York City midfielder Tom Platt continues to push hard for the season's opener at Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

"I feel fit and have been playing quite well so I am ready to get going" - Tom Platt
The 20-year-old has enjoyed an impressive pre-season and is in serious contention for a start at Prenton Park.

Already noted as something of a goalscoring midfielder during productive loan spells at Harrogate Town, Platt has clearly 'muscled up' since last term and celebrated with a senior goal in the recent friendly against Nottingham Forest.

"I can't wait to get going," he told The Press. "It has been a good pre-season. I feel fit and have been playing quite well in the past few games so I am ready to get going now.

"Last season was a bit stop-start. I never really got going," Platt added. "I am looking forward to hopefully getting a good run in the team, get a start this week and press on from there."
