Match ends, York City 2, Woking 0.
York City marked their return to the National League with a 2-0 victory over Woking at the LNER Community Stadium.
John Askey's York came close to opening the scoring in stunning fashion after 33 minutes when Luke James' bicycle kick struck a post.
But the Minstermen only had to wait a further three minutes to take the lead when Maz Kouhyar capitalised on a mistake to run through on goal and place his shot into the bottom corner.
A short-corner routine led to York's second after 56 minutes when the ball was worked to Michael Duckworth to fire into the bottom corner.
