Released keeper gets new club

Released keeper gets new club

Released York City goalkeeper Jon Worsnop has signed for National League North rivals Southport.

The 34-year-old departed Bootham Crescent earlier today having made fourteen appearances since joining the Minstermen from Bradford Park Avenue last summer.

He's likely to make an immediate home debut against Blyth Spartans this weekend, with both Mark Halstead and Iain Turner currently receiving treatment.

"Jon is someone I've known personally for a number of years," manager Kevin Davies told Southport's official website. "He's got a great attitude, he's a big character. He's vocal and can organise the defence.

"He possibly suffered a little bit with the change of management at York but he brings a wealth of experience and we're really pleased to have him on board."

Worsnop has also played for both Chester clubs, Aberystwyth Town, Droylsden, Leigh Genesis, Guiseley and FC United of Manchester after beginning his career with hometown side Bradford City.

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.
