YORK City are expected to unveil several summer signings in the near future following Billy McEwan's return from holiday today.

The Minstermen have recruited former loan defender Darren Craddock from Hartlepool since the end of last season and McEwan will be looking to add to that tally ahead of the club's return for pre-season training.

Speaking after the news that City have sold more than 200 tickets, club secretary Nick Bassett said: "We are very pleased with the response and it's also great to see so many supporters buying season tickets for the first time.

"Billy McEwan returns from holiday today, so we can expect some more signings soon which I'm sure will also help to boost season ticket sales."

Supporters have until Tuesday, July 4 to buy their season tickets before the prices increase by ten per cent.

Forms can be downloaded from the internet at www.ycfc.net/season-ticket-form.htm or by visiting the ticket office. Season tickets for Under-12 fans only cost £32.

The Press, meanwhile, has learnt that packaging manufacturers CLP Industries will pay £50,000 to extend their shirt sponsorship of the club for another year.
