Signing a two-and-a-half-year deal, Cooper arrives with a wealth of experience and promotion pedigree in management, both within the Football League and National League.

 

After a successful playing career with the likes of Birmingham City, Exeter City and Fulham, Cooper began his management career with Tamworth in 2004 whilst they competed in the National League (then Conference National).

 

His second management role was with Kettering Town, where he tasted promotion for the first time, as his side won the Conference North title by 17 points.

 

After a short spell with Peterborough United in the Championship, Cooper joined Darlington where he won the 2010/11 FA Trophy.

 

In July 2013, Cooper became Swindon Town manager. In his first season at the helm, he finished in eighth place and a year later led the Robins to the League One play-off final.

 

Most notably, Cooper spent five years at Forest Green Rovers, leading the Gloucestershire outfit to the Football League for the first time in their history and in total, he won 101 games during his stint at the New Lawn

 

After spending last season with Barrow AFC in League Two, Cooper now arrives in Somerset to take the reins at Huish Park.

 

Cooper told https://www.ytfc.net: “It’s good to be here. I already know a few of the players and staff so I’m excited and really looking forward to it.

 

“If you look historically, this can be a big club. We need to unite - the players, the supporters. Everybody needs to come together and that can play such a big part.”

 

Chairman Scott Priestnall added: “I’m delighted to welcome Mark to the club, he is a manager I have admired for a long time.

 

“Mark has the promotion credentials we are looking for, with a strong background at this level and above.

 

“I’m pleased to get the deal done swiftly so Mark can get straight to work”.
