last updated Friday 11th February 2005, 3:34 PM
York City Football Club today announced caretaker manager, Viv Busby, has left the club by mutual consent and Billy McEwan has been appointed York City’s new 1st team manager.

Commenting on Viv Busby’s departure, managing director, Jason McGill said, “On behalf of the club and our supporters, I would like to thank Viv Busby for the positive contribution he has made to York City F.C. under extremely difficult circumstances.”

McGill added, “We greatly appreciate his efforts in helping to stabilize playing performance and his helpful and enthusiastic approach to the role of caretaker manager. We would like to wish Viv all the best for the future.”

Commenting on the new appointment Jason McGill said, “The Board of York City Football club believes this is an excellent appointment and welcome Billy McEwan to the club.”

Stephen Gartside of fansite minstermen.net noted that Busby only tasted victory four times during his 14-match caretaker reign, though acquitted himself well in difficult circumstances as rumours heightened of his authority being undermined by a number of senior members within the camp.
