  6. pressing the k key does take along time when you are in a rush !! Or I suspect copying and pasting someone else's comments.
  7. [quote name="shades2" post="3209462" timestamp="14rw feels like the supporters and directors are an extremely close nit group nowadays. Take off those rose tinted shades Colin there maybe some close interaction with a selected few who do not question his motives. The word is knit it has a silent K as in Knights.
  8. The game is being played at Elm Park Way which is the Heworth home ground YO31 1DX The YO32 9JS post code is Huntington Stadium which is now closed as it is to be redeveloped into The Community Stadium.
  9. Positive news has been promised since November when it was stated by Guildford "only the i's to dot and the t's to cross" which turned out to be as true as Neville Chamberlain's "Peace in our time speech" Every few weeks we get the same "good new this week".
  10. That is a question that should be aimed at Ralph Rimmer at the RFL. Heworth is an excellent venue for amateur rugby league but not for a professional fixture with an admission price of £15.
  11. I reply to HolmeKnight, people are staying away because in a lot of cases they simply refuse to support Guildford's Family Enterprise. He had the opportunity to take the club forward and agree to move into the Community Stadium on completion, in the interim playing at Bootham Crescent. The agreement secures the tenancy at the new stadium for 99 years. With FREE training facilities at St Johns College. For whatever reason Guildford decided to turn down the agreement (various reasons have been given) When KISS arranged a public meeting for the council to present the plans to the fans Guildford made threats against KISS unless the presentation was cancelled, he then refused to allow KISS to use the clubs logo and has publicly abused committee members. At the same time other directors were asking for donations from KISS. The coaches and players deserve better than this so KISS provided FREE transport to St Helens and have helped fans get to HOME games with car share.
  12. On behalf of Knights Independent Supporters Society I would like to apologise to supporters of Rochdale Hornets for the incompetence of the Owner and Board of Directors of York City Knights. KISS have been calling for the owner John Guildford to relinquish ownership of the club since March 2015. The full statement sent to the Press on 25th March 2015 It is with great frustration that it has come to this, but despite today's news the Knights Independent Supporters Society feel that John Guildford’s position as owner of the York City Knights is no longer tenable, regardless of him having stepped down as Chairman of the club. For a number of years now it has become clear that the club is not being run as professionally as it should be, and the current stadium impasse has seen many sponsors and supporters become increasingly disillusioned with not just the club, but Rugby League in the city in general, resulting in a crowd of just 360 at the last home game. A figure not much greater than the attendance of the final home game of York Wasps, which ultimately saw the end of the club. We feel the only way the club can progress is under new ownership, be it JM Packaging Ltd or another interested party. We would like to thank Mr. Guildford and his family for their hard work over the last 13 years, but the time has come to step down and allow the club to flourish under fresh ownership. For and on behalf of KISS
  13. For the first 12 minutes we never got out of our own half, full credit for the defensive effort. For a club with the potential of the Knights we should not be in this league, if the owner had any interest in the club we would have kicked on from winning promotion and be well established in the Championship along with Featherstone. What has been achieved there is fantastic, smart ground, good community based club in what is little more than a village compared to York.
  14. KISS have invited Mick Ramsden and his family to the Barbeque on 4th July at Huntington Sports Club where he will received his commendation into the York RL Hall of Fame, Admission is by ticket only £5 (£3 for children) PM me.
  15. It is now up to the owner of the club to arrange such a meeting, I organised a public meeting in February inviting the council to present the facts to supporters, two directors of the club were present both refused to answer questions when asked.
