Further info here from match secretary Phil at York

A programme seller will usually sell our matchday magazine ('The Citizen' - it's amazing, the editor is amazing also) inside the ground at the top of the stairs leading up from the turnstile or outside the turnstiles. Each programme costs £2.50.

There is a food kiosk inside the away section of the ground selling a selection of hot and cold drinks and hot and cold snacks, including burgers, pies and hot dogs.

There is no access to the away end for supporters in wheelchairs. Away supporters in wheelchairs will be able to use the dedicated wheelchair enclosure used by home supporters.

There is no car parking available inside Bootham Crescent and limited on-street parking in the immediate vicinity of the stadium.

A lot of fans make use of our special car park scheme we run with York District Hospital which is next door over the railway line. If you go to this link you can read all about it and find a matchday parking voucher to print off.

The Club plan to move to a new Community Stadium in time for the start of the 2019/20 season. You will see why we are in desperate need of a new facility when you visit, the place is falling down despite the club's best efforts to maintain the old stadium, originally opened in 1932. Apologies in advance for the poor facilities you will experience, you won't have to experience them on many further occasions with only two season left before we move. For female supporters, going to the lavatory before you enter the ground is strongly recommended.


At the ground there is the 1922 Bar and this admits away supporters. York City is a friendly club and the only way you can cause offence is to make the mistake of thinking that we are Leeds fans, we most certainly are not and anyone who suggests such a thing will be arrested and shot.

Across the road from the gates is Burton Lane Working Men's Club, cheap and cheerful if a bit grotty. You get charged a pound to go in but probably make the money back in cheap drinks. Very much a darts and doms kind of place, think Droylsden.

If you are coming by train, the York Tap and the Maltings are two popular destinations. I would also recommend a trip down Goodramgate to visit the Old White Swan, Snickleway, Cross Keys and Golden Slipper. These are a stone's throw from York Minster.

Nearer the ground you have the Minster Inn (the best one in York), White Horse, Bootham Tavern and Exhibition. The Tavern has had a refurb so isn't bad now, the White Horse is a bit grim and the Exhibition over-priced.

A bit further, under Bootham Bar, is the Lamb & Lion (take out a mortgage if you are a lager drinker but great beer garden), Eagle & Child, Hole in the Wall, Three Legged Mare and York Arms. If you have a rubbish day out drinking in York then you need to take a look at your life and examine what it's all about. You simply cannot go wrong, there are hundreds of pubs and restaurants.

There is a chippy around the corner from the ground down Burton Stone Lane, as well as a Sainsbury's (for cashpoint), a Heron Food (yes, I know), a Pizza place, a Chinese (a food and a race of people) plus various other shops.


If you need one the best are Station Taxis (01904) 623332, Streamline (01904) 641341 or 659 Taxis (01904) 659659.


If you want to know anything about York, apart from the obvious rude questions about why we're not very good at football despite having a population of 200,000, then I am the Supporter Liaison Officer and you can contact me directly at slo@yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk

Safe trip and all the best.

York City were a League club between 1929 and 2004 and 2012 to 2016. In 1974-75 they competed with Manchester United in
Division 2, holding a place of 5th in October. They lost 0-1 to the Reds at Bootham Crescent in December 1974 to a Stuart Pearson
goal. In October 1995 they against met United, this time in the League Cup 2nd Round, losing 1-3 at home to goals from Paul Scholes
(2) and Terry Cooke, but won 4-3 on aggregate.
Centre Back Hamza Bencherif has represented Algeria at Under-20 level. Striker Jon Parkin scored his 200th senior goal in 2017-18.
The Minstermen signed 4 players from National League Gateshead in the summer, Russ Penn, Jordan Burrow, Wes York and
Macauley Longstaff.
Only the bottom two clubs Hereford and Nuneaton Borough have scored fewer goals than York’s League tally of 18.

FC's match report:

'FC United slip back into relegation zone after defeat at York

FC United of Manchester endured a heart-breaking 2-0 loss to York City at Bootham Crescent on Saturday in a game that could well have gone their way.

A win could have taken the Reds level on points with the Minstermen, but despite putting in a very good performance, FC United conceded one goal each in half to slide into the bottom three.

The start to the first half was cagey, as both teams looked intent on getting to grips with each other. The first chance of the game though, fell to York in the 7th minute. Kallum Griffiths’ shot blazed over Lloyd Allinson’s goal.

As the FC United fans at the away end powered the Reds on, they grew into the game. York were having to do a back-to-the-wall job. After the Minstermen’s defence failed to clear a loose ball, Elliott Simoes’ shot from the edge of the box blazed just over the goal. Unfortunately, that sparked the beginning of the Reds failing to convert multiple chances. That though, also began FC United’s spell of domination in the first half.

Willoughby’s left-footed attempt was saved by York goalkeeper Adam Bartlett, who was at it five minutes later too when he denied Peers. The Bartlett show went on as he made another save off Rowan Roache.

As Reynolds’ men took complete control of the game by stamping authority in midfield, the Reds created three more big chances, but all of them went begging as Bartlett looked invincible in goal.
With FC United pushing on, York had to rely on breaks more often than not. The presence of Jordan Burrow up front helped them, and it was his presence and the chaos it caused that led to York’s goal. While the tall striker missed the header, miscommunication in the FC United defence saw Alex Harris take advantage. One on one with Allinson, Harris’ first shot was saved, but the rebound found the back of the net.

Despite going behind, FC United kept pushing on. A brilliant piece of skill by Simoes saw him go past four York defenders. But the shot at the end of a sensational run was bleak.

The most controversial moment though, came a minute before half time. Willoughby’s shot was saved by Bartlett, Peers had the ball in the back of the net. But the celebrations were cut short, as the linesman had his flag up for offside.

The start to the second half for the Reds wasn’t as good as the first half was, but they grew into the game soon. Adriano Moke’s shot went just wide of Allinson’s goal in the 57th minute as York were inches away from a second.

David Ferguson too came close, but his effort was parried by Allinson. As Reynolds’ men started to look tired, a double change was made in the 66th minute. Ryan White came on for Roache and Peers was replaced by Jack Bannister.

As FC United pushed forward for a leveller, the game became end to end. Senior’s cut inside from the right flank saw him fire a shot at Bartlett, as the ball went out for a corner. The resulting corner saw veteran Stephen O’Halloran’s attempt be saved. Bartlett was at it again.

And Bartlett’s heroics proved critical for York, as Chris Lynch foul in the box saw the home side win a penalty against the run of play. Burrow stepped up to take the spot-kick and hammered it in, sending Allinson the other way.

Despite the Reds’ best attempt to pull one back, York held onto the win.

Man of the Match: Michael Potts put in a very spotless performance. The number six did the simple things right and didn’t put a foot wrong.'
