As Darren Sarll departs Huish Park to take up the First Team Manager’s job at Woking, we’ve crunched some numbers of his time at Yeovil.
1013 – The number of days Darren Sarll took charge at Huish Park.
His appointment on June 19th 2019, just a month before the season started, ushered in a new era following relegation from the Football League
114 The number of league matches Darren Sarll oversaw during his time at Yeovil
The early ending of the 2019/20 season prevented this from being higher, obviously, and doesn’t include any FA Cup, FA Trophy, Somerset Premier Cup games or the play-off fixture against Barnet.
45 – The number of league victories, during his tenure
Including a number of memorable post match celebrations with supporters and some wonderful results along the way (Ben drifts off back to Wrexham away…)
39.47% – Darren Sarll’s win ratio in league matches.
Which is broken down into; 45 wins, 25 draws and 44 defeats. This is the highest win percentage of a league manager since Gary Johnson’s first stint in charge.
153 – Number of league goals scored since the start of the 2019/20 season
It also means that for the first time since Steve Thompson’s reign after the departure of Gary Johnson in 2005, a permanent Glovers manager has a record including a positive league goal difference (+5, 148 goals conceded)
5 – Number of wins masterminded over Woking
… just saying, like.
There are far more moments we could look at beyond the stats and maybe we will over the next few days, but purely from a statistical point of view, the numbers add up to a very good spell as Yeovil Town manager.
