The first Welshman to manage Yeovil Town, Glyn Davies took over in February 1964 and inherited a squad well on course to win the Southern League in 1963/64 season, which they managed to do. Born in Swansea in May 1932, the defender played 200 Football League games for Derby County before joining his hometown club then called Swansea Town. He only made 17 appearances in 2 years before coming to Yeovil as player-manager aged 31 for just under a season and a half. After leading the team to the Southern League title, he landed the Somerset Professional Cup the following year.

He returned to South Wales for the start of the 1965/66 season as manager of Swansea Town, Yeovil receiving a compensation payment of £1250. He died in February 2013 in Swansea.
