Yeovil Town have appointed Darren Way as their new manager after a spell as interim boss, the club has announced.

Way first joined the club in 2000 when he signed as a player, he went onto make over 220 appearances for Yeovil Town.

Following his retirement in 2008, Way took up his coaching badges and has been involved in the coaching set-up at the club ever since.

His first game in charge of Yeovil saw a 1-0 win against Stevenage in the FA Cup second round, resulting in a third round tie against Carlisle United.

Speaking about his appointment, Way told the club’s website that “I am very, very honoured and privileged to become the manager of Yeovil Town.

“I am ready to take this club into battle and secure our Football League status. I feel the players have given everything for me since I have taken charge and the supporters have shown a lot of love and respect towards the players and the football club.

“I feel I have worked very hard to be given this opportunity. I have shown the same passion and commitment as a manager that I did when I played.

“As it stands right now, the club needs passion and commitment and I am sure there is enough around the town and community with everyone pulling in the same direction to maintain our league status.

“I fully respect the fans who have turned up week in week out to show their support and I think they can see the change since I took over. Keep positive and lets keep marching on.”

Way is set to be officially unveiled at a press conference this afternoon.
