BASSETT NETS ON SECOND DEBUT FOR DORCHESTER

The 18-year-old re-joined the Magpies last Friday and was named on the bench for the match at the Avenue, for what is his second spell at the club. 
Fellow Glovers loanee Joe Lea was also amongst the substitutes, but was carrying a knock from the 2-1 loss to Slough Town on Tuesday night and remained an unused substitute. 
With the score at 2-0 Dorchester introduced Bassett after 56 minutes, with the attacker putting the game beyond doubt in the 93rd minute with a clinical finish to net his first goal for the Dorset outfit. 
Both Lea and Bassett will be available for selection on Tuesday when Dorchester face Portland United in the Dorset Senior Cup before travelling to Kings Langley in the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier on Saturday. 

REPORT: YEOVIL TOWN 0-0 GRIMSBY TOWN

In a tight affair in Somerset, both sides produced opportunities to break the deadlock, but had to settled for a share of the spoils as Town achieved a fifth consecutive cleansheet and moved up to 11th in League Two.
Darren Way stuck with the same starting eleven for a third match in a row having yielded nine points from their previous three fixtures, with Bevis Mugabi retaining his spot at right-back and Tahvon Campbell continuing to lead the line for Town. 
Yeovil had plenty of attacking options on their bench, with Francois Zoko, Izale McLeod and top scorer Tom Eaves all at Way’s disposal, with the Green and Whites looking to make it four wins on the bounce. 
After a minute’s silence to remember servicemen both past and present as part of Town’s remembrance for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, Huish Park burst into noise inside five minutes when the visitors felt they should have won a penalty. 
Mariners top scorer Omar Bogle drove into the box before going down under the challenge of Darren Ward, only for a goal-kick to be given to the surprise of many inside the ground. 
League Two’s second top scorer enjoyed a lively start to proceedings in Somerset, forcing Artur Krysiak to tip over the bar with a fierce shot from range after 12 minutes, before firing an effort just wide from the edge of the box 10 minutes later.
Fielding a settled starting eleven for a third consecutive match, Way was forced into making a change after 24 minutes when Campbell picked up an injury, calling Eaves into action midway through the first half. 
With opportunities at a premium Otis Khan and Ryan Hedges both had shots from the edge of the box blocked, before Grimsby’s James Berrett went into the referee’s book for simulation after going down too easily inside the box. 
After a largely scrappy remainder of the first period, Town manufactured their best opportunity of the match just before the break through the workmanship of substitute Eaves. 
The Glovers frontman hustled Grimsby right-back Zac Mills into a mistake allowing Eaves to drive towards goal on the by-line, only for his pull-back to be taken off the toe of Khan by Danny Collins with the goal begging. 
After a tepid opening 45 minutes, Grimsby were first to register an attempt on goal after the break with former Glover James Berrett firing high and wide of the target from a good position inside the box. 
The Mariners went close again on the 50 minute mark when Collins headed Luke Summerfield’s free-kick just over the bar, before Town produced their best chance of the match so far.
Khan rampaged to the by-line on the left-hand side before firing a wicked ball across goal, with a sliding Hedges only inches away from applying the finishing touch at the back post.
The Glovers continued to apply pressure on the visiting goal and went close twice in quick succession minutes later. 
Matty Dolan’s whipped corner made its way through a number of bodies in the box before hitting a surprised Alex Lawless, with the ball somehow being hacked clear from the Mariners six-yard box. 
Moments later another inch perfect delivery – this time from Khan – fell to Eaves in the box, but the Town striker couldn’t get the ball out of his feet to get a shot away from close range. 
Sensing a shift in momentum Way introduced Zoko for Khan just past the hour mark, a change which almost produced an immediate impact. 
From a Dolan corner Zoko looped a header at the back post goalwards, only for his effort to land on the roof of the net with Mariners ‘keeper James McKeown seemingly beaten. 
With the game still missing a goal both sides pressed in the final 10 minutes, with Krysiak having to be alert to get down low to his right to get a strong wrist to Berrett’s effort from the edge of the box after 80 minutes. 
Grimsby wrung the changes in the closing stages and seemed happy to settle for a point getting numbers behind the ball, frustrating the Glovers who pressed for a winner in the closing stages. 
Unable to find a way to open the scoring Way’s side had to settle for a point at Huish Park, extending their unbeaten run to four matches in League Two and picking up a fifth consecutive cleansheet in all competitions, as the Green and Whites moved into the top half of the table. 
Yeovil Town: Krysiak; Mugabi, Ward, Lacey, Smith; Dawson, Lawless, Dolan; Hedges, Campbell (Eaves 24’), Khan (Zoko 63’).
Bookings: Lawless 29’, Mugabi 37’, Smith 50’.
Subs not used: Maddison, Shephard, Dickson, Whitfield, McLeod. 
Grimsby Town: McKeown; Mills, Collins, Gowling, Andrew; Bolarinwa (Brown 82’), Disley (Comley 78’), Summerfield, Berrett; Bogle, Vernon (Jackson 86’). 
Bookings: Berrett 29’.
Subs not used: Henderson, Boyce, Pearson, Vose, Jackson. 

WAY: SQUAD ARE DETERMINED TO REACH THE PLAY-OFFS

The Glovers come into Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match against Grimsby Town at Huish Park having won their last three matches whilst not conceding in their last four fixtures.
Having also picked up the maximum nine points from their last three outings at Huish Park, Town are now lying just a single point outside the play-offs ahead of the weekend’s round of fixtures. 
Currently sitting fourth in the League Two form table for the last six games, Way is confident in his squad. 
"You’ve just got to look at the position the players are in,” said Way. “If I was a player in that dressing room, knowing what the consequences are, I would want to get in the play-offs.
"They will take that opportunity because they are a group that is very resilient and very strong and they push each other very hard. That’s why we’re in the position we are in.
"We know it’s no fluke. The group are growing stronger together. They are a little more instinctive – certainly the younger players because they know what is expected. And they’re believing.”
With virtually a full squad to choose from pressure for places is at its peak, leaving Way hoping for more of the work ethic demonstrated so far this season.
"What we have got is a real good group of players who know that they have to perform. That can only push upwards. They want to achieve as a group, not just individually.
"It’s important I make sure we keep those dynamics of hard work and sticking together."

SUPPORTER SURVEY UPDATE

Following the recent fans survey to garner supporter opinion on the matchday experience at Huish Park, the results are continuing to be analysed and discussed amongst the Executive at the Football Club.

 

With over 550 responses to the survey, the Club are also looking to liaise with the Glovers Trust regarding the survey it conducted independently in order to further gauge fan opinion.

 

Whilst the Club acknowledges the key areas marked for improvement in the survey, solutions and potential alternatives are still being looked into with changes and improvements to be announced shortly.

 

CHRISTMAS REDUCTION FOR GLOVERS AWAY KIT

The Glovers 2016/17 away kit has been reduced across all ages in time for the festive period, with an adult away shirt falling from £40 to £30. 
A junior away shirt is also priced at £20 after a reduction of £10, whilst baby and toddler kits are reduced from £35 to £25. 
The shop is open from 10-4 Monday to Friday and 10-5 on home matchdays.

BASSETT RE-JOINS DORCHESTER TOWN ON LOAN

The 18-year-old made four appearances for the Magpies during a loan spell in September and early October, with Bassett also spending time away with the Northern Ireland Under-19 squad during that time. 
Bassett, who impressed during his first spell at the club, will be available for selection for Dorchester’s FA Trophy match against Barnstaple Town at the Avenue on Saturday, alongside fellow Yeovil-loanee Joe Lea. 
Former Glovers fans’ favourite Nick Crittenden will be working with the Town duo, in his role as player/assistant manager at Dorchester. 

GLOVERS GET PEDALLING FOR BBC CHILDREN IN NEED

Starting earlier this month, Cineworld staff and its customers have been encouraged to help cycle the distance between all Cineworld cinemas across the UK.
To achieve this, Cineworld has installed static bikes at all of its cinemas, inviting customers to get on the bikes and help reach this goal as well as making a donation in the process with all proceeds going to BBC Children in Need.
After donating match tickets and a signed ball for auction, Darren Way was joined by assistant manager Terry Skiverton, goalkeeper coach Sam Shulberg as well Francois Zoko, Ben Whitfield, Joe Lea and Josh Ezewele from Town’s first team to put in some miles for Cineworld’s challenge. 

PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v GRIMSBY TOWN

The Glovers return to Huish Park this weekend looking to continue their surge towards the play-off spots having won their last three matches. 
Coupled with their winning run, Town are unbeaten in their last three outings at Huish Park picking up the maximum nine points scoring six goals in the process, conceding just two. 
With Yeovil also going 360 minutes without conceding a goal, the Glovers will be determined to continue their ascension of the Sky Bet League Two table against the Mariners. 
Grimsby travel to Somerset under the temporary charge of Dave Moore after Paul Hurst joined League One outfit Shrewsbury Town earlier in the week. 
Hurst left Grimsby one place outside the play-offs in eighth, continuing the good form which saw them promoted from the National League last season via the play-offs, returning the club to the Football League for the first time in six years.
The Mariners have picked up 10 points from their last six matches in League Two, notably recording away wins at both Mansfield Town and Cambridge United. 
The Lincolnshire outfit have been more effective away from Blundell Park so far this season, picking up 11 points on their travels compared to nine points at home. 
Grimsby will be searching for their fourth win on the road when they visit Huish Park on Saturday, and Omar Bogle – who sits second in the goal-scoring standings with nine goals – will be their most likely source of punishment. 
Head-to-head
The two clubs have only met on two occasions previously, with both fixtures coming in the 2004/05 League Two campaign. 
The Glovers saw off the Mariners 2-1 at Huish Park thanks to strikes from Lee Johnson and Bartosz Tarachulski, before being on the wrong end of the same scoreline at Blundell park in the return fixture despite Arron Davies opening the scoring on the day. 
Referee
Brendan Malone (Wiltshire) will take charge of Saturday’s meeting at Huish Park, having officiated a number of Town’s matches over the years.
The Glovers were last officiated by Mr. Malone in October 2015 when Town went down 2-0 at Notts County. The Wiltshire-based referee also took charge of Yeovil’s home match against Bristol Rovers at the start of the season, sending off Matty Dolan for two bookable offences which left little complaint. 
Saturday’s meeting will be Mr. Malone’s 15th game of the season, having so far awarded 47 yellow cards and just two red. 
Mr. Malone will be assisted by Kevin Morris (Herefordshire) and Robert Dabbs (Dorset) at Huish Park, with Andrew Laver (Hampshire) taking on the role of fourth official.

LOAN WATCH: LEA COMPLETES 90 MINUTES FOR MAGPIES

The 18-year-old made his third straight start for the Magpies but couldn’t stop the Dorset outfit conceding an 88th minute goal which saw Dorchester come away from Arbour Park with a 2-1 defeat.
Lea has been involved in every match since arriving on a month’s loan from Huish Park, operating in his preferred midfield position for the Magpies. 
The midfielder will now be available for selection for Dorchester’s FA Trophy clash with Barnstaple Town at the Avenue on Saturday.

GLOVERS TO WEAR POPPY SHIRTS THIS WEEKEND

DOLAN SEES ‘NO LIMITS’ FOR GLOVERS SQUAD

The Town midfielder scored a 25-yard free-kick to ensure Darren Way’s side came away from Gresty Road with all three points on Saturday, and said afterwards the squad are focused on reaching the higher echelons of the division.
“It’s brilliant, the Gaffer pulled us and said ‘look, if you believe in yourselves because I believe in you and we’re all believing in each other, there’s no limits as to what we can do as a team’. 
“We’ve got to keep pressing and team spirit can win games and we’ve got a great team spirit so we’ve got to keep pressing on and pressing up the table.”
Yeovil have now won three consecutive matches in League Two whilst keeping a cleansheet in their last four fixtures. 
Grimsby Town are next to visit Huish Park with the Glovers winning each of their last three outings at home, where Way’s side will be aiming to bridge the current one-point gap to the play-offs. 
With Town sat fourth in the League Two form table for the last six matches having taken 12 points, Dolan is complimentary of the unity currently at the club. 
“From the Gaffer’s staff, staff at the ground, the chairman, the board – everyone’s pulling in the right direction, everyone wants to go that way. 
The fans were great (on Saturday) and didn’t shut up all game – everyone is going in the right direction and that’s what we want as a Football Club.”

Lea will now be part of the Dorchester squad to travel to Slough Town on Tuesday, looking to make it three matches without defeat

WAY HAILS 1-0 WINS AS NO FLUKE

The Glovers rose to within one point of the play-offs on Saturday after coming away from Crewe Alexandra with three points courtesy of Matty Dolan’s second half strike.
A 1-0 win is no oddity for Town, who have won nine of their last 12 matches by that exact scoreline, something Way is not surprised at. 
“Tactically, the way the lads managed the game (against Crewe) – they frustrated their players, their supporters – having said that they had one or two chances and on another day they could’ve gone in but the team is very strong and very resilient and I think these 1-0 wins are no fluke. 
“The way the players work the system; it’s well drilled, it’s well organised and is a good system that works. I don’t know how many (1-0 wins) we had when I took over, I think it was nine, so it’s very organised. I want everyone to really believe now that we can push to the play-offs and see what happens.”
After a fifth win in seven matches and a fourth consecutive cleansheet, Way is still cautious of complacency whilst still fuelling the increasing belief around Huish Park. 
“I said we weren’t going to win the league off of last week’s performance – that’s why I mentioned complacency – and we’re not going to win the league on this performance but what we have got is a consistent group of players that are turning up every week and putting in real good performances and getting results.
“That’s the main thing, football is all about winning – as a football manager you keep your job if you win – and we’re building something special at the Football Club and the players have bought into that and I feel very proud to be Yeovil Town manager.”
Over 170 Yeovil fans made the trip to Cheshire on Saturday to support the Glovers making noise throughout the League Two fixture.
Having shared the ecstasy alongside the Town players at full-time, Way is pleased fans can now begin to believe. 
“I think you could see the celebrations at the end and the way they sang throughout the game, they had a great time and they’ve been very supportive to all the players and very supportive of me as a manager.
 “It’s so pleasing because them witnessing that today they can start believing and they deserve it.”

REPORT: CREWE ALEXANDRA 0-1 YEOVIL TOWN

After a goalless opening 45 minutes, the Glovers dominated proceedings in the second half and took the lead just past the hour mark courtesy of a stunning Matty Dolan free-kick. 
Crewe hit the bar twice on either side of half-time through Chris Dagnall, but couldn’t find a way past a resolute Town who continue their march up the League Two table with a fifth win in seven games.
Darren Way stuck with the starting eleven which made it three consecutive wins at Huish Park last weekend with a 1-0 win over Newport County, making just one change on the bench with Liam Shephard fit and able to return to the squad in place of Josh Ezewele.
On a sunny Cheshire afternoon, it was the hosts who registered the first meaningful attempt on goal when Chris Dagnall found space from a Crewe corner to force Krysiak into a smart block from the angle, as the Railwaymen enjoyed a succession of corners inside the opening five minutes.
Town’s most likely outlet in the opening exchanges looked to be Otis Khan, who troubled his opposite man on a number of occasions in the opening quarter of an hour.
Despite that, George Cooper header over the bar from Dagnall’s knockdown before Alex Kiwomya’s through ball found captain Ryan Lowe, but Krysiak was quick off of his line to bravely jump at the striker’s feet and smother the danger. 
In an end-to-end first period the Glovers almost took the lead on 21 minutes. Tahvon Campbell capitalised on a misplaced backpass to turn Harry Davis just inside the box, before seeing a shot from the angle ripple the side netting. 
That chance sparked an immediate response from the Railwaymen as Lowe again managed to find space through on goal but Town’s Polish ‘keeper was on hand once again to save, this time with his feet.
As the game drew towards half-time Steve Davis’ side finally beat Krysiak but were then left frustrated by the crossbar after Dagnall drove at the back four before trying an effort from the edge of the box.
Alex Lawless forced Ben Garratt into a relatively routine save on the stroke of half-time with a low drive from 25 yards, ending a first period full of attacking intent from both sides.
Refreshed from the break Yeovil immediately caused havoc in the final third, forcing Garratt into a smart save after 49 minutes.
Campbell swivelled and fired at goal from 25 yards with a nasty bounce in front of the Crewe ‘keeper forcing him into to tip it around the post for a corner. 
Way’s side continued their bright start to the second half with Dawson and Lawless moving the ball around effectively in midfield, before Khan curled an effort just wide of the target after 53 minutes. 
Growing in confidence, Town introduced top scorer Tom Eaves just before the hour mark in place of Campbell and minutes later the visitors took the lead.
Ryan Hedges was brought down 25 yards from goal in a central position and from the resulting free-kick Matty Dolan found the bottom right-hand corner with a pinpoint strike which left Garratt with no chance.
On a high after taking the lead, Town almost added a second three minutes later when Kevin Dawson tried a low drive from 20 yards, but the Irishman’s strike skipped just wide of the target. 
The Glovers continued to dominate proceedings after taking the lead, threatening in the final third whilst frustrating the Railwaymen with a dogged defensive display at the other end. 
With the home crowd growing in displeasure Dagnall hit the bar for a second time after 78 minutes, with the striker’s looping header from substitute Callum Ainley’s cross coming back off the woodwork. 
The Railwaymen committed men forward late on but it was Town who almost added a second when substitute Francois Zoko prodded a Dolan free-kick goalwards inside the final 10 minutes. 
Dolan’s strike was worthy of winning any match and with Crewe unable to mount a meaningful response, the midfielder’s effort was enough for Yeovil to return to Somerset with all three points for a third consecutive match in League Two, continuing the Glovers rise up the table. 
Crewe Alexandra: Garratt; Turton, Davis, Guthrie, Bakayogo; Cooper, Bingham (Jones 58’), Hollands (Ainley 74’), Kiwomya; Lowe, Dagnall.
Bookings: Dagnall 2’
Subs not used: Richards, Nugent, Udoh, Ng, Lowery.
Yeovil Town: Krysiak; Mugabi, Ward, Lacey, Smith; Dawson, Lawless, Dolan; Hedges, Campbell (Eaves 59’), Khan (Zoko 75’).
Bookings: Khan 25’
Subs not used: Maddison, Dickson, Shephard, Whitfield, McLeod. 

PREVIEW: CREWE ALEXANDRA v YEOVIL TOWN

The Glovers come into the match having won four of their last six League Two matches, including three consecutive home victories at Huish Park. 
A tally of 12 points from a maximum of 18 sees Town sit fourth in the current form table, translating to 15th in the league standings just three points off of the play-offs. 
Yeovil come into the match off the back of two 1-0 wins at Huish Park, seeing off Wycombe Wanderers and Newport County in consecutive weeks. 
Meanwhile, Crewe return to Gresty Road for the first time since the start of October having spent the last two league matches on the road. Steve Davis’ side are without a league win in the last five matches however, drawing on four occasions and losing once. 
Having drawn their last three matches, the Railwaymen have slid slightly down the table to eighth, lying outside of the play-offs on goal difference. 
Despite their slight wobble, Alexandra are unbeaten at home this season claiming victories against Doncaster Rovers and Exeter City, whilst sharing the spoils with Blackpool and Mansfield Town. 
Crewe also have two familiar faces for Yeovil supporters, with defender Ben Nugent – who played 23 times for Town during the 2014/15 season – and Zoumana Bakayogo – who enjoyed just a single appearance for the Glovers in 2014 – both contracted at the Cheshire club.
Head-to-head
Having met competitively on 10 occasions, Yeovil edge the head-to-head battle with five wins to Crewe’s four. 
The Railwaymen are unbeaten in the last two meetings between the two clubs, drawing 1-1 at Huish Park in 2014 before claiming a 1-0 win at home thanks to a Nicky Ajose strike in the reverse fixture. 
Town’s last win against Crewe came in April 2013 when Joe Edwards’ strike inside the first minute was enough to earn victory at Huish Park, having already won the reverse fixture by the same scoreline courtesy of a Byron Webster goal. 
Glovers manager Darren Way scored the winning goal between the two sides in October 2008 with a late strike, as the Somerset outfit won 3-2 thanks to goals from Way and Danny Schofield (x2). 
Despite Saturday’s fixture being the eleventh meeting between the two sides, it will be the first to be competed at League Two level, with all 10 existing matches featuring in League One. 
Referee
Christopher Starginson (Staffordshire) will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s match at Gresty Road. 
The fixture will be Mr. Starginson’s 12th game of the season, having so far awarded 34 yellow and two red cards. Most recently he was in action in midweek for the Checkatrade Trophy meeting between Exeter City and Chelsea Under-23’s where he awarded four yellow cards. 
Mr. Starginson took charge of a Yeovil match on two occasions last season, officiating the 3-2 loss at home to Cambridge United (awarding four yellow cards) and the 1-0 win against Stevenage in the FA Cup (awarding two yellow cards) in what was Way’s first game in interim charge of the Glovers.
On Saturday Mr. Starginson will be assisted by Natalie Aspinall (Lancashire) and Wade Smith (Cheshire) with Paul Marsden (Lancashire) taking on the role of fourth official.

TEAM NEWS AHEAD OF TOWN’S TRIP TO CREWE ALEXANDRA

The Swansea loanee has missed the last three matches through injury, but Way confirmed the 21-year-old is likely to be back in contention for selection.
“Sheps (Liam Shephard) has trained all week so he’s good; we’re waiting on Butch (Matt Butcher) as to whether he’ll be available to play.”
Last weekend saw the Glovers welcome back Francois Zoko, Tom Eaves and Ryan Dickson after injury and illness, something which has pleased the Town manager.
“The squad is the strongest I’ve had since I’ve been a manager which helped on helped on Saturday, to have the firepower to change dynamics of the game. 
“The Players respect each other and know that because we’re winning they’re going to have to work harder to get their place back in the team. No player within this group don’t want us to win though, which is a good thing for us to have.”

WAY WARNING OF COMPLACENCY AFTER FOUR WINS FROM SIX

The Glovers saw off Newport County 1-0 at Huish Park last weekend to confirm back-to-back wins and make it three straight home victories, propelling Town to within three points of the play-offs. 
With Yeovil visiting eighth-placed Crewe Alexandra this weekend, Way is not getting carried away with his side’s run of form. 
“We talked about momentum last week and how we’ve got targets we want to hit and we’re on course, certainly after the home games we’ve had. 
“But we’ve talked about complacency now, it’s important the group stay strong. We talked about being patient with the players because we’ve got a young group which is growing stronger together every day.”
Only Doncaster Rovers, Carlisle United and Plymouth Argyle have picked up more points than Yeovil in the last six games, but Way is cautious of losing sight of the targets set by the squad ahead of the season. 
“It’s important we don’t become complacent, we don’t think we’re going to win the league because of the last two results but we’ve got a group of players with group targets and we’re reaching them. 
“We showed them the table – it’s up on the wall actually – from last year and we were in the bottom two and I don’t think we got a result for nine games now. 
“So what I’ve tried to do is build momentum and I’ll be disappointed if we go on a run of nine defeats now that’s for sure.”

EVER-PRESENT DOLAN OUT FOR MORE OF THE SAME

The 23-year-old has been an integral part of Darren Way’s side in the opening months of the campaign, supplying two assists and scoring twice already. 
Having won back-to-back Sky Bet League Two fixtures at Huish Park, Dolan is focused on maintaining the momentum away from Somerset. 
“Another win on Saturday and we’ll get up near the play-off spots and everything is looking up,” he said. “We looked at where we were last year and we’ve made an improvement so, as I say, we’ve got to keep looking forward and aim as high as we can get.”
Having already picked up both the August and September ‘Goal of the Month’ accolades including the strike from inside his own half against Walsall in the EFL Cup, Dolan is keen to continue his consistent level of performance so far this season.
“I haven’t missed a minute yet so I want to keep performing, that’s what I’m here to do. It’s easy when you’re in a winning team and environment – the Gaffer makes it a great place to be around and everybody on the shop floor and around the Football Club makes it an enjoyable place to be. 
“I want to keep going out there, enjoying my football week-in, week-out and hopefully not get any injuries and keep performing.”
The Glovers visit eighth-placed Crewe Alexandra on Saturday and the Town midfielder is hopeful recent home form can be transported to Cheshire. 
“We’ve won our last two and four in the last six, which is good form really. We’ve had a few blips – like Plymouth – but we’ve always bounced back and we’ve got three home wins on the spin now. 
We’ve got to keep the momentum going and keep looking forward and being positive. Our away form is massive, we’ve won our home games and Huish is turning into the fortress we need so if we can start picking up points on the road it bodes well for us as a club.”

TOWN TO HOST SOLIHULL MOORS IN EMIRATES FA CUP

With all ties to be played over the weekend of November 5th, Yeovil will line up against the National League outfit who’ve qualified for the First Round of the competition for the first time in their history. 
Speaking after the draw, Darren Way was pleased to begin Town’s cup campaign at Huish Park. 
“It’s good to have a home tie in the FA Cup which is a competition we consider very special as a Football Club; we look forward to getting going.”
The Moors enjoyed promotion from National League North last season and currently sit mid-table in the National League.
Despite sitting a step higher in the English footballing pyramid, Way is cautious of the challenge ahead. 
“Some of my most difficult matches as a player for Yeovil came in the FA Cup so it’s a challenge the players will look forward to. 
“We’ve enjoyed some fantastic FA Cup experiences throughout our history, so we’re eager to begin our campaign in the competition this season.”
Ticket prices and details will follow in due course. 

TOWN SET TO LEARN FA CUP FATE

Assigned to ball number 48, the draw will take place at 7pm on both BT Sport and BBC Two.
In the hat for the First Round proper are all League One and League Two teams as well as a number of non-league outfits who are still left in the competition. 
Among them are fellow Somerset club Taunton Town, who drew 0-0 with Hemel Hempstead at the weekend to force a replay and book their place in the draw. 
National League side Eastleigh were amongst the biggest winners as they saw off North Leigh 6-0, whilst Weymouth slumped to a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Kidderminster. 
A full list of possible opponents for Town can be found here.

LOAN WATCH: BASSETT AND LEA BOTH IN ACTION FOR THE MAGPIES

Bassett, who returned to the Dorset club this week after returning from international duty, went straight back into the starting eleven whilst Lea’s paperwork was completed in time for the 18-year-old to be a part of the matchday squad. 
In a tight affair, Bassett completed 90 minutes for the Mapgies whilst Lea was introduced with a little over 20 minutes remaining to make his debut. 
Despite a late goal from Dorchester, they were unable to overturn a 2-0 deficit and slumped to a narrow defeat in Bedfordshire. 

WAY OUT TO BUILD ON ‘POWERFUL’ BELIEF IN DRESSING ROOM

Town saw off Newport County on Saturday thanks to Tom Eaves’ strike 10 minutes from time, building on the 1-0 win against Wycombe Wanderers at Huish Park a fortnight ago. 
After victory, Way was delighted for his players whose efforts helped boost the Glovers to 15th in League Two. 
“The players deserve it, they took a real ownership and responsibility this week as to the targets and goals we’re looking to aim for and I think we reached them today – it’s good.
“We’ve created real positivity that can carry some momentum because I don’t think we’ve had that for a long time and it just gives the players belief that we can push to the top half of the table.”
Yeovil travel to Crewe Alexandra next looking to win three matches in a row for the first time since March, when Town went on to win four matches on the bounce and all but secure their Football League status. 
Having engineered last season’s revival, Way believes the positivity is beginning to take effect at Huish Park.
“I’m very proud to be manager of this Football Club,” said the 36-year-old. “The players are working extremely hard behind the scenes and there’s a real belief in the dressing room – it feels quite powerful.
“We’re trying to create a winning culture within our dressing room, a good environment to be in and a place where players want to come and work, and work very hard. That’s what we’ve got at the moment.”
Ticket details for Town’s trip to Crewe can be found here, as well as travel plans from the Green and White Supporters Club.

REPORT: YEOVIL TOWN 1-0 NEWPORT COUNTY

In a game harnessed by harsh conditions, Town took the lead inside the final ten minutes when Ryan Hedges’ low cross was turned into the net by a combination of Tom Eaves and County defender Dan Butler, with the Glovers striker credited with his sixth goal of the season.
Victory continues the Glovers ascent up the League Two table, making it six goals scored and just two conceded in the last three matches in Somerset, as well as making it back-to-back wins as Yeovil move to within three points of the play-offs.
Darren Way named an unchanged starting eleven, sticking with the side which picked up a 1-0 win last time out against Wycombe Wanderers at Huish Park. 
There were changes on the bench however, with Ryan Dickson, Tom Eaves and Francois Zoko all returning to the squad in place of Omar Sowunmi, Joe Lea (who joined Dorchester Town on loan earlier on Saturday) and Kyle Copp. 
As the two teams emerged from the tunnel a consistent drizzle began to fall from the heavens, but it didn’t dampen a lively start to proceedings. 
Inside the opening 10 minutes Town almost took the lead when Hedges’ deflected cross fell to Otis Khan in the box, with the Town wide man controlling and turning in one movement before seeing his deflected shot fall inches wide of the target with County ‘keeper Joe Day beaten.
The visitors, being managed by Graham Westley for the first time, responded with a chance of their own just minutes later. 
Jennison Myrie-Williams’ deep cross fell to Butler at the back post, but the left-back’s shot from the angle was well saved by the legs of Artur Krysiak in the Yeovil goal.
Looking a threat from long throw-ins and corners, Jon Parkin had two efforts in quick succession blocked well by Yeovil from set-plays, before the hosts took control of proceedings.
Both widemen Hedges and Khan saw plenty of the ball in the opening 45 minutes, causing Newport full-backs Jazzi Barnum-Bobb and Butler plenty of problems. 
Although unable to force Day into action, Alex Lawless curled an effort wide of the target from just inside the box after good build-up from Khan and Tahvon Campbell, before the Glovers enjoyed a flurry of corners in the minutes leading to half-time. 
As the rain turned from drizzle to downpour Newport had to demonstrate their defensive resoluteness to keep out Town, with the referee’s half-time whistle coupled with worsening conditions in Somerset. 
The two teams were welcomed back onto the pitch by the same relentless rain which led to a scrappy start to the second half. 
With chances at a premium in the first period it was the Exiles who had opportunities early after the restart. 
Myrie-Williams dragged an effort from inside the box horribly wide of the target after 53 minutes, before captain Scot Bennett headed over the bar from six yards three minutes later. 
County’s early opportunities led to a reaction from Way, who introduced top scorer Tom Eaves from the bench in place of Campbell up front. 
Just past the hour mark Town had their first chance of the half when Nathan Smith’s cross from the left had to be acrobatically palmed over the bar by Day with the ball heading for the top corner.
With conditions worsening at Huish Park both sides continued to search for an opening goal, and County substitute Jordan Green came close to doing so after 68 minutes when his low effort from range skipped off the surface and zipped narrowly wide of the post.
In search of finding a way to make it three consecutive home wins, Zoko took the field in place of Khan with a little over a quarter of an hour remaining, and the Glovers took the lead just five minutes later. 
Hedges twisted and turned inside the Newport box before firing a fierce low ball across goal, which nestled in the corner of the goal after a combination of Eaves and Butler forced the ball over the line.
As the game entered stoppage time it could’ve been 2-0 when Zoko raced through on goal after Dolan and Hedges combined to release the striker, but the Ivorian’s effort was well saved by the advancing Day. 
Zoko had a second attempt saved by Day in the dying embers of the match, as Yeovil looked the more likely to score the match’s second goal. 
As the sun began to shine through on Huish Park referee Dean Whitestone called time on proceedings to confirm a third straight home victory for the Glovers and back-to-back wins in Sky Bet League Two which moves Way’s side to within three points of the play-offs. 
Yeovil Town: Krysiak; Mugabi, Ward, Lacey, Smith; Dawson, Lawless, Dolan; Hedges (Whitfield 90’), Campbell (Eaves 56’), Khan (Zoko 76’).
Bookings:
Subs not used: Maddison, Dickson, Ezewele, McLeod.

LEA JOINS MAGPIES ON LOAN

The 18-year-old has made two appearances for the Glovers this season, being handed his debut at Goodison Park against Everton in Round Two of the EFL Cup in August, before coming off the bench against Portsmouth in the Checkatrade Trophy fixture at Huish Park. 
Lea joined Town in the summer having graduated through Southampton’s academy, signing a one-year contract. 
The midfielder becomes the second player to join the Magpies on loan this season, with Ollie Bassett spending time on loan at the Avenue last month prior to leaving on international duty with the Northern Ireland Under-19 squad. 
Lea will now link up with former Yeovil fans’ favourite Nick Crittenden, who is player/assistant manager for the Dorset club. 
Everyone at Yeovil Town Football Club wishes Joe all the best during his time at The Avenue. 

PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v NEWPORT COUNTY

The Glovers are gunning for a third straight win in front of their home support, having won their last two outings in Somerset against Cheltenham Town and Wycombe Wanderers. 
A convincing 4-2 win against the Robins was followed up last weekend with a 1-0 victory over the Chairboys in front of a jubilant home support. 
Darren Way has revealed a ‘strong’ squad is available for selection, with a number of players likely to return from injury. 
Newport come in to the match at the foot of the table, having picked up just seven points from their opening 10 games. 
Their disappointing start led to the dismissal of manager Warren Feeney, with the experienced Graham Westley taking charge of County for the first time this weekend against Town. 
The Exiles picked up a point following a 0-0 draw at Colchester United last weekend, picking up just their second point on the road this season having drawn with Hartlepool United and lost to Grimsby Town, Doncaster Rovers, Plymouth Argyle and Luton Town. 
Former Glovers Ben Tozer and Jack Compton are also likely to be a part of Westley’s squad, making their return to Somerset having departed in the summer. 
Head-to-head
The two sides have met only twice in competitive competition, with both fixtures coming in League Two last season. 
Town came away from Rodney Parade with a point in November following a 0-0 draw, before Compton notched the only goal for Town in the reverse fixture in April as Yeovil picked up all three points on the way to survival. 
Albeit after only two matches, Yeovil remain unbeaten against Newport in competitive competition. 
Referee
Dean Whitestone (Northamptonshire) will be the man in charge on Saturday, officiating what will be his 14th match of the season. 
Mr Whitestone is yet to produce a red card this season but has issued 28 yellow cards, including four last time out in Morecambe’s 2-1 win at Notts County. 
Mr Whitestone has taken charge of Town’s matches on a number of occasions, officiating the Football League trophy match against Gillingham in November 2015 which resulted in Yeovil winning on penalties with just one yellow card issued. 
Timothy Wood (Gloucestershire) and Louis Marks (Hampshire) will act as Mr Whitestone’s assistants, with John Flynn (Oxfordshire) named as fourth official.

FUNERAL DETAILS FOR GERRY GOW AND MINUTE’S APPLAUSE

The 64-year-old sadly passed away earlier this week after suffering from cancer, with the service to be held on Friday 4th November at Easton Methodist Church in Portland, Dorset. 
Starting at 2 o’clock, there will then be a short ceremony at Weymouth Crematorium at 3.15pm leading to the wake at South Portland Working Men’s Conservative Club – all who knew Gerry are welcome to attend and pay their respects.
There will also be a minute’s applause prior to kick-off on Saturday at Huish Park to pay respect to the former Yeovil manager who guided the Club through a difficult spell in its history.

WARD OUT TO HELP CONTINUE WINNING RUN AT HUISH PARK

Yeovil have won back-to-back games at home thanks to victories against Cheltenham Town and Wycombe Wanderers, scoring five goals and conceding just two. 
Ward was on the scoresheet against Cheltenham and has been a fundamental part of the side since returning from a long-term knee injury last month. 
Now back in the side with the captain’s armband, the 38-year-old is keen to continue the run of wins at Huish Park this weekend.
“We’ve spoke about making this place a fortress, a very difficult place for teams to come and pick up points. Last weekend wasn’t the prettiest of games but it was important we got the three points which we did.
“We’re working hard to build momentum which we need,” said Ward. “We need to take advantage of these moments when they come along – we’ve had a good week so far, working hard to make sure it happens on Saturday.”
Having completed 90 minutes in the last two fixtures, Ward is confident his injury problems are a thing of the past.
"I’m very relaxed about it, I’m sticking to protocol from the medical side of things. It’s one of them injuries where you have to be sensible with it.
“To come in and play 90 in the last two is fantastic and ahead of schedule, hopefully I can do it again on Saturday. I’ve hardly been injured in my career so it’s new to me at 38 which sounds crazy. 
“I’ve been doing as I’m told and working hard again as I always do to continue as long as I can.”

YEOVIL TOWN VISITED BY NICKELODEON

The Glovers duo were joined by presenter Roman Kemp, answering questions under the knowledge that if their answers didn’t match, then a cream pie to the face would result!
The feature was part of a day of filming at Huish Park for the Nick Kicks programme which is part of the Nickelodeon network. 
Izale McLeod and Jonny Maddison also took part in the ‘clean sheet’ challenge, which saw ‘keeper Maddison aiming to keep out a number of muddy balls fired at goal by McLeod. 
The features will be aired on television in the coming weeks – which we’ll let you know about.

FORMER YEOVIL MANAGER GERRY GOW PASSES AWAY

Gerry was best known as a player for his time at Bristol City and Manchester City, but also enjoyed spells with Burnley and Rotherham United. 
Moving in to management, Gerry arrived at Yeovil Town in 1984 bringing with him a number of former Bristol City players as he looked to turn around fortunes at the Somerset club. 
Gow also brought cricket legend Ian Botham to the old Huish mid-way through the season, something which earned Yeovil media attention from across the country. 
After relegation, Gerry almost guided Town back into what is now the National League missing out by just four points in the 1985/86 season, before resigning for personal reasons early in 1987. 
The 1985/86 campaign will be remembered by many long-term Glovers fans, with the team scoring 92 goals and collecting 91 points in total. 
After a short battle with cancer, Gerry passed away in the early hours of Monday morning. 
Everybody at Huish Park offers their sincere condolences to Gerry’s family.

REPORT: YEOVIL TOWN v. WYCOMBE WANDERERS

The Glovers kept a second consecutive clean sheet to see of the Buckinghamshire outfit and end a run of two defeats in Sky Bet League Two.
After a relatively timid start to proceedings, the Glovers went close through Nathan Smith and Alex Lacey, before Ryan Hedges broke the deadlock after 36 minutes.
Alex Lawless’ thundering effort from outside the box could only be tipped onto the post, with Hedges in the right place at the right time to net his second goal of the season. 
Darren Way made three changes from the side which drew 0-0 before losing on penalties to Bristol Rovers in the Checkatrade Trophy in mid-week, re-introducing Artur Krysiak between the sticks for Jonny Maddison, Kevin Dawson for Ben Whitfield and captain Darren Ward in place of the ill Ryan Dickson. 
Town were also left without Liam Shephard, Matt Butcher, Tom Eaves and Francois Zoko (all through injury), with young attacker Ollie Bassett away on international duty with the Northern Ireland Under-19 squad.
Still searching for their first win on the road this season, Wycombe frustrated Town in the opening exchanges of the first half by putting numbers behind the ball and stifling the Glovers’ attack. 
The Chairboys’ outlook led to a quickly forgettable opening 20 minutes, before left-back Smith tested the reflexes of travelling ‘keeper Jamal Blackman. 
Smith’s low shot after cutting inside from the left was well palmed away by the Wanderers stopper, with the resulting corner – which was initially missed by Blackman – fortuitously falling into his arms after cannoning off of Smith. 
Set-pieces continued to be Yeovil’s most dangerous outlet as Lacey headed a Matty Dolan corner just over the bar after 32 minutes, as Town ramped up the pressure on Gareth Ainsworth’s side. 
Wycombe then spurned their best chance of the half when Garry Thompson sprung the offside trap, only to scuff an effort wide of the target when under pressure from Lacey.
The pressure told just four minutes later however, as Yeovil broke a resilient Wycombe defence to take the lead. 
Lawless’ fierce strike from 25 yards was brilliantly tipped onto the post by Blackman at full-stretch, but Hedges had followed in well to tap in the rebound from close range. 
Boosted by taking the lead, Yeovil almost added a second before the break when Otis Khan did well to jink his way to the by-line, with his low cross narrowly evading Tahvon Campbell and Hedges in the middle. 
Neither side made changes during the interval and it was Way’s side who continued to press after the restart. 
Khan continued to cause Michael Harriman a headache down Wycombe’s right flank, with Dolan pulling the strings efficiently in midfield for the hosts.
Unable to trouble Artur Krysiak, Wycombe opted for a different outlet just past the hour mark when the physicality of Adebayo Akinfenwa was introduced up front in place of Thompson. 
And it was Akinfenwa’s hold-up play inside the Glovers half that led to Danny Rowe placing a side-footed effort wide of Krysiak’s goal, before Joe Jacobson fired a 25-yard free-kick over the bar after 74 minutes.
Yeovil still looked a threat going forward and came close to adding a second inside the final ten minute.
Bevis Mugabi’s inch-perfect pass down the flank found Hedges who, after twisting and turning, found Dolan at the back post which the Town midfielder was unable to turn on target.
Wycombe through caution to the wind in the closing stages and bombarded the Yeovil box with high balls, but Way’s side stood the test to claim a second win in a row at home and end a run of two defeats in League Two. 
Yeovil Town: Krysiak; Mugabi, Ward, Lacey, Smith; Dawson, Lawless, Dolan; Hedges, Campbell, Khan (Whitfield 86’). 
Bookings:
Subs not used: Maddison, Ezewele, Copp, Lea, Sowunmi, McLeod. 
Wycombe Wanderers: Blackman; Harriman, Stewart, Pierre, Jacobson (Freeman 82’); Thompson (Akinfenwa 65’), Rowe, Gape (Bloomfield 71’), Wood; Cowan-Hall, Hayes.

PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v. WYCOMBE WANDERERS

Despite consecutive defeats away from home in League Two, the Glovers will be buoyed by taking a point from a trip to Bristol Rovers in midweek in the Checkatrade Trophy. 
Darren Way’s side drew 0-0 with the League One outfit despite going down to ten-men, edging Town closer to qualification from the group stage.
Having enjoyed a 4-2 win last time out at Huish Park against Cheltenham Town, Yeovil will be hoping for a repeat performance against a Wycombe side who are yet to win away from home in the league. 
The Chairboys do come into the match after winning their last three games, all of which came at Adams Park. 
Gareth Ainsworth’s side saw off Crewe Alexandra 5-1 a fortnight ago, before sending Exeter City back to Devon empty handed last weekend with a 1-0 win. 
Also in Checkatrade Trophy action in midweek, Wanderers completed a hat-trick of home wins with a 3-0 demolition of West Ham United’s Under-21’s. 
However, Wycombe have picked up just a single point away from home in League Two, drawing 0-0 with Blackpool back in August. 
Defeats Luton Town, Portsmouth and Carlisle United have followed, with a 3-0 win over a much-changed Northampton Town in the Checkatrade Trophy sandwiched in-between. 
Head-to-head
The Glovers enter the match dominating the head-to-head record, losing just once in nine competitive meetings. 
The Chairboys’ sole win came last season at Huish Park when Luke O’Nien’s strike 20 minutes from time earnt the visitors all three points, with a 0-0 draw the result of the reverse fixture at Adams Park.
Prior to that, Town have won the last five meetings, most notably recording high scoring wins during the 2009/10 season with a 4-0 win at Huish Park (Kieran Murtagh, Jean-Paul Kalala, Jon Obika, Sam Williams) and 4-1 win at Wycombe (Dean Bowditch x2, Andy Welsh, Owain Tudur-Jones). 
Referee
Lee Probert (Wiltshire) will be the man in the middle on Saturday, having taken charge of matches throughout all four divisions. 
In May 2014, Mr Probert was in charge of the FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Hull City at Wembley, which the Gunners won 3-2 after extra-time. 
So far this season, Mr Probert has officiated 10 matches across League One, League Two, the EFL Cup and Checkatrade Trophy, issuing just one red card and 18 yellows in the process.
In his last two matches – Walsall v. Milwall in League One and Cheltenham v. Everton U23 in the Checkatrade Trophy – he’s failed to issue a single card. 
Mr Probert will be assisted by Adam Bromley (Devon) and Michael Webb (Surrey), with Adam Nunn (Wiltshire) acting as fourth official.

WAY OUT TO REBUILD FORTUNES AT HUISH PARK

After retaining Yeovil Town’s Football League status last season, Darren Way is focused on becoming the catalyst to propel the Glovers back up to the higher echelons of the English footballing pyramid.  

Having spent 16 years at Huish Park as a player, coach and now manager, the 36-year-old has started his first full-season as manager.

 

After bringing in 14 players in the summer, Town have recorded 10 points from their opening 11 matches with a target – set by the players – of finishing mid-table in Sky Bet League Two.

 

With Way committed to the Club for the next three years, the former fans’ favourite is determined to bring success back to Huish Park.

 

"The League Two level has gone up. Every game you play in now the energy and commitment that goes into it is high.

 

"We’ve got a lot of positives – we’ve got the academy and the ladies football – but I’m afraid to say it’s going to take time to reach the dizzying heights of where we were before.

 

"I’ve had one pre-season and now we’re starting on a journey to build a football club back up again.

 

"That’s not going to happen overnight. We’ve had two managers that have tried to do it before me and couldn’t.

 

"I know the energy, work and commitment that the staff are putting in behind the scenes makes me proud to come in every day and to be manager."

 

Way’s targets are part of the Club’s ambition to return to the higher levels of the Football League, but the Gaffer is keen to stress the importance of patience.

 

"I’m a supporter of Chelsea. I want them to win the league every year but they don’t necessarily do that. And they’ve got millions of pounds to spend," Way said.

 

"Man United supporters want their team to win every week and they don’t do that. So you have to be realistic as to where we are as a football club.”

REPORT: YEOVIL TOWN v. BRISTOL ROVERS

Neither side were able to break the deadlock in normal time with Jonny Maddison producing a string of fine saves for the visitors, with Rovers converting all five of their penalties to claim two points and get their cup campaign off the mark. 
The Glovers come away from Bristol with a single point, meaning they’re in second place in Southern Group A with four points, with one match left to play against Reading Under-23’s.
Darren Way made six changes from the side that started at Plymouth Argyle at the weekend, with Maddison, Bevis Mugabi, Ryan Hedges, Otis Khan, Tahvon Campbell and Ben Whitfield all given starting berths. 
Youngsters Joe Lea and Kyle Copp also returned to the Glovers bench, as Way used the cup match as a chance to rotate his squad. 
Town got off to a positive start and tested Kelle Roos in the home goal after just three minutes, with Ryan Hedges’ effort from just over 20 yards calling the Dutch stopper into action early on. 
In a relatively quiet opening 45 minutes neither side created a meaningful opportunity, although Alex Lawless had a well-hit shot from 25 yards deflected just over Roos’ goal. 
The Glovers had the ball in the net with 26 minutes on the clock, but Nathan Smith was adjudged to have fouled the Rovers ‘keeper in the process of heading the ball from six yards. 
At the other end, Chrristian Montano failed to hit the target from inside the box after a deep free-kick fell to the winger’s feet, dragging an effort wide of Maddison’s goal. 
A rather subdued first half was summed up by fourth official Simon Barrow seemingly forgetting to raise his board for additional time at the end of the first period, as Town looked to find a way to secure their progression from Southern Group A at the Memorial Ground. 
Six minutes into the second half and Maddison had to make his first meaningful stop of the game, doing well to get everything behind Montano’s fierce effort from the angle. 
Rovers came closer to scoring just before the hour mark when a deflected Montano cross almost crept in past Maddison off of Alex Lacey, but the young stopper was able to jump on the ball leaving the Pirates claiming it had crossed the line. 
Way introduced Izale McLeod and Kevin Dawson for Whitfield and Khan as the Glovers switched to a 4-4-2 formation with McLeod partnering Campbell up front. 
The visitors’ plan was disrupted with a little under 20 minutes remaining however, as Dawson received his marching orders in strange circumstances. 
The Glovers midfielder was fouled by Montano but received two yellow cards in the space of seconds for his reaction to the foul and then dissent towards referee James Adcock. 
Daryl Clarke’s side looked to capitalise on their numerical advantage and introduced top scorer Matty Taylor in search of an opening goal, and the Pirates frontman almost did just that in additional time  only to be denied by a fine diving save from Maddison.
The 22-year-old, making just his second start for Town, produced another good save to keep out a long range Hiram Boateng effort at the death, as Way’s side dug deep in the closing stages to keep out the hosts and force a penalty shoot-out. 
In the lottery of the shoot-out Rovers converted all five of their spot-kicks to see off Town 5-3 on penalties, with Ryan Hedges the unlucky player for the Glovers after having his effort from 12 yards saved by Roos. 
Bristol Rovers: Roos; Leadbitter, Clarke, Hartley, Brown (Colkett 66’); Montano, Sinclair, Boateng, Moore (Bodin 77’); James, Gaffney (Taylor 66’).
Bookings: Clarke 88’, Colkett 90’.

GLOVERS ANNOUNCE STAFF CHANGES IN MEDIA DEPARTMENT

Alex O’Loughlin has been appointed Press Officer on the retirement of Adrian Hopper. Alex has worked in television, producing sports features for global broadcast including BT Sport and ESPN and most recently was a freelance broadcast journalist with BBC Somerset and BBC Radio Bristol. 
Alex, 23, has covered many of Yeovil’s matches for the last decade for a number of publications and organisations including the Club’s official website.
Upon his appointment, Alex said: “Yeovil is my hometown and I am hugely excited about being a part of the team at Huish Park.”
Alex has been actively working in the role since the start of the season and will now take charge of the Club’s Media Department going forward. 
Speaking after Alex’s appointment, manager Darren Way added: “Alex is young, enthusiastic and willing to learn and develop. 
“I am sure he will be a great asset to the Media Department.”
The change comes as Adrian Hopper, 69, a former newspaper journalist, retires after 14 years with the Club. 
Upon retiring, he said: “It has been the job I always dreamt of, and I loved almost every minute of it, apart from relegation!”
Having worked closely with Adrian throughout his time at the Club, Chairman John Fry said: “This is the appropriate time for us to make significant changes as we look to the future in this very important area of our organisation. 
“Adrian has done us proud in every aspect of his media work. We welcome Alex, and we wish Adrian well in retirement and, of course, good health and happiness.”
Yeovil Town today also announced that James Healey left the Club on September 30th to pursue other activities. James has played a key role in the Club’s Media Department and was fundamental in developing its digital output. The staff, players and directors wish James all the best for the future.

PREVIEW: BRISTOL ROVERS v. YEOVIL TOWN

The Glovers got off to the perfect start in Southern Group A in August, seeing off Sky Bet League Two rivals Portsmouth 4-3 at Huish Park. 
Tom Eaves (x2), Izale McLeod and Bevis Mugabi were all on target for Town who come in to Tuesday’s match top of the table. 
Rovers lost their opening group stage fixture at the Memorial Ground 3-2 to Reading Under-23’s, leaving them bottom of the standings with two games left to play. 
An outright win for Darren Way’s side (three points) would ensure their progression from the group stage with a two point victory – for winning on penalties if the match ends at stalemate – not quite nudging Town over the line. 
Coming into the fixture Yeovil will be looking to return to winning ways after losing their last two matches in League Two including Saturday’s defeat at the hands of table toppers Plymouth Argyle. 
The Pirates return to cup competition having picked up a 3-2 win at Northampton in League One at the weekend, boosting them to seventh in the table after earning promotion from League Two last season. 
Rovers’ main threat will come through striker Matty Taylor who has six goals to his name this season after notching on 27 occasions during the last campaign, whilst fellow striker Ellis Harrison sits on three goals in all competitions. 
Yeovil will have to wait on the fitness of top scorer Tom Eaves who missed Saturdays trip to Devon through injury, whilst captain Darren Ward comes into the fixture in a rich vein of scoring form after netting in two of his previous three matches. 
Head-to-head
The two sides have met 16 times in competitive competition, with Town winning five and drawing a further five fixtures.
Town’s most notable record against the Gas came in the 2003/04 and 2004/05 seasons where the Glovers remained unbeaten in all four meetings. 
The three wins and a draw included the 4-0 win at Huish Park thanks to goals from Darren Way, Adam Lockwood, Colin Miles and Gavin Williams and a 4-2 win the following season with Phil Jevons (x3) and Bartosz Tarachulski on target. 
The Glovers lost both meetings between the two sides last season going down 1-0 at Huish Park before Matty Taylor’s late strike cancelled out Leroy Lita’s equaliser at the Memorial Stadium in April to earn Rovers a 2-1 win.

REPORT: PLYMOUTH ARGYLE v. YEOVIL TOWN

Unbeaten in eight league fixtures the hosts were frustrated by a well-drilled and organised Glovers side in the opening half an hour, before striker Jimmy Spencer broke the deadlock. 
The Argyle frontman twisted and turned in the box before curling an effort into the top corner from the right hand side of the box to give Derek Adams’ side the lead.
Their advantage was doubled minutes before half-time when Jake Jervis’ effort from the 18-yard-line cruelly deflected in off of the hapless Alex Lacey. 
Town responded almost immediately however when captain Darren Ward a got a goal back just before the break after the visitors recycled play from a Matty Dolan corner effectively. 
Yeovil piled on the pressure after the break and came within inches of equalising through Smith and McLeod chances, before the table toppers made it 3-1 through Graham Carey with a little under 20 minutes remaining. 
The hosts added a cruel fourth late on when Jervis netted his second after Carey beat the offside trap to send Town back to Somerset empty handed. 
After defeat in midweek away from home at Cambridge United, Darren Way made three changes to the side introducing Alex Lawless, Ryan Dickson and Izale McLeod in place of Ryan Hedges, Otis Khan and Tom Eaves. 
Top scorer Eaves missed out through injury, as Town deployed Nathan Smith and Kevin Dawson in the wide positions with Dickson slotting in at left-back after returning from an ankle injury. 
Visiting a rampant Argyle outfit, the more conservative 4-5-1 formation contained the Pilgrims effectively in the opening half an hour, restricting the hosts to long range efforts. 
From which, Krysiak parried efforts from Carey and Spencer away from danger, whilst at the other end Lawless had the ball pinched from the end of his toe after Liam Shephard did well to slide the ball across goal from the by-line. 
Seemingly heading to the break goalless Plymouth took the lead on 39 minutes with a moment of individual skill. 
Spencer wriggled into an inch of space inside the box and found the top corner with aplomb, before Jervis doubled their lead four minutes later when his shot fortuitously glanced off of Lacey away from the grasp of Krysiak into the Town goal. 
With the home fans still celebrating their 2-0 lead Yeovil snatched a goal straight back from a Dolan corner. 
Argyle failed to clear the danger and after good work from McLeod – who recycled the ball to Dolan on the right – Ward was on hand to slide the ball home from close range from the midfielder’s inch-perfect cross. 
Despite trailing, momentum stayed with the Glovers after the break and they could’ve been level before the 50 minute mark. 
Firstly, Lawless had a shot from the edge of the box tipped around the post for a corner, before Smith came within inches of putting Town back on level terms.
After recycling possession from Dolan’s resultant corner, the midfielder swung in a tantalising secondary ball which Smith could only head wide from close range. 
Way introduced Hedges just before the hour mark as Yeovil searched for an equaliser and they continued to threaten McCormick’s goal. 
The visitors earned a corner after McLeod and Hedges engineered a swift counter-attack and after failing to clear their lines from the set-piece, McLeod had a half-volley from close range somehow deflected inches wide of Argyle’s far post. 
With a Glovers equaliser seeming the most likely, the Pilgrims struck a punishing third on 71 minutes thanks to Carey. 
The attacking midfielder dribbled his way to 25 yards from goal before curling an effort past the Town stopper with a top-quality finish. 
Tahvon Campbell replaced McLeod for the final 15 minutes but as Town pushed numbers forward, Krysiak had to be on hand to save from a Spencer effort after Hedges initially did well to slow down Jervis’ counter-attack. 
Despite their efforts Yeovil conceded a harsh fourth on 86 minutes as Jervis netted his second of the match, confirming Town would leave Devon empty handed ruing missed chances with the score at 2-1.
