Chris Doig

2 August 2015

Assistant Manager

Assistant manager Chris Doig took on the role in May 2014 and only officially retired from playing in the summer to concentrate on his coaching duties.


Born in Scotland, Chris started his playing career at hometown club Queen of the South before he was quickly snapped up by Nottingham Forest at the age of 17.


He spent seven years at Forest, making 93 appearances over his spell there and made a number of appearances against Town during that time, with him also making two appearances in the Premier League in his first season as a professional.


Chris also had a successful loan spell at Northampton Town whilst at Forest in 2003 and he returned there two years later, becoming club captain as the Saddlers were promoted as League One runners up.


He spent four years at Northampton, leaving in the summer of 2009 and spent spells abroad at Australian A-League side Central Coast Mariners and Indonesian team Pelita Jaya before coming back to England and having a short spell at Aldershot Town. Chris joined York City in February 2012 and started their 2-1 play-off final over Luton Town at Wembley Stadium in July 2012 before taking part in their first ever Football League season.


After leaving York, Chris joined a number of his former Minstermen teammates in a player-coach role at Town in August 2013, having a memorable debut against Gateshead on   when he scored the winning goal in a 2-1 win.


Despite taking the assistant manager role last season, Chris did play four National League games in the early stages of the campaign, but is now fully focused on assisting Paul Hurst and will also take charge of the side's reserve team this coming season.
