Admission prices and kick-off time for Wednesday week's trip to Wellington have been announced. The game takes place at the Playing Field in Wellington, Somerset on Wednesday 28th October and has been arranged between their manager Warren Patmore and Glovers manager Terry Skiverton to open their new floodlights.
Admission prices are £5.00 for adults and £3.50 for OAPs/children. There are also special group tickets available, with Wellington charging £15.00 for families of four and £25.00 for groups of six adults.
We're not 100 percent sure, but the implication is that the group tickets are only available in advance of the game, so anyone wanting to buy such a ticket should phone 07841-330543 or 07967-339625 for further details.
The game kicks off at 7.45p.m. and although the primary focus will be the opening of Wellington's floodlights, which have cost them £30,000, along with a number of ground improvements, the Toolstation Premier Division side are celebrating a couple of other things on the night.
On the night, the club will be presented with a Community Club Award by the Somerset Football Association; the highest award possible under the Charter Standard scheme. They will also be celebrating the completion of the refurbishment of their clubhouse lounge, which no doubt Yeovil Town fans will be welcomed into (where they can hopefully find out what a clubhouse looks like!)
Wellington Chairman Ken Bird has hailed the completion of all three projects, as well as the standard of football his side are now playing and speaking to the Somerset County Gazette praised the progress he felt his club had made over recent years:
"This night will mark the culmination of a remarkable couple of years for Wellington AFC - both on and off the pitch. We have improved the standard of football at which we play, the number of teams we run and the overall quality of our facilities. None of this would have been achieved without a huge amount of hard work by everyone involved in the club and also support from our various grant providers and sponsors. Next Wednesday will be a chance for us to say thank-you to all of them at the same time as enjoying some quality football - we hope as many people as possible will come along."
Whilst there's been no suggestion of what sort of team Yeovil Town will field in next week's match, we'd hope that with there being no official Reserve Team side at Huish Park this season, and no midweek game to play, that the club will field an 'alternative XI' based upon those who don't take to the field on Saturday at the Memorial Stadium against Bristol Rovers. With the first team squad considerably bigger this season, that should leave room for a fairly strong side to take to the field, hopefully.
