Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson is to get directly involved in the club's relaunched promotion of their Food Store plans this weekend. With the club getting involved a series of interviews and media features this week across the region, relating to the sale of six acres of land at Huish Park to the north of the stadium to retail chain CDS Superstores International, Gary will appear on a DVD aimed at igniting interest in the plans amongst supporters.
Fans who attend Saturday's home match against Walsall will be given a copy of the DVD when they arrive at the ground, which will contain a message from the Glovers boss, giving his views on the Food Store plans. Speaking earlier this week to ITV West Country, Gary said that he hoped fans would give the scheme their backing:
"The club has worked very very hard to keep this club in League One. That's what they've done. The area now and the stadium just needs a little bit of an upgrade, and that's really where we are. We hope that the supporters will lobby the council and support it for us."
Late last month, the club received a set-back in those plans when Brympton Parish Council and Yeovil Town Council issued a recommendation for refusal of the plans. However, the final decision on the plans will be taken by South Somerset District Council, who have given a notional target date of May 1st for their decision to be made.
