Morecambe 1-1 York City

Jamie Devitt's stunning goal helped earn Morecambe a draw against already relegated York.

Luke Summerfield gave the visitors the lead in first-half stoppage time with a brilliant driven effort.

Shortly after the break, Devitt ferociously struck a dipping shot into the top corner to level proceedings.

As both sides pushed for a winner, York goalkeeper Michael Ingham proved the hero as he magnificently saved Paul Mullin's strike.

The draw meant Morecambe finished the season 21st in League Two, while York ended up bottom of the Football League.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York: "I think that match summed up our season, with the amount of chances we had and some of our decision making.

"We were given opportunities to score. Some things were pleasing. Some things weren't. We could have scored another three or four goals at least. It's disappointing not to win it."
