York City took another giant leap towards a return to non league football after falling to a 3-2 defeat to promotion chasing Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

Goals from Jamille Matt, Reuben Reid and an own goal from William Boyle gave The Pilgrims a 3-0 half time lead. Russ Penn and Luke Summerfield both netted second half strikes for York City to reduce the deficit but The Minstermen were unable to recover from a first half collapse at Home Park.

The result hammers a further nail in the York City Football League coffin and after the match fans took to Twitter to give their views on their side’s display.


York City are next in action on Saturday when they face promotion chasing Leyton Orient at Bootham Crescent.
