York City FC Player Profiles

Posted 28th July 2015 at 12:00 pm

Quick of brain and skilful on the ball, Michael Coulson extended his City contract by a further two years in the summer of 2014.

Comfortable on either flank or playing as a second striker, Coulson is a diverse player who is both a maker and taker of chances.

Coulson arrived at City in the summer of 2012 after sealing a move from Grimsby Town following a stint playing in the Championship with Barnsley and starting off with City’s now defunct neighbours Scarborough, including for a long time being Scarborough’s youngest ever goalscorer.

His time at Grimsby marked him out as one of the most feared widemen in the National League and he has continued that form in a City shirt, with the ability to score fantastic goals such as the screamer he netted on his debut away at Doncaster and the free kick that was voted City’s Moment of the Season at home against Newport during the 2013/14 season.

Coulson will be relishing the challenge of competing for both the wide and striking roles next season following a solid few seasons, producing a total of 16 goals for City.
