Jamie and the Magic Touch

Jamie and the Magic Touch

Former York City youth-team winger Jamie Hopcutt scored a superb late goal as Swedish minnows Ostersund shocked Turkish giants Galatasaray 2-0 in their Europa League second qualifying round first-leg tie.

The 25-year-old ex-Ossett Town and Tadcaster Albion player produced a lovely individual stoppage-time finish to add to Saman Ghoddos' opener midway through the second-half.

Managed by former York left-back Graham Potter, Ostersund qualified for the competition after incredibly winning the Swedish Cup last season having previously dramatically risen from the third tier into the top-flight.

Hopcutt was released by the Minstermen during Gary Mills' first spell in charge, but has since responded with 39 goals in 109 games for the Swedish club.

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.
