Florida businessman Tony McCarthy has come on board as joint owner of Yeovil Town WFC.
Mr McCarthy joins Adam Murry at the helm of the club.
Murry said: “I am delighted to have Tony with me. I took control of the club last year and we have made great strides in the past nine months or so.
“But we still have work to do to get YTWFC back to where it belongs and Tony’s arrival will help hugely. We are looking forward to working together.”
Mr McCarthy who runs a bottling and recycling company and other businesses, was born and brought up in Kent before moving to the US in 1984.
He also holds a USSF D license and has been coaching men’s and youth soccer since 1989.
He said: “I am very pleased indeed to be involved in a such an exciting project. I really want to play my part in helping Yeovil climb the leagues and get back to the very top. The club has enormous potential, fantastic heritage and I can’t wait to get started.”
This week Yeovil Town Women FC has also announced one of the USA’s most successful soccer coaches Denise Schilte-Brown is to be its global ambassador.
