ED­DIE Nolan is happy to keep con­tribut­ing in York City’s mid­field af­ter he was de­ployed in an un­fa­mil­iar role last week­end.

The 27-year-old made his full de­but for the Min­ster­men in their 3-0 vic­tory over New­port County, fea­tur­ing in a hold­ing mid­field role.

More used to lin­ing up at full-back, Nolan ad­mits he was out of his com­fort zone but the for­mer Scun­thorpe man is con­tent to pitch in wher­ever man­ager Russ Wil­cox de­cides to use him.

“I’ve usu­ally been used as a full-back in the past,” he said.“I’ve never been at a club that plays with wing­backs, apart from on a cou­ple of oc­ca­sions, but I don't mind play­ing there.

“I’ve filled in as a midfielder a few times dur­ing my ca­reer but not on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. I’m happy to play there as well, though.”

York be­gan the week­end 17th in the ta­ble and Nolan is ea­ger to help them im­prove upon that sooner rather than later.

“We’re very solid at the back and we showed we are ca­pa­ble of scor­ing at New­port,” he added.
