SIXTH signing snapped up, York City boss Nigel Worthington revealed more arrivals were imminent at Bootham Crescent.

Rearguard sentinel Dave Winfield has followed left-back Femi Ilesanmi, goalkeeper Jason Mooney, right-back Marvin McCoy, striker Jake Hyde and left-winger Anthony Straker into the City squad for the 2014-15 campaign, which starts on Saturday, August 9.

Asked whether the Winfield acquisition was the last of his summer wheeling and dealing, Worthington said: "No. I would like another one, maybe two."

He declined to specify what areas of the team could yet be reinforced, but he said that work was going on in the background to sanction more business so he has his desired squad in place.

"It's about getting the right balance," said Worthington.

"We've pretty much got the people that we want and those that were to go from the club have gone. Now we're building on top of the group of last year."

Worthington acknowledged that expectations within the club and its supporters had heightened after last season's drive into the League Two play-offs.

"That's part and parcel of the job," he said. "It's important to everybody to step up to the mark and to get a great honest bunch of players together.

"We will give it everything we have got. If it happens great, if it doesn't it won't be for the lack of trying."

Is anyone concerned about the lack of news on the new stadium? It is over two weeks since the deadline for the bids to be submitted passed and we have heard nothing. Are they in - if so can we have some details. If not when are they now due. I have emailed the Community Stadium website and the Council without response.

As an aside to the newstadium, i went to the Vangaurde Centre at about 2pm on Saturady, it took 35 min from Rawcliffe Bar A19 junction with very little parking left at Monks Cross, imagine what it will be like if YCFC get a crowd of 4000 or more with most people arriving by car as very little publis transport goes that way from North and west of York
