Goalkeeper Michael Ingham is determined to lead York City back into the Football League.

The Northern Ireland international came desperately close to achieving his objective last season after the Minstermen were only defeated in the play-off final at Wembley.

And he is resolute in his desire to go that one-step further this time around in what will be the seventh successive campaign of non-league football at Bootham Crescent.

Former Sunderland shot-stopper Ingham is also keen to hold onto the captaincy of the side after taking over the role last term.

“Getting back into the Football League is the reason why I came here two years ago,” he told The Press. “That`s not happened yet. But I`ve signed for another two years and I would love to be the goalkeeper that helps to get the club back into the League again. And to be the captain of the side that wins promotion – that would be a great honour.”

York open their latest league programme with a visit from Kidderminster Harriers in just over a week’s time, when expectations will once again be high amongst their supporters following the progress made last season.

But the 30-year-old was sensibly approaching it in a methodical fashion and eager to keep things very much in perspective during the opening few weeks.

“I am not going to say we are going to do this, we are going to do that,” continued Ingham. “What I will say is let`s wait until around October time and see just where we are then and see how other teams have fared in the league.

“Then, like last year, if we see if we have nothing to fear then I will revise what we should be able to go and do.”
