Next York City Manager Odds: John Askey linked with return
York City are once again on the hunt for a new manager after they sacked David Webb.
Webb, appointed in December, lasted all of 10 matches (W4 D1 L5) spanning just 69 days.
Tuesday's 3-2 defeat to Solihull Moors was the club's fourth league loss on the spin and proved to be the final straw for the National League side who dangle four points above the relegation zone in 18th.
BetVictor have now reopened the next York City manager odds, which we have taken a look at in more detail below.
In as the early favourite in the betting is the manager who David Webb replaced in December: John Askey.
The popular Askey spent a year in charge during which he fired York City to promotion into the National League, via the play-offs.
In truth, Askey's sacking in November appeared harsh given that The Minstermen were 12th in the table upon their return to the division, while the manner of his dismissal could well ruin any chance of a return three months later.
"To have to stand in front of a printer and wait for a letter to be printed off and then be given it to see that I had been sacked... that hurt me more than anything," he told BBC Radio York at the time.
"I'm disappointed with how it's been done. They talked about me coming in to talk to them and said it was about my contract. I said if it was about my contract I would need legal help and they said just to come in and pick the letter up. I think I deserve better than that. I think anybody does."
However, if the powers that be can mend the broken bridges with Askey, his return for a second spell would be widely popular with fans.
Next in the running, you can find Russell Penn and Phil Parkinson at 8/1.
Former York City midfielder Penn has been in charge of National League North promotion contenders Kidderminster Harriers since 2020 and memorably came within seconds of booting West Ham out of the FA Cup a year ago.
Parkinson has been at the helm of Altrincham since 2017 and has his troops above York City in 14th. NOTE that he's not to be confused with the Wrexham manager of the same name who currently shows at 8/1 in the betting (this is an error).
Ex-Crewe manager David Artell and former Notts County and Forest Green Rovers head coach Ian Burchnall are both located at 12s, then you can find the experienced duo of Graham Alexander and Nigel Adkins at 16/1.
33/1 outsiders include Phil Brown, John McGreal, and Jim Gannon.
