Darren Sarll

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.
