Former striker Scott Fenwick says he wasn’t allowed enough opportunities at York City but hasn’t ruled out returning to this country.

The 27-year-old marksman is currently leading goalscorer for Naxxar Lions in Malta with six goals in eleven appearances since joining on a two-year deal in September.

Gateshead-born Fenwick was released by the Minstermen at the end of last season after managing just three goals in twenty-nine appearances following his arrival from Hartlepool United in July 2016.

His most significant contributions while at Bootham Crescent proved to be kick-starting a dramatic late comeback in a 2-2 draw at Sutton United in March, before a week later converting a vital extra-time penalty at Lincoln City in the FA Trophy semi-final.

“If you look at pre-season at York, I played every game and scored eight goals,” Fenwick told the Northern Echo. “I went into the season feeling positive and fresh, we had five points from three games and we were unbeaten.

“When Gary Mills came in and the standard of players increased I felt I would get more opportunities to score goals,” he added. “However I became even more of a bit-part, sometimes making appearances in the 87th-90th minute of games. I wasn’t given much of an opportunity to help the boys avoid relegation.”
