Triallists shine in City victory

First published in Sport

TRIALLISTS Tom Hurst and Jai Reason caught the eye as York City Reserves beat Grimsby Town 2-1 at KitKat Crescent.

Assistant boss Eric Winstanley hailed the contribution of 20-year-old right-back Hurst and 18-year-old midfielder Reason, who both played the full 90 minutes of last night’s Central League clash.

Winstanley said: “Tom Hurst had a very, very good trial game, especially considering he hadn’t played for ten weeks. He looks quick.

“Jai Reason is still only young.

“But he blended in nicely in midfield alongside Steven Hogg.”

Hogg was making his first City appearance after recovering from thigh problems and shingles in pre-season.

Winstanley said: “We brought Hogg off after 65 minutes. It was his first game and he’s obviously not match fit.

“You can’t have the time he’s had off and then come back and pick it up straight away, but he’s got three-quarters of a game under his belt.”

The Mariners led 1-0 at half-time, but two goals from striker Adam Boyes won the game for City.

Craig Farrell played 65 minutes on the right wing.

Jai Reason was the worst player on the pitch. Has this reporter been at a different game? He was like a headless chicken, running about all over the place. Tom Hurst was outstanding though. Farrell ineffective on the right wing for last 30 mins or so but he's never gonna be a decent player unfortunately. Great to see Hoggie back hope he can be in contention to challenge for a place in the 1st team in the next few weeks.

Wasn't at the match but if he had a good game, hopefully we can sign Tom Hurst then to add competition at right back.
Good for Boyes to get another two, surely he must be considered to start first team matches now?
