York City chairman closing in on fresh duo signings

York Press: York City chairman Jason McGill York City chairman Jason McGill

YORK CITY chairman Jason McGill is hoping “one or two” transfers will be concluded before the weekend.

Manager Nigel Worthington has already indicated he has agreed terms with two new players and McGill, speaking after Michael Coulson put pen to paper on a two-year deal at City, said he was hopeful deals could soon be formalised.

McGill indicated that City would be targeting select players who would add immediate quality to Worthington’s team, rather than bringing in a rash of new faces.

Added the City chairman: “I don’t think we are going to have a big squad - I don’t think the manager wants that.

“Lots of teams say they are going for quality over quantity but that is what we are going to do.

“We’ll probably have 18 or 19 and supplemented with a young player or two but that will be it.

“We’ve already had long negotiations with other players that are going to add value to the football club.

“So, hopefully, we will be able to conclude one or two prior to the weekend - hopefully.”

Great to see city looking to sign players early for next season.we made the mistake of waiting too long last summer and missed out on players we should have signed that would have proved a benefit to the club.. think we need a couple of strikers in the goal poaching mold,another goalkeeper and a midfielder and we have a team that will do well this coming season.. well done mr mcgill and mr worthington..

A small, well drilled squad must be better than a larger squad with dead-wood and disaffected fringe players. I would imagine NW will be looking to bring in loan players too, as they worked extremely well for us last season (how often will you see a 'keeper like Pope playing in L2.?)

Thanks Jason do your best & you are probably well advised to keep the squad manageable not just from a cost perspective but to manage disaffected players who don't think they are getting a chance to shine does squad morale little good, I am sure NW can get suitable short term loan cover as required now he has a better grasp of League 2 & hopefully we will see a team playing more attractive football that scores & is difficult to score against. Cannot believe Constable has signed for Eastleigh are they the new Fleetwood/ Crawley?

Trying not to use ageism but Weatherstone is 34 and Jonathan Greening is 35. I would have thought the manager would be looking at younger players.

Pity its not the other Walsall winger Craig Westcarr, 17 goals last season. Seem to recall he got rave reviews here when he starred for Chesterfield at BC in 2012
