What Happened On Saturday In The National League North?

By Sam Elliott

York City are showing that they mean business in the Vanarama National League North this season.

The Minstermen are looking good under Steve Watson - and they made it four wins from five on Saturday afternoon.

York beat Leamington 2-0 as Alex Kempster and Jordan Burrow hit the spot.

Watson said: “I can't emphasise how important a great atmosphere at home is - it could be the extra points that we need and it was fantastic today."

Guiseley are second but despite going ahead had to make do with a 1-1 draw at Boston United.

What a start it has been for newcomers King’s Lynn Town.

They won 3-1 at AFC Telford - their third victory already after winning promotion.
