Harrogate move is Sophie's choice

Harrogate move is Sophie's choice

York City Ladies striker Sophie Tinson has joined lower-ranked neighbours Harrogate Town Ladies.

The young goalscorer struck twenty-one times during an explosive debut season for the Minsterbelles' reserves last season, including two hat-tricks and a sequence of registering in seven successive games.

That found her deservedly earning an opportunity with the first-team ahead of their latest campaign, and she started the opening fixture, a 1-0 League Cup victory against Boro Rangers early last month.

Minsterbelles striker Sophie Tinson has moved to neighbours Harrogate Town

However, Tinson has now chosen to follow the route also recently taken by her ex-City team-mate Grace Foyer, and was on the bench for Harrogate's weekend 1-0 defeat at Altofts Ladies.

Managed by former York City FC defender Jon Maloney, Harrogate have links with Sports Recruiting USA Limited, which offers players the prospect of playing in the United States.

Their ranks also currently include another one-time City front-runner in Nat Eustance.

Angry Gray blasts players

Manager Martin Gray was leaving no doubt exactly where he believes the blame lies after blasting the latest display at Curzon Ashton as an "embarrassment and disgrace".

Curzon Ashton 4 York City 1

York City produced a shockingly atrocious performance while crashing 4-1 to lowly part-timers Curzon Ashton at the Tameside Stadium.

Home striker Niall Cummins claimed a first-half hat-trick having already seen a penalty saved by the outstanding Adam Bartlett, with Sam Walker adding to it after the break.

The visitors then had leading goalscorer Jon Parkin given a straight red card before new signing Alex Kempster impressively replied on his debut after coming off the bench.
