Pacey full back Marvin McCoy arrived at Bootham Crescent in the summer of 2014, leaving League Two rivals Wycombe Wanderers to sign a two-year contract.

McCoy 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 to North Yorkshire.

McCoy is a full Antigua and Bermuda international with eight international appearances to his name. He will no doubt look to further his international aspirations with classy displays the red 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, McCoy settled comfortably into life at Bootham Crescent. The tricky full-back made his debut in the opening game of the 2014-15 season in a 1-1 draw with Tranmere Rovers and went on to appear 35 times for the Minstermen.
