Bootham Crescent's opposite the hospital too... just on the other side. :kolobok_wink:

Aye but you can't see it from the main road (or the hospital's main entrance).

It’s probably fair to say York overachieved last year. I expect York, Toronto and Whitehaven all to pick up their first win soon.

York yes, but I wouldn't hold to much hope for the other two.

If our first 4 fixtures had been Whitehaven, Oldham, Batley & Sheffield, we might have had 8 points and be right up there, then this thread would have had the title "York for Super League?".

No one is pulling up trees in that second pack and I dont expect the likes of Widnes,  Fax or Bulls to take points off the top three either.  

Its not slipping up vs the lower ranked teams and games vs eachother that will decide that 5th spot.

Depends which way you come from, free parking is available if you know where to look (trade secrets). The park and ride goes to Monks Cross and alot of other transport options are being thought about

What i meant was, with such good transport links and various park and ride schemes, why would anyone feel the need to drive into the centre?

We do each week mainly, because there are 3-4 of us and its cheaper to do that. Depends what you want from the match day experience i suppose

So then, whats the issue with the new stadium? It's literally right next to a park & ride.

No issue for me, but it might be for some people who go to York on the lash and are put off by having to trek 2 miles to the stadium?

It's 2 miles. Ten minutes in a car or a 40 minute walk on a sunny day. Huntington isn't much of a 'trek' from the city centre and there are plenty of bus services that go there, plus a match day shuttle that'll be implemented.

That it is a stadium miles away from anything in the middle of nowhere is a complete myth. Brand new stadium just aren't built in city centres anymore, nor should they be.

Plus, it’s a nice place to be.

Having read comments in the York Evening Press from fans things arnt too good with parking. Two hours and strictly controlled, not much time to attend a game and shop or a meal, cinema, bowling etc. Hopefully it will be looked into (unless it as already been changed). Looking forward to going to the new stadium but will miss Bootham Crescent.

Thats in the neighbouring Vangard shopping centre next door. The stadium itself has 400 parking spaces that will be available to buy online for £5 per game, no time restriction. (Bootham Crescent has 19 spaces)

If we're selling out 400 parking spaces every home game, we'll be doing better than I thought!

Are there any parking restrictions at the park and ride next door, surely people can just use that

Not at the P&R but within the Vanguard complex there is a limited time free.  Which is also the same at the Monks Cross retail park across the road.  Not sure but between the 2 of them you could have maybe 4-5 hours in total.

There are places locally when you can park free and walk down.

Great news. Get them in Super League. 

That’s a good idea actually, P&R could be decided on the quality of drinking and nights out in the town the club are based in. Newcastle Thunder and Sheffield Eagles would be straight in, Warrington and Cas would be in trouble though.

Maybe an unfortunate hangover from when Huntington Stadium opened (on the same site as the LNER Community Stadium, for those who don't know)? There wasn't much infrastructure near the new stadium in 1990 and, of course, it was said to be in Ryedale (which, technically, it was). The club calling itself Ryedale-York for a season or two probably strengthened non-residents' impression the stadium was somewhere near Malton or Pickering!

Talking about York, massive congratulations to Tim Spears (who if plays this weekend) will play his 400th career game

One of the most respected forwards in the Championship, hard as nails - but a genuinely top person too. 

Good luck and enjoy the game Tim.
