York City are pleased to announce the new intake of Academy players for the 2023/24 season.
Last season, the Under-19’s finished the season very strongly, which saw them only suffer one defeat in eighteen games in all competitions.
The U19’s finished third in the National League Alliance Academy North, finishing six points behind leaders Blyth Spartans, but their biggest success last season was beating Woking 1-0 at St Georges Park in May, which saw them crowned National League Academy Cup winners.
The new intake includes eleven new players who have joined the Youth-Team, who will look to impress U19 manager Tim Ryan over the next couple of years as they aim to secure a professional deal with the Minstermen.
Goalkeeper Harry Carr, Defenders Benji Tate, Roan Shirley, Aaron Dijikingue and MacKenzie Crookes, Midfielders George Grumley, Alex Glynn and Bailey Wilson, and Forwards Adam Nganga, Noah Mortimer and Harvey Hope are the eleven new players who have joined the youth-team over the summer.
They join the squad alongside current second-year prospects Bill Marshall, Alex Payne, Harley Dawson, Williams Edenene, Charlie Lumsden, Harry Burland and Alex Hernandez.
Wing-back George Harrison also qualifies to play for the U19’s this season, having signed his first professional contract with the Minstermen, as well as goalkeeper Sam Taylor, who has recently joined the Minstermen following his departure from Huddersfield Town.
The U19’s kick off their new season tomorrow afternoon when they welcome Boston United to the training ground (1pm kick-off).
Full academy player profiles will be updated on the official club website very shortly.
