Paul Sturrock was announced as the new manager of Yeovil Town this week, hoping to change the Glovers' fortunes as they seek survival in Sky Bet League 1.“It's appealing. It's exactly my kind of job, I'm afraid to say!” Sturrock announced during his first press conference at Huish Park.
“I've been involved with lots of teams that have been on a downward curve. Yeovil had a fantastic two years when they were in the Championship and the Play-Off Final but it's been a bit disappointing the last couple of years - it's now my job to push us in the right direction.”
Yeovil are bottom of League 1, 13 points from safety with five games to go, and Sturrock has been appointed with acting manager Terry Skiverton reverting back to assistant manager, with Darren Way as first-team coach.
Sturrock's last full-time job in management came at Southend United, where he stayed for three years, after previously holding positions at Plymouth Argyle (twice), Swindon Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Southampton, as well as north of the border with Dundee United and St. Johnstone.
