DAVID MIRFIN admitted the impact of his heroics at York is only just sinking in.

The 18-year-old defender became a makeshift striker at Bootham Crescent, where he made one goal and scored the other - his first at League level.

"It is something I'll never forget and the high point of my career so far, but it didn't sink in at first," he said.

"The manager just told me to work hard, close them down and have a go, and it worked out brilliant.

"When I first came to the club at Under 14 I was a striker, but I got moved to the back. I have played once or twice for the juniors up front, but I didn't realise the gaffer knew that."

On the goals, Mirfin added: "I thought the keeper had saved my first shot, but next thing Danny Schofield is knocking it into the back of the net.

"Then I got a lucky break to run clear again and I just stuck out a toe and it went in.

"It was an unbelievable feeling, especially as we had so many fans at the game."

Mirfin's family, from Sheffield, missed the match because he wasn't certain of even making the bench.

"They were all listening in and watching for the score, so they knew pretty quickly what had happened," he joked.

"It was great. I just wanted to run to the fans when I scored, but Nat Brown grabbed me straight away and I couldn't get away before the lads arrived."
