York pulled out of deal - Beck

York pulled out of deal - Beck

Striker Mark Beck admitted that York City had pulled out of his proposed move to Bootham Crescent last month.

The 23-year-old former Carlisle United and Yeovil Town marksman therefore instead remained with their National League North rivals Darlington, until joining promotion-hopefuls Harrogate Town for an undisclosed fee earlier this week.

Beck struck eighteen goals in 41 games for Darlington under current York manager Martin Gray last season.

"He [Gray] joined [York] on the Sunday," Beck told BBC Radio York. "He was ringing me up and I was going to go [to York], but there were a few complications.

"Obviously I'm out injured at the minute - and I still am now," he added. "So they [York] didn't want to take that risk and it didn't happen in the end."
