Video: Keeper comes well-recommended

New goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell comes highly-recommended to the club according to manager Martin Gray.

The 20-year-old has arrived on a month's loan from Leeds United and goes straight into the City squad for their weekend trip to Leamington.

Darlington-born Peacock-Farrell already made his Championship debut eighteen months ago and was also recently involved with the Northern Ireland national squad.

"He's been very highly-recommended from certain people in the game that we spoke to over this last working week," Gray told York's official YouTube channel. "He's a big 6ft 4ins, very, very athletic - and had a very good upbringing in the game at Middlesbrough and Leeds United.

"His all-round game has been very good but he needs some senior football now," he added. "He's a Northern Ireland international, so I think he's got a massive future ahead of him. But he just needs some senior football and hopefully we can give him the opportunity of that."

York City produced another deeply uninspiring display while being held 1-1 by lowly part-timers Alfreton Town at Bootham Crescent.

That was despite midfielder Simon Heslop earning them an early fifth-minute lead that was cancelled out by former York defender Tom Allan before the break.

Manager Martin Gray earlier made a single-change from the woeful 4-1 defeat at Curzon Ashton, with goalscorer Alex Kempster given a full debut as replacement for the suspended Jon Parkin. Louis Almon
