FORMER York City boss Terry Dolan was looking for work today after parting company with Guiseley.

The terms of his departure - in the same week as Billy McEwan's sacking by the Minstermen - were likely to be announced today, but last night the UniBond League club refused to confirm whether he had been given the boot.

Guiseley general manager Bob Marchant did confirm, however, Dolan would not be in charge for the FA Trophy tie game at home to Worcester, with assistant-boss Mark Ellis leading the team.

Marchant said: "Terry Dolan is leaving the club. The owners of the club were still talking to him about the terms of his leaving and at this point we can't say who is driving what."

Dolan, who managed Rochdale, Bradford City and Hull as well as York in the Football League, had taken over at Guiseley in October last year, taking the reins from Neil Parsley. They were third in the UniBond premier division at the time, and are now fourth, having lost their last two games to mid-table sides Buxton and Worksop. It is believed the club are unhappy with the progress made under the 57-year-old, as well as the style of football being played at Nethermoor.

Dolan's departure from Guiseley, following Billy McEwan's dismissal from the KitKat Crescent hot seat, means he could be linked with a possible return to the Minstermen - although his relationship with the current City board soured.
