Apologetic York City manager Martin Gray admitted the club’s sorry end to the season had been a “disaster” following a final-day 2-0 defeat at Brackley.

The result meant the Minstermen concluded their campaign by taking just one point from a possible 18, as they dropped out of play-off contention and finished 11th in National League North. Midfielder James Armson bagged a second-half brace to secure maximum points for a Brackley side who could finish no higher or lower than third going into the afternoon’s fixture, meaning home advantage had already been secured for the play-off, semi-finals.

Reflecting on his team’s April capitulation and the path to improved future fortunes, Gray said: “I have to apologise to the fans.

“We’ve not achieved and I have to take the blame for that and make sure I put it right and turn things around. Our supporters work hard so they can pay good money to travel everywhere with us and the end of the season has been a disaster, so we have got to give them something back.

“Hopefully, there will be one or two signings now by Friday and, as I’ve asked before, people can judge me then when they’ve seen what success is.”
