Doubts ended Brodie deal

York City manager Gary Mills admitted he had remained unsure about the prospect of bringing former striker Richard Brodie back to the club.

"If I had been completely 100 per cent sure about bringing him back, I'm sure he would be here now" - Gary Mills
The 25-year-old Gateshead-born marksman instead joined current Blue Square Bet Premier leaders Grimsby Town yesterday on loan for the rest of the campaign from Crawley Town, despite suggestions of interest from the Minstermen.

Brodie had so far this season been on loan to League Two rivals Morecambe, where he scored six times in 27 appearances. Last term he helped Fleetwood Town to promotion on a similar arrangement after previously doing the same with present employers Crawley.

"I was interested in Richard Brodie, but Grimsby have gone in for him and he's made a decision straight away, which is fine," Mills told The Press. "We've got a couple of players on our radar, as was Richard, but if I had been completely 100 per cent sure about bringing him back, I'm sure he would be here now.

Meanwhile, Mills also conceded that departing striker Liam Henderson had never managed to come up to expectations at Bootham Crescent after making only a handful of appearances since arriving from Watford eighteen months ago. The 23-year-old has finally joined hometown club Gateshead for the rest of the season following a recent loan spell.

"His performances have not been good enough," Mills stated. "That might sound blunt, but it's fact."
