John McGhee appointed as York City’s general manager

York Press: John McGhee John McGhee

YORK City have appointed John McGhee as the club’s general manager.

McGhee, 58, will start the new role next month having retired from his position heading Yorkshire Bank’s portfolio, assurance and advisory team for the North of England.

He has worked for the bank since leaving school and, during that time, forged links with a number of professional football and rugby clubs.

McGhee, pictured, is a keen Sheffield Wednesday supporter and is relishing his new position, saying: “I am passionate about the game of football and I hope my background can benefit the business in many ways and help to enhance the supporters’ experience.

“I will be as accessible as possible to all the staff and supporters and look forward to meeting everyone when I start my role in April.”

Commenting on McGhee’s arrival, City chairman Jason McGill added: “John is extremely experienced at a senior level and will be responsible for implementing the board’s strategy for the club going forward.”

This is a move that starts the bells ringing for me. The board have made their
intentions clear, they appear to have assessed the other clubs in the league and it seems to me they are steeling a march on them ,City since appointing
NW have been more professional in recruiting players ,now its the turn in the organisational side. When we move into the new stadium everything needs to be right, the overheads will increase, budgets will be tighter , we will need another 1000 on the gate. and additional sponsors, This is clearly where
Mr McGHEE Be needed The spade work has to start now, GREAT MOVE THIS,

Bang on BB. Has to be good and the message in the press release around being accessible is really good news. It's all about being professional in everything the club does. He's said it so often Mr McGill...."little by little etc etc. This is a step along the way I think.
Delighted.....wonder if he's got a pair of boots

agree with what your saying bill but i have been lead to believe that moving into the new community stadium would in fact lower our overheads but we do need a bigger gate if we are to compete in league one but 2500 to 3000 is i'm afraid about our level and with a lot of fans saying that they wont be prepared to travel to monks cross we will do well to maintain this but i'm sure that all the true city fans will come where ever we play

I understand the points your making, as I understand it we will be paying 150k pa to the owners when we move, although rent for BC is an entry in the books but its just a paper transfer I suspect not seeing the books I don't know, If what you say about numbers at the new stadium turn out to be correct then the 6000 size is about right,

We haven't had as little as 2500 Av attendance since we were rubbish in the conference.

Our level is Easily 3500+ as shown this year with around an Av of 3,600 and last with pretty much bang on 4,000.
