Former York City midfielder Kane Ashcroft has died at the age of just twenty-nine after a long battle with cancer.
Ashcroft made his debut as a teenage substitute against Leyton Orient in the penultimate game of the fateful 2003-04 campaign as the Minstermen were relegated from the Football League.
The Leeds-born playmaker then started their final fixture at Swansea City and also twice appeared in the Conference the following season.
He is survived by a young family and former Bootham Crescent colleague David Stockdale reacted on Twitter: “R.I.P Kane Ashcroft shared some great memories @yorkcityfc. Thoughts with your family… Sad sad news.”
