There are calls for York's Football Youth Development Programme to be funded by the Government.

Conference teams recieve no financial support to run the scheme, but Football League clubs gets up to £180,000.

York MP Hugh Bayley MP says "It is ridiculous that rich clubs like Man U receive funding whilist sides like York City receive nothing."

He's now chosen to champion the financial plight of the Minstermen and is raising the issue in Parliament.
