Jason Walker released by York City, Matty Blair poised to follow

York Press: Jason Walker, far left, and Matty  Blair Jason Walker, far left, and Matty Blair

OUT-OF-CONTRACT York City winger Matty Blair has signalled his intention to talk to other clubs and Jason Walker has been released by the Minstermen.

Blair, who will turn 24 in June and is entitled to a free transfer under the Bosman ruling, has expressed his desire to look around elsewhere following discussions on his future with City chief Nigel Worthington.

The Minstermen boss also revealed that the club’s 2011/12 top scorer turned down improved terms to stay at Bootham Crescent on more than one occasion during the season just ended.

Blair scored 20 goals and lifted The Press Player of the Year award during City’s double-winning Wembley campaign.

But Blair has hit the target only seven times since and lost his place in the side under Worthington before starting the last three games of the season.

Former Northern Ireland boss Worthington added that the Minstermen would still be open to negotiating new terms with Blair if he does not find alternative employers and the club have not found a suitable replacement for him in the meantime.

On Blair’s situation, Worthington said: “I spoke to him yesterday and he told me there’s been quite a bit of interest in him and he wants to keep his options open.

“The football club have offered him two or three contracts over the course of the season and he refused them so I have said to him if he wants to speak to other people and, for whatever reason, nothing materialises, then he can come back and speak to ourselves.

“I have to respect that he wants to keep his options open although, as much as I would like him to stay, the club won’t wait on any individual.

“The club will have business to do and, if the situation arises, where there is a player to be acquired in that position then business needs to be done because you can’t hang around.”

Walker, 29, failed to score in his last 13 outings for City and finished the season with nine goals, having netted 18 times during the previous campaign, which was blighted by injury.

On his departure, Worthington added: “Jason has been released by the club and he’s free now to go wherever he wishes with our best wishes.”

Correct decision for me, we have to be more ruthless this time round and he just never looked a league level player.

I think it's the right decision, but massive respect to the fella for giving it his all, keeping us in the League, knowing all the time that he wasn't going to enjoy next season with us. We'll never forget the overhead kick Jason either!

he wasnt a bad player, just didnt suit our style under worthington, but if he was played with a big target man upfront, i think he would have grabbed more goals and being our version of michael Owen.

still i thought he would have been ok as a backup tho

Thing is though we don't want too many back up players. Last seasons squad got far too bloated with players not quite good enough. Smaller squad and better quality is the way to go. And in guessing he will also have been in a big wedge.

On a positive note,I can't see York releasing players if next seasons manager was not in place first.
Yes JW did score one of the best goals I have seen but didn't show any passion, jogged to second balls,Yes holds up the ball quite well for a small guy,but when we needed goals he never produced the goods.

Could not agree more. He will score goals at this level feeding off a target man in 442. Worth keeping I thought as a squad player. Hope NW stays if he is getting rid of all players!

A shame for Jason. He had great holdup play and never put a foot wrong. Always gave 100% when on the pitch. Unfortunately after his injury he didn't seem to regain the spark he had. Still a top lad and i'm sure he will be picked up by another club!

Rubbish - we were told by all the fans of clubs who employed him at league level that he would not hack it and it is true. Sorry for Jason but he is not the future of our club. He was employed to score and didn't. Give him all our best but accept that it seriously didn't work out after the first dozen matches or so. I just hope that this quick action means that Nigel is staying to take us upwards.

Will find a new club easy. Hope the rumours Blairy has been released are false. He's got a lot more to offer and can't lose him on a free like so many other players we've lost! CTID

How on earth anyone can criticise JW is beyond me. Playing high balls up to a 5.8" centre forward, who is on his own, is not a system which allows him to play, still less shine. Ingham would probably have done better with that system. Had the ball ever been played on the ground then I suspect we would have seen more goals. In short York did Walker no favours - I wish him well and am sure he will thrive elsewhere, even at league level.

Decent player Jason Walker but not prolific or ruthless enough for me-if Blair has gone well he hasn't had the best of seasons this time round-both will be fondly remembered though and wish them well.

Thanks for the last two seasons Jason and good-luck and best wishes for the future. You certainly gave it your best efforts whenever I saw you play, but perhaps a different style of striker is now needed. That lovely cross/assist for Matty Blair's winner at Mansfield to get us our second trip to Wembley in a week, together with the Rooney-like overhead kick equaliser against Grimsby, will be special moments for all City fans to remember. COYR.

A popular player who played a massive part in our promotion and a nice guy who would come over and chat to the kids in the pop stand before kick off.

Attention all BSP clubs, a proven 20 striker at that level is available for free and deserves a decent contract.

I would also like to thank Jason for his efforts at the club - especially those in the Conference. The injury did him no favours and seems to lack previous confidence when he returned. He will be a great asset to another club and I wish him the best of luck in the future.

I'm oping the MB rumours are just that but fear the worst. NW must be making some of these decisions with a view to being here next year and hope that is the case. The squad was too big - too many poor aquisitions by GM - and needed trimming but lets not be too hasty and release too many before we recruit a suitable alternative!

I think JW always gave everything he had but after his injury last season he was never the same. He seemed reluctant to put his right foot through shots as witnessed in the 2 glorious chances he had in the second play off game at Mansfield. This season from game one he has beeen given an imposssible task as a lone striker up against bigger, better organised CB's. It must have been a demoralising role to play. His reent committment has been immense during his cameos, but the arrival of Cresswell fully exposed what we already knew. I hope he can find a team that will play to his strengths. good Luck and thanks for the memories Jase.
Matty has a heart as big as anybody and pace to beat any defence but his technical skills with the ball at his feet havebeen found out this season and he has been too easily bounced off the ball. But what great memories he has left us with from last season. Good luck to them both

John Still tends to field tall, muscular sides and plays a physical game,so it would be a surprise if Jason goes there.
I would assume that we will have a bigger front six next season than we did for much of this season. The handshake routine often accentuated the difference in height between the teams,especially at Plymouth,where Kerr,Potts and Paddy,standing next to Matty,Jason and Ash were dwarfed by the opposition. NW quickly addressed that with Pars, Cressie and Platt adding crucial height where it mattered.

I'll tell you what, Jason Walker might be a bit shorter than some, but my goodness he jumps higher than most - this was really in evidence in the second half at Northampton. That lad never stopped trying from that moment on. And this is from a 'poster' who was moaning about him earlier in the season!

I really do hope that definitely losing Jason and possibly losing Matty mean that Big Nige has decided to commit himself to life at Bootham Crescent for another season - otherwise why not wait for an incoming manager to make those decisions? I'll feel a lot happier when the club confirm who's going and who's staying.

But it's much worse for the players who might not know yet - last year Millsy was cruel in the way he just left players hanging not telling them for definite he'd decided not to keep them, and then last minute offers, eg to Challinor. In this respect alone Nigel seems much more respectful than Gary.

Blair on the other hand has potential pace & a great atitude certainly capable of playing at a higher level worth a transfer fee if on contract with us permission to be concerned if TRUE???

from team talk
Walker to leave Minstermen



York City striker Jason Walker has confirmed he will leave the club this summer, while Matty Blair also appears set to leave.



The 29-year-old, who joined the Minstermen in 2011, is out of contract at Bootham Crescent and will now look for a new club.



Walker scored 18 goals last season as York returned to the Football League and added a further nine this year as they secured final-day survival with a 1-0 win at Dagenham.



The striker leaves the club with a heavy heart but is relishing a new challenge.



"I've needed a change of scenery for a while now," he said. "I enjoyed my time at the club but I've known for the past few months I'd be moving on. I was not offered a new deal as such, but I think it was down to finances.



"I'm obviously pleased we stayed in the division and wish the club all the best for the future."



Walker, who was signed by Gary Mills, was impressed by the job Nigel Worthington did, but feels he did not fit into his style of play.



"Nigel Worthington obviously had a positive effect on the lads and came in with his own ideas and organised us slightly differently," he added. "But Gary Mills had a good style too, it was a sad time when he left especially bearing in mind what he did during his time at the club.



"It's been on the cards for a while and to be honest, I'm not sure that my game fits in with they way Nigel Worthington is looking to play. But I'm sure they'll do well and I'll be looking out for all their results with interest."

Matty should stay though! He won't go to Coventry, unless he wants to play for free! They can't afford to pay anyone anything (in administration, and at least £35m in debt, sad times). I hope Matty stays, good player for us, and room to improve.

Thing is though we don't want too many back up players. Last seasons squad got far too bloated with players not quite good enough. Smaller squad and better quality is the way to go. And in guessing he will also have been in a big wedge.
Spot on duffy. We need less players but with more quality.

I'm not a massive fan of the loan system but it is there if needs be in the event of injuries, suspensions etc so no need to carry squad players using up valuable wages.

Regards JW, sadly he was simply not good enough for L2 IMO. No pace and not physically strong enough to play the lone front man role. I had no issues with his commitment and work rate but the step up to L2 was too much for him.

I will be amazed if he does end up at Rotherham but good luck to him wherever he goes.

Thank you for your service Jason and you certainly had a purple patch when you first joined. It's been a tough season for you spending most of it isolated up front on your own. You will prove a good servant to another club.

If we are looking to improve as a club then these are the decisions that need to be made and this wasn't the toughest one by far. I personally believe Walkers true level is in the Conference and would be very surprised to see him join another League Two side, let alone League One! Barnet or Macclesfield would be about right I'd say.

As for Matty Blair, he may possibly move on to better things so it may not be a case of City releasing him by choice but he goes and leaves us all with memories of some memorable and timely goals. Thanks for each and every one!

I think this is probably for the best. They have both given us excellent service over the last 2 years, Blair almost single handily dragged us up from the conference.

We need stronger attacking options for next season and I'm afraid Blair and Walker have had their time at York. Good luck to both of them.

Firstly Blair was magnificent for us in the conference and getting us to promotion and winning the Trophy so he will always be fondly remembered.

I always thought he gave 100% commitment and his tracking back in games and the unselfish running he did was always appreciated.

However, whilst his undoubted workrate and great pace were strong assets he was often let down by his final ball and the fact he never seemed to have any real tricks in his locker in which to beat a man. He purely relied on his pace which was fine in the conference but like JW was much less effective against better defenders in L2.

Personally I think it's the right thing for both YCFC and the player himself to move on and I wish him all the best wherever he goes.

If we are to move onwards and upwards we need to be signing players with real Football League pedigree which if NW is in charge I am sure we will.

Could not agree more. He will score goals at this level feeding off a target man in 442. Worth keeping I thought as a squad player. Hope NW stays if he is getting rid of all players!
Like I said, I bet we see the boy in our league or the one above next season - probably bagging goals
Rubbish - we were told by all the fans of clubs who employed him at league level that he would not hack it and it is true. Sorry for Jason but he is not the future of our club. He was employed to score and didn't. Give him all our best but accept that it seriously didn't work out after the first dozen matches or so. I just hope that this quick action means that Nigel is staying to take us upwards.
Eh? He has only played Football League football with York!
