STRIKER Aiden Marsh has departed York City after being recalled by parent club Barnsley. 

Marsh joined York as manager Neal Ardley's second signing alongside loanee Will Smith, and has left City after Barnsley activated their recall clause in his contract. 

The young striker made seven appearances in his time with the club and failed to register a goal for the Minstermen whilst providing additional support to Dipo Akinyemi and Lenell John-Lewis, seeing City only have two registered forwards currently with the club. 

It will come as a surprise to York supporters after the two clubs agreed to extend his loan deal by an additional month on Wednesday, October 25 after an initial one-month loan spell, making his debut in City's 4-2 defeat to Barnet in late September. 

Marsh signed a contract extension with Barnsley at the beginning of the 2023/24 season which sees his deal with the Tykes run out at the end of the current season, and is available for selection in Barnsley's trip to Derby County on Saturday, November 11.
