Gallagher leaves physio role

By Dan Simmonite | 3rd August 2020

Head Physiotherapist Ian ‘Buster’ Gallagher has left York City after three seasons administering on-the-pitch treatment to City's injured players on matchdays and steering them back to fitness.

Buster joined City after over 23 years at Hartlepool United and now feels the time is right to leave due to personal reasons.

A much-loved member of the backroom staff at Bootham Crescent, Buster leaves with the best wishes from the management team and everyone at York City Football Club.

Wishing his farewells to the club, Buster said: “It was a really hard decision. I’ve been here nearly three years now and loved every minute of it, made some great friends and the club has been different class to me and my family.

“I’m excited but at the same time gutted about leaving York. They will be the first result I look out for and will come to games whenever I can. I just want to say thank you and good luck.”

Manager Steve Watson added: "I got on really well with the bloke, the lads love him and he goes wth my blessing."
