Video: Keeper ready for the challenge

Goalkeeper Adam Bartlett is ready for the challenge after signing an eighteen-month deal with York City.

The 31-year-old former Darlington shot-stopper therefore reunites with his former manager Martin Gray at Bootham Crescent. He also includes earlier spells with Blyth Spartans, Kidderminster Harriers, Hereford United, Gateshead and Hartlepool United.

"The opportunity came to work with Martin again and I jumped at the chance," Bartlett told York's official YouTube channel. "I know what he's all about. He's obviously been very successful with what he's done at Darlington over the past five or six years.

"I think he's going to bring success at York City and the fact that he wanted to bring me here and be a part of it was great.

"Everybody knows the size and stature of the club and I'm just really looking forward to getting started," Bartlett continued. "Hopefully with a little bit of luck and some good performances along the way, we'll be where we want to be come the end of the season."

"We've been looking around for a goalkeeper and had Bailey [Peacock-Farrell] on loan for a month," added City's sporting director Dave Penney. "But I think deep down Martin always wanted Adam.

"Obviously he's worked with him before and has great respect and trusts him. And it's a massively important position at any football club is the goalkeeper.

"Thanks to the chairman; Adam doesn't come free and we've had to pay a transfer fee for him. So the chairman has once again backed the manager and we are delighted to bring him in."
