York City’s much-respected youth-team manager Steve Torpey is leaving Bootham Crescent and taking up a role with the PFA.

The 47-year-old is becoming a coach educator in their north-east region and departs his current position in just over a week.

Torpey has twice filled in as caretaker manager for the Minstermen in the past and also served as assistant under a couple of different bosses, Russ Wilcox and Nigel Worthington.

He originally joined them as youth-team coach in December 2008, and also made a couple of senior appearances for the club.

His earlier playing career totalled in excess of 750 first-team games and approaching a double century of goals, while including spells at Scunthorpe United, Bradford City, Swansea City and Bristol City.
