No I'm having the last word, and that word is "Murmuration"

At the end of the day, the club should have made sure everyone was aware that the entrance wasn't going to be open anymore. Then I wouldn't have to be having this mongoloid conversation with you.

Agree with YCKonstantine, but the club need to be as welcoming as possible to get more people through the gates. If this was someones first experience they might not have come again. 

 

No point reducing entry fees for friendly matches from a commercial point of view if you are not going to promote to a wider audience as most diehards will still pay the standard fee. It would be great if the deal for the York Select game could be rolled out at other fixtures where amateur clubs can purchase upto 100 tickets each at £10 for adults with the amateur club retaining £5 from each ticket sale. Hopefully this would encourage more to attend that would not normally so seen as an additional £5 per person on top of the usual home crowd.

Anyone who has ever met John Guildford would know he would see that as a tenner per person loss. And bearing in mind alot of regulars would swap their kids for one of the cheap tickets, it would be a loss to some extent.

Just spotted that - if Patto gets 8 tries & 12 goals next time round he just might get in......

 

See Whitehaven got team of the week - think our lads were a bit unlucky there

Oh cryptic one, put us in the picture..

 

Ryan Boyle & Ashley Gibson played for us last night along with Joe Pickets, Ben Reynolds & Harry Carter

 

Looks like we won 36 - 18 by the twitter stuff - which is really funny as the Leigh message board were talking about their team 'blowing' the scoreboard - good to see a lack of respect been paid back in full...

 

**Just spoken to a very chuffed under 20's coach - Harry Carter outstanding (Leigh couldn't handle him at all), Ben Reynolds had a great game, also Josh Nathaniel.

Boyle & Gibson's attitude outstanding - played it as if it were a Super League game - other York lads performances lifted by been along side these SL lads

After the last 3 years, no respect for the badge is due. Respect will be earned until "it's only York" becomes "oh s--t, it's York".

Then we'll go bust ;)

Good to see 'The Hitman' is back. Can you imagine getting the ball, managing to avoid Morrison and Patto and then running into Picketts.

New song for Gary to play at home games - 'Nowhere To Run, Nowhere To Hide' !

Hello.

Quick question, I am just wondering why there is one less fixture this weekend with yourselves, Oldham & another team not playing. Is this weeks, yorks week without a game or has your fixture been moved?

only Bailey played for us and had a good game.

CLARKSON played for Leeds at St Helens on Friday night.

Anyone else noticed that the new batch of referees we are seeing in Championship 1 are playing Super League rules ie - missing all the forward passes.
