YORK City chairman Jason McGill can’t believe that all his dreams have come true.

“Even I didn’t envisage that we would get the treble of the FA Trophy, the stadium and promotion in the biggest eight days in the history of York City Football Club,” the Minstermen chief said. “It’s unbelievable and bring on League Two.”

McGill broke down in tears in the Royal Box when greeting manager Gary Mills as it dawned that eight years in the Conference were over.

“Eight years is a long time in anyone’s life,” he added. “When the final whistle went there was a feeling of elation.

“I held it in. I thought I had done really well, until I saw Gary Mills and then I certainly welled up.”

McGill has estimated promotion brings a £750,000 financial reward for York, vital cash that will allow them to break even, rather than run at a loss, as well as investing in the club. Crucially, he wants City to push on next season.

McGill said: “We have been able to manage the football club on Conference income and we have lost money year on year, unless we have had a Trophy run, a run in the FA Cup or sold a player, but this provides us with financial security going forward.

“I don’t see why we can’t operate, break even, invest in the squad and put together a team that can compete in League Two.

“I truly believe with the structure we have got that we are a top half of League One team.”
