Josh Law Interview

After completing his first training session after signing for York City, new right-back Josh Law came to speak to the Official Website.

Q: Josh, a warm welcome to York City. What attracted you to the club?

“I think the main factor was how well run the club is. I’ve played here in the past with Alfreton and always enjoyed it here. When I spoke to the Manager he told me how much I would enjoy it because of how good the club is, how good the fans are, and how well it’s run. I’ve been in today and seen for myself how well run it is. Looking at the facilities you would think it’s a League club, and I’m really looking forward to getting going.”

Q: You’ve had your first training session. Have you played with or against any of the current York City players? Any familiar faces there?

“I’ve played with one of the club’s other new signings, Jon Worsnop. I played with him at Alfreton. I think it was the back end of my last season there and he was really good. We’ve got ourselves a good keeper. I’ve played against a few of the lads there in the past as well. In all honesty, it’s a squad that probably belongs at a higher level than this league but we’ve got to prove that on the pitch. Hopefully we’ll bounce straight back up.”

Q: You’ve played here once before, and it is a painful memory for City fans when you came here with Alfreton and beat us 1-0 in a Conference fixture during our promotion season. What are your memories of that game?

“I remember that one-nil win and we won it with a penalty. I think we hung on for ninety minutes! But we needed the win at that time as we’d just come up ourselves from Conference North and were struggling. Yes, I remember it well. It was a good crowd and a great day for Alfreton.”

Q: We’ve sold over 1,400 Season Tickets for next season which, along with Stockport, is the highest in the division. Does that motivate you when you receive that level of support from the fans, especially after two disappointing seasons?

“Yes, definitely. If we can get off to a good start and get them behind us, then I think there’s no doubt we’ll have three or four thousand in the ground. Those numbers through the door can only help us and push us on in this league to try and get out of it. It’s a competitive league now with a lot of money getting thrown about and it will be tough to get out. But I think we’ve got a squad together that’s capable of it so we hope to do it on the pitch”.

Q: Finally, how was training today? What were your first impressions of the Gaffer and Darren?

“I really enjoyed it. They are good people. Darren likes a joke but he’s serious with his work and it’s intense. The Gaffer is a really good bloke as well and I’m looking forward to playing for him.”
