York fans show chairman the red card, make feelings clear, sing for John Askey during protest

York City fans took to show chairman Glen Henderson the red card, make their feelings clear, and sing for John Askey during their protest.

The hosts’ opponents, Wealdstone captain Jack Cook, found the net in stoppage time as his side came from behind to beat the managerless Minstermen 2-1 in their National League match at the Community Stadium.

York were rewarded for a positive start, with Adam Crookes seeing his header smashing the crossbar before Manny Duku put them in front from a corner in the 14th minute.

The visitors got one back in the 67th minute, on-loan Sheffield United defender Miguel Freckleton placing the ball in from a free-kick, with Stones keeper Samuel Howes then producing a superb save to stop Ryan Fallowfield from scoring.

Just when it looked like both sides would come away with a point each, Cook got his head on a free-kick to stun York, who this week sacked the popular John Askey, and as you can see below, the fans made sure they made their voices heard towards the chairman following that controversial decision.

Henderson said before the game: “After taking some time away from social media, I would like to address this myself.

“I would like to apologise for the way this information has been handled.

“We all recognise the mistakes made as a team and we can all learn from this.

“We all love the club and we all want the club to succeed.

“Please get behind the players tomorrow! It’s time for a new beginning, no one is bigger than the club.”

However since then, he has deleted his account with his tweets no longer possible to see.

This is how Twitter users reacted as York fans show the chairman the red card, make their feelings clear, and sing for John Askey during the protest…

@brianstokes92: That puppet manager sign is excellent. 😂 #ycfc

@newbold_matty: I’ve always loved York. But Henderson’s killed my passion so quickly. We had a very bright light at the end of the tunnel at the beginning of the season, but Henderson’s pissed on it #ycfc

@Browny_90: You love to see it.

@MinsterMerch: 🟥 🟥 🟥 🟥 🟥 🟥 #hendersonout #YCFC

@aidan_08: Quite right too!! He is a disgrace to the club, the city and the sport.

@YCFCJake: For the Wrexham game, how about some tennis balls for the cameras 🤣 #ycfc

@DerwentReds: Cunt

@gm_stone: Fully in support of the red card protest against the chairman at #ycfc – wonder who came up with that idea? ☺️

@lotslottie16: Heroes every one of you, heard loud and proud on the radio. Keep it up 👏🏻👏🏻 #ycfc

@dave_olsen16: Win, lose, or draw, #hendersonout

@MickCordukes: It’s a great line up because they are all the players John Askey signed . #hendersonout

@MickCordukes: John Askey’s barmy army… #hendersonout

@rodders2191: Should start a “Boost the Banner” campaign 😂

@RobdHay: Pitch invasion, all sides of the stand and even @Wrexham_AFC @fearlessidzine fans if they like. They’ve had some terrible owners over the years #ycfc #hendersonout

@YCSP84: A bad result on the pitch to end a bad week off it. Two similar sides. Would’ve settled for a draw in the end. Kudos to everyone for making their voices heard & for making the protest banners. The fight continues. We are York. John Askey’s Red & Blue Army! ✊ #ycfc #SackTheBoard

@lotslottie16: Pleased with that, are you Henderson? You utter, utter Twat #ycfc

@78ajs: If @ycfcchairman has enjoyed his afternoon as being reported then I’m guessing he would love a repeat live on BT sports, maybe some of his American friends will see how well he is doing? Hope the
@ycfcst were uncomfortable Alistair, Mike & Glen…..your not welcome any more! #ycfc
