York City boss Steve Watson has received a boost as he starts preparations for the new campaign with the news that striker Macaulay Langstaff has signed a new contract with Minstermen.
The 22-year-old netted 10 goals for City last season after moving from Vanarama National League side Gateshead and been the subject of reported interest from other clubs during the campaign’s run in.
He also scored two goals during a month’s loan stay with Bradford (Park Avenue).
Langstaff – who scored five goals in seven games following his return from the loan spell – said: “I am really happy to be staying and I know the manager is building a squad that will be up there challenging for promotion next season.
“I enjoyed my first season with the club but the loan move was also good for my confidence. When I came back, I got into double figures and it felt like the season finished at just the wrong time for me!
“Now I am aiming to score 20 goals next season and just hope I can start pre-season in the way I finished off the last.”
York finished this season’s National League North campaign in 12th place in the table, seven points adrift of the play-offs, following a 1-0 win at home to AFC Telford on the season’s final day.
