YOUNG York City fans will be able to train alongside the club's players this summer as part of a unique new initiative.

The Foundation department's Train and Play the City Way programme offers a four-day chance for children to experience the daily routine at the Minstermen's official training ground at Wigginton Road.

All those taking part will also eat alongside the first-team players and enjoy a question-and-answer session with the manager or captain.

There will be a total of 16 courses, spread across several venues around York and the surrounding areas, with a variety of courses on offer, including fun, elite, girls only and goalkeeping.

Courses are for ages four to 12, or seven to 12 for the specialist courses.

Sessions last from 10am to 3pm, with prices starting from £10 per day for those who take advantage of the early booking discount.
