Former York City manager leaves Farsley Celtic after surviving
Wilcox took charge of York in October 2014 following the retirement of Neil Worthington but has struggled to change City’s form.
The 59-year-old has led Bootham Crescent for 54 games but has recorded just 13 wins and a mere 24.1 percent win percentage.
The Minstermen finished 18th under Wilcox and survived the Sky Bet League Two season before being sacked in October 2015 after a disappointing start to the new season with City fourth in the table.
Wilcox has been a coach at Farsley Celtic ever since and became a fan favorite after keeping the Celtics safe for two straight seasons.
Farsley survived the Vanarama National League North relapse on the final day of the 2022-23 season by just a point, despite recording just one win in five games.
Wilcox wrote a statement to the League Managers Association which said: “Thank you to everyone associated with Farsley Celtic Football Club for the opportunity to manage your club.”
“For me, going back to where it all began in non-league football has been a new and exciting challenge. My first task after taking office at the end of January 2022 was to try to retain Nationalliga Nord status as the team had not won in the last three months and are firmly bottom of the league.
“We had to find ways to win football games and earn enough points to keep us in this league. Luckily, against all odds, we were able to push through the results and save ourselves on the final day of the season, and we celebrated like we’d won promotion!
“In the 2022-2023 season we once again managed to fend off the threat of relegation and finally finished fifth with our hard-working and dedicated semi-professional squad.
“It doesn’t matter what level you work at, the thrill and spirit of football remains the same at all levels, from the Premier League to the local grassroots leagues.”
