York City is a young club compared to most. Although there was football in the city earlier the York City we have today was formed on March 31st 1922, initially joining the Midland League and playing at Fulford Gate. They tore up no trees, never finishing higher than sixth, but the mysteries of election saw them replace Ashington in Division 3 North in 1929, 24 votes to 14.

In 1932 York moved to Bootham Crescent, where they remain to this day - though on that more later. They remained In Division 3 North, rarely troubling either end of the table - though they would have required re-election in 1950 if they hadn't conveniently chosen to finish bottom the same year the Division was being expanded - until the end of regionalisation, when they went into Division 4. Their greatest moment to that point had come in 1955 when they became the first ever Division 3 club to reach a F.A. Cup semi-final, taking eventual Cup winners Newcastle United to a replay. That debut season in Division 4 saw York finish third and gain the club its first ever promotion. Unfortunately they were relegated back at the end of the following campaign. Another single season in Division 3 was achieved in 1995-66 but they finished bottom and then for the next three seasons had to apply for re-election after each campaign. (Please don't let him start on the iniquities of the election system or we'll be here all day, ed.)

The Seventies began more brightly with a promotion to Division 3 for the 1971-72 season and then on into Division 2 after coming third in 1973-74. They spent two seasons there, but two consecutive relegations saw them back in Division 4 in 1977-78 seeking re-election again. 1981 saw another call on the old-boy network to keep them away from Non-league status.

The mid-Eighties was another good time for the Minstermen. A Championship won by a massive 16 point margin in 1983-84 was followed by a run to the F.A. Cup 5th Round, defeating Arsenal on the way and taking Newcastle United to a replay, in 1984-85, and again to the same stage the next season when Liverpool needed two attempts to remove the Third Division side. However 1987-88 saw them relegated back to Division 4 once again, and there they stayed until 1992, mainly in the lower reaches.

The finale of the 1992-93 season saw York at Wembley facing Crewe in the play-offs. In a dramatic penalty shoot-out it was City who went up. Manager Alan Little kept them there for six years, including the odd last day escape. When they did go down it was one of those 'never in the relegation zone until the last few minutes of the season' scenarios.

At the turn of the Millennium, York were facing big problems off the field of play as well. In December 2001 chairman Douglas Craig announced the club was for sale, stating that if a purchaser was not found by the end of January the club would resign from the Football League at the end of the season. The eventual buyer was the Cheshire based owner of the B & Q Racing Team, John Batchelor. Batchelor was yet another of those bullshitters who soil football, with their promises of new stadiums and Premiership football tripping so easily off forked tongues. Of greater importance for the real future of York City wasn't the pathetic delusions being peddled by Batchelor, but the formation of a Supporters' Trust. During the 2002-03 season York was taken into administration, and by the New Year players wages weren't being paid.

On March 27th 2003 the Supporters' Trust took over the running of the football club. That stabilised things a touch, but not enough to stop them losing their Football League status at the end of the 2003-04 season, giving them an eight year stay in non-league football. In the summer of 2006, Jason McGill, who had served as a Supporters' Trust director but also had his own private money, bought the club from the Trust, eventually becoming Chairman in 2006. He also helped the club take back control of Bootham Crescent, ending a worrying situation where York's supporters had lost control of their ground in the wake of their financial problems, with previous owners having separated the football stadium assets from the club itself and fears that they might become homeless.

With the club now back on firmer footings, things began to improve on the field of play from that point onwards as they began to set their sights upwards in the Conference league. They were beaten by Oxford United in the 2010 play-off final, but in 2012 they triumphed by a 2-1 scoreline over Luton Town to take them back into fourth tier football. Since then they've managed 17th (2012-13), 7th (2013-14) and 18th in League Two. They're still one of the smaller clubs in the division, but with McGill being a long-serving supporter, and the ground now being back in club hands, their future looks more certain.

On the horizon is a potential move from Bootham Crescent - plans for a new 8,000 capacity York Community Stadium were approved in March 2015, with a 37 million development in Jockey Lane, Huntington intended to serve both the football club and rugby league side York Knights. Digging was due to commence during the summer of 2015 although this has been delayed due to the finalisation of contracts with the City Council, and they currently project that they will complete the new stadium midway through the 2016-17 season, suggesting that a move during the summer of 2017 will be on the cards, although York are still hoping for a December 2016 completion.

General


Bootham Crescent is tightly hemmed in by terraced housing and parking is a question of finding an on-street space, or walking some distance from one of the number of pay and display car parks in the area. Be aware that charges are lethal - don't be surprised if you're paying in excess of 10.00 for a Saturday afternoon stay, unless you're pretty much turning up for the game only.

By Road

From the South (A1M-A64): Exit A64 at signpost 'Leeds, York A64' and at the roundabout turn right onto the A64. Exit A64 after 9.3 miles (signposted York (North) A1237, Harrogate) onto the A1237. Go straight on, remaining on the A1237 for 5.2 miles, over three roundabouts and over River Ouse, to fourth roundabout. Here, turn right (signposted York A19) onto the A19 Shipton Road. At lights after 1.6 miles by village green, go straight on (signposted City Centre). After 0.2 miles turn left by 'The Burton Stone' pub into Burton Stone Lane. You'll see the ground on your right.

Parking

There is no parking for supporters at Bootham Crescent and you will not find street parking anywhere close to the ground. As you're close to the city centre, your only options are to either choose a city centre car park, or to use one of the park'n'ride facilities. The nearest public car parks are listed below:

1. Marygate Car Park: Frederic Street, York, YO30 7DT. Take the street called Marygate diagonally opposite Sainsbury's on Bootham (A19) and it's at the end of that road in a side turn. This is around 800 yards from the ground. 350 spaces.
2. Bootham Row Car Park: Bootham Row, York, YO30 7BP. Take the street down by the side of Sainsbury's on Bootham (A19). This is around 800 yards from the ground. 100 spaces.
3. Union Terrace Car Park: Clarence Street, York, YO31 7ES. Opposite York St John's University on the B1363. This is around 800 yards from the ground. 145 spaces.

All three car parks are open 24 hours a day, and charge different rates for day time and evening, so check the signage or the linked web pages for specific charges. For day time expect to pay 8.40 for a 4 hour stay, or 10.50 for a 5 hour stay. For evenings it's about 2.00 provided you arrive after 6.00p.m.

By Rail

Bootham Crescent is a 10-15 minute walk from York Railway Station. If you're happy to take the short walk, then turn left out of the station into Station Road, past the Royal York Hotel. Take the 1st left (signposted Leeman Road Industrial Estate, National Railway Museum). At the end of the road, in front of 'Esplanade' car park follow the road round to the left, passing the Royal Mail depot. Just before the railway bridge, turn right along pathway and take the footbridge over the river. Take the path between railway and Marygate car park. At end of car park turn left through underpass and right into Bootham Terrace. At Main Road turn left, then take the 2nd right into Bootham Crescent, leading directly to the ground.

By Bus

If you're already in the city centre then getting a bus service is a bit pointless. However, the nearest bus services to the ground are the No.14, followed by the No.12 which both run to the east of the ground. Timetables can be found here.

There is also a Park and Ride facility for those who don't want to drive into the centre of York. Unfortunately as evening services end at 7.45p.m. it's rather redundant for our 2015-16 season visit.

An exiled supporters club for York City supporters based in London and the south. They're like the Capital Glovers only with northern accents.


York City Supporters Trust
A good example of why football clubs should have Supporters Trusts - they were there to save their club when it collapsed, and owned the club in 2002. They've since reduced that holding to a 25 percent stake in the club.

York City : Food & Drink
General :

York is a tourist honey pot and most of the city centre has been preserved, well compared to many other places. It is therefore stuffed to the gills with 'traditional' pubs and more eating places than you could shake a stick at. In 1996 the first brewery for forty years opened in York. The York Brewery Company runs three pubs in the city, two of which are detailed below, and supplies to around four hundred other outlets, mainly across the North of England.

As you can see from the huge list below, York is a mecca for good pubs and real ale. If you want pubs close to the ground, then the Bootham Tavern, Burton Stone Inn, Minster Inn are the three you need to look at. If you're coming in via the railway station then The Maltings and the York Tap are two key ones. But the majority of the other pubs are within or around the old city walls, and so are easy to walk. On a previous visit we did a pub crawl hugging the city walls (and by the end, we were literally hugging the walls - you will not run out of pubs to visit here!)

Club Bar :

York City have recently (August 2015) relaunched their supporters social club under the name of The 1922 Bar. It is being managed by an external company. For midweek matches the bar will be open from 5.30p.m. whilst for Saturday matches it will open at 12.00 noon. On both occasions it will close at 11.00p.m. Away fans are welcome to enter the bar - there is no admission charge.

Inside the ground itself there is a food kiosk selling hot and cold drinks and hot and cold snacks, including burgers, pies and hot dogs. As far as we can tell there is no alcohol available to away fans inside the ground.

Local Pubs :

Ackhorne: Small friendly bare-boarded pub tucked away in a narrow cobbled side street. Opens 12-11. Food at lunchtime. Beer is Deuchars IPA, Rooster's Yankee and guests. Does cider. Also a range of Lindisfarne fruit wines.
Ackhorne, 9, St Martins Lane, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 6LN. Tel: 01904 671421. Map: Click Here.

Blue Bell: Tiny pub in the heart of York - 50 people and it would be standing room only. A listed building, with the pub almost completely unchanged since its last refurbishment in 1903. The CAMRA brigade drool over this establishment, and it has won bucket loads of awards. If you're not into museum pieces it's not the place for you - but the beer is more than reasonable. Abbot, Bombadier, Camerons Strongarm, Deuchars IPA, John Smith's and Taylor Landlord are the regulars, plus a guest. No food. Open 11-11.
Blue Bell, 53, Fossgate, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 9TF. Tel: 01904 654904. Map: Click Here.

Bootham Tavern: Just ten minutes walk from the ground. One of the more partisan pubs in the area, this is largely recommended for home supporters and away fans not wearing colours.
Bootham Tavern, 29 Bootham, York, North Yorkshire, YO30 7BW. Tel: 01904 631093. Map: Click Here.

Brigantes Bar: West side of the city walls and only a street or two away from the railway station, and therefore around 15 mins walk south of the ground. This is a fairly plain minimalistic looking bar with smart decor, which concentrates on its ten handpumps of real ale to pull in the punters, mostly from Yorkshire and other northern breweries - examples include Black Sheep, Leeds Brewery, Great Heck, Okells and York Brewery. This is part of a small group of pubs called Market Town Taverns. Food is served from 12.00 noon until 2.30pm and 6.00p.m. until 9.00p.m. on weekdays, whilst on Saturdays and Sundays they run straight through without the afternoon break. The menu is either middle-of-the-road pub menu stuff aimed at the lunchtime market with a main course costing 6.95, or you can opt for more gastro/restaurant style options that are a bit more ambitious on the palate costing around 11.00.
Brigantes Bar, 114 Micklegate, York, YO1 6JX. Tel: 01904-675355. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Burton Stone Inn: Five minutes walk from the ground, you pass this if you follow directions to the ground from the A19 on the north side of town. This large pub is described by Fanzone as having "decent ale at reasonable prices".
Burton Stone Inn, 34, Clifton Road, York, North Yorkshire, YO30 6AW. Tel: 01904 622945. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Duke Of York: Right in the middle of the city, and about 15 minutes walk from the ground, where Low Petergate and Colliergate meet. Eight handpumps give a good real ale choice, with Leeds Beers given around half of that line, whilst the rest are given over to guests. Food is up at the 'gastro' end of things in terms of prices - expect to pay about 10.00 or a little more for a main course. Opening hours are 11.00a.m. until 11.00p.m. except for Fridays and Saturdays when they get an hour late extension, and Sundays where the hours are shortened by 60 minutes at each end.
Duke Of York, Kings Square, York, YO1 8BH. Tel: 01904-676065. Email: info@lbdukeofyork.co.uk. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

House of Trembling Madness: How can you refuse visiting a place with a name like that? Located just south of York Minster, and therefore north-east of the station, this is partway between the city centre and the ground, around 5-10 mins walk south of Bootham Crescent. This is part-pub, part-shop and part-apartments giving you a place to drink, a place to sleep and then a place to carry home a whole load of drink-related goodies in your car after the day is over. Craft beers, and real ciders are added to by a food menu that is equally unconventional - a daily stew, various fish, meat and cheese platters served with salads and bread, or pie, mash and peas if you want more typical pub grub. Food served from 10.30a.m. until midnight. The pub is open from 10.00a.m. until midnight, except for Sunday which sees them open an hour later.
House of Trembling Madness, 48 Stonegate, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 8AS. Tel: 01904-640009. Email: info@tremblingmadness.co.uk. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Last Drop Inn: One, the first, of the three York Brewery Company owned pubs in the city. Opening is 11-11, with food served until 4.00 p.m. Beers are mainly from the brewery's own stable, with their four standards, Bitter, Stonewall, Terrier and Centurian's Ghost as regulars. The pub also stocks the company's seasonal ales - should be Swing Low when we visit - and guests.
Last Drop Inn, 27, Colliergate, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 8BN. Tel: 01904 621951. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Minster Inn: Not far from the ground - off the other side of the A19. Open 11-11 Fridays and Saturdays. Family friendly, with children welcome, and a no-smoking room. John Smith's Bitter and Magnet, plus an interesting range of guests.
Minster Inn, 24, Marygate, York, North Yorkshire, YO30 7BH. Tel: 01904 624499. Map: Click Here.

Postern Gate: Wetherspoon down in a new development in the city centre along the River Foss, but within a stone's throw of things like Clifford's Tower and Fairfax House. Large and modern. Children allowed.
Postern Gate, Piccadilly, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 9NX. Tel: 01904 526220. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Punch Bowl: Second of York's Wetherspoons. Just off the A19 ring road, close to the railway station. In a more 'traditional' style than the Postern Gate (above). Well above average Wetherspoon, with a far bigger and more interesting range of beers than the usual rather tired 'house' selection Wetherspoon seem to be increasingly restricting themselves to these days. Children allowed.
Punch Bowl, 5-9, Blossom Street, York, North Yorkshire, YO24 1AU. Tel: 01904 666740. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Rook and Gaskill: Lawrence Street is the A1079 that runs from the edge of the city walls on the east side. As such this is one of the furthest pubs listed on this guide at about 25 minutes walk, with the pub one of the few to lie outside the city walls and not be on the Bootham side. Eight cask ales, seven keg offerings and three real ciders make it worth the walk. They also provide continental pilsner lagers that will be a little different to what you're used to. Food is fairly simple and its based around numerous burger and hot dog options with add-ons like chips and onion rings. Open from 4.00p.m. until 12.30a.m. on most days, but on Friday and Saturday it's from noon until 1.00a.m.
Rook and Gaskill, 12 Lawrence Street, York, North Yorkshire, YO10 3WP. Tel: 01904-655450. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Royal Oak: Three room establishment. Family friendly and open 11-11. Food is well recommended and served from 11 a.m. - 8.00 p.m. House beers are Greene King Abbot and Tetley Bitter, plus guests.
Royal Oak, 18, Goodramgate, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 7LG. Tel: 01904 653856. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Saddle Inn: For those looking for a hostelry away from the city centre this might prove the choice. Spacious lounge bar with open fires, a dining area that welcomes children, a pool table and, if you really want, petanque in the gardens. Opening on Saturdays is 11.30 a.m - 11.00 p.m., with food at lunchtimes and from 6.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. in the evenings.
Saddle Inn, Main Street, Fulford, York, North Yorkshire, YO10 4PJ. Tel: 01904 633317. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Swan Inn: A Tetley Heritage pub, popular with the younger crowd during the week, but generally quiet at weekends. Beers are Taylor Landlord, Abbot, and Tetley, plus guests. Opening is 4.00 p.m. - 11.00 p.m. weekdays, but from noon on Saturday.
Swan Inn, 16, Bishopgate Street, York, North Yorkshire, YO23 1JH. Tel: 01904 634968. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

The Golden Ball: Not far from the Ackhorne (above), in the Bishopgate area of the city centre. This is a large pub divided into four rooms, one with bar billiards and another with a couple of televisions. The toilets are outside. Pub opening is 4.00 p.m. - 11 p.m. weekdays, but from 12.00 on Saturdays. A drinking not food pub, with reasonable prices, and Ruddles Best, Marston's Pedigree, several varieties of John Smiths, and Charles Wells Bombadier on tap. The guest was a very good dark mild when we visited. Clientele 100% male, and pretty middle aged - on a Saturday afternoon at least. York's Pub of the Year 2004.
The Golden Ball, 2, Cromwell Road, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 6DU. Tel: 01904 652211. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

The Hop: Another pub right in the middle of the city centre - Fossgate runs north east of the Coppergate shopping centre, about 15 minutes walk from the ground. This pub combines real ale, pizza and live music and was co-founded by indie band Embrace's drummer Mike Heaton. The interior is very art decor, showing that it is a modern pub trying to look like it has character but possibly overdoing it. But by the time you find the 11 cask pumps of beer you won't care, with an additional nine keg offerings. They combine Ossett beers, with microbreweries, and also throw in three real ciders. There is also stonebake pizza and other associated Italian-style add-ons for food. They open 12.00 noon until 12.00 midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, closing an hour early on other days. Note that they are a bit picky on football colours - you'll be allowed in pre-match in club colours provided you don't look too much like a large all-male beer-swilling mob. After games, they're more strict on this, whilst on non-match days they won't admit people in sportswear or club colours.
The Hop, 11-12 Fossgate, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 9TA. Tel: 01904-541466. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

The Maltings: Close to the railway station. Loved this pub. Youngish clientele in the main. Longstanding real ale venue. Black Sheep Best Bitter is the house beer, with a changing selection of five guests from small and micro-breweries. Four ciders are stocked - two keg and two straight from the barrel. When we were there the two from the barrel were Ruby Tuesday and Cheddar Valley. Opening is 11-11, with food served 12.00-2.00 p.m. on weekdays and up to 4.00 p.m. on Saturdays. Portions are generous!

Three-Legged Mare: Another York Brewery outlet (see the entry for the Last Drop Inn, above, for beer details). Nine ales are always on, and food is served until 3.00 p.m. Opening is 11-11. Limited menu, with a few hot dishes. The rounds of sandwiches were very generous. Children not allowed. On our visit they had some problems in the kitchen and the pasta dishes took half an hour to arrive. Not that we were worried, but they gave the whole party a free round of drinks. Top effort. Note: the toilets are down a steep tightly winding spiral staircase.

Wellington Inn: Back street local that has been owned by the Samuel Smith's Brewery since 1887. Saturday opening is 11 a.m. - 5.00 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. - 11.00 p.m. There are three rooms, one the public bar and one with a pool table. Family friendly. The beer is Samuel Smith's Old Brewery Bitter.

York Tap: Those of you who have waited for a train in London Euston may know the Euston Tap well. This is one of a growing number of railway station 'Tap' pubs, which give you what you need when your train is late. They claim 32 draft beers, ciders and ales are available, plus a range of bottled beers, and you'll find it right next to the station.

Likelihood the Natives Will Understand You :

No problem. York almost passes for civilized, despite being oop North. The accent may be tyke, but the mocha latte and ciabatta is the same as any down South.

Top-Tip :

Stay the weekend or the night. York is a great place - full of history and pub crawls till you do crawl.
