Series 9 - Episode 2: Russell Penn

Published on: 4th August, 2022

When Russ joined York City in January 2014 the brief was to help steer the club away from relegation but an incredible 17 game unbeaten run was formed and the club sneaked into the League Two play-offs. Sadly this trajectory couldn't be sustained and Russ ended his time at Bootham Crescent captain of the team that fell out of the football league two years later. Here he speaks in detail about his two spells with the minster men, what the club meant to him as well as recounting his wonder strike versus Morecambe in 2015. The interview also covers his wider career with Burton Albion, Cheltenham and Kidderminster Harriers who he played for and now manages.
