YORK City are hoping to make two more senior additions to their squad this week after youth-team Harry Thompson signed his first professional contract.

Thompson agreed terms on a six-month deal, with fellow former second-year scholars Flynn McNaughton and Josh Rogerson expected to follow suit.

City chief Martin Gray is now hoping to conclude transfer negotiations with two summer targets, following the triple swoop for Gateshead trio Russell Penn, Jordan Burrow and Wes York last week.

He said: “We’re hoping to get a couple more new signings over the line this week.”

On Thompson’s retention, Gray added: “He’s a box-to-box midfielder, who is quite tenacious and he’s got a goal in him.”

Thompson, 18, has graduated from the youth team, having originally joined City after being released by his home-town club Middlesbrough three years ago.

He was a regular in the reserve team during 2017/18 and scored against Middlesbrough's Under-23s at Bootham Crescent in the North Riding Senior Cup, before wearing the captain's armband against Grimsby Town’s second string last month.

"It's every lad's dream to be a professional footballer so I am really happy to sign a deal," Thompson said. "I want to show the manager what I can do and prove to him that I am capable of being in the first team."

Harrogate Town’s 3-0 play-off final victory over Brackley, meanwhile, has completed the composition of National League North for the 2018/19 season.

The beaten Northamptonshire club will join newly-promoted trio Ashton United, Altrincham and Hereford in the division, along with relegated National League pair Chester and Guiseley.

City’s other opponents next term will be Alfreton, Blyth Spartans, Boston, Bradford Park Avenue, Chorley, Curzon Ashton, Darlington, FC United of Manchester, Leamington, Kidderminster, Nuneaton, Southport, Spennymoor, Stockport and Telford.
