Dan Pybus signs for York City

By Dan Simmonite | 2nd August 2022

We are delighted to announce the signing of Dan Pybus from Dunfermline Athletic.

Pybus won Manager’s Player of the Year last season for the Scottish Championship club and joins as John Askey’s 23rd squad member ahead of the National League opener this Saturday against Woking.

Previous to his time in Scotland, the now 24-year-old played in Norway for FK Tønsberg and in League One for Bradford City after graduating through the academy at Sunderland.

The ball-winning midfielder played 90 minutes in the final pre-season fixture against Notts County last week and impressed in the centre of the park.

Upon signing, Pybus said: “I’m delighted to be here and I’m excited to get started as soon as possible.

“My dad is from Yorkshire, so he has bigged this place up a lot. My end goal has always been to come back and play in England – Scotland was a good opportunity and I got plenty of games up there but when this opportunity came up, I just couldn’t say no.

“Everyone knows how big this club is and when he (the Manager) got in touch it was a definite yes straight away. He didn’t need to sell it.

“I like winning the ball back and keeping the ball. I’d say I’m an energetic midfielder and hardworking as well as good on the ball.”

The deal is subject to FA and National League approval.
