'Junior League Day' At The Crescent

15th March 2018

York City Football Club is offering junior players from local league clubs FREE admission to the Vanarama National League North game against Southport on Saturday March 17.

The fixture is being billed as 'Junior League Day' and the team with the biggest number of players in attendance will be invited to return to Bootham Crescent to play a game on the pitch!

The offer is open to all players from junior teams in the York & Ryedale Mitchell Sports Football League, City of York Girls Football League, and the YMSV York Minor League.

Players must attend the game wearing their junior league club's shirt and also be accompanied by a full paying adult or adult season ticket holder.

The junior league team with the biggest number of players in attendance will be invited to return to Bootham Crescent to play against a league representative side of the same age group.

All players will be asked to register with YCFC Foundation staff in the car park before kick-off on March 17, giving their name, team name, and playing position.

All those who register will also be issued with a raffle ticket to win footballs donated by the York & Ryedale Mitchell League in a halftime draw.

A club spokesman said: "The introduction of 'Junior League Day' is part of a series of new initiatives which will, hopefully, become a regular feature in the York City calendar.

"We are keen to strengthen our bonds with the local community and draw in new supporters from York and the surrounding areas.

"The club is delighted to be linking-up with the local junior leagues to offer free admission against Southport and want all youngsters to come along wearing their junior shirts with pride.

"We hope that many will go onto become lifelong supporters of the club and return to us in the future wearing City shirts."

Please note there are no tickets for sale in advance and the game kicks-off at 3pm on Saturday March 17. We look forward to seeing you there!
