YORK City has shut its doors until further notice under Government and National League advice in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The club report they will continue to support players - who have been given electronic advice on keeping fit - and staff, who are working from home or self-isolating.

Community work has been put on hold but the club were keen to stress social media channels will still be open.

Club chairman Jason McGill said: "York City FC is more than just football, it is a support network and, for many, a family.

"On behalf of myself and the board, to our fans, players and staff: 'Stay safe and look after each other'."

A statement on the club's website reads: "Following recent guidance from the Government and the National League, York City Football Club will close until further notice.

"The club will, however, continue to support its players and staff remotely during these challenging circumstances.

"Players have received electronic information and advice in relation to health, wellbeing and (if appropriate) keeping fit while in self-isolation. The manager, club doctor and coaching staff will remain contactable via phone and email.

"The club has also re-communicated government advice and is offering ongoing support to staff, who are now working from home or self-isolating where necessary.

"Our work in the community, via the YCFC Foundation, has also been suspended until further notice. However, their important social work will continue remotely as foundation staff continue to offer support to its vulnerable community members.

"We do also, remain open on our club social media channels and welcome fans to use that forum to support each other.

"In advance of the club re-opening, a date which we can’t confirm currently, Bootham Crescent and our training ground will have a thorough deep clean."
