The Vanarama First Fortnight – York on the charge and set the early pace for the North!

The David Longhurst Stand
20th August 2019

League sponsors Vanarama have been busy assessing the season so far - and what’s ahead!

And so many people’s early favourites are top of the tree and looking pretty good so far. Steve Watson certainly made his mark with his transfers this summer and, on the face of it at least, they gelled almost immediately.

Top performer…

Steve McNulty has given exactly what the fans expected; leadership. Andy Bond has also looked quality from midfield. Goals have been coming from all over the team, so it all bodes well!

From the gaffer…

Watson has noticed the title favourites tag might be changing how teams approach his side. The gaffer admitted he’s noticed teams are changing their tactics to frustrate the Minstermen, but he admits, “We need to understand that it's going to be tough and nobody's going to roll over for us.”

Despite their incredible start, Watson believes they are still in second gear! “We'll play a hell of a lot better than that and we'll get better because we're still relatively new to the system and to the group,” he said.

Stat attack...

What the fans say…

“This is ridiculously good and I don't know what to think about this feeling of positivity tbh but please can you carry on,” wrote @bottom1984.

It might be early days, but @StrickenOffice is dreaming of silverware. He wrote: “Even I am starting to believe.”

“I can't believe how well it's going for us this season. Bet you're buzzing! Keep it up and we're up,” wrote happy fan @davidkow67.

Next up…

Spennymoor’s start to the season has been disrupted somewhat. That in mind, they’ve played three games. Jason Ainsley’s men will be desperate for a win at Brewery Field and will be hoping to put a blot on York’s perfect away form.

Their one to watch….

Glen Taylor bagged a hatful last season, and will no doubt do the same when he finds his scoring boots again. When will that be? Minstermen will hope it won’t be this Saturday!

Last time out….

Spennymoor took all the points last season with a 3-2 win at Bootham Crescent following up a 3-0 win in front of their own fans.
