Nigel Worthington believes his collection of new recruits should add plenty to York City this season.

"In Marvin and Femi you have two very, very good full-backs" - Nigel Worthington
Worthington has already been very active in the transfer market this summer with five newcomers coming into the club and the promise of two or three more to follow.

A trio of arrivals at the back witnesses towering goalkeeper Jason Mooney being joined by the new full-back pairing of Marvin McCoy and Femi Ilesanmi, while dashing winger Anthony Straker has been brought in on the left to support latest goalscoring hope Jake Hyde.

"In Marvin and Femi you have two very, very good full-backs, who have got league experience and will add to us," Worthington told The Press. "To also bring Anthony in, with that pace and direct style of play, to go and get defenders and hopefully score goals, will be another addition to the team and the group of players.

"With Jake coming into the club, he has scored goals in the Football League and scored a lot of goals in the Conference," he added. "It's a case of coming in and doing what he does best."

Harrogate game sold out

York City's visit to current leaders Harrogate Town is now a complete sell-out this weekend.

Harrogate Town v York City

The fixture that surely nobody believed would ever happen finally becomes a startling reality this weekend as York City make the short twenty-mile trip for a league game at Harrogate Town.

Never considered a serious enough challenge to warrant the title of 'rivals', Harrogate were obviously recognised neighbours but always the much poorer relations. And while they doubtless significantly aided in developing the goalscoring talents of City's 1993 Wembley-winning striker Ian Blackstone, the
