To try and put into words the impact Terry Skiverton had on Yeovil Town Football Club is really quite a challenge.

For 23 years, London born Terence John Skiverton was a part of the furniture at Huish Park – in fact, he was so much more.

He signed for the Glovers from Welling United back in the Summer of 1999 and departed this past week.

We’ve seen tributes pour in from players and fans and quite frankly we’re not sure just how much more we can add.

But, what we can do is try and reignite some memories.

Skivo, played 383 competitive games for the Glovers, scored 44 goals and would go on to manage 157 more, overseeing two spells in the managerial hot seat.

He was an assistant to Gary Johnson and to Darren Way, lead the Glovers’ academy for a time and did just about every job going at one time or another at Huish Park.

From the bottom of all our hearts, thank you Skivo.

Words might not do your time in Somerset justice, but maybe pictures will.

We are proud to be working hard to save whatever we can from the now defunct Ciderspace archives and are delighted to be able to share these pictures spanning just about every one of the 23-years that Terry Skiverton was part of Yeovil Town Football Club.
