Jameson's joy after City switch

14th June 2019

New signing Peter Jameson spoke to the media this lunchtime after completing his move from Blyth Spartans.

Goalkeeper Jameson, 26, will compete with teenager Ryan Whitley for City's number one jersey next season and hopes his experience of Vanarama National League North will help the club win promotion.

"I have got experience at this level and last season Blyth came very close in the play-offs. Hopefully I can bring that experience here and help the club get promotion," he said.

"I am looking forward to working with (goalkeeping coach) Andy Collett and Ryan - being competitive, and pushing each other," he added.

"Whoever gets the number one jersey come matchday on the first game of the season, we will both be there backing each other and pushing each other. At the end of the day, the main thing is the team getting three points come Saturday."

Jameson, who is 6ft 3ins tall, played against City three times last season and is looking forward to games at both Bootham Crescent and the new Community Stadium.

"As a player in this league, you look at the fixtures to see when you are playing against big clubs like York City," he said. When you are defending the bottom end (the David Longhurst Stand), the atmosphere makes it such a great occasion for a non-league player.

"Micky and Steve showed me around the (new) ground last week and it was unbelievable," he added. "It's a massive ground, a brand new stadium, and that really does attract me."
