10 August 2018 : Yeovil Town Appoint New Chief Operating Officer
Yeovil Town have appointed David Mills as the club's new Chief Operating Officer. Although it is badged as a 'newly created position' by the club, its definition appears to mirror that previously occupied by Martyn Starnes between December 2007 and July 2013 at Huish Park as the club's Chief Executive. The club state that he will be responsible for non-first team activity at the club, overseeing Yeovil Town Academy and being Chairman of the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust. Chairman John Fry will be 'concentrating exclusively on strategic policy and ground redevelopment at Huish Park' - the division that he chose when Starnes arrived at the club.

David had been titled as the club's Business Development Manager - that position will now disappear from the club's employment structure. He was also the club's Supporters Director but will be resigning that position with immediate effect due to the conflict of interest. He will remain as an Associate Director - a non-Board position - which he has held since his time with Yeovil Town Ladies, a position he was appointed to in 2013. Chairman John Fry has said of the new appointment:

"Over the last year, David has developed a first-class understanding of how the club needs to move forward off the field. I have given David a mandate to bring change and more positive thinking to off the field operations where they need that type of support. Having said that, there are some hugely committed people in the off the field team and we need to make sure these talented people are best utilised and given support to develop. It is also vital that the Academy and Community Sports Trust operations continue to grow but with improved linkages to the main part of the club, particularly the first team."

The club plan to discuss the future role of the Supporters Director at the next Supporters Alliance Meeting.
