Collins replace former Darlington manager Martin Gray back in August, but as a caretaker, switching from being a youth team manager.
He got the full time position after his side picked up four wins from eight matches.
However, yesterday’s loss by Curzon Ashton – who hadn’t kept a clean sheet at home – left chairman Jason McGill and the board no choice but to give him the boot.
A story by the York Press emerged on Sunday morning stating that caretaker Dave Penney will not be considered for the club’s managerial vacancy and they plan to make a new appointment before the trip to Stockport a week on Saturday.
After learning that Sam Collins left the club, hundreds of supporters took to York City social media pages to voice their anger at the current owners as well as feeling sorry for the departee – take a look at what they had to say on the next page.
