Smith skippered the Minstermen to four wins and two draws from their final six matches as the club retained their Football League status.

The 31-year-old played a key role in York's successful relegation battle, including a stoppage-time goalline clearance in their last home game to ensure a 2-1 victory over Southend and scoring the game's only goal in their 1-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge on the final day.

The former Reading, Tamworth and Mansfield defender, who made 50 appearances for York this season, scoring four goals, signed a new one-year deal with the club earlier in the week.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
