Mick Ramsden not in for York City Knights job

York City Knights

York City Knights assistant coach Mick Ramsden insists he is not interested in taking over from coach Chris Thorman, who is departing the club.

Thorman will leave the Championship side at the end of the campaign to take up an assistant position at Super League side Huddersfield Giants.

Ramsden told BBC Radio York: "I've got a great job away from rugby which I've worked very hard on over a long period.

"I love doing this so hopefully I'll be involved next year."

York fell to a 44-10 defeat at Sheffield Eagles on Friday, their fourth defeat by the Eagles this season.

And Ramsden was unhappy with how his side fell away in the second half of the match.

"I thought the first half was reasonable and we were confident ahead of the second so I'm disappointed with what happened after that," he continued.

"The guys started to drop off tackles that they should have been making.

"I can't put my finger on why that happened. It seems to be that when teams build up a 12 or 16 point lead on us we just fall apart at the moment."

York remain second from bottom in the Championship, having won just once in the league this season.
