Darren Way: Keeping Yeovil Town in League Two would be 'proudest achievement'

'Car crash taught me a lot' - Way

Yeovil manager Darren Way says he wants to repay the club's fans for their support after a career-ending car crash by avoiding relegation from League Two.

Way, who played 273 games for the Glovers, retired in February 2010, 13 months after the accident.

The 36-year-old has lifted the club out of the bottom two since being appointed as manager in December.

"The fans supported me as a player, they supported me certainly through my car accident, massive," he said.

"Now they're supporting me as a manager, so I wouldn't have no prouder achievement than making sure I do it for them."

Way, who had 13 operations after the van he was a passenger in overturned in December 2008, also said his accident helped him prepare for the demands of being a manager.

"I've had to deal with adversity throughout my whole career, I've never had it just given to me," he continued.

"I wouldn't change my life for any other way. The car crash taught me a lot.

"The legal aspect of it was an absolute minefield, but I can tell you now this job behind the scenes can be a minefield."
