Yeovil Town Football Club and Josh Staunton have reached an agreement to mutually terminate Josh’s contract.

Josh’s support of the club through good times and bad has been invaluable, and he leaves with the best wishes of everyone at the club. Josh has expressed his continued support for the club going forward and wishes them the best of luck as they pursue promotion during the 2023/24 season and beyond.

The 28-year-old made the move to Huish Park in August 2020 when he arrived from FC Halifax Town as Darren Sarll’s first addition ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Over the next few seasons, Staunton would accumulate 101 appearances as a player and even spent one game as interim manager leading the Glovers to a 1-0 win against Altrincham on the final day of the 21/22 season, becoming the youngest manager in the National League to record a win.

Following the departure of Luke Wilkinson in May 2022, Staunton took over the captaincy of the Glovers leading the line through a difficult season which saw us relegated from the National League.

With game time becoming limited for Josh this season, it has been agreed that the club and Josh Staunton mutually agreed to part ways.

We would like to thank Josh for his services and wish him all the best for the future.
