YORK CITY have refused a proposal to move back Tuesday evening’s fixture by nine days stating it would be ‘detrimental to their supporters’.

A statement on the Hereford FC website said: “Following suggestions and comments from supporters regarding the possibility of moving our scheduled home game against York City to Saturday, December 14, we can confirm that the game will go ahead on Tuesday, December 3, as originally planned.

“With both York and ourselves now out of the FA Trophy, Saturday, December 14, has now become a free Saturday for both sides.

“However, we can confirm that our suggestion to move the game has been turned down by York City based on concerns that their supporters may have already book non-refundable travel and/or accommodation.”

Club Secretary Martin Watson made the request to York to move the game, he told the club’s website: “I spoke to the league to confirm that both sides had to be in agreement on a date change, then I went back to York to confirm their stance.

“After a brief discussion they believe that to change the date at this stage would be detrimental to their supporters. Therefore we are unable to change the date to the free Saturday we both now have.”
