Yeovil Town, predicted to be second bottom of Football League One have guaranteed themselves a promotion place after a brilliant second half performance saw them take all three points from Stevenage yesterday.
Incidentally congratulations to Walsall, picked to be bottom who made their way into the play off places yesterday at the expense of Swindon (ha ha ha!).
But Saturday 13th April belonged to Yeovil Town Football Club!
The moments Sam Foley and James Hayter scored at the away end yesterday will keep me going all week and the couple of minutes after the game when King Gary Johnson and the whole team whooped it up for us was ruddy brilliant.
The only reason , there are spare seats shown in the photo was that this was a Yeovil Saturday and it was pissing down with rain! We did a pretty good job of ramming the rest of the stand.
If you reckon there’s something to our slogan “achieve by unity”, check out #ytfc on twitter this morning.
Yeovil is a small club and there’s not much else to support in Somerset (wonderful) or Dorset (where I came from). Our fans don’t fight or get arrested because we’ve got better things to do.
We’ve got the best keeper in the league. (aww)
And we’ve got Paddy Madden (unbelievable)
Which is what happens when a brilliant bloke (Terry Skiverton) agrees to work for a brilliant manager (King Gary Johnson) , to get the players and fans together to have fun and achieve promotion.
Thanks too to all our rivals for messing things up
If you want to see football played the way it should be , then support the Glovers in the playoffs!
When we get promoted
This is what we’ll sing
We are Yeovil
We are Yeovil
Gary is our King!
