Club announcement - as reported in the Evening Press

YORK City have announced that full details of the deal to secure a long-term stay at Bootham Crescent should be revealed in two weeks' time.

The news comes just 72 hours before the date on which the football club could have been evicted from their 72-year-old home if an agreement with previous landlords Bootham Crescent Holdings had not been reached.

Legal reasons have delayed any announcement so far but the club are hoping that supporters will be informed of the club's future plans on Friday, June 11.

City managing director Jason McGill said: "The legalities surrounding the deal have almost been finalised and we are now close to making an announcement. We were expecting to reveal the news sooner and it has been a frustrating time for everyone, as we are keen to let our supporters know the full details as soon as possible.

"The postponement of the announcement is purely due to a delay in the legalities, rather than any complications surrounding the deal."

City's lease with BCH was due to expire on Monday and McGill added: "It is frightening to think we may have been without a home on May 31. Huntington Stadium was hugely problematic for a range of reasons and was never the preferred option for the club and our supporters."
