YORK City boss Nigel Worthington has released Craig Clay and Jamal Fyfield after admitting their first-team prospects were slim.

Clay, recruited in the summer on a free transfer from Sky Bet League Two rivals Chesterfield, has recently fallen behind new signings Russell Penn and Adam Reed, as well as Lewis Montrose and Tom Platt, in the pecking order for a starting place in the Minstermen’s midfield.

Left-back Fyfield, meanwhile, has only made two League appearances all season and has drawn the curtain on a three-and-a-half year Bootham Crescent career that saw him play 96 games and score four goals.

On the pair’s departure, Worthington said: “They were part of the squad but neither of them were really getting any games and, from a footballer’s point of view, it is very important you are involved. When you are bringing players in, you sometimes have to lose some so they can get on with their careers.

“Jamal has been here three or four years and has found it hard to get in the team.

“I’m a little bit disappointed it hasn’t worked out with Craig Clay but the one thing you learn in this game, when bringing players in, is you hope to get more right than you get wrong.

“It’s not happened for him unfortunately but I wish him all the best in the future wherever he turns up.”

Fyfield’s exit leaves City without a recognised alternative to on-loan defender Ben Davies at left back, although centre-half Tom Allan has played there in the past.

On the possibility of bringing in another specialist full-back before the transfer window closes at the end of this month, Worthington added: “I will have a look at that over the next two weeks and see where we are at.”

Worthington will also take the next fortnight to decide whether carrying six centre-backs – Allan, Keith Lowe, David McGurk, John McCombe, the injured Dan Parslow and Chris Smith – on the club’s books is a workable scenario.

He said: “At the moment, with John McCombe coming in, competition for places is healthy.

“Chris Smith is coming back from injury and that gives us another man, along with Tom Allan.

“Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we will look and see how to move forward, whether that’s keeping bodies in or letting people out to get some games.”

Good luck to both of these players. Fyfield has at times played well, but he seems to have lost his way lately. Clay has not made any impression at Bootham Crescent, and to be honest he was a poor signing. But both players will benefit from a change of club and a chance to rebuild their careers. I wonder who will be next to leave?

It seems to me Jamal was plagued by inconsistency, which has resulted in today's inevitable news, but he's a long long way off "winning" a place in our worst eleven of the last 40 years.

I'm sure he'll do a decent job in the Conference for Grimsby. Good luck to him.

Not seen enough of Craig Clay to comment, but I hope he gets fixed up with a club soon that can get his season back on-track.

I'm sure he means if we were to draw up a list of York's worst XI, Fyfield wouldn't be in it.. shown glimpses of quality, especially going forward. but unfortunately just not committed or consistent enough.

Best of luck at York Reserves, oh sorry I mean Grimsby Town.

Clearly he's not saying this is the worst ever eleven. What he's saying is that he wouldn't put Fyfield in the list of worst ever eleven players to have played for City over the years.
He was a bit of a calamity on several occasions but I wish him well at Grimsby.

Fyfield had a hell of a cross on him, remember him whipping in the cross for the goal at Luton in the Trophy semi final, he is a talented player but at times looked a bit exposed when receiving the ball to his feet when in defence and looked very nervous and tentative in possession. but he was part of the double winning squad so he should be fondly remembered by YCFC fans. Good luck to him.

Not quite sure as to the reason of getting rid of Clay, surely he would be a candidate if one of the first choice midfielders got injured. From when I saw him play, he seemed calm and collective, always looking round for the best pass.
As for Fyfield, it's about time he left. Definitely not League 2 standard and even struggled for us in the Conference when he was on the pitch. Always making silly mistakes that nearly cost us games. Fortunately, age is on his side and hope he can gather composure to make him a better left back.

no surprise with Fyfield, definitely not good enough to be a league player, but that is purely my opinion. not many 'great' memories but his winner at Grimsby is most certainly at the top.
Clay just never really got going, didn't set the world alight when he played but by no means a weak link. I would have thought the addition of Reed was the end of the road as we now have Platt, Montrose, Penn and Reed all fighting for 2 positions, with people like Coulo & Carson more than capable of playing there if we got desperate. Good luck to both!

Jamal had some good games and his dinked pass to Walker helped set up Matty's winner at Mansfield posf. So thanks Jamal and good luck.

Clay never hit it off but still has more assists this season than Platt and Montrose together, so thanks for those!

Jamal plays a terrific little pass into the feet of Jason Walker after receiving the ball back from a throw-in (sidestepping a strong Mansfield challenge in the process), Walker a nice jink and a great cross onto the head of Mattie Blair(thank goodness he didn't do the same on Saturday at the Sixfields) in the 110th minute of a pulsating POSF2nd leg and we were one foot back into the Football League. What a great moment for all connected with City. Still watch the clip on YouTube and for your contribution in that match Jamal and that season - thanks v.much! Good-luck in your future career and personally, feel you would be a far better attacking midfielder than in the Back Four. COYR.

As with other departed promotion players, thanks to Jamal for his contribution in making us a league club again. At one time, he looked great in the centre of defence but just couldn't keep the form. As for Clay, a 'busy' player but too many lapses of concentration. Best of luck to both of them in their future careers.

Fyfield playing on the wing was a pleasure to watch; he can hurt teams playing out wide. Unfortunately, his wasn't really given a chance; I remember in the FA cup a few seasons ago, coming on as sub, he destroyed the Crewe defence as a rampaging winger - effectively turning the game. His pace was electric; he should have been given a proper chance to shine - as an out and out winger. He had the potential to be as good as a Pollard, Stephenson or Canham.

I think Chris Smith's days at City will be coming to an end but young Allan is certainly one for the future.I would like to see a permanent left back brought in but I suspect this will not happen until the end of the season.
Once goalkeeping cover is brought in that should be the end of the January recruiting.
With only 2 loan players ie Davies and keeper NW then has scope to bring in loan players to cover for injuries etc.
Here's hoping 2014 continues to improve and mid table security is reached sooner than later.

Once goalkeeping cover is brought in that should be the end of the January recruiting. With only 2 loan players ie Davies and keeper NW then has scope to bring in loan players to cover for injuries etc. Here's hoping 2014 continues to improve and mid table security is reached sooner than later.

The article that you linked to is very good. Would be great if someone could produce a City fanzine. I am sure that it would get lots of support.
There is a City Fanzine. You can read 'New Frontiers' on the York City South website at www.yorkcitysouth.co

.uk
New Frontiers is accessible from www.yorkcitysouth.co
.uk . All 20 odd issues are available for free download. Most recent one was published in October and featured Paul Barnes' honeymoon, Clarke Carlisle, Gary Mills retrospective plus lots more humour and more serious stuff. If you read it, buy a lottery ticket on your way into the next home game. PS Which 3 "City" personnel bought every issue of the paper copies in the 1990s? Clue? Initials, RS, DC & MH.
