If they were an artist they would be... R Kelly. On May 19, 2013, Yeovil reached the second-tier of English football for the first time in their history after beating Brentford at Wembley with Gary Johnson somewhat instilling the belief that they could fly into unseen territory. The Championship was a step too far for the Glovers, who have spent the last two seasons bumping and grinding to back to back relegations, coming 24th once again last term. Unfortunately, it seems Yeovil's success was also their un-doing. Paul Sturrock is an experienced manager though, and will search for the ignition to restart Yeovil's engine, with a long list of new signings.
