Darren Way has been appointed the permanent manager at Yeovil Town after a caretaker spell in charge.
Put in temporary charge following the dismissal of Paul Sturrock, struggling Yeovil won points against promotion-chasing sides Leyton Orient and Oxford United.
Yeovil have not disclosed the length of Way’s contract, but the deal continues a long-standing link between club and coach with Day joining the Glovers as a player in 2000 where he would make 220 appearances in separate spells.
Serious injuries sustained in 2008 in a car accident near Huish Park cut short midfielder’s career after two years of rehabilitation. Way, 36, has since rallied through his coaching badges, gaining the UEFA ‘A’ Licence and is currently undertaking the ‘Pro Licence’ course.
Way said: “I am very, very honoured and privileged to become the manager of Yeovil Town.
“I am ready to take this club into battle and secure our Football League status. I feel the players have given everything for me since I have taken charge and the supporters have shown a lot of love and respect towards the players and the football club.
“As it stands right now, the club needs passion and commitment and I am sure there is enough around the town and community with everyone pulling in the same direction to maintain our league status.
“I fully respect the fans who have turned up week in week out to show their support and I think they can see the change since I took over. Keep positive and let’s keep marching on.”
