York City FC looks forward to finally facing Boston United FC

After their win against Chester FC on Saturday, York City are ready to face Boston United tomorrow. The last time the two teams clashed in 2020 York lost 3-1 and meant the club lost out on their chance to go to the top of National League North.

York City were supposed to face Boston United FC earlier this year but due to complications regarding Covid-19 the match was cancelled.

Steve Watson, York City FC’s manager said: “We’ve got a big week coming up so obviously delighted today but need to get everybody back and fit as they can be for the game on Tuesday.”

The manager also expressed his concern over Michael Duckworth’s injury since he is a key player for the team. He returned to the club after 10 years having played for most of his career with Hartlepool United. It is likely he won’t be appearing in Tuesday evening’s match but Watson said that he would be assessing the player’s situation today as it would be “a bit careless of us to rush him back after the injury he’s had”.

However, on a more positive note he did say that it is: “Good to have Matty Brown back and great to have Shaun Newton back in and around the squad.” Both players have received high praise from the club on how they have played since signing, with Shaun Newton remaining as the club captain and Matty Brown being the latest to sign.

York City FC have been on a winning streak over the last four games they have played. Boston United FC however have lost two of the last four games they have played, along with Jake Wright being penalised with a red card in their match against Stratford Town.

Some sources have named Boston as favourites to win, but with York’s winning streak the club are going into the match with positive energy and a willingness to continue even with so many injuries over the last few matches.

Whilst the men’s team are soaring ahead, York City Ladies after five wins and one draw over their last few matches have lost against North East Regional Women’s Football league, with York Ladies conceding three goals without scoring any themselves. In a tweet this morning, they also said: “Unfortunately we bow out of the @VitalityWFACup and @NUFCWomen progress into the first round. Apologies for no updates during the game.”
