Communications director Sophie Hicks is predicting a bright future for York City.

“I think there’s a great buzz around the club as well because of the new stadium and seeing progression on that front” – Sophie Hicks

The Minstermen have already sold 1,000 season tickets for the new season and last week spent £60,000 on highly-rated Luton Town striker Jason Walker.

Meanwhile, manager Gary Mills has also targeted more “significant” signings as York look to improve on last season’s eighth-placed finish, while plans for a new stadium are being made public later this week.

“It’s really exciting. Finally things seem to be coming together for us. We want success and a solid future for the club,” Hicks told BBC Radio York. “We’ve sold more season tickets than we did last year, so that’s really encouraging. I think there’s a great buzz around the club as well because of the new stadium and seeing progression on that front.

“It’s always been a difficult struggle certainly since we were relegated from the Football League,” she added. “It’s not been easy for us as a board, but we feel as though we’re going in the right direction and everyone at the club wants the same thing.

“That’s to get promotion and to be in a new stadium that can provide benefits for our supporters and a strong future for the football club.”
