Former Forest Green boss Mark Cooper set to take charge of Yeovil Town


Former Forest Green boss Mark Cooper is set to become the next Yeovil Town manager.

Town have sacked manager Chris Hargreaves after less than six months in charge.

Yeovil won just two National league matches under Hargreaves and were knocked out of the FA Cup by local rivals Taunton Town last week.

The Glovers are 21st in the National League and have drawn seven and lost six of their 15 league games.

Hargreaves’ assistants Chris Todd, the former Forest Green captain and Marcus Stewart have also left.

Cooper’s assistant at Forest Green, Richard Dryden is expected to link up with his former Bristol City team-mate, the pair previously worked together at Tamworth, Notts County and Barrow.

Cooper left Barrow in March – winning eight of the 37 league games he took charge for at Barrow, but he did guide the club to the FA Cup third round earlier this season after they beat Ipswich Town in a replay.

Cooper led Swindon to the League One play-off final and then had five years at Forest Green Rovers, spearheading their promotion to the Football League.
