York City appoint McNamara as manager

York have appointed former Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara as their new manager after the departure of Russ Wilcox.

McNamara takes over with the club 22nd in Sky Bet League Two after taking just two points from their last eight games.

The former Celtic and Scotland defender will be joined at Bootham Crescent by former Scotland team-mate Simon Donnelly, who becomes his assistant for a third time.

McNamara began his managerial career with Partick Thistle and the club were second in the Scottish First Division in January 2013 when he left to take the vacant position at Dundee United.

The 42-year-old parted company with the Tannadice side in September after a poor start to the season.

Russ Wilcox was sacked from the club in late October, with the club currently 22nd in League Two. McNamara was previously in charge of Dundee United and Partick Thistle.

York City sack manager Russ Wilcox

Russ joined York City in October 2014 and successfully achieved the Board of Directors' target of securing League Two status at the end of last season finishing 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

Sadly, however, due to the team only attaining 12 points so far this season, the Board felt they had to make a managerial change in order to give the Club the best chance of necessary progress in the League.

– York City statement

The Board of Directors would like to thank Russ for his hard work, commitment and endeavour during his time as York City manager.

He has been a pleasure to work with and is an honourable, decent individual who has given his all to his role at the Club.

The Board would also like to thank John Schofield for his hard work and enthusiasm on the training ground. Like Russ, he has also shown a high level of commitment to the Club during his time here.

Everyone at York City Football Club wishes both Russ and John the very best for the future.

– Jason McGill, York City Chairman
