Yeovil Town club captain, Josh Staunton has left the club.

The defender/midfielder/one time caretaker Manager departs the club having found game time hard to come by.

Staunton, who has more than 100 appearances to his name, leaves his contract early following rumours surrounding his future over the past week or two.

In a statement posted on his X (formerly Twitter) account, Josh said: “I owe a massive thank you to the people of Yeovil, for making me feel so at home at your club.

It has been an honour to wear the green & white and be your captain. We got through the hard times together and I wish the club and players all the best in promotion and beyond ?”

Josh Staunton joined Yeovil from Halifax and told the Gloverscast in an exclusive chat that Huish Park was the ‘only other team he’d join’ if his future lay away from the Shay stadium.

He captained the side for the last couple of seasons and, alongside Mark Cooper, showed real leadership in times of uncertainty and hardship as the club dropped out of the National League.

He also leaves the club as the Glovers’ most successful manager in terms of win ratio, with a sole victory from the final game at Altrincham at the end of the 2021/22 season.

On behalf of us all at the Gloverscast, we’d like to say Thank You to Josh for his captaincy during his time at Huish Park.

Good luck to him. Such a good lad, thought he would become another Skivo, without the drink.
