League Two: Yeovil Town part company with manager Paul Sturrock


League Two side Yeovil Town have sacked manager Paul Sturrock with the club bottom of the Football League.

Sturrock, 59, took charge in April but couldn't stop the club from being relegated to League Two. The club's struggles on the pitch have continued this season however, and with only two wins all season, and none in their last twelve games, the club has made the change.

It was less than three years ago that the club celebrated promotion to the Championship under Gary Johnson, but they are now facing the prospect of a third relegation in as many seasons, and one which will see them fall out of the Football League.

Darren Way has been installed as interim manager at Huish Park.

"We are very sad that the board had to reach this decision today and we thank Paul for his hard work during his time at Huish Park," said chairman John Fry, in an official statement from the club.

"We wish him well for the future, however we all felt that in the light of recent results we had no alternative," added Fry. "We will now begin our search for a new manager."
