Dinner Date for Dan Parslow Tribute

31st January 2020

A Tribute dinner will be held to celebrate the professional football career of former York City Centre-back Daniel Parslow on Thursday 26th March at York Racecourse.

A head injury abruptly halted the career of the Welsh Wizard in 2019. Already in the top ten of all-time appearance-makers for the club, Daniel was also a fans' favourite, never giving less than 100% for York City FC, and the club granted Daniel a benefit year, following his untimely retirement from the game, in recognition of more than ten years of loyal service.

Many of Daniel’s former playing colleagues are expected to attend the Tribute dinner and will recount stories about playing with him, and of course the incredible ‘Wembley Twice in one week’ in 2012, where Daniel and the team picked up the FA Trophy before going back seven days later to defeat Luton Town to gain promotion to the English Football League.

Daniel commented “I always enjoyed a fantastic rapport with fans of York City, and I would love to see as many of them there in person on March 26th to thank them personally for their support. I can promise everyone a really great night with some familiar faces - it’s something that no York City supporter should miss!”

The main sponsor for the dinner will be ‘He Loves / She Loves’, and every guest will receive a complementary 12 month membership as a gift worth £39. This will entitle guests to a He or She Loves York Card, which unlocks huge savings in a wide range of local stores, restaurants and a long list of York businesses.

The ticket price also includes a welcome drink, three course meal and a chance to relive some amazing memories, including archive footage of Daniel’s career in a York shirt to be shown on the night, along with memories of Bootham Crescent – likely to have been vacated by the time of the dinner.

Tickets are priced at £50 each and can be purchased directly from the organisers. Send a cheque to payable to the “Daniel Parslow Benefit Year”, plus your details to The Daniel Parslow Dinner, c/o 17 Bedale Avenue, York, YO10 3NG. Payment can also be made in cash or by BACS.

Guests wishing to buy online using a credit or debit card can do so (a small booking fee applies to online purchases). For details, or ticket queries, please email

The dinner is one of a series of events during Daniel's Benefit Year. Daniel is extremely grateful to the Brain Injury charity ‘Headway’, who have been extremely supportive since Daniel's career-ending injury. He will be making a donation to Headway from the proceeds of his benefit year in recognition of the fantastic work they do to help anyone who has experienced a brain injury.
