YORK City Supporters' Trust has called a special general meeting to hold a vote of no confidence in the football club's board.

Responding to a formal request from society members, the Trust will hold a meeting in just over two weeks' time to debate and vote on the no-confidence motion.

The motion under debate is: "We move that the Supporters' Trust board makes a public declaration of no confidence in the boards of York City Football Club Ltd and its subsidiary companies."

City chairman Jason McGill has been a divisive figure among fans during his tenure since he joined the fight to save the club from extinction in the early 2000s.

McGill has recently come under fire after the Stadium Management Company, a subsidiary company wholly owned by the club, reportedly failed to meet safety requirements at the 8,500-seater LNER Community Stadium, limiting capacity to 2,000 spectators (this has since risen to 4,000).

Frustrations with McGill and the board - which also comprises Steven Kilmartin, Ian McAndrew, Dave Penney and Richard Adams - boiled over during Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Brackley Town, which left then winless York at their lowest-ever ebb.

Details of how to register to speak and vote can be found online at ycst.org.uk/sgm-sep21/.

For the purposes of the special general meeting, a registered member is anyone who has paid their membership fees in full by 10am on Tuesday, September 14, the Trust says.

The meeting will be held at 7pm on Thursday, September 16 at the Burton Stone Working Mens Club, 74 Bootham Crescent, York, YO30 7AH.

York City have told The Press they will not be making a comment at this time.
