YORK City have confirmed the shock sacking of popular manager John Askey - but should he have been fired?

Askey took charge of York, initially on an interim basis, in November, before becoming manager on a permanent basis in March.

He then led City to promotion through the Vanarama National League North play-offs and delivered a Isuzu FA Trophy semi-final spot.

Askey, who turned down a move to Sky Bet League Two club Rochdale to sign a new deal until the end of 2023/24 in September, has since guided York to 12th after 19 matches in the National League.

So the sacking has left many fans shocked.
