York City buy Burnley's Adrian Randall
Wednesday 27 December 1995
York City, of the Second Division, broke their club transfer record for the second time in four months by paying a six figure fee for Burnley midfielder Adrian Randall. Randall, 27, travelled to Bootham Crescent yesterday to sign for the Minstermen, ending the manager Alan Little's search for an experienced midfield player. Randall is expected to make his debut at home to one of his former clubs, Bournemouth, on Saturday. The fee is believed to be around pounds 140,000, easily beating the pounds 90,000 paid to Luton in early September for the striker, Rob Matthews.
