Vanarama National League strugglers York City have released a statement confirming that manager Jackie McNamara will tender his resignation if they fail to get a positive result at Braintree Town on Saturday.

Following Tuesday night’s 6-1 hammering at Guiseley, the Minstermen currently sit in 20th position in the National League table, with McNamara’s revamped squad struggling to cope with life after relegation from the Football League.

The Bootham Crescent outfit are without a win in their last six games and have each lost their last four games.

The heavy defeat at fellow strugglers Guiseley has led to speculation that former Celtic and Wolves defender McNamara would leave his position at the club, but now the Minstermen have released a statement clarifying their manager’s position.

The statement in full read “Following a meeting with the Chairman this morning, and in light of the disappointing performance and result last night, York City manager Jackie McNamara has considered his position going forward.

It has been decided that, if the team fails to gain a positive result at Braintree Town on Saturday, the York City manager will tender his resignation.

The manager will be looking for a passionate and committed reaction from the players after the capitulation at Nethermoor Park on Tuesday evening”
