Former York City goalkeeper Michael Ingham has defended the approach of previous manager Gary Mills following comments made by one-time team-mate Danny Galbraith in his latest online blog “Life Off The Pitch”.
The 27-year-old Scot had spoken about how it was regular practice for the Minstermen’s first-team squad to be taken to the local pub on the day before away fixtures. And then backed his words up by saying it was “abnormal activity” and that the team had subsequently failed to win any of those games.
However, former Northern Ireland international and ‘Wembley-twice’ hero Ingham was having absolutely none of it, while hailing Mills, who famously triumphed at Wembley with York in both 2012 [twice] and 2017, as an exceptional manager.
“Danny didn’t get it!,” he responded on social network site twitter. “Talk to players from double winning squad! Done it at right times! One pint before a game was all about team spirit!
“Painted in wrong picture! What a manager!”
Agree brilliant manager!

Ask the Liverpool or Forest players who won multiple European Cups – Mills being one of them. Different era? Yes, but winners are still winners
