Match of the Weekend 4 – The Conference Playoff Final – York City 2 – 1 Luton Town

“We’re a Football League club, how good is that?” – Gary Mills’ reaction to York City’s return to the league was typically unshowy, embodying the calm, quiet way the Minstermen have gone about their season. There were no tears, no whoops of delight and not much in the way of a wild celebration, just an acknowledgement of how much it means for the club to win. It is almost ironic that the only fuss York City have caused this season came in the form of Matty Blair’s winning goal, which looked at least a yard offside. Mills’ response to the goal: “Was is offside? Who cares. It’s a goal and a huge goal. Mistakes happen all the time.” After Andre Gray fired Luton ahead with barely two minutes on the clock things didn’t look great for York. Gray, signed from Hinckley United in the Conference North, was there to collect Robbie Willmot’s flick, with the crossbar helping the ball over the line.

Non-League Videos Of The Week: 18-03-2012

Cup finals are in the air for our Non-League Videos Of The Week for this week. In the FA Trophy, a place at Wembley was at stake as the second leg of the semi-finals was played between Luton Town & York City, and Newport County & the only non-Blue Square Bet Premier side left in the competition, Wealdstone. York City led 1-0 after their first leg at Bootham Crescent, whilst Newport County led Wealdstone going into the second leg. Our third match is a small departure from usual, a semi-final from the FA Sunday Cup, as Hetton Lyons Cricket Club, from Hetton-le-Hole in Tyne & Wear, and Liverpool-based Oyster Martyrs in a match played at Billingham Synthonia FC earlier today. Finally, we have a match from the Blue Square Bet South, between title-chasing Dartford and a Havant & Waterlooville side that is battling against relegation. Our thanks, as ever, go to those that take the time to record, edit and upload these videos. You can follow Twohundredpercent on Twitter by clicking...

With this in mind, it’s time to take a quick look around how some clubs are doing in their pre-season friendlies.

Anyway, as a teaser for the start of the new season, here’s a quick look at: York City vs Hartlepool United, Woking vs Charlton Athletic, Bury Town vs Colchester United, Chorley vs Bolton Wanderers and Mansfield Town vs Notts County.
