York City boss Martin Foyle celebrated his first year at the helm by seeing his side move third in the Blue Square Premier with a 1-0 win over Gateshead.Since taking over from Colin Walker he has overseen an FA Trophy final appearance and league survival. [LNB]He told BBC Radio York: "It has been hard and I won't hide from the fact the job was a lot bigger than I thought. [LNB]"But we've got fantastic bonding in and around the place and I think that could take you places." [LNB]He added: "It's surprising when you all muck in together - good team spirit and we've got a good board. [LNB]"The McGills (the club's owners) have been absolutely fantastic to us and hopefully we've rewarded it a little bit. [LNB]"But it all goes down to everybody. It's not certain individuals or me or the coaching staff." [LNB]As well as a good run in the league so far this season York are also having a run in the FA Cup, and play Cambridge United in the second round. [LNB]Foyle says after a tough season last year it has been the players that have been the difference this season. [LNB]"It's nothing else," he said. "We haven't done anything different. [LNB]"We've worked on certain things but at the end of the day a manager is only as good as his players."
