Gary Mills thrilled to reach last four

York City manager Gary Mills expressed his delight after the Minstermen secured their spot in the FA Trophy semi-finals.

Former Lincoln City captain Scott Kerr's solitary strike was enough to send Grimsby Town crashing out of the competition after a closely contested quarter-final.

Mills was impressed by his side's performance, especially after the midweek Blue Square Bet Premier defeat to Gateshead.

He told the Grimsby Telegraph: "I am thrilled for a lot of reasons. We got through to the semi-final of the Trophy firstly, and secondly with the response to losing.

"There was no fear there and it proves the players are up for the challenge.

"We didn't worry about losing a game and bounced back. I thought we were superb on the day.

"In the first 10-15 minutes we got in and around their 18-yard box about eight times.

"We didn't quite work the keeper enough but I can't be critical of the players.

"It's the first defeat for Grimsby in a long time. I thought we deserved it, too."
