Former York City striker Richard Brodie has continued his trend of joining Blue Square Bet Premier title-chasers by moving to current leaders Grimsby Town until the end of the season.

Brodie arrives on loan from League One promotion-chasers Crawley Town after previously helping both them and Fleetwood Town to achieve Football League status.

So far this season the 25-year-old has been trying his luck at that same level for the first time in his career whilst on loan at Morecambe - where he netted six times in 27 appearances.

York boss Gary Mills indicated he had considered a possible return for Brodie to Bootham Crescent after reports of the player's representatives approaching the Minstermen with a view to him having a second-spell with the club.

Gateshead-born Brodie originally joined York from Newcastle Benfield Bay Plastics six years ago and proved himself a regular goalscorer at non-league level - netting 37 times in his final season before eventually leaving the club for Crawley in September 2010.
