History

1922–67

York City went without an official manager from their formation in May 1922 until the appointment of Jock Collier in July 1928.[1] Collier initially joined as player-manager, but was forced to retire from playing due to a broken ankle after two matches.[2] He was in charge for York's last season in the Midland League before their election into the Football League in June 1929.[2] Collier oversaw the club's successful transition from non-League football to Third Division North, but left the club in May 1930 to become a publican.[3] George Sherrington combined his duties as club secretary with that of manager for the next three years, before Collier was reappointed manager in May 1933.[3] With results at a low ebb, he helped York establish themselves in the Football League, and led them to the fourth round of the 1936–37 FA Cup.[3] In March 1937, Collier retired from football to go into business with his brother.[4] Former player Tom Mitchell was appointed, and in his first full season led York to the quarter-final of the 1937–38 FA Cup.[5]

League football was suspended in September 1939 with the outbreak of the Second World War, and team affairs in wartime competitions were handled by director and acting manager Arthur Wright, before his resignation from illness midway through the 1942–43 season.[6] He was replaced by Tom Lockie, who carried on until after the 1945–46 FA Cup, when Mitchell returned for the 1946–47 Football League season.[7] Mitchell resigned in February 1950 to concentrate on his business interests,[5] and was succeeded by Birmingham City northern scout and former York player Dick Duckworth in April.[8] He lifted the club from the bottom of the table to a top four position, but left in October 1952 to take over at Stockport County.[9] Former Grimsby Town manager Charlie Spencer took over in November 1952, but his health declined and died in February 1953, after less than three months in charge.[9] Sheffield United assistant manager Jimmy McCormick was appointed in June 1953, before he resigned in September 1954 over a dispute with the board regarding team selection.[10] York went the next 18 months without an official manager, with team matters handled by trainer Lockie and secretary Sherrington.[10] This was a successful period for the club;[10] York reached the semi-final of the 1954–55 FA Cup, and were beaten by Newcastle United in a replay.[11]

Sam Bartram, a former Charlton Athletic player who played for York during the war, was appointed manager in March 1956.[10] Under him York narrowly missed out on becoming founder members of the Fourth Division on goal average in 1957–58, although the club's first promotion came the next season with a third-place finish.[12] York were relegated from the Third Division after one season, and Bartram left in July 1960 to take over at Luton Town.[13] Lockie was his successor, and in his first two seasons as manager York narrowly missed out on promotion.[13] This was followed by two disappointing seasons, including an application for re-election after 1963–64, before York won promotion into the Third Division in 1964–65 by playing exciting and attacking football.[13] Immediate relegation followed, and York had to apply for re-election again after 1966–67.[13] Lockie became the first York manager to be dismissed in October 1967, with the team bottom of the Fourth Division.[14]

1967–91

Former Sheffield United player Joe Shaw was appointed in November 1967, but he could not prevent York having to seek re-election after 1967–68.[15] Shaw resigned for personal reasons in August 1968, and was succeeded by former Huddersfield Town manager Tom Johnston in October.[15] Another re-election bid came after 1968–69, but Johnston gradually improved the team; after a midtable finish the following season, York were promoted into the Third Division in 1970–71.[16] York avoided relegation on goal average over the next two seasons, before winning promotion into the Second Division in 1973–74 with a third-place finish.[16] Johnston resigned to return to Huddersfield Town in January 1975;[16] club historian David Batters described him as "arguably the most successful manager in York City's history".[15]

Wilf McGuinness talking to an audience
York were relegated from the Second Division into the Fourth Division in successive seasons under Wilf McGuinness.

York appointed former Manchester United manager Wilf McGuinness in February 1975, and he helped them stay in the Second Division in 1974–75.[17] However, York faced successive relegations under McGuinness, when finishing 21st in 1975–76 and bottom of the Third Division in 1976–77.[17] He was dismissed in October 1977, with York 22nd in the Fourth Division, and was succeeded by former Charlton Athletic player Charlie Wright in November.[17] He could not prevent a re-election bid after 1977–78, before leading York to 10th place the following season.[17] Wright was dismissed in March 1980 with the team near the bottom of the table,[17] and under caretaker manager Barry Lyons York finished 17th in 1979–80.[18] He was appointed permanently in May 1980, and in his first full season in charge York finished bottom of the table.[18] York continued to struggle and Lyons was dismissed in December 1981; Kevin Randall and Barry Swallow each had spells in caretaker charge, before York finished 17th in 1981–82.[18]

Denis Smith, who played on loan from Stoke City the previous season, was appointed player-manager in May 1982.[18] After leading York to seventh place in 1982–83, Smith retired from playing.[19] York won their first major title in 1983–84, when the Fourth Division championship was secured with 101 points.[19] This meant York became the first team to achieve a three-figure points total in a Football League season.[19] In the next two seasons they finished eighth and seventh in the Third Division, and took Liverpool to FA Cup fifth round replays.[19] York narrowly avoided relegation in 1986–87, and Smith left to take over at Sunderland in May 1987.[19] Former Blackburn Rovers manager Bobby Saxton was appointed in June 1987; he was tasked with rebuilding the team in a matter of weeks, and York were relegated into the Fourth Division in 1987–88.[20] With York bottom of the table, Saxton resigned in September 1988, and was succeeded by former Hartlepool United manager John Bird in October.[21] York ranked 11th in 1988–89, and having looked like mounting a promotion challenge, finished 13th the following season.[21] York were bottom of the Fourth Division by the time of Bird's dismissal in October 1991.[21]

1991–2010

York appointed Aston Villa assistant manager John Ward in November 1991.[22] Ward developed the team he inherited from Bird, and York were top of the table by December 1992.[23] He left for Bristol Rovers in March 1993, and was succeeded by his assistant Alan Little.[23] Two months later Little led York to promotion via the Third Division play-offs, with a penalty shoot-out victory over Crewe Alexandra in the final.[24] In the 1993–94 season, York were beaten by Stockport County in the semi-final of the Second Division play-offs.[24] York finished midtable the following season, but only avoided relegation in 1995–96 with a win on the final day of the season, although they knocked Manchester United out of the 1995–96 League Cup.[24] In the following season's competition they eliminated Everton, but again narrowly avoided relegation that season.[24] York's form continued to falter by the late 1990s, and Little was dismissed in March 1999 after a run of 10 matches without a win.[24]

Chris Brass standing on a grass field
York were relegated into the Conference National under Chris Brass in 2003–04.

York player Neil Thompson took over as caretaker manager, but he was unable to avoid relegation into the Third Division, after a defeat on the last day of 1998–99.[24] He was appointed permanently in May 1999, but was dismissed in February 2000 with York 21st in the table.[24] Former Hull City manager Terry Dolan was appointed and he led York clear of relegation in 1999–2000.[25] Despite off-pitch problems at the club, York were in an automatic promotion place by late-March 2003, before finishing 10th in 2002–03.[25] York player Chris Brass was appointed player-manager in June 2003; aged 27, this made him the youngest managerial appointment in the Football League since 1946.[25] Having been 10th in the table in January 2004, York went 20 matches without a win and were relegated into the Conference National after 2003–04, which brought to an end 75 years of Football League membership.[25] Brass was dismissed in November 2004 with York fourth from bottom of the table, and his assistant Viv Busby took caretaker charge before the appointment of former Derby County coach Billy McEwan in February 2005.[26]

McEwan steered York away from relegation with a 17th-place finish in 2004–05, and his rebuilt team finished eighth the following season.[27] York reached the play-offs in 2006–07, but were beaten 1–0 on aggregate by Morecambe in the semi-final.[27] With home form poor McEwan was dismissed in November 2007, and his assistant Colin Walker took over as caretaker manager[28] before being appointed permanently in December.[29] After only five wins from the first 19 matches of 2008–09, Walker was dismissed in November 2008,[30] and was succeeded by former Port Vale manager Martin Foyle.[31] York avoided relegation in the penultimate match of the season[32] and reached the 2009 FA Trophy Final, in which they were beaten by Stevenage Borough.[33] Foyle's York lost to Oxford United in the 2010 Conference Premier play-off Final,[34] and he resigned in September 2010 with the team 15th in the table 10 matches into 2010–11.[35][36]

2010–

Tamworth manager Gary Mills was appointed in October 2010,[37] and he led York to sixth place in 2010–11.[36] In his first full season in charge, Mills led York to victory in the 2012 FA Trophy Final over Newport County, and subsequently in the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final over Luton Town.[38][39] By winning the play-offs, York were promoted into League Two, meaning the club returned into the Football League after an eight-year absence.[39] Mills was dismissed in March 2013 after a run of 11 matches without a win left York in 18th place.[40][41] Former Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington guided York away from relegation with four wins from the last five matches of 2012–13.[42] Worthington led York to the League Two play-offs in 2013–14, and they were beaten 1–0 on aggregate in the semi-final by Fleetwood Town.[43] With only one win from his last 17 matches in charge, Worthington resigned in October 2014.[44] Former Scunthorpe United manager Russ Wilcox was appointed,[45] and York avoided relegation after a run of four wins from five matches late into 2014–15.[46][47]

Wilcox was dismissed in October 2015 after a nine-match run without a win left York 21st in the table,[48] and was succeeded by the former Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara in November.[49] York went on a run of one win from the last 16 fixtures,[50] and were relegated into the National League after finishing bottom of League Two.[51] This marked the end of York's four-year return into the Football League.[52] With the team 19th in the National League,[53] Gary Mills was reappointed manager in October 2016,[54] shortly after he was dismissed by Wrexham.[55] McNamara remained at the club after taking on the role of chief executive.[54]
