ADAM Boyes has been offered a professional contract by York City.

Manager Colin Walker said the youth team ace, who turns 18 tomorrow, has been offered terms by the Minstermen and is currently mulling over the club’s offer.

Boyes has been on the fringes of the first team this season, as well as starring in the reserves and for Neil Redfearn’s Minstermites, and Walker is keen to further his development.

“We have just made him a contract offer and he is mulling over that as we speak,” Walker said.

Boyes played the last 27 minutes when City exited the FA Cup at Mansfield on Tuesday night, and the Minstermen chief says he plans to ease the youngster into Blue Square Premier action.

“This league is very competitive and very strong,” Walker added. “He’s 6’2” but he’s still finding his weight. We are easing him slowly. He’s not far away and he’s going to be involved all the way now.”
