York City boss Martin Foyle refuses to pay transfer fee for Gainsborough Trinity loan star Adam Smith

York Press: York City boss Martin Foyle is refusing to pay a transfer fee for Gainsborough Trinity loan star Adam Smith, right York City boss Martin Foyle is refusing to pay a transfer fee for Gainsborough Trinity loan star Adam Smith, right

YORK City manager Martin Foyle will not shell out a transfer fee for Gainsborough Trinity winger Adam Smith.

Smith impressed during a one-month loan spell with the Minstermen, scoring two goals and picking up a couple of man-of-the-match awards in his seven appearances.

City boss Foyle was ready to hand him a permanent contract at KitKat Crescent, but he is not prepared to offer money for the former Chesterfield player.

Foyle feels the Lincolnshire part-timers have reneged on a gentleman’s agreement to release Smith from his contract should a professional club become interested in his services.

The Minstermen chief also added that the club did not boast the funds to meet Trinity’s asking price in any case.

He said: “I’d desperately like to take him on until the end of the season and perhaps beyond that, but it’s up to Adam whether he can come to some agreement.

“We can’t afford to pay a transfer fee, which they are asking for. They are playing games, but we won’t go there.”

Meanwhile, City were denied the chance to play a practice match on Saturday with the KitKat Crescent pitch frozen, but Foyle’s new assistant Andy Porter has still been able to make his presence felt since the Minstermen’s last first-team outing.

Foyle said: “Andy’s got into the swing of things quickly and we are in a position now where we can’t be nice.

“We’ve got to get in amongst them and their standards have to be as high as ours, but there’s a fair bit of work to be done on the training ground.”

City reserves’ totesport.com League fixture at home to Hartlepool next Tuesday has been postponed and a new date will be announced shortly.

it would be interesting to see where the money city received for martyn woolford has gone as it was said at the time that it would be made available for new players etc, i appreciate that some of it must have gone to bring in players like russell etc (wages).I also wonder at the size of the transfer fee Gainsborough are demanding for city to baulk at it. We will now probably miss out on him alltogether as some other side will have noticed his performances and pay what gainsborough are asking.

It paints a very sad picture that, having taken Dyer and Rothery off the payroll and having received a fee (albeit unknown) for Martyn Woolford, we can't afford to buy one part-time footballer.

How bad has it got at York that they cant afford a small fee off a conference north team??? he is the best player and only who looks like doing something on the pitch, which can excite like Woolford did!! surely we can spare 5/10k from the reported 200k we got from woolford! depressing times ahead for York if this is the kind ambition the city board have got!! one depressed York fan!

I agree with these earlier comments. Smith is a quality player and should be signed even if Gainsborough have gone back on their agreement. The fee received for Wooly ( reputed to be £200,000 ) should be spent on strengthening the squad. I fear for the clubs future. I really do.

Haha - too true, Martyn1982. One wonders if there really was a 'gentlemen's agreement' between Smith and Gainsborough - if the stipulation was that should a higher club come in he could just walk away, why would they have bothered contracting him in the first place? It would mean they were never looking to make money from him, so it would have only been logical to employ him on a match-by-match basis. It would be as daft as York saying to a new signing, 'look, if you play well enough to attract the attention of a league club then who are we to look for a profit?'

I'm sick to death of us chasing fellow confernece players who can't get into their own clubs teams.
The can't get in the teams for one of two reasons they lack the quality / attitude or they are unfit/injured.
Why would we want to offer such players an opportunity, we already have ala Farrell, Russell, Rusk,

Need I say more.

Lets search for some up and coming talent in the lower leagues if we haven't got the money.

Refusal to look for better quality players even if they do command a small fee, will steer us towards conference North.

Clearly the current group of players are unable to turn fortunes around, how many more chances do they need.

I believe Smith signed for Gainsborough because he got injured in the summer, so they were slightly fortunate to have him in the first place.

Considering they are paying Luke Beckett, and have also been linked with Clare, you'd suggest Trinity aren't short of a bob or two. If Smith honestly had an agreement in place with them then City are right not to buckle, despite their desire to have the player.

At least this story has managed to bring up 'The Woolford Money' again. It's received so much attention it must be close to a seven figure sum by now.

A friend at Scunny said we got 200K but only 50K of it so far. We already blew the first 50K on Dyer (and other pointless "he's a good lad, he has a nice face, he can't play, but he has a nice face and is a good Christian) loan signings) on wages and some costs. The rest will have to mainly go towards running the club as our crowds are down due to the absolute crap sqaud we have.

Says a lot when there's zero interest in our released list of what is 80 percent of the squad, even from leagues lower than us. Even Harrogate thinks they are crap.

These players should stop acting like they are superstars in Gallery nightclub, drunk beyond reason and even, in the case of one player a while back, claiming he plays for a Premiership club to one female friend of mine, before I put them both straight. Embarassing that a) he can't even have any pride about who he actually plays for, in the same city (did he think no one would recognise him), and b) is obviously mentally deluded. Wish they could be brought down to Earth with a paycut. Contracts probably stop that, but something needs to be done to show they need to put in the effort for the 14 quid it costs to watch this pile of crap.

On the tinpot Gainsborough, if they had an agreement, they should be told to get lost over a sudden demand for a fee. We should not be blackmailed.

Dave - the article mention that York don't boast the funds for Smith, with Foyle saying "We can’t afford to pay a transfer fee". Assuming this isn't a lie, it probably answers your question. But an assumption in the world of York City is about as much use as, in the words of Rowan Atkinson, a one legged man at an arse kicking contest. As for your earlier comment, Adam Smith is an up and coming talent in the lower leagues and he was ever-present in the Gainsborough squad in the months before joining us. But you're certainly right about the need for better quality than what is out there right now - it's as worrying a time as I can remember at the Crescent.

Foyle needs to strengthen centre midfield asap. The Smith thing is just a waiting game since he clearly wants to come and we want him. Its not that Gainsborough have had him very long but it looks like they are being bank-rolled by their owner so they can afford to play these silly little games.

Alan - Yes all very confusing though, one minute we hear funds are available and the next minute we don't have funds.
We can only assume that Gainsborough are looking for a small fee say £10,000 or £20,000 do we not have that given the sale of Woolford.
What I'm alluding to is can the club tell us exactly what has happened to this cash.
If is has been used to cover debts then the club need to tell us and we will certainly be more understanding.

good afternoon to all york supporters.
all the speculation of how much money we recieved for martin woolford is accurate £200.000 of which £50.000 is paid immediatley then the rest once he has played so many games!
this next part is fact-i spoke to jason mcgill before the torquay home game,expressing at the time of my concerns over mr walker!!.then i asked him why we had`nt spent any of the woolford money to bring in some badly needed fresh faces to the club?
he replied by saying "the biggest part of the woolford money will be used to pay off the football league loan!"
he then said there will be money available in january for players,he hinted on one player which is believed to be daryl clare and the other he named as andrew burgess of rushden.
i think all we want as york supporters is to be told the facts/truth instead of being left in the dark all the time.
my personal opinion is we need another keeper as ingham is proned to mistakes.
we also could do with a better left back than robinson and mcwilliams.
we need a neil bishop or steve bowey in the middle of the park.
russell will prove to be a usefull winger if he is played on the same wing week in week out.
smith would be a good signing if we can lure him to york "he must play on the right wing".
get rid of mcbreen,farrell and the lazy sodje!!.adam boyes is the future but bring him in at the right times!!.
richard brodie is a goal scorer (fact) a daryl clare type player would compliment richard really well and visa versa!!.
also a striker from the conference north would be good buisness ie novak of gateshead or daly of southport.
if you bring decent players in playing good attacking football the crowds will come back therefor more money coming into the club.

At last!
Among all the usual nonsense, a couple of people talking sense about the "Woolford money".

As two other posters have said, the idea we have £200k in cash all of a sudden is nonsense.
Modern football fees are entirely conditional, with a small fraction up front, some over instalments, and the rest reliant on appearances, goals, promotion and the sell-on.

The FF loan wasn't sorted out as quickly as expected, so we'll have had to make 6 months of payments there.
Money was used on Hirst, Rothery and Dyer (who will not have been cheap).


Also, Smith's "Gentleman's Agreement" is a verbal contract, and could be open to interpretation. Gainsborough may see it only as applicable in the case of a league club.
Or they may have said "We won't stand in your way" meaning "We'll only ask a small fee" as opposed to "We'll let you go for nowt".

Nobody knows how much they are asking, it could be they are asking something ludicrous.

May gut feeling on Smith is, this is all about brinksmanship. By the end of the month, he'll be at York on a permanent basis when Gainsborough realise they've an unhappy player who wants out.
