York City have made their fifth signing of the Summer, signing Anthony Straker from Southend United.
The 25 year old joins the Minstermen on a two year deal.
Anthony Straker said about joining the club: "For me the decision to join the club isn't one I could really turn down, especially after seeing how York finished in the league last year getting to the Play-Offs when I was with Southend. It's a great chance for me to start a new chapter and couldn't turn it down. I hope to show people what I am capable of doing, using my pace and getting at defenders and hopefully doing well."
York City Manager Nigel Worthington said: "I'm delighted to get Anthony on board. He's a player who caught the eye over the course of the season, not only when we've played them but when we've had Southend watched. Hopefully he can come and enjoy his football at York. He's got great pace, he's got a direct style of play and I think he'll be a great addition to the squad."
