Phil Parkinson hailed a ‘top achievement’ by his Altrincham team after they completed a notable double over a York City side steeped in Football League history at Bootham Crescent on Saturday, The Messenger report.

The Alty boss was full of praise for his players after they added a hard-fought 1-0 win to November’s 3-0 home triumph against the Minstermen with a brilliantly-executed second-half volley from Josh Hancock.

It moved them up a place to sixth in National League North, and they have the chance to climb even higher at The J.Davidson Stadium on Saturday when they face a Brackley Town side who are just one point better off in fourth.

“I thought we were really efficient in everything we did,” said Parkinson.

“We had a strong, swirling wind in our faces in the first half, but I don’t remember York troubling us too much.

“On the one occasion they got through, Tony Thompson bailed us out with a great stop.

“He has been outstanding since coming back in and has really got the bit between his teeth.”
