Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope has bought one of the goals from York City’s Bootham Crescent.

With the National League North club bidding farewell to the famous old ground, the England international opted to donate to his former loan side.

The 29-year-old represented the club while at Charlton Athletic.

He told BBC Radio York: “I bid on it because it coincided with my garden getting renovated and I just thought there was a nice space at the end for it.

“I thought it would be a good thing to help the club if I won the bid, and if someone else outbid me, then that would be more money for them.”
