Full report: Yeovil Town keep Gary Johnson on for two more years

Yeovil Town have followed up their historic promotion to the Championship by tying manager, Gary Johnson, down to a new two-year contract.

It's just over two weeks since the 57-year-old helped the Glovers secure a place in English football's second tier next season following a play-off final win at Wembley.

Words from Gary Johnson at press conference

Speaking at a press conference at Huish Park earlier, Gary Johnson said:

Lots of good things have still got to happen, but I've got those assurances and it's great for me now to settle down and talk to the players because I'm now going to be the manager here for the next couple of years at least.

I want us all to stay together. It's a great team, I'm getting on well with the board of directors, and I seem to be getting on well with the media judging by the hundreds here in this room.
