Former Yeovil Town goalkeeper Tony Pennock is being connected with the first team management vacancy at Huish Park. The 48 year old is currently a first team coach at Hull City and the Hull Daily Mail is claiming that Tony "has been identified as a potential candidate" for the job.
Pennock is currently favourite with the bookmakers for the job, although the paper claims that their information has come from a non-bookies source. He's had two spells with Hull, having first joined them in 2014 as their Academy Manager. He became First Team Coach in November 2016, but a change of management led to him leaving the club entirely in January 2017. In June 2017, he returned to the club after another management change saw them ask him to return.
Aside from his roles at Hull, he managed Port Talbot Town during the 2007-08 season and also had a brief spell in charge of Welsh Premier League side Aberystwyth Town for a brief period during 2017 in between his two Hull spells. Pennock was also in charge of the Welsh semi-professional side. Earlier in his career, Pennock was Swansea City's goalkeeper coach, and in July 2008 he was also given the role of head Of Youth Development at the Liberty Stadium.
Pennock is of course a modern day legend at Yeovil Town, having made 307 appearances for the club between 1995 and 2001 during their Conference league days. He left a year after the club made the decision to go full time. Pennock also scored twice for the Glovers during his career - both from the penalty spot. He netted during the tail end of the 1996-97 season against Chertsey Town after the club had won the Isthmian League title, but also scored during an FA Cup penalty shoot-out against West Auckland in November 1998.
