Yeovil Town manager Darren Way has been sacked following a run of 10 defeats in the team's last 12 matches.

Way took charge at Huish Park in 2015 and succeeded Paul Sturrock.

The club made the announcement on Sunday 24 March and commended Darren's "dedication, strong work ethic and potential".

However the team's current "run of form" in 2019 was described by the club as "not acceptable".

Way signed a new contract last year until 2021 but since then the Glovers have fallen to just two points above the relegation zone.

The club released a statement:

Yeovil Town Football Club can confirm that with regret Darren Way has had his employment with the club terminated and is no longer First Team Manager. Whilst Darren’s dedication, strong work ethic and potential are all clear, the Board of Directors has been compelled to act as the run of form in 2019 – including 10 losses in the last 12 games – is not acceptable. All at Yeovil Town FC wish to place on record our thanks to Darren for his long service and contribution to the club as a key player, coach and manager. We wish Darren nothing but the best for his future. Neale Marmon has taken on First Team Manager duties on a temporary basis and we ask all our fans to strongly back him and our talented squad of players in the remaining games this season. Any additional changes to the First Team coaching structure that may occur will be announced in due course.

First Team coach Neale Marmon has temporarily taken on the managerial role until a replacement is found.
