List of Yeovil Town F.C. managers
This chronological list of managers of Yeovil Town Football Club comprises all those who have held the position of manager of the first team of Yeovil Town since the club was first admitted to the Southern League in 1923 and subsequently turned professional. Each manager's entry includes his dates of tenure and the club's overall competitive record (in terms of matches won, drawn and lost), honours won and significant achievements while under his care. Caretaker managers are included, where known, as well as those who have been in permanent charge.
All first-team matches in national competitions are counted. Manager dates and statistics are sourced from Miller, Kerry (2005) for pre-Second World War managers, and then Ciderspace up until promotion to the Football League in 2003 and Soccerbase thereafter. Statistics are complete up to and including 4 December 2016. Names of caretaker managers are supplied where known, and periods of caretaker-management are highlighted in italics. Wins, losses and draws are results at the final whistle; the results of penalty shoot-outs are not counted.
