They might still have three league fixtures remaining, but York City’s sorry fate would appear signed, sealed and finally delivered after once again falling woefully short in yet another of their self-proclaimed ‘must-win’ encounters.

The latest shocking 1-0 defeat to part-time hosts Gainsborough Trinity, who played for over an hour with just ten-men but still look destined for relegation, maintained an alarming recent slump that has witnessed the Minstermen scraping just a solitary point from their last available twelve.

That has in turn witnessed them sliding outside of the play-offs for the first time since the turn of the year, with realistically now as low as fifth position already out of reach, and the two clubs occupying the remaining couple of places still holding significant games in hand.

Therefore, unless there is a similarly dramatic collapse from elsewhere, that would seem to be it for a York side that has already let their valiant supporters down on so many separate occasions this seasons. Given that fact alone, perhaps it’s as well they have been spared any further heartache of a play-off lottery, and can instead begin with the inquests and recriminations that are sure to stretch long and deep into a summer of yet more edge-of-the-seat uncertainty.

So, how did the fans react across social media after the latest instalment of a truly disastrous season?
