Terry Skiverton

Terry Skiverton has been with the Glovers since 1999.

He first joined Yeovil Town as a player from Welling United, having started his career at Premier League outfit Chelsea.

The central defender became a club legend over an 11-year playing career at Huish Park, captaining the side to one cup success and two promotions. 

Making over 300 appearances in total, Skivo lifted the 2002 FA Trophy at Villa Park before winning the Conference title a year later - ending the club's 108-year stay in non-league football.

Further success followed for Skiverton as he helped the Green and Whites claimed the League Two title in 2005 and was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the 2006/07.

Having started to move into coaching with the club's Academy, Skiverton was named manager of the first team in 2009 after the departure of Russell Slade.

Subsequently, the former defender went on to manage over 100 games maintaining Yeovil's League One status, until January 2012 when he reverted to assistant manager with Gary Johnson returning for a second spell in Somerset. 

As well as Johnson, Skivo worked alongside then first team coach Darren Way to mastermind promotion to the Championship - the highest level the club has ever competed at. 

Skiverton took caretaker charge following Johnson's exit before Paul Sturrock was appointed. He once again reverted to the role of assistant manager, a position he currently holds under current manager and former team-mate Way.
