Richard Cresswell could stake a claim to be next York City manager this weekend
York City are the latest Football League club to dispense with the services of their manager, with the Minstermen sitting in a lowly League Two position and deciding to axe Russ Wilcox after Saturday’s home reverse against Wimbledon.
Richard Cresswell has been placed in temporary charge and it appears that the caretaker boss might get the gig on a permanent basis, with the former York player available at 5/2 with BetVictor.
Spokesperson Charlie McCann told bookies.com: “Cresswell is likely to take charge of the side for the trip to Crawley at the weekend and a positive result might put the former player and first-team coach in pole position to take over the Minstermen.
“Danny Wilson and Stuart Gray are 6/1 and 8/1 respectively with Nigel Clough 10s for a post that is likely to attract a number of high-profile applications.”
There might be plenty of other applications, with Danny Wilson a 6/1 chance and former Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray is an 8/1 chance after leaving Hillsborough in the summer.
York will want to avoid another relegation scrap which occurred last season and Nigel Clough is a 10/1 poke to return to football management, while Graham Alexander is an 8/1 chance to make a quick return to football after recently leaving Fleetwood.
