Terry Skiverton is Jacko’s new assistant
Long time Yeovil Town player, captain, manager and assistant manager Terry Skiverton is set to be announced as Johnnie Jackson’s assistant this week.
An East End boy, he did spend two years at Welling United in the 90’s but there is where any connection ends.
I’d imagine Johnnie has had plenty to say in the appointment, and I like that Skiverton brings lot of grass roots experience plus a myriad of coaching badges leading up his UEFA Pro License Level 5 last summer. I suspect he may be one of the coaches that Jacko had met doing the courses.
I like that Skiverton is outside of the Charlton bubble and doing a little reading online when playing he was a tough ball-winning midfielder. He is well respected in football circles and is no easy touch. A bit of tough love maybe what is required.
