York City have opted to part company with manager Martin Gray less than a year after his appointment.
The ex-Darlington boss leaves the National League North side after picking up two wins and a draw from his opening five games of the season.
The club released the following statement:
York City Football Club has today parted company with manager Martin Gray.
The club has informed Martin that his contract will not be renewed and he has now left his post with immediate effect.
The club’s Board of Directors would like to thank Martin for his services and wishes him all the best for the future.
The Board of Directors provided Martin with all the necessary financial support to rebuild his squad this summer after the team had missed out on last season’s promotion play-offs.
Regrettably, it is felt that a change is now needed.
Assistant-manager Sean Gregan is also leaving with immediate effect and the board thanks him for his services and wishes him all the best for the future.
There will be no further comment at this stage.
