YORK City have a nucleus to build on after a first victory under Adam Hinshelwood seven days ago.

Lenell John-Lewis’ last-ditch header earned Hinshelwood a needed first three points as York manager, with the City boss struggling to hide his emotions after the match with the Minstermen rising to 21st position in the Vanarama National League.

Having reflected on the contest, Hinshelwood feels that his side now have a real ‘nucleus’ for the club to build upon, starting with tomorrow afternoon’s visit to Bromley (3pm).

“We went through some bits, it was the first game where I watched it back and felt that there was a real nucleus for us to work on,” Hinshelwood enthused.

“I thought our out-of-possession stuff was good as we have done some real work on that, we made some good chances as well and had a bit more possession.

“The lads looked a lot more comfortable doing that and I felt that it was the first game where it was definitely something to build on for us.

“I had a couple (of beers), but very quickly on Sunday we started prepping and getting ready for Bromley.

“We’re not in a position where we can celebrate too much, but getting that first win felt good.

“It’s not something you put on and I’m not someone who can hide my emotions, it’s honest and that’s what you will get from me.

“It was a real emotional few weeks, I felt on Saturday what this club can achieve when you get it right and felt that the fans were fully behind us throughout the game.

“They enjoyed the football that we put on and that’s something that I want to bring to this club n a permanent basis.

“Even in the bad result we had last week was just a few mistakes at wrong times which cost us in that, we knew that we was nowhere near our best and we can’t get too carried away.

“It was just one win and we need more, but at the same time the spirit has been good.

“I’ve done my history and there has been spirit before at this club, it’s talked about and it’s something we have to aspire towards.

“It’s got to be there for us in these remaining games.”

Hinshelwood also discussed the seven changes he made after the midweek 6-1 drubbing from Altrincham, and how his side will want to keep their shirt after responding against Altrincham.

The City boss also hopes to keep emotions high after a first victory, after illness struck the York camp this week with Danny Amos and Tyler Cordner struggling throughout training.

Hinshelwood explained: “When you lose in the manner we did, no one’s place was safe, and when you win everyone will want to keep their shirt.

“That’s football and that’s how it’s got to work, we’ve got to look at that and injuries and there is a bit of illness in the camp.

“So we’ve got to make sure everybody comes through that, who is available and who isn’t available.

“Like I say, if we go down there in good spirits we know that it’s just one result and we know that we need more than one result.”
