Evening Press Comment

Local Press praises City fans

Under the headline "Fan Power really works", on the day it was revealed that City's Trust had gained the top award for Trust of the Season 2003, the Evening Press also included a Comment about City's fans.

The whole item is not repeated here, but here's some extracts...

"How long ago it seems now. York City fans seem to have been fighting to save their club forever, but only two years has passed since Douglas Craig dropped his bombshell."

"They say you find out who your friends are in a crisis. As it turned out, York City has thousands of friends. Other clubs would die for such loyal supporters. But they proved to be much more besides: organised, vocal, passionate, resourceful. Within weeks, a York City Supporters Trust had been set up. And throughout the subsequent storms it has remained a calm, rational voice."

"These incredible achievements have now been recognised, as YCST was named the best in the country."

"Now the Trust has the small matter of staving off the club's imminent homelessness. All possible avenues are being explored."

"Best of all, every fan can have their say. They need only join the Trust, speak at its meetings and vote for the board. They can even stand for election themselves."

"Gone are the days of fans impotently chanting their discontent from the terraces. Today they have a real voice in the modern democracy that is York City."
