RUSS HAS GROUNDS FOR HOPE

The Football League Paper - - ADAM VIRGO -

BOSS Russ Wil­cox says York City must be as­sured of their Foot­ball League sta­tus ahead of their move to a new sta­dium in 2016.

The Min­ster­men have been play­ing their home matches at Bootham Cres­cent for the last 83 years but will move to a new home af­ter plans were ap­proved last month.

The 51-year-old took over in Oc­to­ber with the club one place above the rel­e­ga­tion zone, and he said: “There’s no point hav­ing a new sta­dium and play­ing Non-League. I’ve seen the plans and I want to be the man that takes us into the new sta­dium.”

York beat Hartle­pool 1-0 yes­ter­day to give their sur­vival chances a ma­jor boost.
