7 October 2017 : Darren Way Believes Newport Bullied His Side From Start To Finish
Yeovil Town manager Darren Way felt that his side were bullied into submission at Rodney Parade this afternoon, as they lost 2-0 against Newport County. Conceding two goals from set pieces, the Glovers struggled to show any level of authority over the 90 minutes, and were well beaten in terms of the overall pattern of play outside those two goals.

Way felt his side didn't stand up to Newport's level of physicality, with the likes of former Glovers midfielder Ben Tozer standing at 6'2" in the centre of the park. He felt that the Exiles had imposed their game on Yeovil, more than his own side had managed to do on their hosts, and told BBC Somerset that he wasn't happy with the way his side had allowed that level of bullying to happen:

"I have got to be honest, we're a team that I wouldn't say are naturally built like Newport. I think Newport are built for that game. They have recruited for that strength, like Ben Tozer. But we have to make sure that we understand League Two football. I keep saying it every week that one or two of the younger players have got to live up to that. I just felt at times they bullied us. I don't like that - not to be bullied. That's one thing that should never happen in football. I accept missed tackles and arriving late, but I thought they bullied us from start to finish."

In his pre-match interview, Way had highlighted the number of goals that Newport had scored from set pieces, explaining that they had been preparing for that on the training ground. They will have also known the strengths that former midfielder Matt Dolan had in his delivery from corners and free kicks. Despite that, it was the former Middlesbrough player, who only joined Newport from Yeovil over the summer, who produced the two corners that resulted in Padraig Amond and Joss Labadie heading home. Way admitted that his side had failed to deal with that aspect of the game, although cited the first Amond goal as crucial for shaping the game:

"We knew about it, and we'd worked on it all week. I think that 57 percent of their goals were scored from set plays. Obviously they've got the threat of Ben Tozer. So to concede, in the 45th minute, it was very very disappointing. The half time team talk had to change. It changes the whole dynamic of the game. It changes your half time team talk and it changes the players' mindset. But we knew that threat, and I understand the supporters' frustration. I know as far as our preparation is concerned that we did everything that we could to combat that, and as always I accept responsibility."

7 October 2017 : Newport 2 Yeovil 0 : Set Pieces Cost Glovers Once Again
Yeovil Town went down to their fifth away defeat in six league games this afternoon, as Newport County picked up a comfortable 2-0 win at Rodney Parade. The Glovers were never really in the game, and lost the points due to two corner kicks from former midfielder Matt Dolan. his delivery into the box allowed Padraig Amond to score just before the break, and ten minutes into the second half Joss Labadie got on the end of a corner from the same player as the Welsh side dominated. The best chance for the Glovers came in second half injury time when Olufela Olomola hit the crossbar but by then they were well beaten.

The Glovers went into the match making two changes to their starting line-up with Nathan Smith coming in for Omar Sowunmi, who surprisingly dropped entirely out of the first team squad, one game after he'd been recalled directly into the first eleven. The other replacement was Connor Smith, who came in for Jake Gray, with Smith having missed playing time recently through illness. In the opposition line-up, Ben Tozer and Matt Dolan both started, meaning that this was a game of old boys versus new boys in the centre.

Newport lined up in a 3-5-2 formation, and it was their wing-backs and others moving into wide positions that dominated the game against Yeovil's more narrow 4-3-3 formation. Early on, Ben White put over the crossbar. That was followed up by Matt Dolan dispossessing Matt Worthington, which saw him cross into the box, but Padraig Amond's header went over the bar as well. The Exiles then went close as Joss Labadie spurned an effort six yards out as he too put over the crossbar when he really should have buried it.

Yeovil's chances were few and far between, but Francois Zoko produced an effort out of nothing as he cleverly turned his man and saw his shot deflected off a defender's boot, with Joe Day doing brilliantly to deal with the ball as it span in the opposite direction. But in the main it was the home side that had the greater intent.

That said, it did look as though the Glovers had weathered the storm right up until the point that the board went up for three minutes of added time before the break. Matt Dolan's free kick caused problems in the box and was deflected out for a corner. With the pressure now back on the Glovers defence, Dolan's corner kick was spot on, and allowed Padraig Amond the chance to head home for a goal that the home side deserved, and one that had come at a crucial point in the game.

Instead of Yeovil coming out after the break fired up, it was more of a case of Newport upping the gears as Joss Labadie's header from a Dolan free kick was saved by Artur Krysiak, with Frank Nouble thankfully firing the loose ball wide of the posts. Then Labadie shot over the bar from Nouble's cross. As such it wasn't much of a surprise when Newport doubled their lead. Once again Dolan was the instigator, once again it was a corner, and once again it was a well planted header. Labadie, who could have had a hat-trick before that moment finally got on the scoresheet for a 2-0 advantage.

Newport could have sat back and enjoyed their lead, but instead they showed great intent to try to get their third. Yeovil's opportunities were few and far inbetween with only a long range Tom James free kick that sailed high and wide and another set piece that peacefully floated into the keeper's arms getting near their box. It was nearly three when a long range Joe Day goal kick saw Padraig Amond latch onto the ball, with the Yeovil defence sleeping. Amond's shot was well saved by Artur Krysiak who was the one player who stayed alert.

A Mickey Demetriou free kick whistled narrowly wide of the post, just after Dolan had been withdrawn to a standing ovation. That was the theme of the closing stages, with Newport having the luxury of withdrawing both goalscorers as Padraig Amond and Joss Labadie also left to big applause. Yeovil tried to introduce their own substitutes with Rhys Browne, Sam Surridge and Alefe Santos all coming on, but without any real coherence as to how they would change the game. In the end Yeovil's best chance came during second half injury time when Francois Zoko set up Olufela Olomola but the Southampton loanee's shot came back off the crossbar. Yeovil came out with nothing, and nothing was what they deserved.

7 October 2017 : Ton Up For Darren Way
This afternoon sees Yeovil Town manager Darren Way reach a personal milestone in his management of the club. The 37 year old takes charge of his 100th game as part of the League Two fixture at Newport County's Rodney Parade ground, having been in charge of the Glovers since December 2015. He was the replacement for Paul Sturrock, initially acting as an interim manager until the club gave him the job on a permanent basis on New Year's Eve.

Darren had been operating under the title of Technical Coach since February 2010 - an appointment that coincided with his decision to retire from the game, following his December 2008 road traffic accident that had effectively ended his playing career. He served as a coach under Terry Skiverton, Gary Johnson and Paul Sturrock, always acting as the third in line, meaning that his leapfrogging of Skiverton in December 2015 came as a surprise.

His immediate impact on the club's form was strong, helping the Glovers escape relegation during the second half of the 2015-16 season, whilst the first half of the 2016-17 season pointed to more of the same, with the club occupying a solid upper mid-table position, and even briefly nudging into the play-off spots for one single game in December 2016, after the 5-0 victory over Crawley Town.

Unfortunately, the year 2017 has been rather more bleak for results, with Way's side struggling for wins, with a slide down the table seeing them finish in 20th place at the end of the 2016-17 season. This season has seen a similar start, although thankfully with enough points to keep their head above water, going into this afternoon's game in 17th place in the League Two table.

Darren Way's managerial career statistics for Yeovil Town break down as follows:

Overall Record:
Games 99 Wins 30 Draws 35 Losses 34 Win Ratio 30.3%

When this is broken into both Seasonal and Calendar year segments, this gives the following for League games only:

Seasonal Records: (League Games Only)
2015-16 : Games 26 W9 D10 L7 F24 A25 Pts37. Win Ratio 34.6%

7 October 2017 : Ton Up For Ryan Dickson
Yeovil Town left-back Ryan Dickson celebrates a personal milestone this afternoon. The 30 year old has been selected in the starting line-up for the League Two match against Newport County at Rodney Parade, meaning that he will play in his 100th match for the Glovers. Pitched across two spells, the former Southampton and Brentford player as remained a regular in the side when fit and available for selection.

Ryan's milestone has been a bit of a slow burner, and dates all the way back to the 2007-08 season when he played for Yeovil Town Reserves as a trialist, whilst on the books of Plymouth Argyle. However, Brentford moved in for him, with a loan offer that turned into a permanent deal, meaning the Glovers never fielded him as a first team player at that time.

He finally pulled a first team shirt on for the club in January 2012. He was actually brought into the club by Terry Skiverton, as a Southampton loanee, but with Gary Johnson taking over the management position two days later, his 2011-12 season loan spell saw him exclusively play under the latter manager. His stay only lasted five matches though, with Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade taking him from under his former club's noses, with the decision being made due to Orient's ability to commit to the loaner term loan deal.

He came back as a trialist during the summer of 2013, but a lack of match fitness prevented the club from making another move for him. Instead he ended up at Colchester United in the division below. A year later, he moved on to Crawley Town where he was their 2014-15 Player of the Season. However, with a young family, Ryan wanted to move closer to home, and that allowed Paul Sturrock to sign him in the summer of 2015.

Since then, he's been a regular starter for the club, making 94 appearances across just over two seasons, meaning that today is his 100th appearance for the club, with the vast majority of those games played in his usual left-back position.

7 October 2017 : Ladies Boss Wants To Keep The FAWSL1 Dream As A Reality
Yeovil Town Ladies manager Jamie Sherwood has said that he wants the dream of FAWSL1 football to stay as a reality, as his side battles both on and off the field to preserve that status. The club have just started their first full season at that level, and host Sunderland Ladies at Huish Park tomorrow (kick-off 2.00p.m.) with a Ladies fans and media forum being held immediately after the game.

The Ladies plan to discuss the Football Association plans to restructure the women's side of the game, including the incorporation of full time football in the top flight, and the need for every club to set up an Academy if they want to play at FAWSL1 level next season. Sherwood says he understands why the FA are making such a change, but adds that will have an effect on the aspirations of any club that sits in the divisions below that, with the danger of a closed shop developing. He says he's tried to see both sides:

"There's two ways of looking at it. You have to take the emotion out of it from a Yeovil perspective. For the Women's game and England and for England to be the best team that they can be, then it makes sense. But when you put the emotion into it and you think of teams like Yeovil, Bristol and other teams that are in the WSL then there's a little bit more of a different feeling about it. For us as a club, we know what we set out on this road to do, and that's to establish ourselves as a WSL1 club. Football is about aspirations and ambitions and winning your way through. You want to win promotion and be in the highest league possible. So it doesn't matter if you're in the Conference, you have that dream to go through into the Premier League. We were in WSL2 and we had that dream to be in WSL1. We worked hard to achieve it, and we'll work even harder to make sure that stays a reality for ourselves."

After the Sunderland game, the Ladies plan to hold their Fans and Media Forum at around 4.00p.m. in the Alec Stock Lounge, with all those who hold a matchday ticket invited to attend. Sherwood said that the club's overall ambition was still to play at the top level, and explained how things would unfold after the game:

"We'll get everyone into the ground, and speak to them and make sure that everyone sees the plans for Yeovil Town Ladies Football Club, both in the short term and in the long term. I think that the timescales that the FA have set is maybe the bigger problem. But I think the reality for every club like Yeovil, since the day I walked into the club, was to achieve promotion and get ourselves into WSL1. Now we're here we want to establish ourselves. The aspiration has always been for us to be a full time club. We've taken great steps this season to be in an even closer position. So hopefully throughout the coming weeks and coming months, we can make sure that does become our reality, and that we are a WSL1 club come 2018-19."

Advance tickets for the match against Sunderland can be purchased here. The Ladies are asking for a 'pack the park' mentality for tomorrow's fixture - one of the FAWSL1 licence clauses for next season is for clubs to have firm targets for attendances at their games, to ensure that they can be as self-sufficient as possible, and with the female Glovers having been one of the best attended clubs in the country, this is likely to be one of their strengths. Turnstiles will be open from 12.30p.m. for the 2.00p.m. kick-off. The after match event is to begin from 4.00p.m. after the full-time whistle.

6 October 2017 : Lawrence And Hedges Gain Career Firsts In Welsh Victory
Two former Yeovil Town loanees had an evening to remember, as Wales gained a 1-0 victory over Georgia in Tbilisi. The match was won by Tom Lawrence, whose 49th minute goal saw him beat Georgia keeper Giorgi Loria from 20 yards with a swerving drive after Aaron Ramsey put him through. This was his first senior international goal, having now represented his country nine times. Lawrence is now on the books of Championship side Derby County but was part of Manchester United's squad when Gary Johnson took him on a 19 game loan spell during the 2013-14 season whilst the club were in the Championship.

It was also a notable day for Ryan Hedges, even though he didn't get on the field of play. The 22 year old had been given his first ever senior call-up for Wales for the Friday night game, after injuries to other players saw him drafted into the squad. Ryan is currently on the books of Championship side Barnsley, where he has made 13 appearances this season, scoring three goals. Given he had a sluggish start following his move from Swansea City in January 2017, shortly after they curtailed his 2016-17 season loan spell with Yeovil Town, it would seem that he is now becoming more of a regular for the Tykes, even if his last three appearances for them have been from the bench.

Both players will stay with the Welsh squad over the weekend, with a huge home game against the Republic of Ireland still to come on Monday night. The Wales squad also featured a third former Yeovil Town loanee with Wayne Hennessey keeping a clean sheet this evening.

Wales: Hennessey, Gunter, Davies, Williams, Chester, Allen, Ledley, Ramsey, King, Lawrence, Vokes.

Subs: Maxwell, Ward, Ampadu, Lockyer, Taylor, Edwards, J.Williams, Brooks, Woodburn, Hedges, Robson-Kanu.

6 October 2017 : Darren Way Previews The Newport County Game
As part of the build-up to Saturday afternoon's League Two match against Newport County at Rodney Parade, Yeovil Town manager Darren Way spoke to the BBC about the game. With questions from BBC Somerset reporter Dan Albutt, there's an inevitable heavy emphasis on the arrival of Harry Redknapp, but also views on former midfielders Matty Dolan and Ben Tozer and Saturday's opponents. Read that via the link below.

6 October 2017 : Exiles Boss Wary Of Yeovil Town Managerial Milestone
Newport County manager Mike Flynn says that he is aware that his opposite number in the dugouts is marking a milestone tomorrow afternoon when he visits Rodney Parade. The League Two match against Yeovil Town will be first team manager Darren Way's 100th game in charge of the Glovers, having been put in charge of proceedings back in December 2015.

Way's current record gives him 30 wins, 35 draws and 34 defeats across those 99 fixtures in all competitions, and will take his side into South Wales in 17th place in the League Two table - six points behind a Newport side who are in 10th position. The Exiles are currently unbeaten on their newly relaid home turf, and may even be in a slightly false position when it's considered that their summer refurbishment meant a delay in playing matches at Rodney Parade - only four of their eleven fixtures have been on home turf.

Flynn recognises the milestone that Way is going to hit on Saturday, but hopes that he won't be celebrating it too hard by the end of the game:

"He might not be celebrating his achievement on Saturday at 16:50 but of course, it's good to see Darren getting 100 games under his belt. He is Yeovil through and through and heís doing well for a young manager. It's tough, I donít suppose that he's got the biggest of budgets but heís hanging on in there and heís given it a good go."

Despite being the higher-placed League Two side, Flynn has said that he is wary of the battling qualities that his opponents have, and recognises that they have picked up a few good results this season, notably in their last away match, which saw Yeovil triumph against Chesterfield in a 3-2 victory at the Proact Stadium:

"Yeovil will be another difficult challenge. They are a battling team, got some good players and will come here and want to take the points. If you donít work your opponent then every game will be twice as difficult so we have to be up for it, treat them with respect and hopefully we'll come away with the points. It's nice that Yeovil have picked up some good results, they are ticking along and it will be another tough test that we will have to prepare right for."

The Newport boss also noted the arrival of Harry Redknapp to Huish Park yesterday, as an unpaid football advisor. Redknapp is not expected to be present for tomorrow's fixture against Newport, and Flynn felt that it might take him a while to get used to some of the issues affecting League Two sides around the country:

"Harry has a wealth of experience. I'm not sure how much he knows about League Two so it may take him a few weeks to get used to the players and the league. But listen, heís a well-known character and I'm sure he will be a tremendous help for Darren this season."

6 October 2017 : Officials For Newport County vs Yeovil Town
Officials for the League Two match between Newport County and Yeovil Town have been published by the Football League. The match takes place on Saturday 7th October 2017, with a 3.00p.m. kick-off at Rodney Parade. The man in charge of the fixture will be referee Nicholas Kinseley (Essex).

In terms of refereeing at Football League level, he was promoted to this level over the summer of 2015 a single trial game in League Two during the 2014-15 campaign. Prior to his promotion we saw him during the December 2012 match against Portsmouth at Fratton Park when he was a linesman at that time.

We had him as a man in the middle twice during the 2015-16 season, with his performances memorable for entirely opposite reasons. The first was the September 2015 home match against Morecambe, where his actions had a big effect on the match. He sent off Shaun Jeffers for a straight foul on Aaron McGowan - the video replay tended to show that Jeffers wasn't very good at tackling, but there was nothing particularly malicious in it, but off he went, and he was joined at half time by manager Paul Sturrock who let the referee know what he thought of the decision as they went down the tunnel at the break - Sturrock got a one match ban for the game at Crawley Town later that month. The club appealed against the striker's dismissal, but the problem with the Appeals Panel decisions are that you have to provide evidence that the referee got it wrong, and although Jeffers barely made any connection he had raised his leg and so presumably that was enough for them to back the referee. Overall he had the look of a rookie at a new level, and there were times during the game when he seemed to be letting everything get out of control. Meanwhile, having been 2-0 up, Yeovil collapsed in the final five minutes and lost the game by a 2-4 scoreline, with the red card inevitably a key talking point after the match.

We then faced him in April 2016 for the match against Stevenage at Broadhall Way. On this occasion the match referee was in a super-lenient mood, letting tackles go that he probably shouldn't have. In the 84th minute a hopelessly wild and late 'tackle' by Ben Kennedy on Kevin Dawson as he flew up the wing looked like a cast iron red card, particularly when fans were already aware of the standard that Kinseley had set when deciding to dismiss Shaun Jeffers in the earlier season fixture. But referees are a law unto themselves at times, and Kinseley somehow decided that Kennedy's thuggery was of less concern to him than Jeffers' more innocent clumsiness. The end result was a yellow card, and a furious Yeovil bench. Like the September 2015 match, the Glovers also ended up with one of their management team getting banned by the FA for giving his opinion to Mr Kinseley about the incident. This time Terry Skiverton was the one to get a rap over the knuckles, a £500 fine and a single match ban for 'insulting language and/or behaviour'.

Our most recent meeting involving Mr Kinseley was for the August 2016 meeting against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road. For the third time in three games, we felt that he had misjudged a key situation in a game, when former Hatters defender Alex Lacey was shoved over a retaining wall by Luton striker Danny Hylton early in the first half. Lacey was eventually diagnosed with a broken arm, having fallen into a 'moat' area in the Oak Road Stand, and our opinion was that Hylton knew exactly what he was doing. Manager Darren Way was very unamused describing the decision after the game as "an absolute joke" - although he didn't say what punishment he thought Hylton should have had, he certainly felt the officials should have taken stronger action.

Mr Kinseley will be assisted by Robert Dabbs (Dorset) and Christopher Kidd (Oxfordshire). The Fourth Official will be John Farries (Oxfordshire).

5 October 2017 : Valiants Appoint New Management Team
League Two side Port Vale have appointed a new management team. They have recruited Gateshead manager Neil Aspin. The 52 year old has taken up his first management role at Football League level, having also taken charge of Harrogate Town and FC Halifax Town across the last 12 years.

Vale's decision to hire Aspin is no doubt influenced by his playing days. He turned out on 410 occasions as a Port Vale defender between 1989 and 1999, winning their Player of the Season on two separate occasions. He comes in as the replacement to Michael Brown who had been in charge when the Valiants were relegated to League Two over the summer, as well as being in charge during their sluggish start to the 2017-18 season.

They have also brought in former Stoke City Director of Football John Rudge, who will work at Vale Park under the same title. Once again he will need little introduction to his new club, given he was Vale's manager for 16 years, which included winning three promotions and the Football League Trophy. Rudge's time at the club included the recruitment of Aspin to the club - ultimately he became his club captain.

In the wake of the new management team arriving, Caretaker Managers David Kelly and Chris Morgan have left the club. They have also said farewell to Chief Scout Darren Wrack, meaning that once Brown is factored in, four people have headed through the out door in total. The new management team take over with Port Vale lying in 22nd place in the League Two table, on just five points. The bottom three clubs have all been cut adrift by five points, meaning that Vale, Chesterfield and Forest Green Rovers have some distance to make up to drag other teams into the relegation spots.

5 October 2017 : Redknapp Plays Down Suggestion Of Long Term Glovers Relationship
Former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp has played down suggestions that his relationship with Yeovil Town will turn into anything long term. The 70 year old was interviewed by TalkSport radio today about wider issues, but inevitably touched on the subject of his 'football advisory' role at Huish Park.

Redknapp has said that he does not regard the offer as a 'long term' commitment and that he does not have firm plans to attend Yeovil Town fixtures - something that goes against the general steer given in the lead up to announcements concerning Redknapp's role. He describes it more as an occasional arrangement:

"No, I'm going down this morning (Thursday) but I can't (go full time). Darren Way rang me and just asked if I would go down if I had any spare time, to just pop down and spend the morning with him or whatever. I just said that if I get the time, or when I can, then I would do it. But I wouldn't be making a commitment to it long-term or full-time. I am going to go down this morning, have a cup of tea with him, and sit down and have a chat with him. But after that, if I can get to a game I will do, but it is not something I will be doing full on, that's for sure."

"Darren Way is a great lad, and I got to know him a few years ago as he came to Tottenham a couple of times to watch them training. He's dead keen and he just said could I go and spend a little bit of time, if I get any spare time, to sit down and go through some of the problems that he is facing as a young manager. Going down to Yeovil today, I'm quite looking forward to it as I'll have a cup of tea with the boys and I'm looking forward to seeing them. Terry Skiverton who is the assistant is another real Yeovil lad and was a good player for Yeovil. Him and Darren are doing a good job on limited resources."

"If you look at Steve Perryman, I couldn't get into a position like Steve is in. He is full time, but look at the great job he has done down there at Exeter with Paul Tisdale. Stevie Perryman is such a football brain to have for a young man like Paul Tisdale over the years. Steve has been there for about 12 years now or maybe even more, giving his experience to Paul Tisdale. I think that's fantastic. But it's not for me long-term or full on. But there's got to be guys out there who have managed and played, with experience who can go into a football club and help a young manager. I think it's something that should be done more."

Redknapp spends the remainder of the interview, largely talking about Tottenham Hotspur, England and Harry Kane. The above represents the Yeovil-specific content.

5 October 2017 : Ladies Switch Club Forum To Coincide With Sunderland Visit
Yeovil Town Ladies have changed their plans for their public forum that was due to be held next Monday. The forum had been set up to discuss the club's future in the light of the Football Association plans that were published late last month. The Ladies provided their own initial response to the FA's plans, which included an invitation to all interested parties to attend a meeting to discuss a shortfall in funding, coupled with the need for the Ladies to turn full time in order to preserve their current FAWSL1 status. That forum will now be switched to take place on Sunday, immediately after their FAWSL1 match against Sunderland Ladies at Huish Park.

The switch of plans has been done because of the large amount of support for the event, but also to help concentrate minds around a matchday when a large proportion of their support would naturally be at Huish Park anyway. The Ladies explain their plans:

Further to our Club Statement released last week, following The FA's announcement to restructure the top of the women's football pyramid, Yeovil Town Ladies FC are now in a position to share the next steps with its fans, business community and media. The club urges fans to 'Pack The Park' in this Sundays match v Sunderland which kicks off at 2.00p.m. Following this fixture, the club is giving everyone connected with the club in all capacities, the opportunity to discuss the recent announced changes, but to also find out ways in which they can get involved and support its future development.†

The forum event was originally planned for Monday evening, however in view of the large amount of support already sent in to the club, it has been decided to move this event to a day earlier, whilst also encouraging a big attendance at the next FA Womenís Super League home match. A new email address has been set up, giving people the chance to send in questions or suggestions to and this will be monitored in the lead up to Sunday, with any key questions or information shared where possible.

Following the match on Sunday, the Alec Stock Lounge, will be made available to fans, media and businesses, where spokespeople from the club will be on hand to share some ideas and plans, which will assist with our application for a Tier 1 license in the 2018-19 season, and therefore, keeping its deserved place in the top of the womenís game, where it worked so hard over a number of years to gain its place on merit. Only those with a matchday ticket are eligible to attend this post match event and should numbers attending this be so high, the forum will be delivered on a larger scale in a slightly different way, in order to get our message and plans over to everybody in attendance and those keen to support us moving forward.

The packed Main Stand at Huish Park for a FAWSL fixture
The packed Main Stand at Huish Park for a FAWSL fixture

The club mantra of Achieve By Unity, is one which helped the club win the Club of the Year award twice in three years, which was presented by The Football Association in 2014 and 2016. This lead to success on the pitch as well as off it, when last year, Yeovil Town Ladies FC reached their current high profile after winning the league, beating Bristol City, who were second and Everton in third. The club, staff, players and board and committed to remaining ambitious and whilst focusing on this current season of football, the application for the 2018-19 season has been given a deadline of 10th November for submission.†

Tickets for Sundays match v Sunderland can be purchased online here, with turnstiles open from 12.30p.m. for the 2.00p.m. kick-off. The after match event is to begin from 4.00p.m. after the full-time whistle. We are committed to still providing a great matchday experience, and Sunday is no different, so aside from this, come along and watch some elite level top flight football.

4 October 2017 : Taff's Gloversblog : The Hype About Harry
Yesterday brought some rather unexpected news, as the name of Harry Redknapp was announced as a Yeovil Town appointment. Coming in as a 'football advisor' just a few weeks after leaving Birmingham City, his arrival has inevitably raised a few eyebrows. The latest Taff's Gloversblog examines both the benefits and the pitfalls of such an appointment, as well as looking closer into a few of the things that he has said. Read on via the link below, and feel free to add your own views.

4 October 2017 : Harry Redknapp Gives Thoughts On His New Advisor Role At Yeovil Town
Harry Redknapp has said that he will be making his first visit to Huish Park tomorrow, as he commences his first day as an informal football advisor at Yeovil Town. On an unpaid, non-contract basis, the 70 year old former Birmingham City and Tottenham Hotspur boss will be working with first team manager Darren Way in a role that is not strongly fixed, but would appear to be one that will involve Redknapp sitting in the stands and watching, rather than directly getting involved in the dugout area on matchdays.

Redknapp has had past contact with both of Yeovil Town's current management team. He was Spurs boss at the time the Premier League side loaned the Glovers a batch of youngsters, including Steven Caulker, Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend when Terry Skiverton was in charge of the team. More recently he was Birmingham's boss when Way attempted to bring midfielder Corey O'Keeffe to Huish Park, as a loan deal in the summer. Whilst that deal didn't go through, it did establish some contacts, and Redknapp explained to BBC Somerset how he saw his role in the early days:

"I've known Darren for quite a while and he's a great guy. I think he's doing an excellent job down at Yeovil. He just said if I could come in, whenever I get time to pop down and just be around him for a little bit. I know Terry Skiverton well, and to just be around when I get the time and the opportunity, if I can pass a little bit of experience on, then I'm only too pleased to help. I'm going to pop down tomorrow (Thursday). I'll come down and have a chat with the boys and Darren."

Redknapp also has a strong connection with the Yeovil Town board, given that club owner Norman Hayward and Director Brian Willis were both on the AFC Bournemouth board during the 1990s, whilst Redknapp was in his first managerial job. Despite the Glovers' current 17th place position in the League Two table, he said that he felt the club was still doing well given its constraints:

"I think they've done well under the circumstances. It's difficult, as Darren is not working on a big budget there, so he's obviously got a tough job on his hands. But Yeovil is a good job, and a club with great tradition. I know one or two of the Directors there as well. It's all about just getting the best out of the players that he's got there, which I'm sure he does. But there will be little pitfalls along the way, and little things that he hasn't encountered before that I've come across in all of the games that I've managed, where I can give him a little bit of advice."

The Sandbanks-based former manager has taken charge of seven different clubs (along with two spells at Portsmouth) and has had a reputation for bringing in prominent players for large transfer fees. He admitted that wasn't going to be an option at Yeovil Town. However, he said that one pattern to the sort of clubs that he'd been involved in, was that they were often near the bottom of their division when he arrived:

"I've always taken over clubs that have been stuck at the bottom of the league. I've never met anybody that can suddenly turn very average players into great players. So I've always gone into clubs and tried to improve them, and bring better players in, as well as working with them. But Darren has got a tight budget there, and he can't just go out and bring players in willy-nilly. He's got to work with what he's got. So that's what he does, and he does that very well."

3 October 2017 : Harry Redknapp Advisory Role Confirmed By Yeovil Town
Yeovil Town have confirmed this morning's news concerning their plans to work with former Birmingham City, West Ham United and AFC Bournemouth manager Harry Redknapp. The news broke via a BT Sport football pundit programme that the 70 year old was interested in working with manager Darren Way, and the club have now gone on the record to state that this will be going ahead. They describe it as an 'approach' to Redknapp, although later welcome him to Huish Park, suggesting that their expectancy is that all parties are in agreement.

Redknapp's employment is described as being 'an advisory role with the first team' although there's no detail on the exact scope that role will entail yet. Redknapp has said in recent interviews that he was after a part time position that would allow him to work with a younger manager. He stated that he would provide that position free of charge, which would imply that there is no contract between Redknapp and the club at this stage. Way himself has said in the club's statement that he hopes Redknapp will be able to pass on his knowledge to him during his time at the club:

"Harry has been in the game a long time and is someone I highly respect for all the experience he's gained and achievements he's accomplished. I'm still starting my journey in management and feel the opportunity to bring in someone like Harry to offer advice and pass on his knowledge is a no-brainer. There's no pressure or long-term commitment from either side, but I'm looking forward to having Harry at Huish Park and we welcome him to the club."

Current expectation is that Redknapp would not be in the dugouts on matchdays, but would watch the game from the stands, although we'll see how things unfold in due course.

3 October 2017 : Redknapp Initial Contact Made By Glovers Boss Darren Way
Earlier reports that former Birmingham City and West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp might be working with Yeovil Town, may appear to have some legs to them. The 70 year old appeared on a BT Sport programme earlier this week, and told the programme that he was still interested in a footballing role, specifically citing Yeovil Town as a club that he could envisage working with on a part time basis.

Redknapp has subsequently revealed in a secondary interview, that he has received specific contact from Yeovil Town boss Darren Way, thus removing the question of whether Redknapp was just talking about a hypothetical situation, or one where there had been hard contact between himself and the Glovers. This afternoon, freelance journalist Chris Spittles, who regularly reports for BBC Somerset has given his understanding of the developments, believing that Redknapp may be at Huish Park this week, and that he will attend future matches. Chris explains in a series of tweets:

"Yeovil Town boss Darren Way contacted Harry Redknapp after seeing Harry quoted about working with a young manager when he left Birmingham City. Way is keen to utilise Harry's experience and contacts to help Yeovil Town and the board are happy for Harry to get involved. Redknapp could be at Huish Park this week under Darren's invitation and intends to attend upcoming Yeovil matches. Darren has been criticised for his perceived insular approach but on this occasion has looked outside Yeovil for help. I know Harry divides opinion in football these days, but surely Yeovil Town have nothing to lose if he's willing to work with Darren Way in an advisory role."

Chris doesn't divulge where he's got his information from, although given that it's been retweeted by the club's Press Officer, the content would appear to have some semi-official backing. As yet, there's no title for Redknapp's role, although in secondary interviews, he saw his goal as being that of a Director of Football position, that would presumably not be in the dugout on matchdays.

Redknapp indicated that he had no interest in pursuing a full time management position at any club, having left his job at Birmingham City on September 16th 2017, indicating that the most he would consider would be a part-time role within commutable distance of his South Dorset home. He has performed this sort of role at two other football clubs - in January 2016 when he became a Director at Wimborne Town, and then in March 2016 when he was brought in at Derby County to work as a Football Advisor to head coach Darren Wassall until the end of the 2015-16 season. Both appointments ultimately became short term affairs. At the time of his appointment at Derby he insisted that he would not be performing a hands-on role at the club:

"I'm not director of football. I won't be bringing any players in, I won't be making any signings. I'll sit in the stand. I'm not going to run down to the dug-out or have a hotline to the touch line."

3 October 2017 : Glovers Supporters Director Talks About Recent Huish Park Attendances
Yesterday, both BBC Somerset and BBC Points West ran features on Yeovil Town concerning the club's low attendances during the early part of the 2017-18 season. They centred on the 1,534 figure that was released by the club last month detailing the 2017-18 Season Ticket Sales, and also on the crowds that have turned up to the League Two home fixtures so far.

Yeovil Town have had six league home fixtures during the 2017-18 season. With the exception of the match against Coventry City, which fell on a Bank Holiday weekend, and saw the Sky Blues bring 1,056 away supporters, in a crowd of 3,754, the other five home fixtures have all fallen below what had been the club's record low Football League crowd of 2,749, which in itself had only been set during September 2016 for the game against Hartlepool United. Whilst the new low is now recorded as 2,205 for the September home match against Morecambe, any of those five fixtures would have 'beaten' that Hartlepool figure:

12.09.2017 : 2,205 : L2 vs Morecambe
12.08.2017 : 2,464 : L2 vs Accrington Stanley
30.09.2017 : 2,556 : L2 vs Colchester United
23.09.2017 : 2,614 : L2 vs Port Vale
09.09.2017 : 2,732 : L2 vs Cheltenham Town

As part of BBC Somerset's coverage, they spoke to Supporters Director David Mills, with presenter Claire Carter asking him why he felt crowds had dropped, and what the club planned to do about it. Read the interview via the link below.

3 October 2017 : Harry Redknapp Offers Up Services To Yeovil Town Free Of Charge
Former Birmingham City and AFC Bournemouth manager Harry Redknapp has openly thrown his hat into the ring, saying that he would like to get involved at Yeovil Town. Whilst the Glovers board and first team management have not made any comment suggesting that they are seeking such a person, Redknapp has suggested he would be willing to work at Huish Park free of charge, with current manager Darren Way as some kind of a football consultant.

Redknapp was speaking as a pundit on BT Sport's Score programme, being asked what he might seek to do in the wake of being sacked by Birmingham City after a string of poor results at the start of the 2017-18 season, and was asked where his career might take him. He suggested that a part time role, close to his home in Sandbanks, might suit him and specifically named Yeovil Town and Darren Way:

"What I wouldn't mind doing is going in with a young manager somewhere and going in a couple of days a week to help out. Up the road from me at Yeovil, if the young manager there rang me, I don't want any money for it, I'd go in and do a couple of days with him and just see if I can help. Darren Way is a smashing lad, with the smallest budget I think in the Football League. It'd give me something to do in the mornings. Something like that would suit me fine. I'm not going to travel; I'm not going to move house now. But a couple of days a week and to watch them play on Saturdays, I'd enjoy that."

Redknapp's claim that Yeovil Town have the smallest budget in the Football League might raise the eyebrows of personnel at Morecambe and Accrington Stanley. In an October 2016 interview with Chairman John Fry - his last full-length radio interview - he described the club as being "just below halfway mark with the budget size" in comparison with other League Two clubs.

There is an obvious Yeovil Town connection with Redknapp already in place. Glovers owner Norman Hayward was Chairman at AFC Bournemouth during the 1990s, and was the man at the helm when Redknapp left Dean Court at the end of the 1991-92 season. There are conflicting reports as to how Redknapp departed the club, but he was given a £100,000 pay-off on his exit, suggesting it was by 'mutual' agreement. He then moved on to West Ham United, as assistant manager to Billy Bonds, later taking up the first team manager's position.

2 October 2017 : Bristol 1 Yeovil 0 : Brown Strike Sinks Ladies
Yeovil Town Ladies went down to a narrow defeat on Saturday evening, after a single goal from local rivals Bristol City Women left them still looking for their first points of the 2017-18 season. Their 1-0 defeat came via a Frankie Brown shot just before the half hour mark, as she bundled the ball home from close range, with Yana Daniels having cut in from the left hand side before she put a cross in to the far post.

The match at the Stoke Gifford Stadium had seen the home side provide the majority of the chances in the first period, with Megan Walsh twice saving from Lauren Hemp - the same player later looped a long range shot off the corner of the crossbar, with Walsh stranded, whilst Danique Kerkdijk found her shot on goal deflected just wide of the post before the break.

In the second period, Yeovil were much stronger, as they tried to force an equalising goal. A Gemma Evans free kick found Nicola Cousins, but her shot went narrowly wide. Then Kayleigh Green had a pair of chances to score, only to find Bristol keeper Sophie Baggaley in the way. Yeovil were also denied a late penalty when there appeared to be some holding back in the box, but referee Andrew Sheppard was unconvinced. Speaking after the game, striker Annie Heatherson admitted the first half wasn't up to scratch, but thought her side improved after the break:

"We didn't click in the first half and our awareness of where players were wasn't good. But once we'd managed to start that out in the second half it was a lot better for us. People might think we're going to be among the favourites for relegation this season, but we don't care about that because it's pressure we don't need. The season isn't over one or two games and we know that as it goes on we'll get better and get some results. We can be good in an attacking way and in a defensive way, but the important thing is putting the two together in the same game."

Yeovil Town Ladies are next in action on Sunday, when Sunderland Ladies are the visitors to Huish Park. Tickets for the game can be purchased here.

Final Score: Bristol City Women 1 Yeovil Town Ladies 0.

Scorer: Frankie Brown (29 mins, 1-0)

Bristol City Women: (3-5-2): Sophie Baggaley; Frankie Brown, Danique Kerkdijk, Millie Turner; Loren Dykes, Chloe Arthuer, Julie Biesmans, Carla Humphrey, Yana Daniels; Lauren Hemp, Charlie Estcourt.
