York City’s new keeper Jason Mooney can be a really ‘big’ hit at Bootham Crescent, according to the club’s goalkeeping coach Andy Collett.

“My ideal keeper would be tall and athletic and he fits the bill in that department” – Andy Collett

The imposing 25-year-old will compete for a first-team spot with fellow Northern Irishman Michael Ingham after recently arriving on a two-year deal from opening day opponents Tranmere Rovers.

“League Two football is very physical with a lot of balls going into the box,” Collett explained to The Press. “If you are tall, it gives you a chance to come and get things. But you need the mentality that you want to come and deal with high balls and not just leave that up to your centre-halves.

“If you have the physique, there are obviously no excuses really,” he added. “It helps that he’s big but it wasn’t a necessity that he was 6ft 8in. My ideal keeper, though, would be tall and athletic and he fits the bill in that department.”
