NEAL ARDLEY has urged York City supporters to back the football club heading into the business end of the Vanarama National League season.

York supporters have so far sold over 230 tickets for the upcoming trip to Barnet on Saturday, February 24 (3pm), with the Bees opting to open an extra stand to seat the travelling City fans.

Ardley lauded the Minstermen’s support again, labelling it as ‘magnificent’, and hopes that the fans can continue to play a pivotal role behind any potential success of the football club by all sticking together.

“Be loud, be noisy, we need everyone, and I mean everyone,” Ardley enthused to the Press.

“I think home and away they have been great, we’ve talked about it before with the odd boos but we have won three games at home all season.

“Fans are entitled to show their frustrations, it’s not a nasty way of doing it but it is just frustration.

“They want to see their team win, they want to go home happy on a Saturday, have a pint with their mates and talk about what a good performance it was.

“We haven’t given them enough of that, but away from home we have always given them a right good go in the games so carry on being what you are.

“We all want to see York in this league, we all want to kick on and be at the top of the table with everyone singing our praises at some point.

“We’re going to lose games, we’re going to win games, but we all just need to stick together and the fans have been magnificent when playing their part in that.”
