York City assistant-manager Micky Cummins has insisted nobody at the club should be thinking about their beach holidays yet, York Press report.
The 14th-placed Minstermen currently lie 16 points above the National League North relegation zone, but eight adrift of the play-off positions, meaning sixth-tier football looks all but guaranteed regardless of the outcomes of the club’s final seven fixtures.
But, with only four players – Jordan Burrow, David Ferguson, Kallum Griffiths and Sean Newton – from Saturday’s first XI for the 2-2 home draw with Boston United contracted to the Minstermen beyond the end of this season, Cummins has argued that many players’ full-time livelihoods are now at stake.
“There are teams in this league that are probably already on the beach, but there is still a lot to play for here,” Cummins asserted. “We only have seven senior players contracted for next season, so lads are playing for their futures here or elsewhere.
“They have points to prove to themselves, us or other clubs and we will push them all the way to the last game.”
