Great draw. My old manís team, rip. Fed up of him telling me about Arthur Bottom and how the dirty bastard Jimmy Scoular stopping them getting to the Final in 1955(?).

Went to Yorkís play off win over Crewe on the same weekend as we beat Leicester.

First home game 95/96 is my guess?

Aside from my guess there, a nice draw for me.  Few friends up there, had the incredible honour of being best man in the minster itself.

Feels about right.

Although a trip to Bootham Crescent on the surface might have been desirable, for travelling fans, we've a sketchy record there, so need to get the job done at the CG

Itís as good a draw as any in the hat really. York wonít view it as a massive day out - I expect theyíll be disappointed with it.

Got to get the job done now.

I was alive. 1955 that, York's finest hour, got to the semi as a Div 3 (N) side and took Newcastle to a replay. A fine sight of  Archibald Leitch ironwork at Roker, there may be some still kicking around at Goodison and Fratton Park.

York turned over Spurs in the 5th round which was probably their stand out FA cup win.  They did win 3-0 at Old Trafford in 95 in the LC, which I'm sure their fans still recall to this day.

Of further interest in that clip is Ronnie Simpson in goal for Newcastle. He'd played for GB in the 1948 Olympics, won the Cup in 55, then the European Cup with Celtic in 68.

Apparently, their manager, Sam Collins, was once a loanee at the CG.

Canít remember that.

And they have never beaten us at the CG. There, Iíve said it.

Decent draw that. Home tie is best but wouldn't have minded an away tie versus Jonathan Smith's former Minsterboys!

York were one of few teams to beat us in 95/96. Haven't played them since!
