Former winger leaves hometown club

Former winger leaves hometown club

Former York City winger Kenny McEvoy has left League of Ireland outfit Waterford by mutual consent.

The 22-year-old appeared sixteen times and scored once while helping his hometown club to the top of the league, but has now decided to return to England and a new full-time job while supporting his young family.

"I was given an opportunity I couldn't pass up on which means my family could settle for the first time in four years," McEvoy told Waterford's official website. "The help and support shown to me during my time at Waterford by all the staff has been great and I really hope that the lads go on to win the league."

Republic of Ireland Under-21 international McEvoy scored twice in nineteen appearances for the Minstermen having signed from Tottenham Hotspur in January 2016 after a successful loan.

One of his strikes came against former club Stevenage and before substitute Danny Galbraith grabbed a dramatic late winner in a 2-1 victory at Bootham Crescent.

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.
