Promising York-born defender Tom Allan has signed professional terms with his hometown club.

"I think he has got a good future in the game" - Gary Mills
The eighteen-year-old centre-back has appropriately earned himself an eighteen-month deal following more than a decade with the club.

"Tom has come on unbelievably in the last 12 months and thoroughly deserves his first professional contract," manager Gary Mills told York's official website. "I think he has got a good future in the game and will be travelling with the First Team down to Plymouth this weekend."

A self-confessed City fan, Allan has been allocated shirt number 27 at Bootham Crescent.

Good game and decent teams - Penney

York City assistant manager Dave Penney believes it was a case of a couple of well-matched teams following the 2-2 draw with Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

Both sides were denied a sixth consecutive victory as York City twice led against promotion rivals Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

On loan defender Jonny Burn's third goal in nine games earned them a half-time lead that was cancelled out by Ryan Hall soon after the restart.

But Aidan Connolly restored the home advantage with seventeen minutes remaining, although that was swiftly matched by Andrew Johnson as the honours were eventually shared.
