York Away: 24 years ago today...

It's the game recognised by City fans as perhaps our lowest ever point...

Our Division Two visit to Bootham Crescent - on this day 24 years ago (19 December 1998) - has become part of the Club's folklore, with Joe Royle's side beaten 2-1 - a result that saw us slip to our lowest ever league position.

But it sparked a significant upturn in form. 

We only lost two of our next 27 matches, earning promotion back into Division One via the play-offs after a memorable final against Gillingham. 

In this CITY+ and Recast documentary, we speak to the fans and players who were there that fateful day and get their memories. 

And it’s available to watch now – only on CITY+ and Recast.


CITY+ is our content subscription service, which is available on all our digital platforms -, Man City app and Smart TV.
