From the Boardroom - Steve Beck's rallying call
From the Boardroom - Steve Beck's rallying call

Extract from City's match programme on 4th April

On behalf of the Board and the Club I would like to welcome the Directors, Management, Players (especially Jon, Graham and Martin), the Staff and supporters of Macclesfield Town to Bootham Crescent for this crucial fixture.

This time last year the Rescue Package to Save City had just been completed.

In 2003, York City had not only faced losing its Football League status and its historic home, but was on the brink of extinction altogether. However, as history now shows, the fans raised an amazing 1/2 million to enable the Club to live to fight another day. In 2004, once again, Your Club needs to take strength from the collective spirit and passion of the supporters.

Ahead of this season, with the odds stacked against the Club in so many ways, it was always expected to be a financial struggle, whilst at the same time the battle for survival at Bootham Crescent was also being fought behind the scenes.

And on-the-pitch, survival in Division Three was the primary aim. After punching above our weight for the first half of the campaign, clearly, the results on-the-pitch over the past couple of months has been a great disappointment to everyone to the players, management, the staff and the Board and to the fans.

Now, over the remaining few weeks of the season, your York City Team needs your encouragement and support.

Whether at Bootham Crescent or on away territory, the Red Army can help make the difference for the Club to gain the vital points for survival.

These will be my last programme notes for this season, so please let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a good summer and look forward to seeing you all back here next season.

Sing up and be loud, for We Are York and remember above all Keep the Faith!

Steve Beck
