Nigel Worthington Named New York Manager

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 04 March 2013, 09:28

York City's brief search for a new manager has come to an end, with Nigel Worthington coming in to replace the sacked Gary Mills. The latter was sent packing on Saturday after the club lost 2-0 at home to Bradford, a result which left them 18th in League Two and 11 matches without a win.

It will be Worthington's first job in management since leaving Northern Ireland two years ago. He will now need to draw on all of his experience in order to keep the struggling club in the Football League. York are currently just four points above the relegation zone and have played a game more than nearly all of their rivals.
Nigel Worthington
Worthington's maiden managers role came at Blackpool in 1997, before moving to work with Norwich at the start of the century. It was at Carrow Road where he really proved his credentials as he led the Canaries to promotion up to the Premier League in his first full season in charge. He went on to take charge of his country from 2007 to 2011 but was unable to guide them to either World Cup 2010 or Euro 2012.

Worthington's first game in the York dugout is away to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday. The 51-year-old will be looking to lead the Minstermen to their first win since New Year's Day as he bids to save them from the dreaded drop. At the moment they have odds of 5/1 with Paddy Power to suffer relegation at the end of the season.
