York City boss Gary Mills is not looking to bolster his squad following the departure of defender Matty Fry.

Ex-Braintree centre-back Fry has left Bootham Crescent and is intending to return to part-time football after knee problems meant he had not figured for the Minstermen since January.

Other than the transfer-listed Ben Clappison, City only have three recognised senior centre halves now on their books in Dan Parslow, Hamza Bencherif and Jassem Sukar, but Mills argued that Fry’s lack of action for the last eight months means his exit should not be keenly felt.

“We’re not going down that road,” Mills said of the possibility of space being created on City’s wage bill due to Fry moving on. “I don’t want a squad of 30 players, which I inherited when I came here.

“I have a small group of players I am working with and, because of injuries, Matty hasn’t featured in that anyway, so it’s not like we’re losing somebody who has been involved greatly. I also know we have a squad of players who are good enough to achieve what we set out to achieve at the start of the season.”
