     Home | Football | Ray Yeoman

Ray 'Yogi' Yeoman (born May 13, 1934 in Perth, Scotland) was manager of Darlington from 1968-1970. He had an excellent understanding and a special relationship with once fellow midfielder and then player Alan Sproates. Prior to this he was a player & player coach for Darlington. Before this he was at Middlesbrough for 5 years, holding the consecutive amount of appearances (210), until this was surpassed by Gordon Jones. A midfielder, he was tough tackling footballer and never shirked from any tackles, playing through many injuries (which many a cortisone injection solved). After being sacked by Darlington (after they just missed out on promotion), Ray went to be youth team coach at Sunderland and was present at SAFC's greatest day - the FA Cup win against Leeds United in 1973. He later went on to scout for Everon & Ipswich Town. Always remaining on Teesside, both he & his wife are now laid to rest there.
