An update on the managerial vacancy

York City FC would like to provide an update regarding how it is progressing with a managerial appointment following the departure of Mikey Morton last Monday.

The managerial process will be led by the recruitment team. The York City recruitment team have a clear blueprint when identifying suitable candidates who are a good fit for the Football Club.

The recruitment team have gone through all applications, spoken to many managers and agents, and will now take the necessary time to assess, identify and then meet candidates to present at interview.

Given the size, supporter base and potential of the Club, the role is attracting a lot of interest and it is very important that the Club takes the appropriate time in making a selection given the importance of the role.

This is an attractive role within a hugely ambitious Football Club and we want to ensure we leave no stone unturned in looking for the next manager.

York City have ambitious owners who want to see a football team on the pitch that the supporters will be proud of. It is important that we undertake the appropriate due diligence to ensure that the selection process arrives at correct decision in a timely manner.

Assistant / Interim Manager Tony McMahon and the current first team staff will continue to lead and train the squad until any further notice.

We thank you for your continued support and will continue to provide updates as and when it is appropriate to do so.
