Month: June 2018

NEWS | Khan departs for Mansfield

Arriving from Sheffield United in June 2016, the former Manchester United youngster went on to make 87 appearances in Green & White scoring 18 goals. 

During 2017/18, Khan became the first Town player to score 10 goals before the turn of the year since Phil Jevons in 2004 before a stop-start second half to the campaign. 

Commenting on the departure, Darren Way told YTFC.net: “Otis made a massive contribution with his goals and assists during his time with us and is a prime example of what you can achieve at this football club. 

“We’ve built the club to a point where we don’t have to sell without remuneration and within two-years Otis has come in and moved on for a substantial sum. 

“It’s four years since we last received a transfer fee and we now look forward to developing our next crop of talent whilst being in a position where we don’t have to sell.”

INTERVIEW | Gaffer’s update as pre-season begins

With the 2018/19 campaign looming, the first-team return to Huish Park in the coming days to begin their preparation for the new season. 

Amongst the familiar faces will be the four new arrivals in Somerset, with Diallang Jaiyesimi, Carl Dickinson, Nathan Baxter and Gary Warren representing the club’s summer transfer activity thus far.

With just under six weeks until the transfer window closes, Way is pleased with the way his squad is coming together.  

“As a manager, it’s the first time our foundations have been built with experience at the core,” he told YTFC.net.

“I feel recruitment has gone very well and Omar (Sowunmi) can be the last part of the jigsaw as far as the defence goes.

“The long-term strategy of the club is to develop young talent who can progress whilst in an environment where you’ve got to win – that’s why having an experienced core is so important to instill their knowledge and know-how.”

Way continued: “When we played Forest Green Rovers in April the average age of the starting eleven was 21. That was a game to secure our EFL status and the experience they would’ve gained from that would be unparalleled in under-21s football.”

Left with just three players last summer, the Glovers boasted a squad of 14 at the end of the 2017/18 campaign after a change in recruitment policy which saw the award of numerous longer-term contracts. 

Also posting a profit for the year ending June 2017, Town’s boss is pleased with off the field developments. 

“We’ve made it a financially robust operation,” he said. “We’ve lost players in previous years for nothing with contracts expiring.

“It’s taken time and patience but we’re now in a position where we can award longer contracts to benefit us instead of other clubs.”

Commenting on speculation regarding the futures of Otis Khan and Tom James, he said: “We don’t want to sell our best players, but we are at least in a position to be renumerated for any departures.

“That will allow this club to continue to evolve.”

After a summer away from Huish Park, pre-season action returns on July 11th when Swansea City visit.

As Town supporters prepare to return, Way is also looking to build relationships off the pitch.

“I’ve put a great emphasis on the squad and myself to rekindle the relationship with the community which I feel has been lost in previous years.

“I’ve had a meeting with all head teachers in Yeovil to discuss how we can pull together and the first-team players are out in the community with YTCST. 

“Our fans wear their hearts on their sleeve and we are desperate to give them success.”

INTERVIEW | I’m coming here to win things – Warren

After six years in Scotland with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Warren heads south of the border to relocate closer to his Bristol roots. 

However, after helping the Caley Jags reach three cup finals – lifting the Scottish Challenge Cup as captain – the 34-year-old insists the transfer is about much more than a move closer to home. 

“I’m back home to the South West,” the Bristolian told iFollow Glovers. “It’s good to come back and to have been given a chance to come and play for Darren and for Yeovil Town.

“But I’ve been in the game a long, long time to know what it takes to be successful. I’m not coming here to just think it’s a chance to come and play, I’m coming here to win things and try and take this club forward and be as successful as we can.

“I’ve been speaking to Darren and Yeovil for some time now so I’m excited and looking forward to the season and looking forward to getting going.”

With over 600 career appearances, the former Newport County defender adds vast experience to the Glovers squad. 

Something noted as missing last season by Darren Way, Warren reveals his conversations with Town’s manager led to Huish Park becoming his chosen destination. 

“As soon as I spoke to Darren, I came down and had the chance to meet him and from my point of view, it’s a big factor – who you’re working for and playing for – and he showed a great interest in me from very early on.

“He’s someone I paid attention to last year and I saw how the club got on and how well it has progressed. 

“There’s great young talent here and some good faces already at the football club and I’ve come in to not only help out, but give that bit of experience that I’ve got and pass it on.”

SIGNING | Glovers capture Warren

The 33-year-old, who was club captain at the Caley Jags, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Huish Park having reached a settlement to leave the Scottish Championship outfit a year early. 

Making 218 appearances for Inverness during a six-year spell, Warren leaves the Scottish Highlands after leading the club to three cup finals which included lifting the Scottish Challenge Cup in March.

With over 600 career outings the Bristolian returns closer to home to link up with Darren Way’s side, adding vast experience to Town’s ranks who moved quickly to secure his signature. 

Heading south of the border for the first time since 2012, Warren will now link up with just the fifth club of his career following on from successful spells with Newport County, Team Bath and Mangotsfield United.

Securing his fourth signing of the summer, Town’s boss told YTFC.net: “Every club he has been at he’s been a loyal servant and his CV suggests that.

“A captain and leader with vast experience, he has led Inverness to three cup finals and comes with a winning mentality. welcome to Yeovil, Gary.”

Applicants must be over the age of 16 and able to work on matchdays when required.

INTERVIEW | Baxter out to follow in footsteps

Ready to challenge experienced ‘keeper Stuart Nelson for a starting spot in Darren Way’s side, the 19-year-old is looking to add himself to a list of loan stoppers who’ve gone on to reach the highest level.

The Glovers have honed the talents of the likes of Alex McCarthy, Asmir Begovic, Marek Stech, Sam Johnstone and Wayne Hennessey during loan stints in the past. 

After chatting to Blues team-mate Begovic prior to agreeing to the switch, Baxter found the decision an easy one to make.

“You can see the number of goalkeepers who’ve played here and are now playing at top level,” he told iFollow Glovers.

“Me and the gaffer talked about how many goalkeepers have come on loan spells and progressed, so it’s a great club to be a part of and the detail that goes into the work here is great.

“I’m really excited to be working with goalkeeper coach as well; both him and the manager were massive factors in me coming here over anywhere else.”

With more than 80 appearances under his belt from loan spells in the Vanarama National League, the Chelsea youngster is looking forward to the next step. 

Following the 2017/18 season with Woking, Baxter picked up four end of season Player of the Year awards and is excited for his first taste of the EFL.

“I’m ambitious and I want to challenge myself. It’s not easy at any level you go into but I feel like I’m ready to play and challenge myself at this level.

“It’s the next step of my development – it can only be good for the club that there are keepers pushing for the shirt and I’ll come here and stake a claim to play that’s for sure.”

Watch the full interview with Nathan Baxter here.

SIGNING | Baxter loaned in from Chelsea

The 19-year-old arrives for his first taste of EFL football, after picking up a host of end of season awards whilst on loan at Woking in the Vanarama National League in 2017/18.

At Stamford Bridge since the age of seven, Baxter has enjoyed unbridled success through the age groups claiming both the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League in his debut season as a scholar. 

Having established himself as a talented shot-stopper in the Blues’ academy, he spent successful loan spells at Metropolitan Police and Solihull Moors before making 46 appearances for the Cards last term.

A popular figure at the Kingfield Stadium, Baxter picked up an impressive haul of four separate Player of the Year awards at the season’s end and will now compete for the number one spot with Stuart Nelson at Huish Park. 

All at YTFC wish Nathan all the best during his time as a Glover. 

NEWS | Maddison ends Town stay

The 23-year-old had one-year remaining on his deal at Huish Park but will now become a free agent. 

The former Leicester stopper made 22 appearances for the Glovers during his two seasons in Somerset with his last outing coming in the 0-0 draw with Forest Green Rovers in April. 

All at YTFC thank Jonny for his efforts and wish him all the best for the future.

INTERVIEW | I was sold the vision – Dickinson

Putting pen to paper on a two-year deal on a free transfer from League Two rivals Notts County, Carl Dickinson is Darren Way’s first permanent signing of the summer. 

Having helped guide Stoke City to the Premier League in 2008, the 31-year-old has gone on to enjoy spells with the likes of Leeds, Portsmouth, Coventry and Watford whilst featuring in all four top divisions of English football. 

Now contracted in Somerset, the Staffordshire-born defender is ready to help achieve the management’s vision. 

Speaking to iFollow Glovers, he said: “I’m delighted to join, the club was sold to me and I really can’t wait to get going. 

“They (the management) sold me the vision of where they want the club to go next season and for me, I want to be a part of that. I’ll make sure I give everything day in, day out to get where this club and the manager want to be.

“I want to play football and be happy and I think with the manager and his staff they’re going to give me everything to do that and I’ll make sure I give everything as well.”

Spending the last two seasons with the Magpies, Dickinson featured 32 times in 2017/18 as Kevin Nolan’s side made it to the play-off semi-final. 

Becoming one of the more experienced players in the Town squad, the defender is happy to lead some of the younger members of the squad. 

“I know what needs to be done in this league and if I can pass on any experience to the younger lads and be a part of where we want to go this season, hopefully, my experience can count,” he said.

“I’m just going to be me – I like to be a voice in dressing room day in, day out. If I can help anyone that’s a bonus but I’m here to do my job and that’s to help myself get better and help the team get three points on a Saturday.”

SIGNING | Town swoop for experienced Dickinson

Arriving on a free transfer from League Two rivals Notts County, the 31-year-old becomes Darren Way’s first permanent signing of the summer.

Able to operate at left-back or in the middle of defence, Dickinson graduated through Stoke City’s Academy before going on to help the Potters earn promotion to the Premier League in 2008. 

After representing the Staffordshire outfit in the top flight of English football, he enjoyed loan spells with Leeds, Barnsley and Portsmouth before earning a move to Watford in 2011 for a fee in the region of £250,000.

Renowned for his work rate and robust style of defending, Dickinson made over 40 appearances for the Hornets prior to a three-year stay at Port Vale in League One which included a stint as club captain. 

Snapped up by the Magpies in 2016, he made 72 appearances for the Nottinghamshire side including 32 during last season’s run to the play-off semi-final before being signed up by the Glovers.

Delighted to have captured the defender’s services, Town’s boss told YTFC.net: “The club has needed someone with Carl’s experience and his signature is one we were determined to get. 

“He’s played at the highest level and has been a warrior and winner throughout his career, characteristics shown by winning promotion to the Premier League with Stoke. 

“A real leader of men, Carl will be massive for us both on and off the pitch and will complement our squad of talented younger players whilst adding to our experienced core of Nelson, Bailey, Zoko and Fisher. 

“Carl is a selfless character but adds strength, resilience and a never-say-die attitude and I’m excited to work with him for at least the next two years.”

FIXTURE | Guide to the newcomers

Bury

The Shakers suffered a season to forget in 2017/18, finishing rock bottom of League One to suffer relegation to the fourth tier for the second time in five years.

Struggling towards the bottom of the league for much of the season, Bury’s relegation was confirmed with four games remaining. 

Player-manager Ryan Lowe is still in charge after taking over in January and will be looking to mastermind a return to League One with experienced players such as Stephen Dawson, Neill Danns and Jermaine Beckford on their books. 

The Glovers meet Bury on the opening day of the season, in what will be the first meeting between the two sides since April 2013.

Macclesfield Town

After six years away from the EFL, the Silkmen earned promotion back to League Two in style by claiming the Vanarama National League title. 

Finishing 10 points ahead of Tranmere Rovers, Macclesfield defied the odds to finish with a final points tally of 92 after being tipped for relegation at the start of the campaign. 

Top scorer Scott Wilson will be looking to continue his scoring streak after netting 14 goals in 2017/18, in what will be his first taste of EFL action. 

Experienced manager Mark Yates has taken charge at Moss Rose after John Askey departed for Shrewsbury following promotion. 

Yeovil welcome Macclesfield on March 16th.

MK Dons 

Another of the relegated quartet from League One, the Dons return to the fourth tier after just two seasons.

The Glovers most recently played the Buckinghamshire outfit during the 2016/17 season, when Darren Way’s side ran out comfortable 4-1 victors in the Checkatrade Trophy. 

Now ready to meet for the first time in the league since 2015, MK Dons will be looking to rebuild after finishing 23rd in League One last season. 

The club’s relegation saw the departure of manager Dan Micciche, with Paul Tisdale appointed his successor after 12 seasons in charge of Exeter City.

Town head to Stadium:MK towards the end of March.

Northampton Town

Suffering relegation in 2017/18, the Cobblers are back in the League Two for the first time in three seasons.

The Northamptonshire outfit looked to have pulled clear of the drop zone in January when they rose as high as 18th, but a slump in the final few months saw them finish up a lowly 22nd after a winless nine-game run. 

After initially taking caretaker charge, Dean Austin was given the job on a permanent basis last month and will be tasked with overseeing a swift return to League One. 

Key to that will be midfielder John-Joe O’Toole who has 30 goals to his name in 140 appearances for Town. 

Darren Way’s side make the trip to the PTS Academy Stadium for the penultimate game of the season.

Oldham Athletic

The final of the four relegated teams, the Latics suffered relegation on the final game of the 2017/18 season after a valiant effort to beat the drop.

A disastrous start to the campaign saw them lose seven of the first 10 matches, a disappointing run of form which they couldn’t overturn come May. 

Oldham have spent the last 21 seasons in League One, so will have to adjust to life back in the fourth tier. 

Former striker Frankie Bunn was appointed manager as recently as last week, taking over from Richie Wellens who departed Boundary Park at the beginning of the month. 

Town host Oldham in their first midweek match of the season on Tuesday August 21st. 

Tranmere Rovers

Earning promotion back to the EFL via the Vanarama National League play-offs, Tranmere saw off Boreham Wood 2-1 at Wembley in the play-off final. 

After three seasons in non-league, the Merseyside club return to League Two after a rollercoaster campaign in 2017/18. 

Three wins from their first 12 games saw them languishing in their lowest ever league position of 18th, before an incredible run of form – which included a club record nine consecutive home league wins – earnt the Super White Army a spot in the play-offs.

With a win percentage of over 50% since taking over in 2016, manager Micky Mellon will be hoping for their end of season form to continue in 2018/19.

October will be the first time the two sides have met since 2013.

FIXTURE | Villa tie selected for TV coverage

Taking place on Tuesday 14th August (7.45pm), the Round One clash has been selected for television coverage in what will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides.

Steve Bruce’s Championship outfit will head to Somerset after narrowly missing out on promotion back to the Premier League last season, suffering narrow defeat to Fulham in the play-off final at Wembley. 

For Darren Way’s side, it will mark the second season in succession where the Glovers have faced second tier opposition in Round One, after facing Wolves at the same stage in 2017/18.

Ticket prices will be confirmed in due course.

SIGNING | Canary flies in on loan

The 20-year-old, who spent last season on loan at league rivals Grimsby, becomes Darren Way’s first signing of the summer.

Graduating from Aspire Academy, run by Dulwich Hamlet, the pacey attacker was scouted by the Canaries before signing a professional contract in 2016.

After scoring eight goals in 33 appearances for City’s Under-23s in 2016/17, Jaiyesimi enjoyed his first taste of senior football on loan at Blundell Park last season making 35 appearances and scoring once.

Penning a new deal in Norfolk until at least 2020, the winger – who can also operate in attacking midfield or as a striker – will join up with Town when pre-season commences at the end of this month. 

All at YTFC wish Diallang all the best during his time with the Glovers.

COMMUNITY | YTCST host Football Festivals

As part of the Premier League Primary Stars programme, the children enjoyed coaching sessions as well as a tour of the stadium. 

The programme aims to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills with YTCST spending time with local schools to deliver fun, educational sessions in a range of subjects. 

After heading to the home of the Glovers, YTCST Manager, Sara Bradley, commented: “As part of our Premier League Primary Stars programme, we have engaged with 324 boys and girls from our partner schools and local primary schools at our Football Festivals over the last two days. 

“We have received nothing but positive praise from the staff and pupils who attended and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. 

“I would like to thank the club for their help with hosting the events, Darren Way for his incredible support as always and the twelve junior leaders from Buckers Mead Academy.

“Finally, I would like to say a massive thank you to my team of staff who work tirelessly to provide fantastic opportunities for children in our community through events like this and the other programmes that we deliver within our community.”

NEWS | Gobern exits Huish Park

The 27-year-old made 14 appearances for the Glovers after arriving in December on non-contract terms.

TICKETS | Early Bird season ticket deadline looming!

For a second successive year, the prices have been frozen to offer the same great value which can see supporters enjoy up to nine games free. 

The club has also listened to feedback from the Supporters Alliance and reduced the price of a Young Person’s season ticket and extended the age bracket to encompass all fans aged 16 to 23. 

For Juniors, the incredible value continues with under-16s able to enjoy each game for less than £2 a match and enjoy huge benefits such as discount in the club shop and FREE membership to become a Junior Glover.

Adult season tickets start from just £12 a game, with supporters able to make a saving of up to £280 against matchday prices.

Existing season ticket holders will have until Friday 15th June to retain their spot inside Huish Park at the Early Bird price for the 2018/19 campaign. After that, tickets will go on general sale at an increased price meaning huge savings are to be made before the deadline for both new and existing supporters!

Very much aware of our young supporters being the next generation of fans to fill Huish Park, we have listened to feedback to help bridge the increase in price from Junior (under-16) to a Young Person (16-23) season ticket. 

To consider students and to further help bridge the price increase to an Adult season ticket, the previous 21-year-old age limit has been increased to 23.

Reducing the Young Person rate by up to £60 offers each match at less than £7 and can see up to seven games FREE.

ACADEMY | Chairman comments on restructuring and player development

Fry explained: “We have recently undergone a full EFL Audit of our Academy standards and on limited resources, we have performed well thanks in no small part to very strong support from Southampton FC and Yeovil College. Having said that we are not complacent as we want to see graduates from our own Academy transition and be able to play EFL standard football.

“With that in mind we will be amending our Academy operations for next season and are also looking to set up an under-21 team for 2019/2020.  

“Setting up these improvements is a very detailed process and has included our own in-house review of our Academy’s football, education and safeguarding practices to ensure we continue to apply the very best standards going forward. We expect to be able to announce the results of our reviews shortly.” 

Fry also gave more insight into the complex relations the club has set up with top level teams when he said: “We have two-way recruitment, coaching and match experience arrangements with top clubs for the different career paths in youth football.

“Our Football Management Team have over the years established several important contacts at clubs such as; Southampton, Swansea, Bournemouth, West Bromwich Albion, Brighton and Everton. These links are important as although Darren and his coaching team have gained a nationwide reputation for preparing Under-23 players to play at a higher level, we do not currently have the competition structure to bring our own 16 to 18-year-old Youth Players through to League Two standards at the end of their basic training programmes.”

Fry underlined how these relationships can help Academy players who are not ready to graduate to EFL football with the Glovers by highlighting the recent example of Joe Tomlinson: “After a discussion between the first team and Academy Managers it was agreed that none of the scholars could immediately transition to the EFL squad this season.

“Without an under-21 team this would normally leave a talented scholar like Joe with few options, but via our exit programme and contacts Joe was given the opportunity of trials at Southampton and Brighton by our Football and Academy Management teams.”

Commenting on social media speculation that the club could have financially benefited by transferring Tomlinson, Mr Fry said: “I am aware that there have been social media comments suggesting Joe had been subject to a six-figure offer from another club before he left us, but that is simply incorrect.

“No offers were received and if we had selfishly held on to Joe’s registration waiting for an offer, this clearly talented player could have seen his football career options limited. It underlines our commitment to our youth players that if they cannot immediately be part of our senior squad, we will find ways to help them progress.” 

The club expect to announce improvements to its Academy for next season during this month.

NEWS | Fans show overwhelming support in safe standing debate

The survey, which received more than 33,000 responses in less than two weeks, is part of the recently launched ‘Stand up for Choice’ campaign, which is being run in conjunction with the Football Supporters’ Federation and is specifically designed to fully understand the views of fans of EFL Clubs.

The consensus amongst supporters could not be clearer, with the overwhelming majority believing that Clubs should be able to provide fans with a choice between standing and being seated at EFL matches.

The survey, which has received the highest number of responses for any EFL led campaign, also revealed:

  • Over two-thirds (69%) of responders indicated that they would prefer to stand, compared to less than a quarter (22%) who claimed a preference for seating;

  • Standing has also shown to be more popular with younger fans with the highest supporting demographic coming in the 18-34 age groups;

  • There is a high demand for the choice to stand across all three divisions, with 94% of Championship supporters and 92% of League One and League Two supporters all in support;

  • Nearly half (47%) of all fans said they would attend more games if licensed standing was available;

  • There is no material difference between the responses compiled from supporters of the 21 EFL Clubs who currently offer standing accommodation compared to supporters of Clubs who don’t. 

The full results of the survey and comments from EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, can be found by clicking HERE.
