Wild West style posters have appeared around a York shopping centre.
The ‘Not Wanted’ posters have been spotted both at Vangarde and Monks Cross.
They are the latest protest by disgruntled York City fans – which is why several are close to the LNER Community Stadium.
Featuring the face of controversial City chairman Glen Henderson, Photoshopped to make him appear like a cheroot-smoking cowboy, the posters say: “Not Wanted: Glen ‘the big kid’ Hendo & pardner ‘Calamity’ Janee”.
The poster is ‘By the order of Minstermen fans in Monks Cross Territory, York’. A reward of 100 whiskies is offered to anyone who runs the couple ‘out of God’s own country for good’.
Mr Henderson took over as majority shareholder and chairman in July last year.
His wife Janee Henderson was appointed to the York City FC board of directors in December.
Just months after taking over, Mr Henderson lost the support of most City fans after he sacked popular manager John Askey, appointed a first-time manager in David Webb, and then sacked him after 69 days.
Mr Henderson has 51% of the shares, York City Supporters’ Trust has 49%. The trust is trying to find a buyer for the club after the chairman agreed to sell up and move on.
In March, the trust said it had to step in to pay a shortfall in the wages of players and staff, with the help of a donation from a supporter whose name identity has been kept under wraps.
After all the off-pitch turbulence, York City only avoided an immediate relegation back to National League North on the last game of the season.
