PETER TILL looks poised to join York City’s Blue Square Bet Premier rivals Fleetwood Town.

The winger, who scored four goals in 45 appearances for the Minstermen last season after leaving Walsall, is expected to put pen to paper on a two-year deal following the end of his contract at Bootham Crescent.

He will join former City striker Richard Brodie at Highbury, who joined Fleetwood on a year-long loan from league champions Crawley Town.

Till told Fleetwood Town’s website: “I’m quite looking forward to joining Fleetwood Town once my contract with York City ends. Everyone at the club is very ambitious.

“Both the chairman and manager are very positive about the direction the club is taking.

“The chairman doesn’t want to stay in this league, he wants to go up.

“That ambition is massive. It’s a big factor for me as I want to return to League football.

“I can’t wait to come back to pre-season and start a new challenge.”

York boss Gary Mills said Till’s departure was not a surprise.

“He did okay for me,” said Mills. “I knew, as much as you can in football, what was going on and knew Peter was going to Fleetwood anyway.

“He wasn’t someone that was in my plans so it wasn’t a shock. It was something I was expecting.”
