Former striker bemoans limited opportunities

Former striker bemoans limited opportunities

Former striker Scott Fenwick says he wasn't allowed enough opportunities at York City but hasn't ruled out returning to this country.

The 27-year-old marksman is currently leading goalscorer for Naxxar Lions in Malta with six goals in eleven appearances since joining on a two-year deal in September.

Gateshead-born Fenwick was released by the Minstermen at the end of last season after managing just three goals in twenty-nine appearances following his arrival from Hartlepool United in July 2016.

His most significant contributions while at Bootham Crescent proved to be kick-starting a dramatic late comeback in a 2-2 draw at Sutton United in March, before a week later converting a vital extra-time penalty at Lincoln City in the FA Trophy semi-final.

"If you look at pre-season at York, I played every game and scored eight goals," Fenwick told the Northern Echo. "I went into the season feeling positive and fresh, we had five points from three games and we were unbeaten.

"When Gary Mills came in and the standard of players increased I felt I would get more opportunities to score goals," he added. "However I became even more of a bit-part, sometimes making appearances in the 87th-90th minute of games. I wasn't given much of an opportunity to help the boys avoid relegation."

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
