Sky Bet League Two strugglers Yeovil Town have parted company with manager Darren Way after more than three years in charge at Huish Park according to reports by The Glovers’ official website.

The Somerset outfit find themselves just one place and two points above the relegation zone after a sequence of four consecutive league defeats.

Yeovil Town’s 16-year stay in the English Football League is in serious danger of coming to an end and the club have made the decision to sack manager Way. The 39-year-old leaves The Glovers after winning 56 of his 189 matches in charge of the Somerset club.

As well as managing Yeovil Town, Way also represented the club as a player. The former midfielder won two promotions with The Glovers while he also won the FA Trophy with The Green and Whites. Way was named in the Team of the Year in the respective divisions in which he played on three occasions and he is very much regarded as a Yeovil Town legend.

Yeovil Town appointed Way as their new manager in December 2015 after a successful spell as a caretaker following former boss Paul Sturrock’s dismissal. The Glovers have recorded two 19th and a 20th place finish in Sky Bet League Two under Way’s guidance but the club have now opted for a change with the prospect of relegation looming.

First team coach Neale Marmon will take charge of Yeovil Town on an interim basis. It is not yet known whether a new boss will be appointed before the end of the season.
