Yeovil Town's first team management pair of Terry Skiverton and Nathan Jones have signed new contracts at Huish Park. The duo have agreed new deals that will keep them at the club until the summer of 2013, following contract negotiations that have been taking place during the year of 2011.
The new two and a half year deals replace the unspecified deal that they had been on during this season, even though the Glovers have yet to guarantee their League One status for next season. Quoting Chief Executive Martyn Starnes as describing the deal as "Great, excellent, smashing" and stating that the pair had "done a fantastic job" the club statement speaks of stability and continuity.
Manager Terry Skiverton says that the club are operating to a long term plan and that the Glovers plan to reduce their use of the loan market that has seen them clock up 16 loan deals during the 2010-11 season. The Yeovil boss claims that there will be less use of this in the coming season although doesn't set any targets in this area yet:
"There is a longer term plan in place which includes the recruitment of new players and with this backing from the board, it really helps me get on with my job. Over the next few years, we want to add to players like Paul Huntington, Luke Ayling and Ed Upson and start to build a strong squad so that we won't have to rely on the loan market to such a degree."
