York City striker Michael Coulson has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

Coulson, whose free-kick in the home win against Newport County last month sealed the Minstermen's Play-Off place, turned in a string of impressive displays during the second half of the season after forcing his way back into the starting line-up.

"I'm delighted to have re-signed for the club," the 26-year-old told the club's official website.

"I think my hard work over the season has paid off and all I wanted to do is stay at York. I can't wait to get started again in pre-season."

He made 36 appearances, scoring seven goals, as Nigel Worthington's side finished the campaign in the final play-off spot before losing 1-0 on aggregate to Fleetwood in the semi-finals.

Coulson started out at Scarborough and after moving to Barnsley suffered a series of career-threatening knee injuries that put paid to his chances at Oakwell.

He joined York in June 2012 after a spell at Grimsby, but missed most of the club's first season back in The Football League due to another cruciate ligament injury.
