York return to Football League via play-offs

York's eight-year exile from the Football League is over after they beat Luton 2-1 in the Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final at Wembley. The Minsterman were relegated in 2004 and were beaten finalists two years ago.

Boss Gary Mills, a former European Cup winner during his time playing for Nottingham Forest, said he was finding it hard to control his emotions.

"We're a Football League club, how fantastic does that sound?" he told BBC Radio York.

"I'm holding back tears to be honest. This is for everybody here today and everybody who couldn't make it too.

"To go a goal behind and keep doing what we do best, keep playing our passing game, the lads were so brave."
