TWO former York City strikers have linked up in the Vanarama National League North, with Michael Coulson joining Clayton Donaldson at Farsley Celtic.

Donaldson’s first managerial role in football has been steadily improving, with Farsley currently occupying 17th position in the National League North after embarking on a five match unbeaten run.

The 39-year-old has now added even more firepower to the Celt’s, with ex-City striker Coulson making the switch from Scarborough Athletic.

Coulson joins Farsley after a six year period with Scarborough, helping the Seadogs to promotion from the Northern Premier League before leaving by mutual consent last week.

The veteran forward arrives with his own experience of York just like his boss Donaldson, having made 117 appearances and scoring 20 goals from 2012 to 2016, before leaving for the Scottish Premiership after City's relegation to the Vanarama National League.

Speaking on his move to Farsley, Coulson told club media: “I had a brilliant time at Scarborough but the time had come for me to move on.

“I’m looking forward to joining Farsley. It’s going to be an exciting new challenge for me, but I’m driven and determined to do well and score goals for the club. I can’t wait to get started.

“My aim is to come in and make a difference by helping the squad push up the league table.

“We have good players here and the team is doing well.”

Donaldson was equally as pleased to welcome the attacker, saying: “Coulo is a proven goalscorer and it’s great to get him over the line.

“I’m delighted to have him on board, particularly given the injuries we have had of late.

“We’ve been lacking a bit of experience up front in the past few games and Michael will offer us something different.”
