ONE bookmaker has priced York City inside the top half of the list of contenders to win next season's Vanarama National League title.

Odds for the 2022/23 National League champions opened this week as the division's 24 teams were confirmed, following Grimsby Town's 2-1 play-off final victory after extra time over Solihull Moors at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Following their success through the National League North play-offs, York are making their return to the fifth tier from August and Betway rank them as joint-11th favourites, at the time of writing, at 25/1.

Other bookmakers have been less kind to City's chances, with BetVictor and William Hill having them out at 50/1 and 40/1 respectively.

As expected, big-spending Wrexham, who reached the play-off semi-finals and FA Trophy final last season are the short title favourites at 9/4 (all further listed prices are with Betway).

Fellow beaten play-off sides Notts County (8/1), Chesterfield (9/1) and Solihull Moors (10/1) are predicted to be their nearest challengers.

Last term's eighth and ninth-placed sides, Dagenham & Redbridge (12/1) and Boreham Wood respectively (14/1), may also be in the mix.

Relegated League Two club Oldham Athletic join FC Halifax Town, Southend United and Torquay United at 20/1.

Alongside York at 25/1 are Yeovil Town, who have recorded two mid-table finishes (16th and 12th) since their 2020 play-off exit.

Newly-promoted pair Gateshead and Dorking Wanderers are 33/1, the same price as Barnet and relegated Scunthorpe United.

Bromley and Eastleigh (50/1) are among the outsiders alongside Altrincham, Maidenhead United, Maidstone United and Woking (66/1).

Wealdstone are bottom of the pricing at 150/1. No price has been offered for Aldershot Town, fourth-from-bottom last season, by Betway.
