Former Coventry City Reserve Team Manager Gary Mills has been sacked by York City.
Mills, who has also managed at Tamworth and Notts County, had been in charge of a York side that had gone eleven matches without a win and after the 2-0 home defeat to local rivals Bradford City, the York City board ended Mills tenure.
York's board then issued a statement which reads: "It is with regret that the York City board of directors has terminated the contract of manager Gary Mills with immediate effect.
"The recent playing form, which has resulted in the team achieving only six points out of a possible 33, has led the board to this extremely difficult decision.
"The absolute priority is to safeguard the club's Football League status and an improvement in results is essential due to our current league position.
"We would like to thank Gary for his great contribution to York City and for managing last season's promotion team. We wish Gary the very best for his future career.
"The board hopes to make an announcement regarding the club's new manager within the next week."
