Martin wings in for City

Former Barnsley and Cheltenham Town winger Martin Devaney could earn himself a permanent move to York City if he impresses on trial.

"He's available and still hungry to do well at 32, so there's a good possibility he could join us" - Gary Mills
The 32-year-old forward was set to be involved in a behind-closed-doors reserve team game against Scunthorpe United today. He has recently been playing for Dublin side Bohemians after being released by Tranmere Rovers at the end of last season.

Devaney arrives with vast experience and in excess of 400 senior games, including many at Championship level during six years with Barnsley and more than two hundred appearances and over forty goals for hometown club Cheltenham.

"Martin is an experienced wide striker," manager Gary Mills told The Press. "He will play for us today if the game goes ahead and he`s here with a view to looking at him and taking him on. He`s been with us for a week, but it's been a bit of a nightmare because we haven't been able to train properly due to the weather.

"He's done fantastically well in his career and has still got lots to offer. He's a fit, fit lad and isn't tied up anywhere," he added. "He's available and still hungry to do well at 32, so there's a good possibility he could join us."

The Minstermen are currently short of options going forward with Ashley Chambers, Michael Coulson and Oli Johnson consigned to the injury-list, although Johnson was also set to be involved against Scunthorpe today while centre-back Chris Doig is still ruled out with ankle trouble.
