YORK City manager Martin Foyle admitted he was disappointed with his side’s display at Weymouth despite a 2-1 victory guaranteeing Blue Square Premier survival.

Adam Boyes scored the winning goal on 77 minutes after home striker Cliff Akurang had cancelled out Richard Brodie’s opening goal last night.

City boss Foyle, though, rued missed chances on an anxious evening at times with the visitors only netting twice from 18 goal attempts against a Weymouth team who were relegated after the result.

He said: “It was a bit nervy and not a great performance.

“After starting the game very well, we took our foot off the pedal and, if you do that in any game, you give yourselves trouble.

“When Mark Greaves came on we dealt with their long balls a lot better, but we could not put the ball in the net in the periods when we played well and I’m disappointed we never scored four or five.”

Foyle did praise 18-year-old striker Boyes, however, after his second goal in as many games.

Added the City manager: “Adam has got something.

“He’s not an out-and-out left-winger like some people want but he’s got the ability to play, select a final pass and score a goal.”

City now travel to Lewes tomorrow afternoon for the final Blue Square Conference game of the season and Foyle plans to rest cup-tied pair Christian Smith and Adam Smith as the preparations for Wembley’s FA Trophy final against Stevenage on May 9 begin in earnest.

He said: “There will be a few changes to give others a chance and an opportunity to top up their fitness.”
