YORK City have signed midfielder Kieran Green from National League North rivals Blyth Spartans.

The 21-year-old - who came through the youth ranks at Hartlepool - made 58 appearances in total for Blyth, scoring eight goals and helping them reach the play-offs this season.

His move to Bootham Crescent was announced on Blyth's website.

Upon turning 17, he signed a pro deal with Hartlepool but only made two substitute appearances before being sent out on loan to fellow North East outfit Gateshead. He signed there on a one-year deal but, again, spent much of his time on loan.

After two loan spells at Croft Park, manager Alun Armstrong secured fan-favourite Green on a permanent deal at the beginning of the 2018/19 season. Blyth finished term sixth but were knocked out of the play-off eliminators on penalties by Altrincham.

He was red-carded at Bootham Crescent in Blyth's 2-0 league defeat to City back in August.
