Russ Wilcox confirmed as York City boss

Russ Wilcox is appointed as the new manager of York City, just one week after being sacked by Scunthorpe United.

York City have confirmed the appointment of Russ Wilcox as their new manager.

The 50-year-old was sacked from his position in charge of Scunthorpe United last week after less than a year at the helm.

Wilcox, who was voted League Two manager of the year last season, takes over the vacant managerial spot at Bootham Crescent following Nigel Worthington's recent resignation.

"We welcome Russ Wilcox to York City Football Club," chairman Jason McGill told the club's official website. "We believe he is the right person to take this club forward. He has excellent managerial experience and a track record of success in League Two. He is a hard working individual and an excellent motivator and someone who shares our vision for the club now and in the future."

Wilcox added: "I am delighted to be the new manager of York City Football Club and I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead of me. The club has great potential, with a new stadium on the horizon, and I feel I have the experience to help York City achieve success in League Two.

"I'm looking forward to meeting all the coaching staff and players on Thursday ahead of our home game against Shrewsbury on Saturday. I'm very excited and pleased to be embarking on this new journey."

Steve Torpey will join Wilcox as assistant manager with the League Two outfit looking to push away from the relegation zone.
