Help Save York City Knights

30 March 2015 - 02:34 PM

I’m sure you'll all be aware of the issues currently surrounding York City Knights, for info it’s all detailed here:
 
 
 
The city of York council gave full planning permission on Friday for a new 8000 capacity community stadium, this planning permission was given despite a 29 page objection being submitted at the 11th hour by the owner of York City Knights, John Guildford. Guildford also went on to speak at the meeting, lodging his objection to the stadium in a less than eloquent manner. These objections proved totally fruitless and only further enhanced the councils position against him.
 
Our first league game is on Good Friday and as of now we have nowhere to play home games and absolutely no chance of anywhere to play with the current owner in place due to his actions.
 
We have a local businessman, Jason McGill, who is also owner of York City FC wanting to take over the club but as of yet Guildford has refused to enter into negotiations with him. The RFL are fully aware of his intentions and business case but will not assist in a takeover, if this takeover doesn’t happen we’re basically stuffed. No pro-RL club in York.
 
Some fans have set up a petition and while it might not do anything (1m+ signatures didn’t keep Clarkson in a job!) it something to put forward to the RFL to show what Rugby League supporters want for the club in York.
