Serie A stars Toldo and Nedved, endorsees for performance football brand uhlsport, despatched the autographed merchandise upon hearing about the Minstermen's plight from their UK-based international press office.

"It gives uhlsport great pleasure to know that we are contributing to the York City Supporters' Trust 'Save City' campaign," confirmed uhlsport spokesperson Paul Reaney. "Francesco and Pavel's admiration of English football is well documented, so when we asked them to send signed merchandise for the 'Save City' campaign it came as no surprise to receive the items by courier the next day."

Alan Fettis, York City's Northern Ireland goalkeeper was equally delighted with the international gesture: "It's great to think that Francesco and Pavel took the time out to help the 'Save City' campaign. It's good to know that players at the very top of the world game care enough about the football family to send signed boots and gloves."

Sophie McGill of the York City Supporters' Trust said, "It's fantastic for the Trust to receive such great support from these world famous footballers. The autographed gloves and boots donated will be auctioned and as a consequence will help to raise essential funds for the Trust in our efforts to secure representation for City fans in the future ownership and operation of the club."
