The 2011–12 season was the 90th season of competitive association football and eighth season in the Football Conference played by York City F.C., an English football club based in York, North Yorkshire. Their eighth place finish in the 2010–11 season meant it was their eighth successive season in the Conference Premier. The season covers the period from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012.

Gary Mills, who was starting his first full season as manager, signed 11 players before the close of the summer transfer window. York occupied a play-off position for most of the season, eventually finishing the Conference season fourth in the league table. York played Mansfield Town in the play-off semi-final, drawing 1–1 at home in the first leg before Matty Blair scored to give York a 1–0 victory at Mansfield in the second leg. Luton Town were York's opponents in the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final at Wembley Stadium, and a 2–1 victory meant the club was promoted to League Two, returning to the Football League after an eight-year absence.

Eight days before the team's play-off success, York City won their first national knockout competition, and first trophy in 19 years, with victory in the 2012 FA Trophy Final. At Wembley, York defeated their Conference rivals Newport County 2–0 with goals from Blair and Lanre Oyebanjo. The team were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth qualifying round, after being beaten 2–1 away at Wrexham. Blair was the club's top goalscorer after scoring 20 goals, with 10 in the league, eight in the FA Trophy and two in the play-offs. Scott Kerr was voted Clubman of the Year for his first full season with the club.

Background[edit]

Just over a month into the 2010–11 season, manager Martin Foyle resigned with York 15th in the league table.[2] Tamworth manager Gary Mills took over and after pushing for a play-off place the team finished the season in eighth place.[3][4][5] Released following the end of the season were Neil Barrett, Chris Carruthers, Leon Constantine, Liam Darville, Michael Gash, Levi Mackin and Andy McWilliams.[6][7] George Purcell, Michael Rankine, Jonathan Smith, Peter Till and Greg Young also left the club after departing for Dover Athletic, Aldershot Town, Swindon Town, Fleetwood Town and Alfreton Town respectively.[8][9][10][11][12] Jamal Fyfield, Michael Ingham and James Meredith signed new contracts with York, with David McDermott being retained on non-contract terms.[13][14][15][16]

New additions in defence ahead of the season's start included goalkeeper Paul Musselwhite from Lincoln City and defender Lanre Oyebanjo from Histon.[17][18] Midfielders to sign were Patrick McLaughlin from Newcastle United, Adriano Moké from Jerez Industrial, having had a spell at the Glenn Hoddle Academy, and Michael Potts from Blackburn Rovers, with winger Matty Blair joining from Kidderminster Harriers.[19][20][21][22] Strikers Ashley Chambers, who had been on loan the previous season, and Liam Henderson signed from Championship sides Leicester City and Watford respectively.[23][24] Striker Jason Walker was the only player signed for a fee, having cost £60,000 from Luton Town.[25][26]

New home and away kits were introduced for the second successive summer, the home kit featuring red shirts with a white 'V' shape decoration toward the top of the shirt, light blue shorts with white trims on each side and white socks.[27] The away kit included light blue shirts with the same 'V' shape decoration, white shorts with light blue trims on each side and light blue socks.[27] Pryers Solicitors continued as shirt sponsors for the third successive season.[27]

Review[edit]

August[edit]

Jon Challinor was signed days after playing against York for Kettering Town.

Walker scored an 83rd penalty kick and a 90th minute header to give York a 2–1 victory away at Ebbsfleet United in the opening game of the season.[28] A second victory came in York's first home game of the season, a 3–1 victory over Barrow, with Walker, McLaughlin and Blair scoring.[29] Former Stockport County winger Danny Pilkington was signed on non-contract terms following a trial with the club.[30][31] The team's first defeat of the season came after going down 1–0 at home to AFC Telford United, after former York striker Craig Farrell scored an 87th minute goal.[32] York responded to this by defeating Kettering Town 5–1 away from home, with Boucaud, Walker and Moké scoring in the first half and debutant Pilkington scoring the fifth in stoppage time.[33] Shortly after this game, Kettering midfielder Jon Challinor was signed by York on a contract until January 2012.[34][35] York picked up their first clean sheet of the season after drawing 0–0 away at Fleetwood Town.[36] A second successive defeat at home came after Alfreton Town won 1–0 at Bootham Crescent, with former York player Levi Mackin scoring the only goal with a penalty.[37]

September[edit]

Walker scored what proved to be only a consolation after scoring in the 84th minute against Tamworth, with York losing 2–1 after conceding two penalties, both of which were awarded from fouls committed by Chris Smith.[38] York's first victory in four games came after Jamie Reed scored an 88th minute winner to give the side a 1–0 win at home to Bath City.[39] This was followed by a 3–0 win away at league leaders Wrexham, with first half goals from McLaughlin, Chambers and Reed handing York victory.[40] York then drew 2–2 at home to Darlington; Reed opened the scoring in the second minute with a strike into the top corner from the edge of the penalty area, and in the 79th minute Walker scored with a curling shot into the top corner to equalise for York.[41] Chambers and Walker scored first half goals as York defeated Luton 3–0 at home.[42] After a four-game unbeaten run York were defeated 3–2 away at Gateshead, with former York loanee Jon Shaw scoring their three goals, and Walker and a Curtis own goal making up York's tally.[43]

Following defeat to Gateshead, York beat Stockport County away 2–1 after Blair and Walker scored second-half goals.[44] York then went on to beat Braintree Town 6–2 at home, with Chambers, McLaughlin, Fyfield, Walker and Moké scoring.[45] Chambers scored in the 62nd minute with York's goal in a 1–1 draw away at Southport, before the home side scored an equaliser nine minutes from time.[46] Chambers went on to net an 86th minute winner of a 2–1 victory at home to Grimsby Town, with Walker having scored with a bicycle kick for York in the first half.[47] Walker scored twice at home against Cambridge United to give York a 2–2 draw, with the equaliser being scored direct from a free kick in the 89th minute.[48] York then beat Hayes & Yeading United 4–2 away, with Walker, Challinor, McLaughlin and Chambers scoring.[49] York were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth qualifying round after losing 2–1 away at Conference league leaders Wrexham, with McLaughlin scoring York's only goal.[50]

Free agents Chris Doig, a Scottish defender who previously played for Aldershot Town, and Ben Swallow, a Welsh winger who previously played for Bristol Rovers, were signed on contracts until the end of the season.[77] Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson was signed on loan until the end of the season.[78] York progressed to the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy after Ebbsfleet were beaten 1–0 at home in the third round, courtesy of a second half Blair goal.[79] Reed and Blinkhorn scored late goals to give York a 2–1 victory at home to Stockport, with the visitors having taken the lead earlier in the second half.[80] York suffered their first defeat in eight league games after losing 2–1 at home to Gateshead.[81] Progression to the semi-final of the FA Trophy for the third time in five seasons came after York defeated Grimsby 1–0 away in the quarter-final, in which Scott Kerr scored his first goal for the club.[82]

March[edit]

April[edit]

McLaughlin's third goal in three games came in a 2–1 defeat away at Newport County, with the home side scoring the winner 20 minutes from time through Romone Rose.[92] York lost the second game in a row when league leaders Fleetwood won 1–0 at Bootham Crescent, in which former York striker Richard Brodie scored the only goal in the 73rd minute.[93] Blair and Oyebanjo scored in the second half to give York a 2–0 victory away at Alfreton.[94] Swallow was prematurely released by the club because of an internal issue.[95] York drew 1–1 at home to Newport with Walker scoring a second half equaliser, which was his first goal from open play since 22 October.[96] Musselwhite was forced to make his debut in York's visit to Cambridge due to an injury to Ingham, with York winning 1–0 through a second half Walker goal.[97][98] York were guaranteed a play-off place after beating Braintree 1–0 away, with Tønne scoring his first goal for the club in the 75th minute.[99] The league campaign concluded after a 1–0 victory at home to Forest Green, with Moké scoring in the 82nd minute.[100] The result meant York finished fourth in the Conference table and that they would play third-placed Mansfield in the play-off semi-final.[100] Following the game, Kerr was named as the season's Clubman of the Year.[101]

May[edit]

Matty Blair scored the winning goal in the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final.

York drew 1–1 with Mansfield at home in the first leg of the play-off semi-final.[102] Mansfield took the lead in the 26th minute after Exodus Geohaghon's long throw was headed in by Ross Dyer, before York equalised after Geohaghon scored an own goal from a Challinor cross.[102] York defeated Mansfield 1–0 after extra time in the second leg after Blair scored a header from a Walker cross in the 111th minute.[103] With an aggregate score of 2–1 York progressed to the play-off final to play Luton.[103][104] The club won its first national knockout competition, and first piece of silverware in 19 years, after Newport were defeated 2–0 in the 2012 FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium, with Blair and Oyebanjo scoring in the second half.[105] Days after the Trophy victory, plans for a community stadium to be built at Monks Cross, which would be shared by York City and rugby league team York City Knights, were approved by City of York Council.[106]

On 20 May 2012, York regained their Football League status with promotion to League Two after a 2–1 win over Luton in the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final at Wembley.[104] Luton took the lead when Andre Gray scored in the second minute, before Chambers scored the equaliser with a low shot from a Smith hooked cross.[104] The winner came two minutes into the second half after Blair, despite being in an offside position, scored from close range after latching onto Parslow's header.[104] After the match, Blair was quoted as saying "I scored the goal and it feels unbelievable but I'm not taking anything away from the other lads today. The back five, and Daniel Parslow in front, defended like heroes and were brilliant all game".[104] Mills summarised York's achievements by saying "To come to Wembley two weeks running and do the double is an incredible feeling. In fact, with the ground announcement, it’s been a terrific treble and probably the best hat-trick ever at York City Football Club".[107]

The day after the play-off final thousands turned out to witness the club's players, management, staff and directors ride through York city centre on an open-topped bus,[108] in celebration of what The Press described as "an unsurpassed nine days in the Minstermen's proud existence".[107]

Summary and aftermath[edit]

York occupied a play-off position for the majority of the season, briefly rising as high as first place during the first month of the season while never dropping below 14th.[109] For the third time in the space of six seasons, York had a better record away than at home in the league.[110] The team won 12 matches, drew eight and lost three away, compared to winning 11, drawing six and losing six at home.[110] Ingham, McLaughlin and Meredith recorded the highest number of appearances during the season, each appearing in 55 of York's 58 games.[111] Blair was top scorer in all competitions with 20 goals, followed by Walker, whose 18 goals made him York's leading league scorer.[111][112] Three other players, Chambers, McLaughlin and Reed, reached double figures.[111]

Prior to the club's Football League return, York released Ashikodi, Blinkhorn, Bopp and Brown, while Meredith, Moké and Pilkington left on their own accord for Bradford City, Cambridge and Kidderminster.[113][114][115][116][117] Challinor, Chambers, Doig, Fyfield, Ingham, Kerr and Parslow signed new contracts with the club.[118][119][120][121][122][123] New players to join were defender Danny Blanchett from Burton Albion, midfielders Lee Bullock from Bradford, John McReady from Darlington and Jonathan Smith from Swindon, winger Michael Coulson from Grimsby and striker Oli Johnson from Oxford United.[118][124][125][126][127][128] Midfielder Tom Platt was promoted to the first team squad from the youth team after signing a professional contract with the club.[129]
