York City director Sophie Hicks is expecting a bright future for the Blue Square Bet Premier club.

The Minstermen last week paid Luton Town £60,000 for striker Jason Walker and have sold 1,000 season tickets for the new season.

In addition, plans for a new stadium are going out for public consultation.

Hicks told BBC Radio York: "It's really exciting. Finally things seem to be coming together for us. We want success and a solid future for the club."

She added: "We've sold more season tickets than we did last year, so that's really encouraging. I think there's a great buzz around the club as well because of the new stadium and seeing progression on that front.

"It's always been a difficult struggle certainly since we were relegated from the Football League [in 2004]. It's not been easy for us as a board, but we feel as though we're going in the right direction and everyone at the club wants the same thing.

"That's to get promotion and to be in a new stadium that can provide benefits for our supporters and a strong future for the football club."
