York City are in search of a new Academy manager after Andy McMillan decided to leave his post after two years in charge yesterday.

Bootham Crescent hero McMillan is second behind Barry Jackson in the club’s all-time appearance list, but had been asked to re-apply for his position this summer.

The former defender previously worked in youth coaching at Lincoln, Barnet and Notts County after spending 12 years as a player at York between 1987 and 1999.

The club issued a statement, which said: “York City can confirm that Andy McMillan has decided to leave his role as Academy manager. The club wish him well for the future.”

Youth team manager Steve Torpey, lead youth development phase coach Mark Spencer and lead foundation phase coach Tom Sutton will oversee the running of the Academy on a temporary basis until a permanent successor is identified.
