Levi Mackin means to impress for York City

YORK City will see an improved Levi Mackin next season according to manager Martin Foyle.

Midfielder Mackin, 23, was one of the Minstermen’s most reliable performers during the run-in to the Blue Square Premier campaign.

He made 21 appearances for City after arriving on loan from Wrexham at the end of January. Foyle did not hesitate to offer him a contract when hearing of Mackin’s release from Wrexham.

But, despite being pleased with Mackin’s form last season, the City boss believes his performances will be even better during 2009/10 as he benefits from having a permanent base.

Foyle said: “Levi was fantastic for us and came on in leaps and bounds. He was one of our most consistent players, but I know there’s more to come from him and we will see that when he moves into a proper house up here rather than the bed and breakfast he was living in last season.”

Mackin has joined City after six years with Wrexham, where he made 67 first-team appearances.

Mackin will do well for us without being a star.

What sell on clause did we have for Woolford, if any? Rumours going around that he is in for a move after his star performance at the weekend. Boro and Sheff Utd touted.

Can't see a player of his loyalty leaving to clubs within the same division as his own team, especially only after one season. Perhaps this time next year, should Scunny not have kicked on.

Is this the same Levi that is a 7/10 player and nothing special?

Sounds like he is first choice...

If all our team could be 7/10 all season, I'd be absolutely delighted.

7/10 isn't "nothing special", it's consistently "good".

OLD - HEAD says...

I saw most of Levi Mackins twenty one appearances for York City last season, and in some of those games he played quite well, but I honestly do not remember too many 7/10 performances. However if Martin Foyle says "Levi was fantastic for us and came on in leaps and bounds", who am I to argue, I must have been watching someone else. Levi Mackin is a York City player now, so I will look forward to seeing him improve. But I sincerely hope that Mr Foyle is able to recruit some stronger midfield players, so that Levi does not become the automatic choice, that he was last season.
