy, composed defender, whose nous and guile were vital to City winnng promotion. Only member of the team still at Bootham Crescent, where he is the current head of youth development.
PAUL ATKIN - The Quiet Man' of the team, who never gained the credit he deserved. Formed a solid axis with Stancliffe as City's twin towers. Joined North Yorkshire rivals Scarborough in 1997. Is now a driving instructor.
JON McCARTHY - The thorn in Crewe's side at Wembley. Mixing talent and tenacity, he earned big-cash moves to Port Vale and Birmingham. Capped by Northern Ireland. Now looking for a club after spell with Carlisle.
GARY SWANN - His was the goal that propelled City to Wembley. He then put City ahead in the final. Non-stop grafter, who within a year of Wembley left for a variety of clubs. Now at Plymouth's academy.
PAUL BARNES - Terrace hero for his goals, the only surprise was Barnes did not net in the final. Moved to Birmingham, Burnley and Bury before this month leading Doncaster as top scorer back into the League.
IAN BLACKSTONE - The perfect foil for Barnes. Strong, determined and forceful, he would feed on scraps that came his way. Still taking the knocks in non-League football with Harrogate Town and Farsley last term.
TONY CANHAM - Late developer, but one of the biggest crowd favourites in City's modern era. Tough as teak winger with an eye for goal, he returned to his Harrogate roots after leaving the pro' game in 1995.
STEVE TUTILL - Wembley was almost his hoodoo as his handball' got Crewe back into the game. But he battled back to make more than 300 games for City. Forced to retire by injury, he is now a prison officer.
JOHN BORTHWICK - The forgotten man. Named as substitute, he did not get off the bench but he played a major role in getting City to Wembley. Left within months of the final for non-League in native north-east.
