Yeovil Town have confirmed that former Eastleigh and Torquay Under 18s manager Chris Todd is the club’s new assistant manager.

Chris Hargreaves confirmed he would be adding to his coaching staff and this represents his first appointment.

Speaking to YTFC.net he said; “I’m very excited. It’s a new challenge and when I spoke to Chris, we had a good conversation. We discussed the future of the football club and I wanted to be a part of that. 

“I hope the fans are excited about the new journey that we’re on together. I will give 110% daily, as I know Chris will and the rest of the background staff.

“This is a good group and we’re trying to make them successful, if they’re successful the Club is successful and it’s a good moment for everyone.”

Todd was part of the England Colleges coaching system this season so has recently worked with the Glovers’ Ollie Haste already.

He represented Exeter, Torquay, Hereford and Forest Green Rovers as player with coaching and management roles at Gloucester and Eastleigh since.

He was also diagnosed with a form of blood cancer in 2008, thankfully he recovered, he’s an author and an actor with a credit in a World War Two film and he’s performed in a national choir, is there anything this man can’t do!?

A quick look through the history books and I can only find one Chris Todd appearance against Yeovil as a player…

Torquay United’s 4-1 FA Cup win in 2008 which was shown live on the BBC, he scored the equaliser for the Gulls, cheers for that Chris.
