PREVIEW: York City Vs Barnsley

9 July 2018

Next up for the Reds this pre-season is a Tuesday night trip to York!

Following a 2-0 victory against Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday in their opening friendly fixture of pre-season, Daniel Stendel takes his side to the capital of Yorkshire for game number two. 

Bootham Crescent is the home of the Minstermen, the 8,256 capacity stadium has been in service since 1932 and is less than an hours drive away from Oakwell. This will be the last season at Bootham Crescent, with a brand new stadium currently under construction in Monks Cross.

Tuesday night's hosts now play in the National League North where they finished 11th last season. 

Finishing bottom of League Two in 2015/16, and dropping back into the National League, York were relegated a year later to the North, for the first time in their 110-year history. 

They did, however, have some success the season before last, as they defeated Macclesfield Town 3-2 at Wembley to lift the FA Trophy. 

46-year-old former Sunderland and Fulham midfielder Martin Gray is the manager of York, having taken charge in October of 2017, guiding the club to mid-table last season as well as leading them to FA Trophy glory at the national stadium.

The Minstermen have a number of experienced players in their ranks, but two in particular will stand out for Reds fans...

Former Barnsley striker Jon Parkin and former winger Simon Heslop both play at Bootham Crescent. 

Heslop began his career at Oakwell in 2004 but over six years at the club equalled just the one appearance before he left for Oxford United in 2010. 

Parkin, now 36-years-old has had a fine career in the Football League, representing a whole host of clubs, including Cardiff City, Stoke City and of course, right at the beginning, his beloved Reds where his career kicked off in 1998. 

City were also victorious in their friendly fixture on Saturday, a 2-1 win away at Shildon with Parkin on the scoresheet.

Match Reports

REPORT: York City 1-7 Barnsley

10 July 2018

Daniel Stendel made it two wins from two in charge of Barnsley, as his side defeated Yorkshire rivals York City 7-1 at Bootham Crescent.

Continuing to tinker with his starting eleven, the Reds Head Coach fielded two different outfield teams in each half, on an evening when all four strikers scored.

With the game struggling to get going, it was the hosts who sparked it in to life in the 20th minute. Josh Law’s cross was cleared as far as Barnsley-born Jon Parkin, whose lofted ball was headed in from six yards by Jake Wright.  

Barnsley then began to threaten as Llyod Isgrove hit the bar, and Kieffer Moore played a through ball to Tom Bradshaw whose effort was well saved.

However, minutes later this same combination pulled Barnsley level. Moore received a throw-in inside the box and although York 'keeper Adam Bartlett saved his shot, Tom Bradshaw was on hand to tap in the rebound and put the Reds level.

Things got better for the Reds before the break as they scored two goals inside a minute. For the first, Bradshaw turned provider, as his well-hit cross was volleyed in at the far post by Brad Potts.   

Shortly after, Ryan Hedges caught the keeper out with a chip from the edge of the box, Bartlett parried the ball but straight into the path of Moore who hammered it in to make it 3-1 to Barnsley at the break.

 HALF TIME: York City 1-3 Barnsley

With Barnsley changing their entire outfield 10 for the second period, Daniel Stendel gave the travelling Reds fans a chance to see the majority of his squad.

Despite the changes, Stendel’s men were in complete control throughout the second half and started off strongly, scoring 10 minutes after the restart. A quick throw-in caused confusion in the Minstermen’s back line and George Moncur found Adeboyejo who passed the ball in to the goal.

As York made several changes, the game slowed down until the final 15 minutes. First, Mamadou Thiam’s corner was handballed by Hamaza Bencherrif and the referee awarded the Reds a penalty. Moncur stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to make it 5-1.

But the Reds weren’t done there, Moncur sprung a counter attack and when his pass found Thiam, the Senegalese cut inside his man and slotted the ball in to the bottom corner.

Barnsley saved the best till last as they tortured the York backline with tiki-taka style football, before Jared Bird’s cute flick found fellow youngster Dylan Mottley-Henry who completed the scoring.

With seven goals scored and all of Stendel's strikers on the scoresheet, there are plenty of positives for the new manager to take in to the next game against Salford.


FULL TIME: York City 1-7 Barnsley


First Half XI: Jack Walton, Jason McCarthy, Liam Lindsay, Adam Jackson, Zeki Fryers, Cameron McGeehan, Lloyd Isgrove, Ryan Hedges, Brad Potts, Tom Bradshaw, Kieffer Moore.


Second Half XI: Jack Walton, Dimitri Cavare, Ethan Pinnock, Ben Williams, Dani Pinillos, Jared Bird, Alex Mowatt, George Moncur, Dylan Mottley-Henry, Victor Adeboyejo, Mamadou Thiam.
