York City retained list for 2023/24 season

Our retained list has been confirmed following the conclusion of our 2022/23 campaign.

13 players remain under contract or have had clauses in their contract exercised for the 2023/24 season.

Discussions are ongoing with five players while two will be invited to take part in preseason but have not yet been offered a new deal.

Three players will be sadly leaving the club after their contracts expired at the end of the season and five loan players will be returning to their parent clubs.

The contracts of first-year pros involved in the U19s squad will be reviewed upon the conclusion of their season next week.

We would like to place on record our gratitude to the departing players who all played a part in securing safety in our first season back in the Vanarama National League. They leave with our best wishes for their futures.
