Gary Mills hopes York City’s FA Trophy triumph is “the start of new things to come”, with his side a victory away from gaining promotion
The Minstermen, who will tackle Luton Town in a Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final on 20 May, claimed silverware with a 2-0 win over Newport County this past Saturday.
Mills was naturally delighted to snare the club’s first cup since their 1993 Division Four play-off success, and he is eager to complete the “double” when his men return to Wembley to face the Hatters.
“I hope it’s the start of new things to come,” Mills told The Press. “It’s a fantastic club and a fantastic city, with lovely, lovely people.
“We’ve worked hard to achieve what we want to achieve. The ultimate aim is to get out of this league, but we will talk about the trophy today. It feels great, it’s wonderful, and I’m pleased for everybody.”
He continued: “I’ve witnessed as a player winning and losing and York supporters have witnessed losing twice at Wembley, so it’s even sweeter for them that we’ve won the game and won the trophy.
“They will go home smiling. They deserve it. The players deserve it - they’ve worked so hard for me this season.
“We want to win the double at Wembley - we have to finish it off next week.”
