Establishing a new set of Southampton directors is Katharina Liebherr's top priority, the Saints owner confirmed in a statement.
Nigel Adkins' new side Reading FC played host to his former team Southampton FC at the Madejski Stadium. The Saints beat the Royals 2 - 0.
Alex Ferguson has heaped praise on Southampton after their defeat to Manchester United last night.
Canadian Ralph Krueger has been named as the new Southampton chairman. The 54-year-old was a consultant to Canada's successful ice hockey team at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Southampton Football Club has announced that Ralph Krueger has been appointed as its new Chairman. The Canadian has just returned from participating in his fourth Winter Olympics, where he helped to lead 'Team Canada' to the gold medal in ice hockey.
Krueger replaces Nicola Cortese who left Saints earlier this year.
There was a certain air of relief when Guly do Prado, who spoke in the programme of his desire to win around Saints fans, slotted home a penalty midway through the first half - the Brazilian's first goal in two years and 11 days.
Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana saw efforts hit the woodwork either side of the spot-kick, but Yeovil were proving a handful it took for 18-year-old Sam Gallagher to open his senior account with a fine solo effort to put the game to bed and a smile back on Southampton fans' faces.

Doubts are now surrounding whether Mauricio Pochettino, Southampton's football manager, will remain at the club.
It's after Nicola Cortese resigned from his post as Chief Executive yesterday.
Katharina Liebherr has now taken on the role of non-executive chairman, with the search having begun for a new chief executive.
There are speculations that Cortese actually tendered his resignation in the autumn, with talks about the 45-year-old Italian considering his position back in May.
At that time, Pochettino warned he would leave Southampton if Cortese chose to do so.
In May, he said, "I would not understand staying in this role if Nicola was not here."
