Terry Skiverton

Assistant Manager

Terry Skiverton has been at Huish Park for almost two decades as a player, coach, assistant manager and manager.

After coming through the academy at Chelsea, the commanding central defender enjoyed spells with Wycombe Wanderers and Welling United before arriving in Somerset in 1999.

Becoming an integral part of the squad, Skiverton historically captained the side to promotion from the Football Conference in 2003 to end 108 years of non-league history after lifting the FA Trophy - the club's first major silverware - the year previous. 

An ever-present in the EFL for the Glovers the Londoner lifted the League Two title in 2005 before going on to make 382 appearances in total scoring 42 goals in all competitions making him Yeovil's tenth most-capped post-war player.

Making the transition from the pitch into the dugout, Skiverton was named player-manager in February 2009 after the departure of Russell Slade.

Relinquishing his playing duties in May 2010 the now 43-year-old managed Town for a total of 144 games in League One before stepping down in January 2012 to take on the role of assistant manager under the tenure of Gary Johnson's second spell at the club.

Three years later, Skiverton took caretaker charge after Johnson's departure prior to Paul Sturrock's appointment in April 2015.

Having reverted back to assistant manager he kept the same title in December of that year when Darren Way took the hot seat after Sturrock's dismissal. 

Now working with former team-mate Skiverton is approaching a 20th season with the club.
