Vanarama National League North club York City signed midfielder Liam Agnew on a month`s loan from National League neighbours Harrogate Town in time for him to make his debut as a sub in Boxing Day`s 5-1 thrashing at Darlington.

After captaining Sunderland’s under-21 sides to second and third-placed finishes, Agnew joined Boston United after impressing the Pilgrims’ management on loan.

The central midfielder was soon named club captain before Harrogate claimed his signature in January 2017.

Agnew made his debut for Town towards the end of the 2016/17 season after recovering from a serious injury suffered at Boston.

The 23-year-old has spent the last four weeks back at Boston on loan.
