Yeovil Town Appoint Paul Sturrock

Paul SturrockAs expected Yeovil Town have announced the appointment of Paul Sturrock, who replaces acting manager Terry Skiverton at the helm of the League One club. Sturrock left his advisory role at Torquay on Wednesday (after just four days), fuelling reports that he was set to take charge of the Glovers, news that has today (Thursday) been confirmed by the club. Meanwhile, Skiverton will revert to assistant manager, with Darren Way as first team coach.

Sturrock's last managerial position was at Southend United, a club he spent three years at; between 2010 and 2013. The 58-year-old has a wealth of experience, having previously taken charge of the likes of Southampton, Plymouth (twice), Swindon, Sheffield Wednesday, plus the Scottish duo of St. Johnstone and Dundee United.

During his managerial career Sturrock has won promotion with Swindon Town, Sheff Wed, Plymouth (twice) and St. Johnstone, however the Scot finds himself in an entirely different situation at Yeovil.

Sturrock inherits a side struggling at the basement of the third-tier, 13 points from safety, with only five matches remaining. Bar a staggering miracle of epic proportions, the Glovers - who have lost their last six successive fixtures - will be relegated down to League Two, however their new boss will be eager to finish the season strongly.

Sturrock takes charge of his first match on Saturday, when his new side host relegation rivals Notts County at Huish Park. Yeovil can be backed at 6/4 (Betfred) to end their rotten run with a rare win, whereas a draw can be found at 5/2. Meanwhile, the 22nd-placed visitors, who are without a win in seven, have been handed odds of 21/10 to conjure up a valuable victory.

Yeovil's Remaining Fixtures

  • Notts County (h)
  • Sheff Utd (h)
  • Yeovil (a)
  • Port Vale (h)
  • MK Dons (a)
