Cambridge United have re-signed their former striker Michael Gash from York City on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old, who has agreed a one-year deal, netted seven times in 33 starts for York, after joining in a £55,000 move from Ebbsfleet in 2009.

He finished the 2010/11 campaign on loan at Rushden, where he scored six in 18, with four coming in a 5-1 win over Bath City.

"I am very happy to be back," he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"It's one of those moves where I know I've got to prove myself and hopefully this can be the year and the season for me."

Gash's first spell at the Abbey, which was in between two spells at local rivals Cambridge City, lasted just one season and produced two goals from 15 games.

He then moved to Ebbsfleet, where his 11 strikes in 39 league appearances attracted the attention of the Minstermen.

"My time before here didn't really work out for me. Not only have I got a point to prove to manager Jez George, but to the fans as well," he added.

"I don't believe I really got the chance here last time.

"I've got a point to prove to show the fans I can cut it at this level and I can score goals."
