About as grim as it can possibly get. Snowfall put this match in doubt, Arsenal supporters who arrived in the old city were praised for helping get the Bootham Crescent pitch clear and ready for the game. How did York City repay us? By dumping Arsenal out of the Cup. No, I was not one who ventured onto the pitch to help clear, simply one who was peeved with them for doing so. In fairness, I would have been peeved had the game been called off as it was not a quick journey from my then Guildford home.
