No striker agreement

No striker agreement

Darlington manager Tommy Wright says there is no agreement in place regarding injured striker Mark Beck moving to York City once recovered.

The 23-year-old former Carlisle United marksman appeared ready to join the Minstermen last month, until the deal collapsed due to an ongoing posterior cruciate ligament injury.

He's since missed five of their last six games, with no date currently set for his return to action, although he is back in the gym and preparing to begin running.

York boss Martin Gray has already previously raided his former club for England 'C' international David Ferguson, while also trying to recruit similarly capped goalkeeper Adam Bartlett.

"In the chats I've had with Becky he's said he's happy, he's settled and focused on getting back on the pitch," Darlington counterpart Wright told The Northern Echo. "There's been no contact with York since what happened.

"Good players will always attract attention, that's football, and every player has his price, but I'd like to think we can keep him and he's happy where he is."

Good game and decent teams - Penney

York City assistant manager Dave Penney believes it was a case of a couple of well-matched teams following the 2-2 draw with Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

Both sides were denied a sixth consecutive victory as York City twice led against promotion rivals Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

On loan defender Jonny Burn's third goal in nine games earned them a half-time lead that was cancelled out by Ryan Hall soon after the restart.

But Aidan Connolly restored the home advantage with seventeen minutes remaining, although that was swiftly matched by Andrew Johnson as the honours were eventually shared.
