New Signing At Full Back

Pacy full back Marvin McCoy joined the Bootham Crescent revolution in the summer of 2014, leaving League Two rivals Wycombe Wanderers to sign a two year contract at City.

Marvin came through the youth ranks of Arsenal and Watford, before moving into non-league football to kick start his career. After impressing with Wealdstone he turned professional with Wycombe Wanderers in 2010 and in his first season as a professional won promotion with the Chairboys to League One.

A key player on the right hand side of defence during his first two years with Wycombe, he bounced back from injury to once again tie up that right back slot during the 2013-14 season before moving North to Yorkshire.

Marvin is a full Antigua and Bermuda international, and has made 7 international appearances to date. He will no doubt look to further his international aspirations with classy displays in the red and blue of City.

Comfortable with the defensive demands of the modern full back role, whilst liking to get forward in support of his winger and able to whip in a good cross, Marvin stated on signing he was excited about learning more about the full back role from City manager Nigel Worthington, an international fullback in his own playing days, and City fans will hope that Marvin can continue to learn and develop for the good of the Minstermen.
