Gray Urges For Patience Ahead Of Hectic Summer

Martin Gray has vowed to put things right at York City and intends to build his own squad capable of winning promotion.

The Minstermen lost their final game 2-0 at Brackley Town and ended up finishing five points outside the National League North play-offs.

It proved to be a disappointing campaign for York but Gray - who took charge in October - wants to be judged after building his own side this summer.

He told the club’s website: ”I need to apologise to the fans of York City because we haven't achieved and I take the blame for that as manager.

”We haven't achieved and all I can do is apologise and make sure we put it right.

"The fans are frustrated and why wouldn't they be? They go to work, they earn their money, they travel all the way down here and come away with nothing. We have got to put it right. 

"As I said last week, judge me with my own players. Just give me my best chance and I will do that. Hopefully, there will be one or two good signings by Friday. Judge me with what I put out there and then you will see what success is.

"This club has had a tough, tough, horrid time for the last two years and we have got to turn it around."
