YORK City Ladies have thanked fans for their support, after it was revealed the Minsterbelles had the second-highest average attendance in the FA Women's National League division one north.

The club have seen an increase in attendances this season, after celebrating survival on the final day of the season following a dramatic 4-4 draw with Barnsley Women's.

York are only behind Newcastle United Women's in the attendance averages, managing an average attendance of 373 throughout the season.

This includes the matches York played at the LNER Community Stadium, away from their usual home of the York St Johns University Sports Park.

The Ladies played at the LNER Community Stadium three times this season in front of bumper crowds.

The club said on Twitter: "MASSIVE! Thank you all for your support this season! We can’t wait to have you back behind us in the 2023/24 campaign."

Fan favourite Holly Findlay also celebrated the statistic, saying on Twitter: "@YorkCityLFC are massive everywhere you go!"

The club are also hosting trials to join the Minsterbelles, for both the first team and the development squad.

Open trials will be held on Wednesday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 14 at York St Johns University Sports Park.

The players who proceed through the open trials will then be invited back for a second trial on Thursday, June 15, with the first team in tier four, and the development squad playing their football in either tier six or seven, after winning their league title.
