The Minstermen are back on the road down south this coming Saturday as we take on Woking in front of the TNT Sports Cameras.

Kicking off at the earlier time of 12:30pm, the Minstermen will travel to Surrey to take on a side currently sat 6th in the National League.

Last season, the Minstermen did a league double over Darren Sarll’s side, earning a 2-0 win on the opening day of the season at the LNER Community Stadium, before travelling back up North with all three points in early December as ten-man City also secured a 2-0 win following goals from Sam Sanders and Lenell John-Lewis.

Sarll’s side have had a promising start to the season, after taking sixteen points from their opening ten games in the league. They’re currently on a six match unbeaten run, which has seen them secure three wins and three draws.

Woking vs York City will be played on Saturday 23rd September, kicking off at 12:30pm. Here is all the information you need to know ahead of our trip to Surrey.

Car: The ground is situated on the A247, opposite the entrance to Woking Park, midway between the town centre and Old Woking. Leave the M25 at either junctions 10 (Wisley) or 11 (Chertsey) and follow the signs towards Woking. When nearing the town centre follow the brown signs showing Heathside Crescent Car Park, and then follow signs for Woking FC.

Train: If you are travelling by train, there are frequent fast services from Waterloo to Woking, with a journey time of about 28 minutes (but check for weekend engineering works).

Leave the station by the exit on platform 5.

You then have a choice of two routes. You can either follow the signposted route ahead of you down White Rose Lane or turn immediately right along the station approach road to take the more direct route.


As mentioned above, the Minstermen did a league double over Woking last season, securing 2-0 wins both at the LNER Community Stadium and the Laithwaite Community Stadium.

Prior to these fixtures, City took four points from Woking during the 2016/17 season. City secured a 4-1 win at Bootham Crescent in August 2016, where goals from Richard Brodie, Yan Klukowski, Jake Wright and Aidan Connolly secured an impressive win for the Minstermen.

Later that season, a Jon Parkin goal rescued a point for City in April 2017, who had gone behind nine minutes earlier following Gozie Ugwu’s penalty.


As always, the best way to follow the game is at the stadium, but if you can’t make it to the stadium this weekend however, here are some alternatives:
