York City have confirmed that chairman Jason McGill will have no further involvement in the club, with a new board consisting of four directors announced.
Jackie McNamara is also departing his role as CEO. The following statement was posted on the National League North club’s website:
Further to the decision by a majority of 139 York City Supporters’ Trust members to decline the J M Packaging offer of financing the football club until the opening of the new Community Stadium and, as a consequence, the decision by J M Packaging to offer the Company’s interest in York City Football Club for sale, the club has today issued the following statement.
“With immediate effect the Chairman, Jason McGill, is retiring from his role and will have no further involvement in the running of the club.
With immediate effect CEO, Jackie McNamara, is leaving York City Football Club.
With immediate effect a new board of directors has been established to run the football club with the pressing need to produce a breakeven position whilst maintaining the aspiration of success.
The new board consists of four directors:
Ian McAndrew, Chartered Surveyor, as Stadium Development Director
Dave Penney as Sporting Director
Richard Adams as Marketing and Communications Director
Steven Kilmartin, Chartered Accountant, who will join as Managing Director in due course. Steven – under secondment from Hentons – will also undertake a thorough review of the club’s finances immediately.
