Nothing new. This has been mentioned and shown on here many times in the last year.

It’s a shared stadium with the rugby club.

Hopefully keeps a Club like York City going for another 100 years.

Going to have a few lost balls on that rear sloping roof behind that goal, almost reminds me of Fred and his coracle at Gay Meadow back in the day.....

I believe it is owned by the local authority, too, as a community asset.

Got a bit confused there with the New York Stadium a la Rotherham. 😁
One is the New York stadium and the other is the new Community Stadium at Monks Cross for both York City Football Club and York City Knights RLFC.

Looks full though.

if if wasn’t for Saint Matthew we would be playing in something like this. I wouldn’t mock too hard.

Maybe not even that.

Afaik, the local Council put a lot of money into this (several million quid?).

And while LBH was willing to accommodate BFC as best they could, this only went as far as good will and co-operation, not hard cash.

York City suffered the attentions of property developers and asset strippers over the years and it is fortunate that they’re still around and a full time professional club albeit at national league north level. The new ground should give them a better base but it’s in an awful location on an out of town retail park. Better there than nowhere mind.

it is definitely a case if there but for the grace of god....,

I hope it goes well for them. We haven't crossed paths with York City for some time but the games with them in the 60s were tough affairs and their centre half, Barry Jackson, was a hate figure at GP much like Jack Howarth at Aldershot, and Fletcher at Bournemouth more recently.

What I remember of York City was their goalkeeper Tommy Forgan when they reached FA Cup Semi Final; in bygone days

I remember going to a really freezing cup game we won 0-1 with 10 men after our big black forward (not sure who it was then) being totally pole axed. When we left he was being carefully transferred into an ambulance behind the the main stand. I think Steve Hunt scored via a breakaway in the last 5 minutes. Remember being given mushy peas on my fish and chips to eat with my fingers. Very Messi......

Remember a game at York with Stephen Hunt scoring a last minute winner and celebrating by climbing the pitch side fencing. Bad tempered game and remember shouting cheat at the player who got Andy Frampton sent off with a dive. Checked teams and Mccammon got first in a 2-1 win.It was 2002.

That still qualifies as the coldest game I've ever been at. Busting for a pee in what was an open drain and unable to get my fingers to work to uncover all the layers I had on... nearly embarrassing.

I seem to remember a 1-0 win at York (1967?), league game, John Docherty cut in from the wing about 10 minutes in and scored a cracker. It was rather a while ago so I might have got that wrong.

This thread title, for someone reason, gives me a headache.

My brain immediately makes associations with all of the below and it confuses me:

New York City Stadium -https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City_FC_stadium

New York Stadium -https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Stadium

The new York City stadium -https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/York_Community_Stadium
