Adam Hinshelwood has left his post as boss of high-flying Worthing.

The former Albion defender has taken charge of York City, who are currently just above the relegation zone in the National League.

Aarran Racine has taken over as interim first team manager, assisted by Darren Budd and ex-Seagulls skipper Dean Hammond.

Hinshelwood has signed a "long-term deal" as per the York statement and is joined in the move north by assistant Gary Elphick and coach Cameron Morrison.

The news will come as a bombshell to Rebels fans, whose team are on course to make the promotion play-offs in Vanarama National League, despite two recent defeats.

Hinshelwood led Worthing to the Isthmian League title after twice seeing seasons halted by Covid when they were top of the table.

He was also the club’s academy manager.
