Biography: Brian spent almost his entire career playing for Gillingham, for whom he holds the all-time record for the most goals scored in the Football League. He had graduated through the junior ranks at Portsmouth but never made a first-team appearance before Freddie Cox signed him for the Gills in 1963. In 1975 Yeo retired from professional football to concentrate on running a newsagent's in the town, but also had spells managing Folkestone and Canterbury City. In 2004, after ten years as a driver for the local paper, Brian retired to spend more time on the golf course.
