YORK City's sudden winning streak has been hailed by the Archbishop of York with the cry: "We are York! We are York! We are York."

Dr John Sentamu, who is patron of the club, tweeted his joy today in the wake of yesterday's 2-0 victory over Leamington at Bootham Crescent - its third win on the spin, which keeps it top of the National League North table.

He tweeted: "Very proud of you Minster Men! We are York! We are York! We are York!

"Get the song out loud and clear! And stay top of the League: Composure! Pace! Attacking Football! And playing it Wide and on the Ground! With You! Sentamu."
