National League side York City have re-appointed Gary Mills as manager, three days after he was sacked by Wrexham.

Mills, 54, previously managed York from October 2010 to March 2013, leading them to promotion to League Two.

He replaces Jackie McNamara, who offered to resign after York failed to get a “positive result” at Braintree earlier this month.

Mills’ first game in charge will be Monday’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round replay at Curzon Ashton.

A statement on York’s website said that following an interview process Mills was “the person most qualified to take the team forward”.

It added: “Gary brings with him a depth of knowledge and experience at this level, together with a track record of getting the most out of players and is well known for his exciting, attacking and, when necessary, pragmatic brand of football to achieve positive results.”

He re-joins York with the club 19th in the National League after winning just three times in 15 league games since being relegated from League Two last season.

Mills was sacked by Wrexham on Thursday after 18 months in charge at the Racecourse Ground.
