Hinshelwood Is Hoping For More Divine Inspiration!

Adam Hinshelwood says he discovered religion in the closing stages of York City’s weekend win over Aldershot Town.

But he knows there’s got to be plenty more divine inspiration if they are to pull off a great escape and preserve their National League status.

An 89th minute winner from substitute Lenell John-Lewis, who scored with his first touch of the ball, sparked wild celebration.

Hinshelwood toasted his first win after a difficult start and he hopes it can spark a real recovery with the club still in the division’s bottom four.

“After playing that well it would have been really tough for the players to have not won the match,” he said.

“I’m not religious, but I was praying to absolutely everyone! When the corner came in I was hoping we could get it over the line. Sometimes as a manager you need a little luck, a little something from a sub.

“Only football can bring that kind of emotion. I’m just so chuffed for the players and hopefully this can really push us on now.”

York have six fixtures remaining, and the next three are very tough.

It’s a trip to Bromley next, before a home game with champions-in-waiting Chesterfield. They then face FC Halifax Town at the Shay on Bank Holiday Monday.

Where next?
