Yeovil Town are now confirmed to be on the look out for new shirt sponsors for the 2012-13 season. Given the club's two pre-season friendlies have seen the players turn out wearing shirts without the name of Jones Building Contractors on them, the news that they are no longer the club's main sponsors has been fairly inevitable.
Glovers Commercial Manager Dave Linney has indicated in this week's Western Gazette that the company chose not to take up the option to extend their current deal, but may continue to sponsor the club on a smaller scale, presumably through individual match sponsorship agreements.
As such, we definitely know now that there will be a new logo on the shirts for this season. However, as yet no firm agreement has been reached with a new sponsor. Anyone wanting to stick in a late bid should contact Dave Linney as soon as possible.
The lack of a main shirt sponsor may go a long way towards explaining why there are no new replica shirts on sale at the club yet. Clearly any new sponsor will want their name on any shirts supporters purchase, and so it seems likely that the replica shirts will only follow once the main sponsorship has been agreed.
