Scott Kerr made his return to the pitch today after seven months out injured.
The 30-year-old picked up a cruciate ligament injury in the side's FA Trophy semi-final against Luton in March.
Ahead of today's game he told The Press: "It's good to be back and to pull on a York strip again, run out with the lads and play a competitive game.
"I have been back a couple of weeks and gradually increased training, warm up, tackling and into the full game. I am just glad I have come out of it. I have seen the physio and the knee feels great. It is just a matter of managing it and giving the gaffer a little headache."
York returned to the football league by winning the Conference playoffs after an eight-year absence.
