York sign Pacquette and Meredith

York City

York City have signed Richard Pacquette and James Meredith as well as re-signing midfielder Levi Macken.

Striker Pacquette, 26, joins from Blue Square South side Maidenhead, while left-back Meredith, 21, has signed from League Two outfit Shrewsbury.

City boss Martin Foyle told BBC York: "Richard's a non-league striker who's scored on a regular basis. He's hungry to get back into full-time football.

"James is dynamite, he has pace, has a super left foot and loads of energy."

Meredith, who spent last season on loan at AFC Telford United, had also been offered a contract by the Bucks.

Having signed two new left-sided players earlier this week and retained the left-sided Andy McWilliams, Foyle now believes he has the right balance in his squad.

We're still chasing another three or four players

Martin Foyle

"Towards the end of the season we didn't have enough left-footers in the side, and that helps with set-pieces.

"We were predominantly right-sided and if you were watching us it wouldn't take a lot to stop.

"Now I think we're balanced, and if we can just get that little bit more height and presence in the side, we'll be off and running."

Foyle is also pleased to commit former Wrexham man Mackin to the club.

"Levi's been a crowd favourite since he's been here, he's put in some great performances.

"The chairman [Jason McGill] really likes him, and, for me, he's not a loud player but he's always a seven out of ten."

Despite the hard work of the last ten days, Foyle said his new-look squad is far from complete.

"Believe me, we're still chasing another three or four players. I want to change the pack around," he added.

"That's what my job's about, trying to put my team out on the pitch."
