York City manager Jackie McNamara really likes the attitude of latest signing Franklyn Clarke.

The 23-year-old 6’1″ former Dorchester Town enforcer realised his dream of a professional contract this week by signing a one-year deal for the Minstermen – and with the option of a further twelve months.

That follows the Liverpudlian impressing during a recent two-week trial at Bootham Crescent.

“Frank has a good engine and he wins a lot of tackles,” McNamara told The Press. “He is a good passer of the ball and gets stuck in. But what I really like about him is that he is not a shirker and he doesn’t give up.

“You find that a lot of semi-professional footballers will give you that,” he added. “They so want that chance to be a footballer and will give you a real hunger. That’s what I was was looking for in new players this summer.”
