Bit of a Q+A between YorkMix and GLL in this article:

https://www.yorkmix.com/york-stadium-update-fresh-delays-but-no-structural-issues/

Thanks AB. Pity they didn't ask whether a proper scoreboard has been ordered to replace the 32" Goodmans widescreen that has been put up instead.

We'll get there eventually. In the meantime lets enjoy the remaining time at BC and give the lads our most vociferous support.

But the Goodmans might have a super inbuilt DVD player. Hold on though, that would obviously need testing. ?

We already had 3 cinemas , the priority should have been the stadium and it's access roads/car parking , WHY was this not hammered home by the council to Buckingham group. The shell of the cinema should have been an afterthought but the back wall in front of south stand finished first to ensure stadium was finished on time.

I imagine when they invited Cineworld into the complex they would have said we need to open by x date otherwise fines etc

Even with this break in the season if the stadium is finished the test events would be delayed due to ban on large gatherings so a guesstimate when we will actually get to play there.

I certainly see it affecting the City more than the Knights with them being full time and having an academy. I imagine the City wage bill to be quite high in context especially with no gate money

Challenge Cup wise there are 4 championship and 1 league 1 side left in the draw which is a nice odd number for them. It will be interesting to see what they do with that if Championship & League 1 decide to cancel but Super League comes back. One way I suppose is to finish the super league season and bring the challenge Cup back as late as possible or do you cancel it for this year or give super league teams byes (?)? Personally the 1895 Cup would be good as a January friendly tournament playing final in a double header with a home friendly that say Leeds have.

I read in this week's League Express Fordy and Jon Flatman along with some club sponsors had a look round the new stadium last week. Fordy said he was well impressed but when asked about the rumour the Knight's are about to sign Blake Wallace from Toronto he said it's nice that people see we're interested in players of that ilk but the club don't comment on other club's players.

Blake signed a 2 year extension in Nov 2019 so he's with us until at least end of 2021.
