samwaters' review of Bootham Crescent

The first challenge at Bootham Crescent was getting past the turnstile. The man on the gate attempted to overcharge everybody, and got angry at us (however after a complaint, Keith the steward solved the issue, even though the ticket prices were still extortionate). After entering I purchased a pie and a drink. Unlike most non league grounds, this pie was heated out of a packet and was not home made. On top of this the bottle cap was removed from my drink, a typical ex-league club move. After my food, I went to use the toilets which were basically a drain. They stank like the toilets at the festival I had just been at smelt like after 3 hot days! There was no roof behind the goal, and so we all paid an extra pound to enter the side stand with the roof. After 5 minutes of standing up singing we were all told to sit down and had to leave to sing behind the goal instead. A person I had spoke to said he had visited this ground 21 years ago and nothing had changed since.

Overall York City is a non-league club stuck in the Football League mentality, with a ground that hasn\'t had a major update for over 21 years. Most of the stewards there are way too strict, and the man on the turnstile does not know what he is doing.

Please note: this ground has replaced Nuneaton as my worst ground.
