Former Scarborough striker Michael Coulson is facing a dilemma after helping fire current club York City into League Two play-off contention.

Coulson, who was nominated for the League Two player of the month award after scoring crucial goals against Portsmouth, AFC Wimbledon and Exeter, will be forced to miss his own stag do if City secure a play-off spot.

“If we get into the play-offs I’ll have to miss my own stag do, which isn’t ideal,” said Coulson.

“There’s 30 of us due to go to Butlins, but if we stay in the play-off places I’ll have to give it a miss as we’ll have the first leg of the semi-finals that weekend.

“That’s just the way football goes. My best man Joel Ramm will no doubt understand that.

“He wants me to be successful and you’ve always got to put your career first.

“There’s been a bit of banter about it, but it’s all good fun.”

Coulson attributes his surge in form to a return to his favoured position up front, having been utilised on the wing for the last couple of seasons.

He added: “I’m really happy with how things are going.

“I have managed to cement my place up front of late and it’s always good to score goals.

“I started my career as a striker at Scarborough and I feel that is my best position.”

York currently sit in the last play-off place following a stunning resurgence of form under March’s manager of the month Nigel Worthington.

“We were struggling and now we’re in the hunt, it’s been brilliant,” added Coulson.
