Yeovil Town manager Darren Way has signed a new three-year contract with the club. He took over the job in December 2015 following the departure of Paul Sturrock. The Glovers have lost just three of their last 16 matches.
Way, who played 273 times for the Huish Park club as a player, originally penned a deal that lasted until the end of the season. The club seemed destined for relegation a few months ago, but Way has guided the club well clear of any concerns.
The 36-year-old, in his first football management role, couldn’t hide his delight at extending his stay with a club that he holds a great amount of affection for,
“Since I was a young lad it has always been my dream to become a professional footballer and follow that up by becoming a football manager.
“It was a massive honour for me to lead this great football club out as captain when we played our first game in the Football League against Rochdale after 108 years in non-league football and now I am leading the club as manager.
“The history this fantastic club has is remarkable and it has been my biggest job not to be scared and keep this club alive.”
“We have found an extraordinary leader and manager in Darren, who has the full backing of everyone at Huish Park, not only to build a squad, but a Club, that will achieve and sustain League One status within the next five seasons. He will not let our supporters down.”
