David Webb took over as manager in March 2000 and played a huge part in the success that was to come our way. He instigated full time football at Yeovil, something the board had long considered their target, but finances proved a problem. He also introduced more professional ways of operating a football club and laid sound foundations for the future.

Born in Stratford, East London in 1946, Webb played 555 Football League matches for 8 different clubs, but it was Chelsea where he will be best remembered where he scored the winner in the replay of the 1970 FA Cup final. He was also involved the following season when Chelsea won the European Cup Winners Cup beating Real Madrid after a replay

He left Yeovil as manager in September 2000 to take over at Southend United for a third spell, but returned to Yeovil in December 2005, when he bought the club from John Goddard-Watts, and became Chief Executive. He only stayed until February 2006 when he resigned his position, and subsequently sold his shares to chairman John Fry.

He returned again to Southend United as assistant manager in 2010, and his son Danny played for Yeovil in 2006 playing 10 matches.
