Highly-Rated Youngster Snapped Up By Minstermen

Young winger Vinny Steels has joined York City after leaving league rivals Darlington.

Steels, who is still only 16, had been picking up rave reviews for his performances in Darlington's reserves this season.

City manager Martin Gray told the club`s official website: "I am delighted that Vinny has agreed to join us because he is a really talented young boy with a lot of potential.

"A lot of top clubs have shown interest in him over the last six months - but he feels that his future is best served by joining York."

Hartlepool-born Steels said: "I couldn't turn down the opportunity to become full-time. I also had a chance to go on trial with a Premier League club this week, but I turned it down.

"It is like a dream, really, to get a full-time club. It's fantastic," he added. "I will now work my socks off and, hopefully, impress and get in the first-team".
