Fair weather blogger
Ok, I only blog when we’re winning , but did you want Yeovil’s misery of the past 8 years? This blog celebrates Yeovil Town from the comfort of London Town, I did not venture 240 miles on public transport and I am very grateful for the fans who made the match possible by helping out with the covers on Saturday morning.

Yeovil Town’s run of victories now stretches 11 matches after a 3-2 defeat of National League Gateshead on Saturday. You can watch these goals from the BBC’s link

Thanks to Sheridan Robins whose commentary we were cruelly denied live. Thanks to Three Valleys for plugging the gap.
Having gone 3-0 up, the Glovers and the referee conspired to make a game of it. The referee granted a highly dubious penalty

When one of their few attempts on goal, resulted in a deflection looping onto the cross-bar and falling onto the head of Gateshead’s Dinanga, some fans feared a replay on the wrong side of the Tyne. Fortunately the remaining two minutes of added time did not yield a third goal (see Sheridan Robin’s goal round-up above).
The reality is that for 95 of the 97 minutes this was an easy win against a team vying for promotion to the English Football League. Yeovil feels like a proper club again.
Here’s manager Mark Cooper’s verdict

Thanks to all the Gateshead fans who made the huge round trip

Were you there, Carsten Staehr , were you there?
The Third Round is the holy grail
Yeovil are through to the second round, the draw for which is on ITV this afternoon (ball 33).
Mark Cooper has called the third round “the holy grail” so we can assume he will be putting out a full strength side whoever we play next.
The club remain top of the National League South and travel to Torquay on Tuesday night with several stars rested from today’s game.
Good luck Glovers
No matter how underwhelming #TUFC have been this season, this is gonna a very hard place to go and win. The atmosphere is always good, and there always seems to be tension between the two sides whenever they play.
