A remarkably beautiful and historic place is the fair city of York. There’s the famous York Minster (the largest Gothic Cathedral north of the Alps), the longest city walls in England and one of the best racecourses in the country.
Guy Fawkes (the last man to enter parliament with honourable intentions) was from York and legendary highwayman Dick Turpin was famously hanged at York.
There’s also York City Football Club.
The Minstermen have enjoyed just one season above the third tier but have managed some cracking cup runs in their time. Back in 1938 they sent first division giants Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion packing in the FA Cup. They also reached the FA Cup semi-final in 1955 season, beating a Blackpool side containing Stanley Matthews on the way. More recently, York City knocked Arsenal out of the 1985 FA Cup.
York’s greatest cup scalp probably came in 1996 when they managed a shock 4-3 aggregate victory over the mighty Manchester United – that season United were to go onto win a Premier League and FA Cup double.
Best of days? Probably wining the Fourth Division championship in 1983/84 with 101 points – the first time any team topped 100 points in a Football League season.
Worst of days? Our guess is 2002 when former racing driver John Batchelor took over as chairman and changed the team’s name to "York City Soccer Club." Hmm...
