We can now announce the permanent signing of Lenell John-Lewis, effective from 1st July 2022.

The frontman joined initially on loan from Grimsby Town in February, before extending his stay until the end of the season – going on to score in each of the club’s playoff games and helping the Minstermen achieve promotion.

The 33-year-old has played the majority of his career in the Football League for the likes of Lincoln City, Bury and Shrewsbury Town with John Askey and will now play under the Manager once more in the National League.

Upon signing a permanent deal, he said: “I think it was always going to happen but it’s taken longer because I’ve been away but it feels good to be back.

“The club is going in the right direction and after promotion, I wanted to come back and try and progress with the club again.

“For me, I always say that if I play games I will score goals and hopefully more will come. Hopefully, I can hit the ground running again when the season starts but also have a good pre-season first.”

The deal is subject to FA and National League approval.
