York City have been getting slammed on social media after leaving their changing room in a messy state at Curzon Ashton.
A video was uploaded onto Twitter showing a muddy and wet floor, covered with empty plastic bottles and many different types of rubbish.

FA Licensed Coach for Curzon Ashton, Richard Twamley, posted the clip and since Saturday, it’s gone on to be viewed over 34,000 times.
It came after the Minstermen finally lost their unbeaten record consisting of 16 league games and were overtaken at the top of the table by King’s Lynn Town after Connor Dimaio rifled in the only goal of the game at the Tameside Stadium.
York manager Steve Watson has expressed his disappointment at defeat against Curzon Ashton, which he believes was sealed by an “awful” first half.
He said: “The first half was awful. I’m trying to think of a better word for it but it was an awful performance.
“We were almost waiting for something to happen instead of making something happen.
“This week was about putting last week behind us but we looked like we were lacking in confidence, and I said to the lads, ‘How could that be?’
“Second half, I thought we were camped in their half, their keeper made some saves, but that’s easy to do when you’re behind.
“The first half was a huge disappointment and where the game was lost.
“Like last week, we moved the ball very slowly in the first half, went backwards so many times – and that really is a lack of confidence. I’d rather players lose the ball on the edge of the box trying to be positive but that wasn’t the case.
“They were all frustrated and angry with themselves at half-time but these are the games where, if we’d nicked a point, we’d have kept our unbeaten run going, but it’s completely flummoxed me the first-half performance today.
“That’s why sometimes you throw the floor open dressing room and you want answers from the players. I didn’t respond to last week badly, the fans didn’t particularly respond to last week badly. We all agreed it was a below-par performance but everything this week suggested we were going to kick back on.
“For 45 minutes, we looked almost shell-shocked. I didn’t recognise a lot of the players in the first half.
“When you’re a goal down, you can chase the game and you can play football, but if we had played with that pace for 90 minutes no doubt could have won the game.”
