Mirfin makes York loan move
mansfieldtown.net, Fri 1 Feb 2019

Defender David Mirfin has joined National League North outfit York City on loan until the end of the season.


The 33-year-old has been on the road to recovery since suffering a knee injury at Blackpool in December 2017.

The experienced centre half has recently returned to training and joins a Minstermen side in 19th position in National League North.


David Flitcroft, after the Macclesfield game, 2 Feb 2019:
“We’ve assessed Mirf [David Mirfin] now over three or four reserve games, and he’s still short for what we’re trying to achieve - the games are getting bigger."

York Manager Watson was pleased with the Mirfin's performance following his arrival on loan from Mansfield.

“He got 90 minutes under his belt and the more games he plays the better and fitter he will get,” Watson reasoned. “He reads the game really well.

“He’s also a good talker, which is one of the reasons we brought him in and he’s great around the place. I want him to organise and be my voice on the pitch and he kept a good line at times too.”
