Minstermen sign utility player Alex Lawless

York City today snapped up utility player Alex Lawless.

The 26-year-old has joined from fellow Blue Square Premier outfit Forest Green Rovers, where he made more than 100 appearances.

Lawless, who is equally comfortable playing at right-back, right midfield or central midfield, started his career as a trainee with Fulham.

So this is the key piece in our midfield ?
Is he a ball winner ? good passer of the ball?

If last season is anything to go by our midfield is desperate for someone with some ability who can create opportunity for others and occasionally get in the box and score a few. Lets hope this is that man.

Another winner Imp you scallywag you.....

Guess Alex's broken leg's healing up nicely because he'll have had his medical at City now?

On the face of it, yet another good signing though. Well done Mr F. Another reason for optimism for the fickle few.

For the rest of us; BRING ON NEXT SEASON.

COME ON CITY!!!

To be fair, I did just rip the Lawless rumour off R&B. One or two on there do know what they are talking about (which is more than can generally be said for here!).

Decent squad signing in my opinion. Capable in midfield or at right-back. Don’t see him as a key player though.

Who are the other two signings who were apparently done and dusted? Anybody have any ideas? On Lawless Forest were a really strong attacking team so im guessing he could be ok.

I doubt that because the foundation of that rumour was that he can play right back - but we've signed Lawless. If we were to get Challinor however it would be a very exciting signing for us i would LOVE him to join York but only time will tell.

Forest Green fans rated him as one of their best players, so good signing for us it seems.

The welcome signing of a player who has performed consistently for Forest Green over the past two seasons. But we still need another two players at least to complete our squad. Plus of course we may also need to offload a couple.

Yup. We broke his leg I believe. As for the midfield looking silly last season, how many games did we play in which that was not the case? Not many I think.

Lawless seems to be a good signing -general concensus on their fans forum is that he is a class act who they are sorry to lose. Reckoned to have the ability to perform higher than Conference level.
