Yetton eyes job as future Terras’ boss… but only when his playing career ends

STEWART Yetton admitted he would like to move into football management once his playing career is over and claimed “you’d have to be silly to not want to manage a club like Weymouth”.

The former club skipper, who departed the Bob Lucas Stadium in a shock loan move back to Truro City last week, also admitted he would only consider going into management once his playing days were over.

Asked whether taking on a job like Weymouth attracts him in the future when speaking about his Terras’ exit, Yetton replied: “In the future when I have stopped playing, absolutely.

“You’d have to be silly to not want to manage a club like Weymouth, it’s a fantastic club.

“I would like to think at some point in my career I will be a manager. It’s definitely something I see in the future at some point.”

He added: “I definitely want to go into management one day and, if you are going to manage in non-League, having an aspiration to manage a club like Weymouth is absolutely one you should have because it’s a fantastic football club.

“It’s not any time soon and I think I have a good few years playing yet.

“One of the greatest things I have learnt in the last couple of years, and maybe Jase (Matthews) has as well, is that being a player-manager is very difficult. I wouldn’t want to be a manager while I am still playing.”

And on the subject of Weymouth manager Matthews, Yetton was full of praise for the Terras’ chief.

“I have a lot of respect for Jason. He is a great friend and he is a fantastic guy,” he added.

“One of the nicest men I have ever met in football, if not the nicest man I have ever met.

“He’s a top class guy and I have even tried to tell him at times he needs to be more ruthless. I have not got a bad word to say about Jason, we leave on good terms and I regard Jason as a friend.

“He knows I will always be available to talk to him. Hopefully our paths will cross again someday.”
