Darren Way sacked by Yeovil Town with club fighting for Football League survival

24 Mar

Darren Way has been axed by Yeovil Town.

The sacking follows a disastrous run of form from The Glovers who lie 22nd in League, following a run of 10 defeats in their last 12 games.

Darren Way had been in charge of Yeovil since December 2015

They are just two points ahead of Macclesfield, who also have a game in hand, with 39 matches played to date.

A statement from the club read: “Yeovil Town Football Club can confirm that with regret Darren Way has had his employment with the club terminated and is no longer First Team Manager.

“Whilst Darren’s dedication, strong work ethic and potential are all clear, the Board of Directors has been compelled to act as the run of form in 2019 – including 10 losses in the last 12 games – is not acceptable.

Way has been given the boot by Yeovil

“All at Yeovil Town FC wish to place on record our thanks to Darren for his long service and contribution to the club as a key player, coach and manager. We wish Darren nothing but the best for his future.

“Neale Marmon has taken on First Team Manager duties on a temporary basis and we ask all our fans to strongly back him and our talented squad of players in the remaining games this season.

“Any additional changes to the First Team coaching structure that may occur will be announced in due course.”

The former defender has been in charge of Yeovil since December 2015 and had only signed a contract extension in November.
