Former Sheffield Wednesday and Southend United manager Paul Sturrock is in line to take the Yeovil Town manager’s job, according to FLW sources.
Following the sacking of Gary Johnson earlier this year, Yeovil appointed fans’ favourite and then assistant manager Terry Skiverton to take the top job under a role of ‘Acting Manager’.
However, FLW understands that Yeovil Town have identified Paul Sturrock as the man to aid a late push for safety.
The Glovers are 13 points adrift of safety at the bottom of Sky Bet League One and could be relegated on Saturday when they are set to host Notts County.
Sturrock had joined Conference Premier side Torquay United in an advisory role but, despite only signing for the Gulls over the weekend, he today left the Cornwall club after just four days in situ.
On Torquay’s official Twitter feed, they stated “Paul Sturrock has left TUFC after accepting a permanent contract at a different club.”
Furthermore, the 58-year-old has failed to squash rumours that he is going to join the Glovers after declining to comment on the matter.
Any developments on this story will be reported by Football League World as soon as we have it.
