Blyth Spartans midfielder Kieran Green has joined the Minstermen, the clubs have confirmed.
He impressed as the Spartans made the play-offs and the former Gateshead player links up with his old manager as City look to build a team good enough to challenge for promotion.
Green said goodbye to the Blyth fans on the club’s website.
He said: “I would like to thank everyone associated with Blyth Spartans. I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club.
“When I arrived I hadn’t played many first team games, Blyth gave me the opportunity so I thank the club for that.
“I was happy to play a part in the season we had, and although we came short in the play-offs I will always look back at the season with good memories.
“Another big thank you to the fans for taking me in and showing the team great support.
“I wish the club and the best next season.”
