It's good to see that there's some real heart left in football. The York City fans who collected money for struggling Weymouth before their home game against the Terras on Saturday 28 February 2009 are to be congratulated. In the often bitter world of modern football fandom, not to mention the cut-throat financial climate, solidarity of this kind is not as usual as you'd like. York secured a fairly comfortable 2-0 win against the cash-strapped southern side, who have lost their first team and are staring extinction in the face. The locals are determined to keep them afloat, however, and the 17s youth side put up an incredibly brave fight on the field, having been hammered 9-0 at Rushden and Diamonds last week. I really hope the Terras can keep their heads above water.
