  5. Manchester charge The future of York City remains unsolved and there is no guarantee that the club will take part in League 1 in 2017. But if York failed to make the cut, who will take their spot in the third tier? We're told that Manchester Rangers are likely to step up if York is unable to. Rangers are an ambitious club that play their home games at a great venue, Manchester City's academy ground that hold 6,500 people and is located next to Etihad Stadium.. Anyone know how much truth is behind this?
  6. Here is my forecast Toronto's first six fixtures in NO particular order will be South Wales,Oxford,Hemel, Coventry, North Wales and Gloucestershire Old Golds
  7. Looks like York have folded, see my other post
  8. Follow us onTWITTER CLUB STATEMENT By York City Knights | 21/07/2016 CLUB STATEMENT It is with sincere regret that we are to announce that York City Knights will be closing as a business once all legal formalities and obligations have been carried out, which will allow all the players and staff to become free agents. This is done with deep sadness, but with the certainty that we did everything in our power to last through the challenging times since our eviction from the Huntington Stadium in 2014 and the difficult circumstances the club has experienced ever since. The Board of Directors now have no alternative and have been forced to make this very difficult decision. The reasons behind this decision are: It is the belief of the club that the training and playing venue contracts which are in place with City of York Council have neither been adhered to by third parties or enforced by CYC which has made even the simplest of tasks an arduous process. This has left the club in a worse position in terms of the training and playing facilities available to them than either what had been agreed in the interim period or when at Huntington Stadium. The contracts which were signed last year by the Clubs Directors were done so as a matter of necessity to save the club. At this time CYC were made aware of the Boards opinion that the scheme wasn’t sustainable at the new stadium for York City Knights but they were signed on the basis they would be revisited and reviewed to which CYC has shown no desire to fulfill. Although there is a verbal agreement with CYC for a playing venue for next year, there is no signed contract for the 2017 season and due to the lack of consistency in adhering to current contracts we have a lack of trust that this will be forthcoming. Despite assurances from CYC regarding the operating expenditures of playing at Bootham Cresecnt, the loss of other revenue streams and the compensation related to this the club has found the costs of playing at Bootham Crescent to be substantially more expensive than had been indicated and the revenues have fallen well below anticipated targets. The Financial situation within the club shows no promise of improving with a move to the new stadium as the club faced additional overheads and a very limited scope for generating meaningful new income streams. This has and will leave the club financially disadvantaged from its position when at Huntington Stadium in 2014. The Board of Directors would like to thank the Rugby Football League and Chris Hearld for their advice and support through these difficult times, without their assistance the club would have most likely folded in the 2015 Season. We know the vast majority of our supporters and the people of York and beyond will be saddened by this news, we would like to thank you all for your support during the nearly 14 years we were part of the sport in York. The Board would particularly like to Thank James Ford, the Staff, the players and volunteers and wish then all the best for the future. We hope that Rugby League can stay alive in York and someone will come along and succeed in where we could not. The Board of Directors YORK CITY KNIGHTS RLFC The Question is what does this do to the fixtures , are we still at home on Sunday?
