York City’s four year stay in the Football League has finally ended after Jackie McNamara’s side lost 3-0 at Accrington Stanley on Saturday afternoon.

A first half mistake from City goalkeeper Scott Flinders allowed Tariqe Fosu to open the scoring before Josh Windass added gloss to the home side’s victory in the second half as he netted twice.

The Minstermen now face an uncertain future back in non league football under the leadership of unpopular manager Jackie McNamara with City looking highly unlikely to return to the Football League at the first attempt. After the club’s relegation to back to the National League was confirmed, fans took to Twitter to air their opinions.

The Minstermen will now play for pride in their last two league fixtures against Bristol Rovers (home) and Morecambe (away).
