Part two of Bootham Crescent: A Second Home and covers the period 1960 – 1993, culminating in York City’s play-off success at Wembley on that famous day in May 1993.

 

Written and produced by club historian Paul Bowser, it is hardback production of around 270 A4 pages covering three remarkable decades in the development of the ground and the performances of the team.

It was the period where wider events began to shape the ground, leading to more seats, less terracing, the disappearance of most of the white picket fencing, and the appearance of the hospitality boxes.

Sadly, it was the tragic death of David Longhurst which resulted in the biggest change to Bootham Crescent in that era.

The ground also hosted rugby league for the first time, and featured American football and a rock n’ roll concert, but football always took centre stage.

York City FC, as ever, had its share of ups and downs, with five promotions, five relegations, a first taste of Second Division football, and more stirring FA Cup deeds.

The memories will come flooding back to those of a certain age with every turn of a page, and there is also a section on match programmes and tickets to please memorabilia collectors.
