NEAL ARDLEY is looking to ‘enhance’ York City with the players he brings into the football club.

Danny Amos’ arrival this week was Ardley’s third permanent signing since the York boss took the reigns in September, with the Minstermen proving more cautious in the approach to bringing in new players since the Summer's flurry of incomings.

Ardley held a recruitment meeting with his backroom staff and co-owners Matt and Julie-Anne Uggla on Tuesday, with the City boss keen to ‘enhance’ the strength of his squad with a game-changer, preferably before the end of the Vanarama National League season.

“We’re looking at things with the team that might enhance us, whether if that is sheer pace or one-on-one domination, and we’re looking if there is a player out there,” Ardley explained.

“There might not be one, but we’re doing lists and lists and we’re cracking on and watching on to see if there is a player out there to give us something that we haven’t got.

“We’ve looked at different positions and players, we had a recruitment meeting with Julie-Anne, Matt and the recruitment team on Tuesday and talked again about whether there were any game-changers out there that could massively elevate us.”

Ardley discussed complications the club have faced in bringing in new players, with targets opting to see their full list of options at the end-of-the-season, rather than committing to City.

“At this stage of the season, I’ve mentioned in the Press before but we did make offers in January to certain players that never materialised because of location, lifestyle or what they were doing, it never suited the person and fell through.

“We have borderline two months to go (of the season), some players will be out of contract in the Summer, so they will wait to have options, or they can jump in with York City with two months to go.”
