York City have appointed Martin Foyle as the club's new manager.

The 45-year-old takes over from Colin Walker, who was relieved of his duties with immediate effect on Friday.

Foyle spent three-and-a-half years in charge at Port Vale between 2004 and 2007 and was assistant to Brian Little at Wrexham until October.

"Martin has an extremely good knowledge of Conference football and what is required to succeed in this division," said York chairman Jason McGill.

"He also has the very best coaching qualifications and having been a centre-forward himself, we believe he will help our strikers to develop and grow."

Foyle broke Vale's post-war goalscoring record during his own playing career at Vale Park, with 107 goals from 356 appearances, and also had spells with Southampton, Aldershot and Oxford United.

He spent two years as director of youth football at Port Vale before becoming the club's first-team boss.
