Away day trou­bles mount up for York

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE NORTH: York City equalled their worst post-War run of away league de­feats at the end of a cal­en­dar year fol­low­ing a 2-1 loss at Blyth Spar­tans.

Six straight Na­tional League North dis­ap­point­ments on the road saw York match the club’s mis­er­able away fi­nale to 1965, with for­mer loan striker Bradley Few­ster rub­bing salt into the wounds by grab­bing an 83rd­minute win­ning goal.

Few­ster latched on to a long free-kick that was taken quickly and net­ted as half the away team were still cel­e­brat­ing a dis­al­lowed Ma­caulay Langstaff ‘goal’. Ear­lier, Sean Reid’s penalty was wiped out by a goal from Jake Wright.

Ben McKenna struck in stop­page time to ex­tend table­top­ping Brad­ford Park Av­enue’s un­beaten run to an 11th league game dur­ing a 2-2 draw at Bos­ton.

Lewis Knight opened the scor­ing with a spec­tac­u­lar free­kick, goals from Ben Davies and Max Wright edged the Pil­grims in front, be­fore McKenna’s late equaliser.

Guise­ley missed out on a first home league win since Oc­to­ber 13 when Con­nor Hamp­son grabbed an 89th-minute equaliser for Al­trin­cham.

Ear­lier goals from Niall Heaton and Will Hat­field had over­hauled Ash­ley Hem­mings’s opener.
