York appointed Chris Brass as player-manager on June 4th 2003.
The club's skipper, 27-years-old at the time, became the youngest manager in the Football League after taking over from Terry Dolan.
Lee Nogan, who was one of eight players released by the club as part of the cost-cutting measures in May 2003, was named as Brass' assistant.
"I've always envisaged at some stage of my career that I would manage one day, but I didn't think it would happen at such an early age," said Brass.
Brass continued his coaching career following his retirement and was appointed as Head Coach of Bury FC in December 2016.
