York City striker Michael Coulson will take heart from the second-half-of-the-season revival at Bootham Crescent.

"I was out in the cold and I battled back" - Michael Coulson
The Minstermen surged from just above the relegation zone at the turn of the year to eventually claiming seventh place in
the table and a play-off position.

Coulson, 26, is certainly no stranger to fighting back having previously suffered three cruciate ligament injuries during his career. He had also been out of favour earlier in the campaign but finally ended it as a really key performer in the side.

"I have to take a little bit of courage from what happened this season," Coulson told The Press. "I was out in the cold and I battled back. It is pleasing to finish the season that way.

"In the end, though, it doesn't mean anything when you don't win the play-offs," he reflected. "I will be back again next season and we will see what happens then."

Harrogate Town 2 York City 0

York City went down to a sobering 2-0 defeat to National League North leaders Harrogate Town at the CNG Stadium.

The Minstermen were soon in arrears to their neighbours after goalkeeper Jon Worsnop brought down Jordan Thewlis and Joe Leesley converted the penalty.

Their task became even more difficult early in the second-half, Liam Agnew's effort taking a big deflection past Worsnop. Skipper Sean Newton later struck an upright but a recovery never appeared likely.
