YORK City's latest recruit Alex Hurst hopes to get "fans off their seat" at the LNER Community Stadium next season.

Hurst joined York from Port Vale on Tuesday for an undisclosed fee, becoming City's fifth confirmed squad member for the new term, after retained trio Maxim Kouogun, Paddy McLaughlin, Olly Dyson and fellow summer signing Scott Boden, previously of Boreham Wood.

The winger made 29 appearances for Vale, 21 of which came in Sky Bet League Two.

Known for his pace, the 22-year-old is seeking to excite Minstermen fans during the club's first season back in the Vanarama National League.

“I can play on the left or the right wing, like a wide forward, and I’d like to think I’m someone who can get the fans off their seat," Hurst explained on his position and style.

“I like to run at players, attack players and get crosses into the box.

“I’d like to get my stats up and get some more goals and assists to my name, that’s my main goal for this season.”

Hurst's move to York sees him link up with manager John Askey for a second time in his career.

As Port Vale boss, Askey signed Hurst from Bradford (Park Avenue) and handed the former Crewe Alexandra youth player his Football League debut in 2020.

“I knew there was some interest here from talking to my agent last year and as soon as I heard that they wanted to sign me permanently I just wanted to get it over the line," Hurst explained.

“It is a great club and I’ve worked with the gaffer before, he gave me my debut in the Football League. To come here was a no-brainer.

“To work under a manager who you’ve done well for before (again) and at a big club like this made it a no-brainer and hopefully I can kick on now.”
