York City Supporters’ Trust are pleased to announce that today we have made a £1,000 donation to the York City Vice Presidents’ Covid-19 crowdfunding initiative. We are thrilled that this donation helps to take the total raised over the £10,000 target.

We applaud the Vice Presidents for coordinating this important initiative, which is specifically designed to support Steve Watson in the assembly and development of the squad once football resumes.

Whatever the outcome of the 2019/20 campaign, it is vital that the manager has all the resources possible to bounce back with a strong and effective squad. We encourage all York City fans to contribute whatever they can afford by donating online at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/york-city-fc-support-fund

The Trust board were unanimous in supporting the project, which we meets both our society objects and financial support policies. For the avoidance of doubt, the contribution was met entirely from the profits on recent merchandise sales.

We recognise the huge challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic presents for the football club, players, staff, supporters and the wider community we serve. We would like to take this opportunity to send our love to all those directly affected and to the incredible critical workers to whom we all owe so much.
