York City FC: Fighting Back chronicles the eight-year journey that York City have taken to regain their Football League status. In 2004/05 optimism for a swift return was high, but ultimately misplaced as signings like Paul Robinson failed miserably to live up to expectations. In total, the team visited the new Wembley Stadium four times as a non-League club, having also been beaten in the 2009 Trophy final, the 2010 play-off final, and played Premier League clubs Bolton and Stoke in the third round of the FA Cup. York faced the realistic prospect of oblivion twice during campaigns in which they narrowly escaped relegation. However, after two failed attempts at promotion via the play-offs, York City achieved last season's historic Wembley double when they triumphed in both the FA Trophy and Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final, sparking sensational scenes of celebration in the city. Despite plying their trade at the club's lowest-ever level, it has been a colourful period in the Minstermen's history.
