Cresswell, who began his playing career at Bootham Crescent, has been followed out the door by development phase coach Jonathan Greening, who is from Scarborough.

The Minstermen announced the decision yesterday and said the pair had departed by ‘mutual consent’.

A brief statement on the club’s website said: “Everyone at the football club would like to thank Richard and Jonathan for their contributions since returning to York City.”

After spells at Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds and Stoke City, Cresswell returned to York at the end of his playing days.

He took over as caretaker manager for one game after Russ Wilcox left earlier this season, but City moved quickly to bring in ex-Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara.

The club are currently bottom of the table and have not won any of their last 11 matches.

Former Manchester United and West Brom midfielder Greening, who was at Tadcaster Albion last season, registered as a player in November and made three appearances for York, but was sent off in his final game, the 6-0 defeat at Portsmouth.
