York City’s four-year stay in The Football League has come to an end following a 3-0 defeat at the hands of high-flying Accrington Stanley.
"We're down not because of today; we're relegated because of the season - so many bad performances," McNamara told Minstermen Player HD.
"It [relegation] has been hanging over us for a few weeks. It's disappointing - not something you want, but we've paid the price for not being good enough in certain games.
"Not holding onto victories, wasting points, sloppiness, concentration – there are so many things you can put your finger on that have cost us this season, and we've paid the price for that
"I don't believe we're the worst or the second worst team in the league but certain things today have shown there are certain weaknesses in our team."
