Yeovil Town have formally unveiled former Plymouth Argyle and Southend United boss Paul Sturrock as their new manager. The 58 year old comes in as the club's permanent replacement to Gary Johnson, who left the club in early February, with the club having been looked after on an 'acting' basis by Terry Skiverton and Darren Way since that event.
Sturrock took charge of first team training this morning, supported by Skiverton and Way. There is no length of contract specified at present, whilst yesterday's job title of 'Football Operations Manager' has disappeared from the club's press release. He is expected to have a full involvement in training ground, dressing room and dug-out activities. Skiverton and Way will form part of his management team, with them reverting to their Assistant Manager and Technical Coach titles from now on.
More details to follow later. For a full profile on Paul's management career so far, see yesterday's news item.
