Ferguson looking forward to Darlo return

14th September 2019

York City left-back David Ferguson is eagerly anticipating the chance to set the record straight with his former club as he and the Minstermen head to Blackwell Meadows to take on Darlington today.

Ferguson made 31 appearances and scored five times during his time with the Quakers, but the defender insisted there will be no niceties as Steve Watson’s men look to move back to the top of the table with a win this weekend.

He said: “It would mean a massive amount to me to win. I think I got a mixed response when I went back (to Darlington) last season, but it’ll be nice to go back again and hopefully get the three points this time.

City suffered a 5-1 defeat during their visit to Darlington last season, before returning the favour in the new year with a convincing 4-0 win over the Quakers at Bootham Crescent. 

“I thought I had done well during my time there and I had a good relationship with their supporters but obviously now I’m playing for York, so I’ll always want to get one over on them.” 

The 25-year-old has made an impressive start to the season, supplying numerous assists while keeping his starting berth for all ten of City’s opening fixtures.

He said: “I’ve had a good start but it’s collective; when the team is doing well, you’ll do well too. But individually it’s nice to contribute with some assists and to have a good clean sheet record so far. We’re winning games and that’s all that matters.

“On a whole our start to the season has been very positive, if somebody said at the start of the season we would have 22 points from ten games I’d have snapped their hand off.

“This season the supporters have been brilliant, it helps that we’re winning of course, and that we’re at the right end of the table but as ever if we do our jobs properly, we always know that the supporters will be right behind us.  

“The manager is all about enforcing standards, since he’s come in he’s changed the entire mentality around the place in every aspect of the club from us, to the supporters” Ferguson concluded.
