Defender Joe Tait signs new deal

7th May 2019

Joe Tait has signed a new contract with the club.

Centreback Tait, 29, joined the Minstermen last summer after spending four seasons with Vanarama National League North rivals Spennymoor Town.

He made 26 appearances last season and also enjoyed a spell as team captain.

"I am delighted with this opportunity and I just want to repay the faith of the football club and the manager (Steve Watson)," he said.   

"He's a real positive guy who has created a fantastic ethos and a good environment around the place, and we just need to buy into that. I am sure he will get people running through brick walls for him and the club will be going in the right direction."

Tait, who impressed on his return to the City side in the final month of the 2018-19 season, said: "I had found myself in a different role to what I had been used to during my senior career but I have tried to maintain my standards to keep training competitive in order for other lads to be ready for games.

"I kept my attitude right and the Gaffer has been spot-on. In the last three or four games, I have put in performances that have rewarded me with another opportunity to come and do well for the football club.

"I want to be a part of this journey. Under the Gaffer and Micky, I think we are going in the right direction."
