Ciderspace News Page : Commemorative Badge For Wigan Trip
10 March 2014 : Commemorative Badge For Wigan Trip
A commemorative badge is being produced for Yeovil Town's forthcoming Championship fixture against Wigan Athletic. The match takes place on Tuesday 18th March at the DW Stadium, and has two historical significances to it. The first will see the Glovers play the current FA Cup holders on their home patch at second tier level.

The other obvious connection between the two clubs is that they are former Southern Premier League and Northern Premier League title winners, with Wigan last winning the competition during the 1974-75 season. They were also Champions during the 1970-71 season - the last time that the Glovers won the Southern League Premier Division title.

Wigan had the same problems with the Football League's election system as Yeovil Town at that time, applying a total of 34 times to join the 'closed shop' before finally being allowed in during 1978, replacing Southport. In doing so they became the last club to get into the League via the election method, with it finally being replaced by a promotion/relegation system in 1986.

To recognise the meeting between the two sides, Glovers supporter Tim Lancaster will be producing another one of his commemorative enamel lapel badges. This will be on sale direct from Tim, who will be at the Wigan game on the night of the match, or they can be ordered by post.

Please send cheques for 3.75 (inclusive of postage and packaging) to Tim Lancaster at 41, College Green, Yeovil, BA21 4JR. Note that he won't receive the badges until the day before the game so for those who order by post, they will be sent out on or just after Wednesday 19th March. If you want a badge reserved to pick up direct from Tim at the game itself, e-mail - he'll provide some details of where to meet him nearer the time.
