    Gray takes over at York with Dave Penney as Sporting Director. A Sporting Director. At a 6th tier club. We are ridiculous.

    Harrogate, who have won four in a row, move clear at the top after Salford lose at home. Northern League alumni Blyth and Spennymoor in 3rd and 4th, in better shape than Darlington, who were promoted to this level earlier than them. York 6th, which is a play-off place under this odd system.

    Crazy week at Darlington, losing two sets of managers. We appear to have made ourselves spectacularly unpopular with them after taking Gray, which was a fairly clear case of tapping up, and subsequently a player (with one or two more to follow). Word is the fee for the player was 60k, which seems utterly absurd at this level. Oh well, it's not a popularity contest I suppose, and we've lost plenty of players/managers in equally frustrating circumstances down the years.

    Boston United lost 3-2 at home yesterday and the managers was resignation (from earlier in the week) was accepted. Boston in dire straits. Need to find someone to come in and steady the ship which has been sinking since Dennis Greene's tenure.

    Darlington lose 3-0 at home. Starting to look like relegation possibilities.

    Looks like Darlington intend to buy Reece Styche from us.

    The fee has been agreed (though not disclosed as yet), with just personal terms to be agreed, though apparently those are far in excess of anything we could offer. They have also signed Luke Trotman and Greg Mills from Nuneaton, the same club they took their new manager from.
    Basically all three signings have come about by Darlington wafting enough cash at the players to turn their head and persuade them to request a transfer.
    I don't suppose the Darlo fans on here know where all these new-found riches have suddenly appeared from, do they? With the start they've made it would be unlikely they will win the title, so they are basically investing all this money in the hope of getting into the play-offs.

    New owner at North Ferriby – the Allam progeny have handed the club over to a local football bloke (and ex-NFU player). They are apparently debt-free, but can't see this improving their stock greatly on the field, at least in the short term.

    ...and he's not messing about, the new Ferriby owner: confirmed on his first day he'd consider moving the team to North Hull, and on day 2 has sacked the manager.

    The York City comedy roadshow keeps a-rollin' along... striker Gary Martin, at the club on a short-term contract between stints in Belgium and Norway, has had his contract terminated after turning out for his mates' Sunday League team, with footage of him and his Sunday teammates singing songs about how the York manager is a 'f***ing paedo and a nonce' being posted on Instagram. Seems like a smart chap.
