The objective of the meeting on FEBRUARY 19th 2015 was to give Knights supporters the opportunity to see what was on offer for Rugby League at the new stadium. In the same way as York City supporters were given an opportunity to see what was on offer for Football at a meeting in the Pitchside Bar in August 2014.


In terms of what the meeting achieved it highlighted that there is going to be a fantastic facility on the site of Huntington Stadium,albeit with some retail.

A stadium which if the current stewards of the club had the foresight and ambition to move forwards we could have a club challenging for the top,rather than languishing in the lowest league playing at a amateur clubs ground in front of 450 people.


Regrettably some people had a different agenda and used that meeting to enhance their own and others political persuasions to be critical of the Labour council in power at the time.

Yet more inaccurate stuff, but we'll see won't we.
Talking of what people say will happen, what exactly has the optional 'plan of attack' by the people who set up (and I mean 'set up') the November meeting actually achieved in 9 months?

What meeting in November ?

Who are the so called "good" people who are working hard on the future of the club. You cannot be seriously referring to the owner and the board of directors who have done their utmost to destroy professional rugby league in York. What have they achieved in the seven moths since they were appointed?

The team are doing well in spite of the fact that we have the most unprofessional set up. Credit to the players and coaches for that, York City Knights should not even be in this league. If the owner had invested in the future in 2005 when we first got promotion we would be at the top of the Championship looking to enter Super League at the Community Stadium. Instead we are scratching around playing at an amateur clubs ground with sponsors sat on folding dining chairs, the whole set up is actually embarrassing. Take off the rose tinted shades.

York should be playing at York City's Bootham Crescent ground before moving into the new  £40 million Community Stadium being built on the site of Huntington Stadium however for some reason known only to the owner of the Knights, he has refused to sign up to an agreement which will give the Knights a fantastic opportunity to move forward. In the meantime the Knights are playing at Heworth ARLFC which is a superb venue for amateur RL but not worth the £15 being charged by York City Knights.

Because we haven't signed up for a deal that includes use of a stadium that is NOT ACTUALLY AVAILABLE WHEN WE NEED IT

Had the Knights agreed to the contract to play at Bootham Crescent/Communuty Stadium and train at St Johns in October last year the fixtures would have been mutally arranged between the clubs and the RFL to allow maintainance of the Bootham Crescent pitch. As happens at all other shared grounds.
