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

Former Premier League footballer Clarke Carlisle, who was seriously injured in a collision with a lorry, is awake in hospital.

His wife, Gemma Carlisle, thanked supporters on Twitter and confirmed that he is awake.

The 35-year-old former Professional Footballers' Association chairman was seriously injured following the collision on the A64, near York, on December 22 and remains in a Leeds hospital.

North Yorkshire Police launched an investigation into the circumstances of the incident and appealed for witnesses.

The Metropolitan Police later confirmed that Carlisle was charged with failing to provide a sample on December 20 - days before his serious injuries - and is due to appear in court later this month.
