York City have made their fifth signing of the latest transfer window after former Mansfield Town centre-back John McCombe joined the club on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

"The Chairman and myself have worked hard over the last month or so to try and bring John into the football club" - Nigel Worthington
The 28-year-old left Field Mill earlier this week after managing only seven appearances since arriving from Port Vale last summer.

Born in Pontefract, McCombe began his career with Huddersfield Town before helping Hereford United to promotion from League Two. From there he joined Port Vale and played over two hundred senior games in five years, including 37 last term as they were also promoted from the same division.

"The Chairman and myself have worked hard over the last month or so to try and bring John into the football club," manager Nigel Worthington told York's official website. "We had to wait until the start of January to see where things were at Mansfield and we're absolutely thrilled to have John come and join us.

"He's an experienced player at League 2 level, has played a wealth of games and has captained Port Vale during their promotion season," he added. "To have that within a group I've got great faith in already is very very valuable. Hopefully he can come here and do really well, not only for himself but for the football club as well."

Worthington has already recruited former Cheltenham Town duo Keith Lowe and Russell Penn, together with Burton Albion midfielder Adam Reed and ex-Peterborough United striker Shaquille McDonald since the turn of the year.

Wrexham 2 York City 1

York City remain without an away win in almost a year following a 2-1 defeat to former manager Gary Mills' Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground.

Summer recruit John Rooney converted an early penalty after Matt Fry was adjudged to have fouled Paul Rutherford inside the area. But Richard Brodie struck for the fourth successive game to equalise before the break.

However, captain Sean Newton headed the Welsh side back in front with over an hour played as the visitors failed to rediscover a
