Marcus Stewart has rejoined Yeovil Town as the Head of Player Development, adding a second new member of staff to Chris Hargreaves’ coaching team.

You might remember Marcus from a famous night in Nottingham that we enjoy reminiscing about now and again.

Speaking to YTFC.net on his appointment, Stewart said: “When Chris called me, this just felt like the right thing to do, I’ve been here before and I feel like I can help him.

“I’m here to do my best, like I did before. This is a club I’m fond of, it’s a club that’s local to me and where I have had a good relationship with the fans.”

Since retiring from playing in 2011, Stewart has coached at Exeter and assisted Darrell Clarke at Bristol Rovers and Walsall.

Marcus joined Yeovil on loan from Gary Johnson’s Bristol City in 2006 before making the move permanent.

Scoring 12 times in 67 league appearances for the Glovers.

His playing career spanned Huddersfield, Ipswich and Bristol Rovers with career transfer fees totalling well in excess of £5million.

During the 2000/01 season he was the Premier League’s highest scoring Englishman with 21 goals, just three behind Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in the race for the golden Boot.

Welcome back Marcus, we’re sure you can still stick in the net if needed?
