Vanarama National League new boys York City have snapped up right-back Shaun Rooney.

The 19-year-old put pen-to-paper on his deal at Bootham Crescent and becomes McNamara’s second signing of the week so far, following Alex Whittle’s arrival.ycfc

Rooney began his career with Dundee United in 2010 but after failing to make the break through at Tannadice, he moved to Scottish League Two side Queen’s Park three years later.

Over the course of the next two campaigns, the defender went on to make forty-two appearances in all competitions for the Hampden Park outfit, helping them to the play-offs in his second season after netting four times in thirty outings.

His performances at such a young age hadn’t gone unnoticed and after being named in the division’s team of the year and voted the club’s young player of the year, Scottish League One side Dunfermline Athletic swooped for his services on a one-year deal last summer.

During his solitary season with the Pars, Rooney became part of the squad which clinched the third tier title at the end of the campaign, making a total of fourteen appearances for Allan Johnston’s side.
