28 June 2007 : PFA Hall of Fame
As part of its centenary celebrations the Professional Footballers' Association is creating a Hall of Fame which will be populated by one player from "each of the 100 professional clubs to have played in the Football League throughout the last 100 years". Leaving aside the fact that there has been far more than 100 professional clubs to have played in the Football League over the last century (so we're not entirely sure on what principle some will have been excluded) each club, together with the PFA and and a panel of sports journalists, has been asked to nominate a list of ten players from which the winner will go forward to the Hall of Fame.

The list created is :

Len Harris, Alan Herrity, Warren Patmore, Dick Plumb, Terry Skiverton, Mickey Spencer, Alec Stock, Dave Taylor, Ken Thompson, Darren Way.

Everyone will have their own views on who should have made the list, and indeed ours would be about 50% different, but that's the one we have so go here to vote.

To provide a bit of context for those who didn't see some of these players on the pitch :

Len Harris - appearance record holder with 691 games for the Glovers between 1958 and 1972. An immense centre back / left back who was, and is, a total gentleman off the pitch. Still lives in the area with his family. An appreciation of Len can be read here.

Alan Herrity - second highest appearances for the club with 523. Pretty much the automatic right-back first choice from 1961-1973 when his football career was ended by injury. Sadly Alan died recently back in his home town of Newport. It's slightly ironic that the club did nothing to recognise the passing of a man it now nominates as a legend.

Warren Patmore - Wazza! 1995-01, 290 appearances, 140 goals. Pace of a tortoise, 'belly's gonna get ya', great bloke. A feature after Warren hit his hundredth goal can be found here.

Dick Plumb - two spells, 1968-70 and 1974-78, with time at Charlton Athletic and Exeter City in between. Big traditional centre forward who scored 150 goals for the Glovers in 337 appearances.

Terry Skiverton - current Mr Yeovil Town. Club captain who has lead the team on the field through its greatest days by example. 320 appearances. 1999 - present.

Mickey Spencer - club's first full-time professional and scored the first ever competitive goal at Huish Park. Bit of a rarity, a Yeovil striker with pace. 104 goals between 1989 and 1995.

Alec Stock - acknowledged by those who knew him as one of the nicest men in football. Player-manager from 1946-49. Plotted the tactics, and contributed a goal, in the famous win against Sunderland. The Ciderspace obituary can be read here.

Dave Taylor - most prolific post-war goal scorer with 285, including a staggering 60 in the 1960-61 season. 436 appearances from 1960-69. Thankfully recovered from serious illness a couple of years ago.

Ken Thompson - cultured left-sided midfielder who played 517 times for the Glovers between 1967 and 1977 and scored 66 goals.

Darren Way - Weasel. Five foot and not much else, but could out jump six footers. Perpetual midfield motion. 2000-2006, 247 appearances, 33 goals.

28 June 2007 : BBC Radio Bristol YTFC Review Of The Season
The following has been received from BBC Radio Bristol with respect to their Saturday Sport programme this coming Saturday:

Glovers boss Russell Slade is questioned on all aspects of the campaign, from last summer's player recruitment to the Wembley play-off final disappointment.

Split into four parts, the review comprehensively rounds up an momentous season when Yeovil finished in the highest league position in their history.

With Saturday Sport also featuring an in-depth interview with new Yeovil signing Paul Warne, it is a must-listen for all Glovers fans.

28 June 2007 : J-P Signs For Latics
And right on the back of our item below saying Russell Slade was resigned to losing Jean-Paul Kalala, news breaks through the Oldham Athletic Official Site that he has signed for our League One rivals.

Slade brought J-P with him from Grimsby Town when he arrived as manager at Huish Park. He was, perhaps surprisingly, one of the few arrivals that summer not to get a two-year deal, only being contracted for a single season. Whether Russell privately now regrets that decision we won't know, though he has been attempting to get Kalala to sign a further contract, an attempt that has ultimately failed.

Kalala made forty-two appearances in the last campaign, including thirty-six starts. Primarily a holding midfielder he scored one goal, away against Gillingham in the final game of the normal season.

At least one Yeovil fan we know now has the lengthy task of unpicking 'JEAN-PAUL KAMUDIMBA KALALA' from the back of his replica shirt.

Farewell to The Frenchman.

28 June 2007 : Dempsey Deal Nearly Done
The very public, for Yeovil Town, and long-running process of acquiring Gary Dempsey appears to be reaching its conclusion if reports in the Western Daily Press are correct that he had his medical yesterday at Huish Park. The paper suggests the formal signing will take place on Friday. It also keeps the rumours going that Dempsey's former Aberdeen team-mate Dan Smith (Ciderspace, 22nd June) is a possible acquisition.

Other team news is that Russell Slade expects Scott Guyett and Matthew Rose to sign new one-year-deals, is uncertain about the plans of Lee Morris who has yet to respond to the offer put to him, and seems pretty much resigned to the departure of Jean-Paul Kalala. Slade also conceded that there had been a few enquiries made by other clubs about some members of the current squad.

28 June 2007 : Owusu Still In The Frame?
Speculation that Lloyd Owusu is set to sign for Yeovil Town has been rumbling on for some weeks - see Ciderspace 12th June.

Today's Mirror - though as a word of warning this particular national red-top has a spectacularly bad record for accuracy with the occasional Yeovil related items it dishes up - stokes the flames a little more by claiming that talks between club and player (and doubtless agent) are now at the personal terms stage.
