York City must take their search for another goalkeeper elsewhere following the recent departure of long-serving Michael Ingham.

The Minstermen were interested in England ‘C’ international Peter Crook but the Harrogate Town net-minder has since been offered a trial at Premier League newcomers Burnley.

Some reports also linked the highly-rated player with both Leeds United and Swansea City, according to the Harrogate Advertiser, although his club have strongly denied those claims.

Crook only signed a one-year deal with Harrogate in May and the National League North outfit are therefore entitled to a fee should the young prospect depart the CNG Stadium.

Meanwhile, McNamara won’t be persisting with recent trialist shot-stopper Polish Ed Wilczynski, previously with Huddersfield Town, nor Gaelic football goalkeeper Michael Quinn.
