Terry Skiverton was appointed Yeovil's player-manager in February 2009 when he succeeded previous manager Russell Slade.The popular centre-half, central to so much of the club's success, has been at Huish Park since the summer of 1999 after joining from Welling United.
Terry's early career was spent in London where he was a trainee at Chelsea. He didn't make the first team there and spent a period on loan at Wycombe Wanderers before making the move permanent the following season.
After two seasons at Adams Park, he dropped out of league football and joined Welling United, enjoying a spell in the limelight as a cast member on Sky One's "Dream Team", the story of a fictional football side called Harchester United.
Yeovil manager Colin Lippiatt signed Terry for Yeovil and his debut was in an inauspicious 5-0 defeat at Scarborough. He was made captain and led the Glovers right the way through the recent successful seasons.
The FA Trophy run of 2002 was a prime example of his leadership. Terry's last minute winner in the stunning 5-4 victory at Doncaster in the fourth round proved a shot in the arm and the Glovers went on to lift the Trophy that season.
The following season saw Terry lead Yeovil into the Football League for the first time scoring six times along the way as the Glovers romped away with the Conference title. He almost captained the side to two consecutive promotions as the first League season ended with the team missing out on the playoffs by goal difference.
Promotion was achieved the following season though by winning League Two and Terry had his third winners' medal in just four seasons, reward indeed for his loyalty.
The disappointment of the 2007 playoff final was only slightly softened by his selection in the PFA League One Team of the Year, proof if it were needed of his talent and commitment.
Terry became manager in February 2009 and with a good run towards the end of the season, kept Yeovil up in seventeenth place on 51 points.
His first full season as manager saw the Glovers end up in fifteenth place on 53 points while the most recent campaign saw Yeovil Town reach their second highest position ever, fourteenth, on a total of 59 points.
In January 2012 the directors decided to bring back Gary Johnson as manager with the club in a dangerously low position in the league and Terry stepped back to become Assistant to Gary Johnson and the pair succeeded in maintaining Yeovil Town's status in N Power League one for a tenth successive year.
Darren joined Yeovil in the summer of 2000 after having been signed by manager David Webb. He had previously spent two years at Norwich City where he captained the reserve side and was also selected to play for the England under-16 side with Michael Owen.
His compettitve debut came at Huish Park on August 19th, 2000 when he came on as a substitute in the 2-0 win over Kettering. It was the start of a successful season for the midfield dynamo who clocked up more than fifty games in all competitions scoring twelve goals.
The second season ended with the FA Trophy nestling in the Huish Park trophy cabinet after they overcame Stevenage Borough 2-0 in the final. Darren added a further 34 games to his tally including the showpiece game at Villa Park.
Season three was to be his last in non-league football as the Glovers romped to the Conference title with a record breaking points tally of 101. The little maestro played forty-eight times that season and scored one goal, a goal that no-one would forget. His tumbling, stumbling effort at Belle Vue, Doncaster was the catalyst for a stunning post-celebration display by Gary Johnson's men who, by virtue of other results, had already clinched the title.
The step up into the Football League held no fears for Darren and cemented his partnership with Lee Johnson. The pair were arguably the best midfield pairing in the division and in a season that saw the Glovers miss out on the play-offs only on goal difference, his five goals in 44 appearances were an integral part of the team's success.
The fifth season that Darren enjoyed with Yeovil saw another medal for his collection when he helped lead the team to the League two title. His most prolific in terms of appearances (52), he also chipped in with nine goals including a brace against Mansfield late on in the season.
Season 2005/06 was to prove his last in his first spell at Huish Park. He scored three times in eighteen appearances before being transferred to Swansea City for £150,000.
His time in South Wales was to prove a frustrating and painful one. A shin injury, diagnosed after he played his last match for Yeovil, kept recurring and in thirty months at the Liberty Stadium, he made only 21 appearances.
There were several familiar faces with him though, notably the likes of Rory Fallon, Owain Tudur Jones, Kevin Amankwaah and Shaun MacDonald who all played alongside Darren.
During his time away, former manager Russell Slade brought him "home" for a loan spell; a six week loan period beginning in November 2007 when his arrival sparked an upturn in fortunes for the Glovers before returning to Swansea.
The permanent return was sealed in July 2008 when he signed for a third spell and played another nineteen times scoring twice more. His last match for Yeovil was the 0-1 defeat to Peterborough United in November 2008.
In December 2008, Darren suffered serious injuries in a car accident close to Yeovil and he needed many operations during his recovery. However the injuries proved too serious and he announced his retirement from the playing side before taking on a new role as a technical coach.
He was granted a testimonial in July 2010 against Manchester United where a crowd of more than 6,000 watched the Glovers take on the Red Devils at Huish Park.
