Redfearn linked with York City job



Leeds United academy boss Neil Redfearn is one of the frontrunners for the vacant manager’s position at York City, reports HITC Sport. 

Nigel Worthington resigned yesterday with the club one place above the League Two relegation zone. The Minstermen lost 3-1 to Newport County at the weekend and have just won once in the league all season.

His former number two Steve Torpey has stepped in for the time being in a caretaker capacity.

Redfearn had previously worked at York City as a youth team coach and even had a spell as caretaker manager in 2008.

He also stepped in as caretaker manager at Leeds United earlier this season following the sacking of Dave Hockaday and led the club to three wins in four matches in the Championship.

The former Barnsley and Bradford City midfielder returned to his role as academy manager following the appointment of Darko Milanic.

Redfearn had stated he would like to return to full-time management at some point but insists there is a job to do at Elland Road.

His last permanent manager role was at Northwich Victoria in 2007 where he resigned after just nine matches following eight defeats and one draw that left the Cheshire club bottom of the Conference National at the time.
