“Charles & Crooks Fantastic” – Martin Foyle York City Manager


This quote from the York City Manager sums up what the Fleet fans know already as Moses Ashikodi fires in the goal that gives the Fleet

another great win inflicting the first defeat in 11 league games  on the promotion-chasing Minstermen. This was a magnificent

and well deserved battling win which left Clint Easton with a suspected fracture of to his eye socket & cheekbone and Dean Pooley needing

two stitches to a head wound courtesy of the elbows of Michael Rankine and the red carded Richard Brodie respectively.

Thanks from Liam for Fans Support


Thanks to all the fans for their email messages of encouragement and support via the Fleet News following our great win at Luton.


I do not underestimate the difference support from you, the committed fans, makes. I really believe there’s enough determination within

myself and the players that we will stay up. It's going to be close and there's going to be a few more disappointments along the line but

having you as our twelfth man makes a difference.


Thanks again from me and all the playing/coaching staff.







Did £13 make a Difference?


The 2 game trial of returning to a £13 admission price came to an end at yesterday’s game. 


What do you think?  Did a lot of the old faces return? Was there a feel good factor created by the reduced price?


It is impossible to make a true judgement just in terms of attendance figures – for example we had a good gate yesterday but in addition to the price factor, 

none of Dartford, Charlton or Gillingham were playing at home and York bought well over 200 fans.


In terms of cash the club have potentially lucrative games coming up, in particular Luton who are expected to bring a 1000 fans – reducing the gate price

by £2 will cost money unless enough fans return. Cash is “King” at the moment with the clubs current difficult cash flow situation.


There are savings all fans can make through the £2 vouchers and, with 5 games left, a 5 match mini season ticket at £11 per game (£5.50 for concessions). However fans many see the

voucher as a nuisance and not everyone can afford £55 up front (£27.50  for concessions) or will not be attending all 5 games.


Whatever the rights and wrongs of the original decision at the beginning of the season we are where we are.


What do you think?

Fleet News doesn’t represent either the Club Board or MyFC but your views will be passed on. These will be taken on board when the 2 game trial

is reviewed. The above points are an attempt to give the bigger picture.
