Published Add your comment

After three years in charge, Yeovil have sacked manager Gary Johnson with the club four points adrift at the bottom of League One.

In his second spell at Yeovil, Johnson led the club into the Championship for the first time in their history but relegation last season has been followed up with a bitterly disappointing campaign this time round.

The club have also announced that assistant manager Terry Skiverton will take over as caretaker manager with Darren Way as his assistant.

Chairman John Fry told the club's website: “The decision to relieve Gary of his management duties is the hardest I have been involved in during my 23 years at Huish Park.


"I cannot speak too highly of the man who in the past brought so much success to our club. We part company on good terms and I would like personally to wish him well for the future.

"Gary took the Glovers from the Conference to the Championship and is regarded as one of the best managers in the Football League".

"More importantly, he is one of the most successful managers in Yeovil Town's 119 year history.”

After just five league wins this season, Fry was left with no choice but to change this as Yeovil languish rock bottom of League One.
