Player-of-the-season Jon Parkin promises he still has the hunger and desire to score goals for York City next season.
The veteran 36-year-old marksman bagged twenty-five this time around despite being sidelined for the crucial business end of the campaign, and having already missed a number of earlier games due to a long-standing knee problem.
Significantly his most recent goal arrived as far back as mid-January during the 2-1 home victory against Bradford Park Avenue, with the Minstermen then managing only a further nineteen goals in the seventeen games immediately following that – including five in the first of them at AFC Telford United – while disastrously winning just four times.
“I 100 per cent want to carry on,” Parkin told The Press. “I played the last 40 minutes on Saturday and, whilst I didn’t enjoy the result, I thoroughly enjoyed being back out there. I’ve still got the hunger and I want to succeed for this football club.
“Ultimately, we have failed. We were set up for promotion and got nowhere near,” he admitted. “It’s been a disappointing season and, even before my injury, I don’t think we should have been in a position where there was a possibility we could slip out of the play-offs.”
