York City manager Martin Gray has enforced an alcohol ban at Bootham Crescent until the end of the season.
The former Darlington boss has forbidden his players from recreational drinking for the next two months, arguing the time to indulge will be when the team has something to toast.
Gray was speaking after his team ground out a 1-0 home win over Boston United, following Ben Middleton’s second-half own goal. Tempers flared, meanwhile, at the end of the contest as City midfielder Simon Heslop was sent off, along with Boston pair Andy Thanoj and the hapless Harrogate Town loan defender Middleton.
Issuing his booze stance at the final whistle, Gray declared: “There will be no alcohol at all from now until the end of the season. We’ll celebrate when we’ve won something.
“We’ve got nine games to go and we’ve got to finish as high as we possibly can.”
