    Quite agree Fenton Knight. Great turn out who I think appreciated the way the club is being run and the seemingly wonderful team spirit amongst the players.

    October 13th. Grand Final.

    Dear Hemel. I will be in Apsley that evening and wonder if you could tell me of any pubs/restaurants that might be showing the game on Sky in the vicinity. Many thanks. David.

    Oldham at home

    Dear Moorside Oldham made quite a few mistakes today which proved costly. I was convinced the referee did all in his power to get you on the score sheet, which he ultimately did. In the end it proved to be a very exciting game, played in the right spirit and a credit to the greatest game in the world. Good luck to you in the play offs.

    York Game.

    As a Yorkie I believe we got out of jail yesterday and all credit to you. If you log on to the York forum you will see that at least two York supporters over the years have been impressed by the Skolars' hospitality. It was the same yesterday and good luck for the rest of the season.

    R17 London Calling

    Heard in the Gents from a Skolars supporter that it was their best performance for weeks. This coupled with a strangely below par performance from York did make it an exciting game in the end and we were fortunate to win two points. Upwards and Onwards. Very small crowd but the Londoners are always so welcoming and I've always enjoyed watching matches down there.

    Round 7 West Wales Raiders

    Totally agree. It was good to see James shaking the Wales players' hands as they came off and not only were the York substitutions applauded by the crowd but the Wales ones as well.

    Press Coverage.

    The Yorkshire Post is a broadsheet newspaper and half of the front page of their sports section is taken up with a photograph of Joe Porter being congratulated by his team-mates with the caption YORK SCARE DRAGONS. The main headline on the back page of The Press is GRAY: I'LL GO IT ALONE relating to the soccer club. I'll say no more.

    Totally agree with Clarence and Haxby Tyke.

    7 wins in a row...

    I thought London's solitary try was a cracker as were some of York's in the second half especially.

    Attendances - Updated R19

    A good friend of mine has been a York City FC stalwart for many years but has become a little disillusioned of late with happenings on and off the field. He told me that he would be attending the Keighley game and last evening sent me this text and I quote 'Best entertainment I've had at Bootham Crescent for years. Bring on the Catalans.' It would be nice to retain his support and that of 2000 other soccer fans.

    Swinton sunday

    Gav Is there a number I can ring to ascertain whether the game is on or not? Forecast not good.

    Andy Knowles has posted in KISS that the final penalty was taken 10 metres away from the offence. Bootham Crescent is just under 106 metres long so halfway nearly 53 metres. I quote from the Bulls' log. '4.43 pm Bulls penalty on half way as Johnson goes down with cramp. 4.44 pm Keyes lines it up as the hooter sounds. Just the 46 metres away. He scores and is mobbed' which rather seems to prove Andy's point. Superb game with a fantastic atmosphere created by both sets of supporters but just the wrong result but it bodes well for the future.

    Gav. Will season ticket holders receive them in the post or will we be advised when and where to collect them.

    Sorry to raise this again Gav, but there were a few Norman Collier moments on the microphone last week. Very frustrating and annoying.

    One word to describe today's game. Magnificent.

    Thank you very much AB Knight.

    Scintillating first half, bit patchy second. Gav, I know you read the posts on here and I'm sorry to bring this up again but the loudspeaker system yesterday was rubbish in that speech was muffled. I'm going a bit deaf but the other five people in my group are not and they said the announcements were very difficult to catch. I obtained a team sheet from the shop and I'm glad as I wouldn't have heard the names over the loudspeaker system. I buy a programme just to support the club but why aren't team sheets included. The level of the so called music was ok and not intrusive as it has been in the past.

    I thought the referee was excellent today but I do agree that he tended to favour Hunslet a bit in the second half but by then the damage had been done. He certainly was not a clown.
  24. David


    In the first half quite a few supporters were saying 'It's just like watching Cas'. Super stuff. Met Roland Davies and John Stabler in the car park afterwards and they totally agreed.

    Sunday's game.

    York in the second half looked like Cas yesterday. Super stuff. Gav if you're reading this the volume of the 'music' and indeed the announcements was far too high today. As I walked to the ground I could hear the noise from quite a distance. Do York City FC employ the same DJs? Most of my friends and fellow supporters do not mind background noise but not of the content and of the volume today...we like to talk about the game and to be able to hear each other. Otherwise, keep up the good work.
