1 January 2016 : Michael Bromfield : An Open Letter To John Fry
Dear John

I have read with interest your concerns about the new Supporters Trust and your comments about the annual contribution valued at £500,000 that the Directors are making to Yeovil Town Football Club (YTFC). Firstly let me stress that I have no connections to the new proposed Trust and I have not attended any of the meetings. However I welcome its formation and believe it is long overdue. Secondly you will recollect that almost ten years ago I wrote two articles that were published in the Western Gazette listing changes that I thought the Club needed to make in order to rid itself of its Non-League mindset and become an established Football League Club.

Sadly all my concerns are not only as valid today as they were 10 years ago but in many cases even more so. The Club is languishing at the foot of League 2 facing a likely return to Non League Football, you have alienated the majority of the Clubs Fan Base, the Club has lost control of its land assets by separating them into a holding company, whilst allowing its stadium to be put at risk as a mortgaged asset, the application for Retail development has been a shambolic embarrassment funded it appears by third parties and the most successful Manager the club has ever had who has overseen all our greatest achievements has wryly commented that the Directors that you regard so highly, appear to have lost their focus on football in recent years!

I have no doubts you wish well for Yeovil and have always tried to do your best for the Club but the world has moved on and your approach and attitude is outdated, inappropriate and likely to consign the club to a future similar to the likes of Salisbury and Weymouth. It is no longer appropriate to continually state you are the right man to lead Yeovil on and to talk about how many unpaid hours that you contribute if the end result of your efforts is negative for the club.

You talk about open and honest communication and you have practised neither in your communications with Yeovil Fans in regard to the ownership of the Club and Grounds. Your recent statements about the Directors Financial contributions, the proposed Yeovil Fans Trust and Trusts in general and AFC Bournemouth have been unnecessarily provocative, misleading and in some cases just untrue and bring no credit to yourself and embarrassment to the club.

They do however confirm you are no longer the correct person to be at the helm of YTFC.

All Yeovil fans will gratefully acknowledge your efforts in successfully guiding YTFC from Non League Football to the Championship although you now appear to regret and denigrate the latter achievement. Indeed your statement that to win promotion to the Championship was a negative achievement was a most inappropriate statement for a high profile Sports Administrator to make knowing it would be reported to young boys and girls who would normally be encouraged to always strive to achieve their best performances – unless it seems they are playing for a team reporting to the Yeovil Chairman!

In short and to be blunt – your reputation is now irretrievably tarnished and just like Sepp Blatter you are past your ‘sell by’ date and it is time to announce you are prepared to step down or make the club available for purchase. You will appreciate that being the Chairman and part-owner of a Football club has additional responsibilities as well as the Statutory duties that apply to all Company Directors. This is because as well as being a Company Director you are also the trustee of a Community asset that will hopefully survive way past you and myself for another 100 years.

If, as I suspect, you are not prepared to either announce that you are willing to stand down or allow the club to pass to alternative owners I believe it is not inappropriate to ask you some questions about the Club and its finances to clarify statements that you have personally made in recent weeks because I have to say at face value they appear to be both contradictory and misleading and not at all reflective of an individual capable, or I regret to say worthy, of leading Yeovil Town Football Club. I am listing these questions as a separate attachment and I believe that the fans who you ask to support the club are entitled to hear your response. As a result and because I believe my letter and questions raise valid concerns and because you always say you believe in open and honest communication I am copying this letter and attachment to various media outlets so they will have the opportunity to fully publicise your response.

Can I close by acknowledging your efforts and contribution to the success Yeovil Town FC has enjoyed in the past but nonetheless reiterate the view (which I think you will find is shared by many supporters) that it is time to step down. Otherwise like a Boxer who is the last to recognise they have long since gone past the time to quit you not only risk tarnishing what little remains of your reputation but also of becoming an embarrassment to both yourself and the club that you have so loyally served.

I sincerely believe it is time for some long overdue changes at Yeovil Town FC but nevertheless send both you and all associated with the Club my Best Wishes for 2016 and look forward to receiving your response to my letter and the questions that I have posed.

Couldn't agree more with every word and question asked, but it's water off a ducks back to JF. Sepp Blatter and JF have so much in common, both think the game cannot go on without them, and both are outdated and stubborn. I just hope that the man comes to his senses and does the right thing .

I realise I will be very much in the minority here, but who does Bromfield think he is?
The word 'shitehawk' comes to mind. In times of adversity up he springs, I vividly remember the old Ciderspace forums.
Apparently he wanted to buy the Club and would have been our saviour. As far as I am aware the terms of any such offer were never publicised so how on earth can so many be so sure it would have been such a great opportunity.
Of course there are many issues that need addressing and improvements that can be made, but is Bromfield the man to spearhead this?
As far as I can see, he revels in the stirring of excrement.
I wonder if his staff and indeed customers are so very welcome to access every aspect of his business and then dissect them in a public domain.
As before, the way the man conducts his courting of our club gives me absolutely no confidence as to his integrity.

Trust is indeed welcome and overdue, Michael. Over years the pendulum has swung: we have seen the club fuel emotion against the 'hoodies' that questioned motives and strategies, a nonsensical land-split alongside a puzzling and deeply worrying keenness to persue it, arriving at the inevitable point where it is clear to all that the ship was always floating towards the iceberg.

Despite complications from the land-split and the pathetic supermarket project - many of which I suspect may present as nasty surprises - I still have faith that the club can be revived and be made sustainable. Surely the stubbornness of the owners now - at last - will subside, and the route to change including constituted supporter involvement will happen.

I would like to shake your hand Michael Bromfield,
It's about time someone has approached JF.
we all sit here and moan about what's happening to YTFC, by the owners.
who know what they are doing to this club, do they even care all we hear is excuses about money they made over a million profit when in the championship , £500,000 man united game then with in a month all gone
And then its if we don't get planning on adjacent land that could effect the future of the club ? But sounds like that's separate from club , who's the director of the holding company
J Fry???
What's next maybe he's got a lucky dip box under his desk he picks the excuses out of .

I and maybe a lot of fans that support Yeovil town think it's time for a change
When we went to Bolton and Southampton away games we met a lot of supporters who only go to away games to follow Yeovil because they are fed up of the way the board is bringing this club down.
If we are lucky enough to stay up this season ??
We will probably still be able to follow ytfc if we don't I feel we may see the club go in to administration

Good points Simon. The tone of Mr Bromfield's letter doesn't fill me with confidence that I'd want him running our club, if indeed that is what he wants. The comparison with the corrupt (allegedly ;-)) Sepp Blatter is quite unnecessary and inappropriate.
01/01/2016 21:00:10

Dave B said ...

I don't know who Broomfield is but at the very least he is asking questions that we (nearly) all want answering.
It's all irrelevant in any case as NH and JF won't be replying any time soon. The whole World's wrong bar them.
01/01/2016 21:59:04

Badger said ...

I would strongly presume that he is referring to Sepp Blatter's determination to cling on to power against all odds, rather than any inference over anything hanging over Blatter that's currently still pending.

I don't think Bromfield is still seeking any sort of power in the club - that ship has possibly sailed - but clearly given that JF's recent interviews demanded for people with "money" to come forward, it's no surprise to find that someone who believes he did offer the club investment but was turned away, is going to challenge the board on that front.
01/01/2016 22:15:33

andrew strickland said ...

I share Mr Bromfield's very appropriate range of detailed questions, although would take a different tack myself, as the board reacts badly to that style of challenge. I really look forward with intrigue to JFs reply, based on his own assurance over openness

Camberwick green said ...

Absolutely spot on. Continuity is a good thing, too much continuity isn't. Too many people have been around for too long. Root and branch change is long overdue. Thanks JF, but it really is time to step aside. You won't be remembered for the rise up the divisions. You will only be remembered for the journey back down.

Dusty said ...

Well I really don't know what to make of all this but obviously quite a few people have strong & deep rooted feelings about JF and how the club is run. Clearly the objective of Mr Bromfield's letter is to encourage JF to step down but I don't think the letter will have the desired effect because of its tone and content. Like it or not the club has had footballing success with JF at the helm and in my experience of business and succession planning leaders/senior managers who have had their time so to speak, have to leave on a positive note if at all possible with their successor committed to building on their legacy. Although the mention of Sepp Blatter is probably a reference to him over staying his welcome I don't think comparing him with JF in any way is helpful. Surely the best incentives for JF to step down are a positive atmosphere (usually required when trying to persuade someone to do something when other methods are not available) and someone actually showing him the money! Has JF or the board knowingly presided over successive relegations or wilfully ignored footballing matters to that extent? I don't know though I know many aspects of the club and supporter experience could be better. Our best manager ever could not keep us in the Championship and dumped players like Madden and Upson in the process; TS/DW performed badly in league 1 and PS, someone with a very good record in leagues 1 & 2, didn't build a team from scratch to even compete in league 2. I see management not just board failure in all if that. We are in a desperate position at the bottom of the league with the worst record in the football league in 2015 and the board appoint DW as manager - a great player for us in his day and committed but in coaching a track record of failure. Time will tell if the appointment was a counter intuitive master stroke but to me it's an appointment based on DW's talent for self promoting spin. I wish him all the best but I think the board has made an error of judgement and shown a lack of ambition at this time. We must win today - despite what DW says this game like Barnet is a must win.

This is a great article and well presented with all the questions. No doubt that Mr Fry will this time take off his glasses so he does not have to read it like he switches off his hearing aid to avoid hearing what the fans are saying !!
02/01/2016 10:21:44

Peter said ...

Michael Bromfield is simply echoing the thoughts of the vast majority of Yeovil fans. Everything he said was things that myself and many other supporters have been saying all year.
Yeovil are dying a slow and painful death. Surely Fry and co. have to see that and have to allow and encourage new ownership. But like Sepp Blatter they refuse to accept responsibility. They may not be corrupt, but they have destroyed this club.
Personally it feels like there is no unity in the YTFC community. Yeovil Town FC seems to be existing as a club within the borders of Yeovil, but it feels like it doesn't represent the town and surrounding community anymore. The core group of Yeovil supporters are alienated from the club. Fry's comments have created a rivalry between the clubs and their own fans!!!
Today we play York, a massive game. A game we have to win. No ifs, buts or maybes. But honestly we should never be in a position where playing York City in a League 2 relegation 6 pointer.

Roger Treharne said ...

I really enjoyed Mr Bromfields comments and questions, . I`d be surprised if he got an answer, but look forward to any response.
I said to Simon Prout recently at the Stevenage game that Mr Fry and others can`t wait to get their hands on the £700K parachute payment when we return to non-league. I do think that the Football League is an over rated product, and will be no loss to YTFC.
We will be on the road to Bromley next season, but the club will still be in existence.

Spot on opinions. The selling off of the land (Or more accurately non selling off) has been an absolute shambles and an embarrasment as well as a total waste of time. If this type of operation had been run by any other business the participants would have been sacked ages ago ! Also I think the big question Mr Fry/ Hayward has to answer where has the clubs money gone. We had the money from the play off final, extra TV income from our Championship season , fees from Upson, Ayling & Madden transfers and the MUFC cup tie . I for one as a season ticket holder have not seen it put in to the team, we just pick up players released from clubs below the league we are currently in. I am also a shareholder and as far as I know there have been no AGM's for a while but I could be wrong here. Even the appointment of Way as manager is shrouded in secrecy with regards to length of contract. Fry has to go but I think he is just a mouthpiece for Hayward and he is the one that must step dow ASAP.

Whilst Michael Bromfield may not be the man to run YTFC, he has put forward to J Fry the questions that need answering.

After having a season ticket for the last 12 seasons, I for one, did not renew my season ticket this year, as many more before me had done the same.

My main reason is that, although the footballing side had been pretty good until last season, (never mind this season) the football club (although have been in the football league for 12/13 years) it is still being run as a non league club, that has to be down to one man J Fry.

It is time he moved aside to let new blood run YTFC, I doubt that he will though, and as long as he is at the helm, YTFC will drift back to non league football.

108 years to get league status 2 years from Championship football to where we are now. Bottom of league 2, I would like to think we can still be in the league next year, but it does not look good.
02/01/2016 14:36:43

Mark said ...

Those questions raised need answering,especially why the land at Huish Park no longer belongs to the club,haven't renewed my season ticket this year and very sad to say haven't been to any home games,don't trust what's going on up there at the moment ,been a season ticket holder for 34 years, wish the team all the best
02/01/2016 15:09:41

k rogers said ...

Well down Michael, all those questions are spot on, Mr Fry will not answer sadly, he will not even answer me, when i ask about recieving a copy of the accounts, and i am a minor shareholder in this present shambles. I call on the likes of Simon Prout to stop supporting Mr Fry, for the good Of YTFC, or else the only mire we will be talkibg about is the bankruptcy of YTFC!
02/01/2016 17:53:24

Carolyn Hird said ...

I totally agree, my dad George Smith was a director 14 years ago & sadly passed away, all that has happened since his passing & the loss of Goddard Watts, has been a shambles! The board & the chairmen need to go & all the hanger-ons!! & as for Darren Way!! Lol Wish I had the money to buy it & get rid of them all!
02/01/2016 18:45:40

Simon said ...

I thought the questions were derivative, not well written, somewhat repetitive and (in one case) ill judged and timed.
02/01/2016 19:59:31

andrew said ...

I have seen John Fry's open and engaging response to Mr Blomfield' letter, it is exactly the response I expected! Sound questions, but very poorly presented given such a public platform being used
