Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

FA CUP: York City have racked up three con­sec­u­tive home wins for the first time in a year and a half af­ter knock­ing St Ives Town out of the FA Cup.

Jor­dan Bur­row’s se­cond-half brace, fol­low­ing a ninth-minute Jake Wright strike, smoothed the Min­ster­men’s pas­sage into the fourth qual­i­fy­ing round against a vis­it­ing team that could not muster a shot on tar­get.

Wright opened the scor­ing when he chased Bur­row’s header to beat Sam Wil­son.

Bur­row put the out­come beyond doubt with his two goals be­fore the hour mark – head­ing in from David Fer­gu­son’s cross be­fore blast­ing home af­ter be­ing teed up by Alex Har­ris.
