The Football League have published the results of their 2010 Supporters Survey. The survey polled 36,822 supporters of which 192 identified themselves as Yeovil Town supporters. The club specific results are fed to its 72 member clubs for their own analysis, whilst the League publish a generic report detailing matters from the point of view of the League overall.
Some clubs do get a mention though. With ratings out of 10, League One sides Exeter City (8.1) and Huddersfield Town (7.8) come out on top throughout the whole of the Football League in terms of how valued supporters felt by their football club. The overall average rating across all clubs was 6.3 out of 10.
In terms of websites, the Football League's survey recorded a significant drop from the last 2008 survey in terms of those who rely upon their own club's official website. In 2008, a total of 68 percent considered it their primary source of information. That is now down to 55 percent, with the main gain coming from unofficial websites (up to 21% from 15%) and sports news sites (e.g. BBC Sport, up to 7% from 3%). In terms of which clubs fared best, Bristol City's official website was given a mark of 9.3 out of 10, whilst Leeds United came in second.
We'll have a scour through the 72 page report tonight to see if any other unusual statistics leap out. In the meantime, feel free to read it yourself, via the link below. As far as we can tell, the statistic concerning the number of Yeovil fans who responded is the only one that gives a Glovers specific-figure.
