Mark Yates has leapt to the head of the betting market to become the next manager of York City. BetVictor now chalk up 4/6 that the former Cheltenham and Crawley manager is given the reins at Bootham Crescent, with Gary Mills available at odds of 7/4 following the latter being sacked by Wrexham this week.
Jackie McNamara finally decided to step down as manager of York City, with Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Braintree proving inadequate and the Scot will leave Bootham Crescent as soon as a replacement is found.
McNamara was unable to arrest a slump in form last season in League Two and the Minstermen suffered relegation from the Football League, with the new season in the National League seeing the Yorkshire side struggle.
York currently sit nineteenth in the National League and look more likely to suffer another relegation this term rather than enjoy an immediate promotion, with the team having won just three of their fifteen games to date.
McNamara will remain in charge while a replacement manager is found and Neil Redfearn was the early 3/1 favourite to step into the breach, with the former Leeds and Rotherham manager having been in caretaker charge of the club back in 2008.
Tony Mowbray might not fancy dropping down into the National League considering the majority of his roles have been at a far higher level, with Yates now believed to be the front runner for the vacant position.
Wrexham boss Gary Mills has now left The Racecourse after a recent 2-0 reverse at Prenton Park, with former Forest Green boss Adrian Pennock potentially interested in taking charge.
York fans will hope that a swift appointment is made after a miserable few months and City are without a win in their past seven matches which has seen them recently pummelled 6-1 by Guiseley.
