 David Webb has been building his support staff further with a new Goalkeeper Coach in Joe Stead and Assistant Coach in James Thwaite, with more detailed exciting first team news coming this week regarding players. 

 Off the pitch, we are continuing to evolve the vision for the club, with a new strategic appointment of Paula Stainton as Interim General Manager. Paula will support the Football Club Board of Directors in making progress on the action plan and provide the operational direction and support for the club staff, as well as providing consistency for sponsors and partners.

 Paula joined the club in 2009, and has developed the small department of York City in the Community into a thriving charitable organisation, York City FC Foundation.  With the Foundation, Paula leads a team of staff on a daily basis working across numerous initiatives, giving her a wealth of experience and knowledge that is vital for this role, plus prior working relationships with many of the necessary partners such as the Stadium Management Company, GLL, CGC, YCFC Vice Presidents and the Supporters Trust.

 Glen Henderson, YCFC Chairman, said: “Paula is well respected by peers and fans alike, and she has 100% backing from the entire Board of Directors.

 “Her business expertise matches her passion for community development, and she leads by example in regard to the Foundation’s vision to make a positive difference. She recognises the importance of the football family and our fanbase, as well as engaging with new potential fans."
