York sack Jackie McNamara and then name Jackie McNamara as caretaker manager
What on earth is going on at the York Community Stadium?

YORK CITY MANAGER Jackie McNamara has stepped down from his role, but he remains in caretaker charge at the Community Stadium.

The former Partick Thistle and Dundee United boss resigned as manager of the Minstermen at the weekend after York’s winless run was extended to seven games after a 1-1 draw with Braintree Town.

McNamara remains at the helm for the time being, however, with the club keeping him in place on a caretaker basis while they identify a replacement.

A club statement released on Monday read: “After purposeful discussions it was agreed that results and performances, in the main, have not been acceptable nor have they achieved the high standards expected.

“In order to assist the managerial transition period, and to accommodate a thorough identification, interview and appointment process, the chairman has asked Jackie McNamara to train and prepare the team until a suitable candidate has been determined.

“This process should be completed within two weeks.”

York currently find themselves in 19th place in the National League, the fifth tier of English football, with just three points separating them from the relegation spots.
