Gary Mills will stay as York City manager next season.

It means he will get a shot at bringing the club straight back up after they were relegated to National League North on Saturday.

Jason McGill said in a statement on Monday that he wanted Mills to remain, albeit on terms “commensurate with the status of a club playing in the National League North”.

Two days later Mills requested that the contract was sent to his advisors, the League Managers’ Association (LMA).

Today (Friday) the club issued this statement:

York City is pleased to announce that terms have been agreed for Gary Mills to remain as York City manager for the 2017/18 campaign.

Having sent his proposed contract to the LMA for review, both parties have now agreed on terms for Gary to stay with the club for next season.

The club is thankful that the situation has been resolved efficiently.

We are now looking forward to the FA Trophy Final at Wembley, as well as further ahead to next season with Gary at the helm in the National League North.

Many supporters welcomed the appointment

The news comes after the club revealed tickets will be reduced next season.

It said the average discount of 30% was “to reward the loyalty of our supporters and especially to encourage our young fans to continue their support”.

Whilst the biggest discount is for the younger generation, there are also discounts of around 20% for adult tickets.

And a season ticket for an adult in the David Longhurst Stand has been discounted to £199 if you buy early.

The club said: “The board has taken the decision to offer these discounted prices as a reward to loyal fans, whilst maintaining full-time playing staff and infrastructure and a competitive playing budget.”
