ADAM HINSHELWOOD is relishing a bumper crowd on Good Friday, as his York City side welcome the Vanarama National League champions Chesterfield.

Hinshelwood is determined to produce a spectacle for the York supporters, after the club confirmed that the North Stand had been made available to City fans with the goal of breaking their current attendance record at the LNER Community Stadium.

Chesterfield have been granted the West Stand for the match, and sold out their initial allocation, with the LNER Community Stadium set to hold a bumper attendance as the Minstermen look to reinforce their challenge for safety.

Hinshelwood is relishing the prospect, and hopes it can happen on a more regular basis if he can get York firing going forward.

“It’s going to be a real taste of what we want it to be like on a more regular basis, I know that if we are successful here then this can be the norm,” Hinshelwood enthused.

“It’s going to be a real taste of what we want to it to be like, it’s the reason I came to York City because it is a massive club and a massive step up.

“It was a tough couple of weeks results wise, but I have loved every minute of it so far and I just want to stay on this journey.

“It’s something that we want to generate at this club on a regular basis, so I want them to really enjoy it.

“I think they’re going to really feel what a big club they are at and representing, I am the same myself. I am really looking forward to it and I want the players to really embrace it as well.

“I really felt it in the last home game and after experiencing that, I couldn’t wait for another home game.

“It’s down to us as the players on the pitch and as the staff to generate that in our performance, to get them off their seats and behind us.

“We know that if we can do that then there will be some atmosphere within the stadium, it’s a game we’re all looking forward to.

“Hopefully they enjoy the style of how we want to play, like I said it is down to us to entertain them as ultimately we want to play a certain brand to create chances and score goals.

“If we are doing that, hopefully the supporters like what they see and want to come back.

“That’s something I’ve always believed in as attendances have gone up at my previous clubs because of that, I want York City to be no different.”

The match has the potential to have a higher attendance than York’s 2-0 victory over Boston United in the Vanarama National League North play-off final in 2022, with the York City Supporters’ Trust doing some brilliant work to #FillTheLNER for Friday afternoon.

Hinshelwood also had a message for City supporters ahead of a crucial match at the LNER, and hopes that they can continue their incredible backing.

“Like they did last game, they really got behind us and we know it’s down to us to put on a bit of a show and entertain them.

“I’m sure that if we do that then they will support us and get behind us, we really need them at this crucial stage of the season.

“We’ve got three home games left, we really need to create a good spirit and really get behind us so we can stick together and pull in the same direction.

“If we play entertaining football and create chances, then they will.”
