YORK City’s new striker Jordan Burrow has insisted he will always give “110 per cent” following his arrival from Gateshead.

The 25-year-old lists work-rate at the top of his attacking assets and he is looking forward to contributing to the Minstermen’s efforts in 2018/19.

“My main attribute is I always give 110 per cent,” Burrow declared following his free transfer move. “I know that’s what fans demand and they will always get that from me.”

Burrow is also looking forward to joining forces with City attacking talisman Jon Parkin next term.

Since first making the breakthrough into senior football with Boston and Morecambe back in 2011/12, the 6ft 1in forward has outscored Parkin during one league campaign.

Burrow netted 18 times for National League outfit Halifax in 2015/16, when Parkin mustered 13 during his second season at Forest Green, but the former is uninterested in any competition with the latter for the club’s golden boot, explaining: “Everyone knows Jon Parkin.

“He’s had a brilliant career and is still banging the goals in. For me, it doesn’t matter who scores the goals.

“We just need to pull together and get where we need to be, so I’m looking forward to getting to know him and playing with him.”

With City boasting home gates that were three times bigger than the average of 852 at Gateshead in the division above last season, Burrow admitted that the club’s stature at non-League level influenced his decision to move to North Yorkshire, along with the enthusiasm manager Martin Gray demonstrated to acquire his services.

“The size of the club speaks for itself,” the Sheffield-born striker reasoned. “It’s really well-supported and everything is geared up for where we want to get to and the manager also showed a real interest in wanting to sign me.”

As a former team-mate of Russell Penn, Sean Newton, Hamza Bencherif and Simon Heslop in the past, Burrow also has high hopes of the City playing staff too.

“They are all good players and that’s another reason why I signed for the club,” he pointed out. “I don’t think we will beat around the bush.

“Everyone’s ambition is to get promoted. Nobody would sign here otherwise.”

Burrow will not be under-estimating the standard, though, having previously played for both Boston and Halifax in the league.

“I’ve played at this level a bit before and I know you play against some strong teams,” he said. “I know what the league is all about and think it’s pretty similar to the division above.”

Should Gray switch to a 4-4-2 system in 2018/19, as the manager has suggested, there would be few complaints from Burrow either.

“If you play 4-4-2, that normally means crosses into the box and that’s what forwards want, because it gives you the opportunities to score goals,” he added.
