The Minstermen are back on the road down South this coming Sunday afternoon when we travel to the Mangata Pay UK Stadium to take on Boreham Wood in the Vanarama National League in front of the TNT Sports cameras (2pm kick off).  

Neal Ardley’s side head into this one hoping to extend their unbeaten run in the league to seven games, having last tasted defeat in the National League in the middle of November.

Boreham Wood head into Sunday’s fixture knowing three points against the Minstermen could turn their season around as they look to close up on an eight point gap between themselves and the playoff positions.

They ended last year with a 2-1 win at Kidderminster Harriers, which was only their third win in their last 11 games in all competitions.


Minstermen supporters will be housed in the South End of the ground on Sunday afternoon, a standing terrace with an allocation for up to 1,250 supporters. 359 seats will also be made available to York supporters in the covered West Stand.

Boreham Wood have kindly offered half-price entry for all supporters for this weekend’s fixture, with prices listed below:

  • Adult: £10
  • OAP: £9
  • U16**: £6
