Yeovil Town manager Darren Way has signed a new three year contract.

The 36-year-old initially took charge on an interim basis after the sacking of Paul Sturrock.

He has been rewarded after taking his side from bottom of the table to 19th - 14 points clear of the relegation zone with six games left to play.

I feel very proud and honoured to have signed a new contract to be manager of Yeovil Town.

Since I was a young lad it has always been my dream to become a professional footballer and follow that up by becoming a football manager.

It was a massive honour for me to lead this great football club out as captain when we played our first game in the Football League against Rochdale after 108 years in non-league football and now I am leading the club as manager.

The history this fantastic club has is remarkable and it has been my biggest job not to be scared and keep this club alive.

– Darren Way, Yeovil Town manager, speaking to ytfc.net

I have worked with Darren as a player and coach for 15 years. He has already committed to being a big part of the Glovers future plans.

We have found an extraordinary leader and manager in Darren, who has the full backing of everyone at Huish Park, not only to build a squad, but a Club, that will achieve and sustain League One status within the next five seasons.

He will not let our supporters down.

– John Fry, Yeovil Town chairman, speaking to ytfc.net

Way is a former Glovers midfielder with over 200 appearances for the club. His playing career ended prematurely after being injured in a car crash in 2008.

Financially stricken rugby club Plymouth Albion say they're moving steadily towards completing the latest takeover at Brickfields.

Albion went into administration at the end of last month, for the second time in a year.

The proposed sale at Plymouth Albion is still progressing.

We have covered most of the requirements and hope to make an announcement before Saturday’s home match with Wharfedale.

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month award for March.

City remained unbeaten throughout the month, and a haul of twelve points from six games was made even more special by a 100% record on the road, with wins at Cambridge United, Notts County and Crawley Town.

This is the second time that Tisdale has been nominated for Manager of the Month this season, and coincides with an unbeaten run stretching back to the victory over Stevenage on February 27th.

Bristol Rovers’ Darrell Clarke, Hartlepool United’s Craig Hignett and Yeovil Town’s Darren Way are the other managers in contention.

The winners will be announced on Friday 8th April.
