This will develop the sense of confidence across the whole club and ensures that our squad will rightly have the strength in depth and competition for places.
Nigel is quietly building a formidable group of players

Welcome Marvin, you are most welcome

Good stuff. Two year deal?

On a separate note, are we due a new kit this summer or is the current one running into another season?

I see that Preston have signed a full back from Huddersfield. Apparently he can play on the left or right. Does this create a little wriggle room for a potential season-long signing to complete the development of Ben Davies, given his brilliant progress last season and the partnerships with our central defenders?
I watch and wait (with optimism in my heart)

It would be good for Davies. He is certain to start every game for us if fit.

Dont know much about this lad, but he had plenty of league experience with Wycombe, before being released, so he should be OK. A creative mid-field player who scores a few goals, should be the top of our shopping list now.

I wouldn't read too much into why he wasn't retained. He's ok take it from me, the lad will fit in here no problem. there was two other clubs interested in the lad one 1 Div and one 2 Div. There is a lot of good things floating around the south about York City, the whole setup is admired by players and club officials.
If we have a good season there will be a lot of players picking us as opposed to other clubs. There are a lot of dedicated people in and around York running Junior clubs in the Mitchell League doing sterling work and CFD at Roko bringing on young players 7yrs upwards.perhaps City should send their coaches out on Sunday mornings looking for candidates amongst the clubs
for them to work on for the future.

I hear what you say Bill, but having watched the 2nd Division play off, I cannot remember a game of football as bad. The quality was dismal, awful, Fleetwood v Burton, at the National Stadium, what an advert for Division 2. Hence I wonder where we are going, signing a person from D2 who is released, and from a team who were not Chesterfield, one of the best who played at BC, but a very average D2 team in a very poor D2.
The FA were talking about Premier Division 'second teams', to fit in below D2, and above Conference, but I think they have placed that idea on the 'back burner', on the grounds that no Premier Division reserves can be placed below the standard of D2, and the play offs proved that, a poor display, and seen by all the top football people to be exactly that.
We need a name or two, but we haven't got any money have we? I shall keep my Manchester United season ticket for a while longer, York City are not going to be front runners if this is the quality of player we are signing.

You're welcome to your Man U season ticket mate. We have far more chance of winning something than they do. And I think you're rather confused about why the Premier Division second team idea has been rejected. It's possibly the most stupid idea ever by a Premiership obsessed FA which would have meant a slow death for all clubs below Championship level.

I agree, and how many supporters would attend an away fixture to watch there second second team, so the home teams would loose a lot of revenue.
stupid idea in my opinion.
