York City have kept fourteen clean sheets in their last sixteen games and a lot of the credit goes to Charlton loan keeper Nick Pope. The Minstermen have enjoyed a revival which has put them in the play off places after Pope arrived in the nick of time in January.
Manager Nigel Worthington commented, 'Nick's been an absolute revelation to us. At 22 he's barely started his career, but his performances for such a young man have been exceptional, really authoritative. That's a big part of why we crossed that fine line of turning draws into wins.'
Could Pope take over in the Championship next season if Hamer leaves? Probably not, although he would arguably be up to League 1 standard if the Addicks were relegated. But would he want to be No.2 to Hamer or a new keeper?
