Boss Gary Mills hails fans as York City clinch return to Football League
MANAGER Gary Mills was quick to heap praise on the Bootham Crescent faithful as York City's promotion party got under way at Wembley.
The Minstermen came from behind - they conceded a goal after only 71 seconds - to beat Luton Town 2-1 in today's Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final thanks to strikes by Ashley Chambers and Matty Blair.
It completed a remarkable Wembley double in the space of eight days, following City's FA Trophy triumph under the arch last weekend.
More importantly, it meant the Minstermen were back in the Football League after an absence of eight years.
Mills said: "I want to thank all our fans who came to support us. I know it's not been easy finding the money to come two weeks running but I'm sure those who did come do not regret that decision.
"For those that stayed at home but have come to games throughout the season, I'd like to thank and congratulate them as well."
