GARY Johnson has been sacked as manager of Yeovil Town with the Glovers currently bottom of League One. 

The club made the announcement this afternoon, with chairman John Fry describing the decision to relieve Johnson of his duties as 'the hardest he has been involved in.' 

A statement from Yeovil Town said: "Yeovil Town today announced that Gary Johnson is no longer in charge of football at the League One club’s Huish Park stadium." 

Chairman, John Fry, said: “The decision to relieve Gary of his management duties is the hardest I have been involved in during my 23 years at Huish Park. 

“I cannot speak too highly of the man who in the past brought so much success to our club. We part company on good terms and I would like personally to wish him well for the future.”

“Gary took the Glovers from the Conference to the Championship and is regarded as one of the best managers in the Football League.
