York City won’t be rushed into appointing a new manager.
That was the message today (Monday, 4 September), as the club issued a statement on the progress to find a successor to Mikey Morton.
Morton was sacked as manager after a run of poor results left City next to bottom in the National League, despite the new owners investing heavily in the playing squad.
Assistant manager Tony McMahon took charge for Saturday’s game away to Ebbsfleet which City lost 4-1.
The club’s recruitment team “have a clear blueprint when identifying suitable candidates” for the managerial vacancy, today’s statement said.
“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 off.
“It is important that we undertake the appropriate due diligence to ensure that the selection process arrives at correct decision in a timely manner.”
