PREVIEW | Yeovil Town vs Boreham Wood

Yeovil Town return to league action this Saturday (3pm) as 17/18 play-off finalists Boreham Wood visit Huish Park.

With 10 wins from the last 13 games, the Glovers come into this clash in fine form, looking to maintain the winning formula in Somerset.

Visitors Boreham Wood are winless in their previous three games, but their last victory came against Town’s promotion rivals Halifax Town at The Shay in early October.

Victory on Saturday could see Yeovil go top if results go in our favour.   

Head-to-head

We meet with Boreham Wood for the first time since 1997; the most recent clash saw Town claim a 1-0 victory at home in front of 873 fans.

Yeovil Town hold a strong record against the Wood, in the five times we have met, the green and whites have won on three occasions, drew once and lost once.

The Glovers have a strong defensive record against the Wood, having only ever conceded one goal against Saturday’s visitors.

An emphatic victory for Yeovil came in November 1966 as Graham Kemp and a Jerry Gill double fired the then step-six side to a 3-0 victory.

 

Martin Baker

With Saturday’s game being the first home game since Martin Baker, founder of Ciderspace passed away. @_Old_Green_Eyes and @Glove_Actually have created a wonderful tribute flag, which will be at Huish Park for the the first time on Saturday – ‘Not all legends are players’.

Officials 

Tom Reeves will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon, this will be his eighth National League match this season, showing 24 yellow cards in the previous seven. His assistants will be Andrew Genders and Robert Evans with Rob Cockle acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Haringey Borough 0 – 3 Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town let their football do the talking with an 0-3 emphatic victory over Haringey Borough.

Despite stories outside the players control surrounding the game, Town produced a confident performance under the floodlights in North London.

A Chris Dagnall double and Luke Wilkinson header were enough to put the hosts to the sword and book the Glovers a place in the first round.

Darren Sarll made five changes to the side which snatched a late win against Chorley last weekend.

Charlie Lee and Wilkinson returned to the side following suspension.

Saturday’s substitutes Dagnall, Gold Omotayo and James Tilley all returned to the starting 11 after making a positive impact in their short time on the pitch.

The first half was characterised by a distinct lack of chances. The Glovers largely controlled the tempo, but the final pass just wasn’t there.

Dagnall had a number of chances to get on the end of crosses, but the former Leyton Orient forward couldn’t quite get a touch.

Tilley looked bright once again after registering an assist on Saturday, the attacking midfielder went close with a speculative effort from distance in the 14thminute.

The visitors would have the first clear sight of goal as Jorge Djassi Sambu had his effort expertly tipped over by Stuart Nelson.

Despite the lack of chances, the green and whites would find a way to go in front, albeit through a far from attractive effort in the 31stminute.

A goalmouth scramble saw the ball fall to Omotayo, the forward couldn’t get a shot away but Lawson D’Ath then powered through at the near post and fired on goal, his effort was then turned in by Dagnall for his first goal for Town.

At the break, Yeovil held a deserved lead.

Haringey should have levelled just minutes into the second half. A great counterattack caught Yeovil out with Froxylias played clean through on goal on the right flank, but a great stop from Nelson denied the hosts wide man.

A driving run from Hippolyte won a free kick for Yeovil. An unlikely candidate in Wilkinson stepped up and saw his effort fly just narrowly wide.

Just minutes after his free kick, Wilkinson would double the Glovers lead in the 56thminute. After Pajetat was caught in no man’s land, the defender rose highest and emphatically headed home from a corner.

It would be three moments later as Dagnall netted his second of the evening in the 60thminute. After Pajetat failed to deal with a cross, the Yeovil forward made no mistake in capitalising on his error and put the result beyond doubt.

Haringey would continue to test Yeovil, going closest through Coby Rowe who had a free kick expertly saved by Nelson, but the hosts could not break down the Somerset side.

Ultimately, it was Yeovil’s quality and experience that told as Town booked a date with fellow National League side Hartlepool at Huish Park.  

 

 

Haringey Borough: Pajetat, Kisitu, Demetriou, Stone (Durojaiye), Rowe, Froxylias (Akinola), Aresti, Ademiluyi Sambu, McDonald (Onokwai).

Booked: Stone, Onokwai.

Subs not used: Mitchell, Solomou, Panagiotou

 

Yeovil Town: Nelson, Hutton, Collins (Bradbury), Wilkinson, Hippolyte, Lee, D’Ath, Tilley (Worthington), Skendi, Dagnall, Omotayo (McCoy).

Booked: Tilley.

Subs not used: Smith, Murphy, Arnold.

PREVIEW | Haringey Borough vs. Yeovil Town

The Glovers match-up against North London Haringey Borough outfit once again this evening (7:45) following the match abandonment just over one week ago.

After a late victory over Chorley on Saturday thanks to Rhys Murphy’s late header, Town will be looking to carry their momentum into the cup as they look to book a place in the first round.

The hosts convincingly beat Horsham 3-0 at Coles Park Stadium on Saturday to advance in the FA Trophy.

Victory tonight will see the winners host Hartlepool in the first round proper.

Head-to-head

Prior to the previous abandonment, Yeovil and Haringey Borough had never met before.

With Murphy’s penalty chalked off and both sides holding a clean slate, it’s a chance to write some history for both sides.

Officials

Simon Mather will be the man in the middle for this evenings clash. He will be assisted by Christopher Myatt and Ryan Head with Tom Bishop acting as the fourth official.

REPORT | Chorley 1-2 Yeovil Town

Late heroics from Rhys Murphy spared Yeovil Town’s blushes as the Glovers battled to a 2-1 victory.

After taking a first half lead through Matt Worthington, the hosts would equalise in the second half to make a real game of it.

Murphy would leave it late to strike Yeovil in front, heading home to secure all three points.

Darren Sarll made four changes to the side that faced Haringey Borough last weekend.

It was a return for Courtney Duffus, who was unavailable last weekend due to the artificial pitch.

Suspensions for Charlie Lee and Luke Wilkinson offered opportunities for Albi Skendi and Tom Bradbury to start in their preferred positions.

Remeao Hutton started in the place of Craig Alcock after replacing the full-back last weekend during the first half. Myles Hippolyte also returned to the side in an unfamiliar full-back role.

Yeovil began the game on the front foot, stroking the ball around nicely, dominating the tempo of the game.

It would not take long for the Glovers to strike ahead, after a determined run from Murphy, the forward laid the ball off into the path of Worthington to fire into the bottom corner in the 7thminute.

The hosts struggled to create any chances of note with the green and whites back-line resolute despite the suspension of Wilkinson.

Despite a lot of the ball, Town struggled to create any more clear-cut opportunities, the best falling to Jimmy Smith who saw his header strike the bar twice.

At the break the Glovers held a deserved lead.

The Magpies began to grow into the game during the early stages of the second half, but still struggled to get beyond the green and whites backline.

It would take until the 70th minute for Chorley to finally break through. A goal-mouth scramble saw the ball drop to Ntumba Massanka who poked the hosts level.

Yeovil looked to bounce back as substitute Gold Omotayo found Smith charging into the box, but his effort was tame.

After a brilliant James Tilley free kick, the Glovers would have the ball in the back of the net, but the smiles were soon wiped from Yeovil faces as Tom Bradbury was adjudged to be offside.

The 86th minute would see late heroics from Murphy. After Tilley’s outstanding cross, the forward headed his ninth goal of the season to ensure the three points would return to Somerset.

 

Yeovil Town: Nelson; Hutton, Bradbury, Collins, Hippolyte; Skendi, Worthington (Tilley), D’Ath, Smith (Dagnall); Duffus (Omotayo), Murphy.

Bookings: Smith, Duffus.

Subs not used: McCoy, Arnold.

 

INTERVIEW | D’Ath relishing new role following his Huish Park return

Since re-joining Yeovil Town in the Summer, Lawson D’Ath has been a vital member of the Glovers dominant midfield.

Despite playing a slightly deeper role to his previous stint at club, D’Ath has felt comfortable right away.

Speaking to YTTV, the former Northampton Town man said:

“The manager rang me up in the summer, I didn’t have a club at the time, but I was training with Swindon Town. They didn’t make an offer to me, but the opportunity here came I up and I jumped at the chance.”

“I’m really enjoying it here; I just want to carry on playing. The position I play now is a bit different to when I was younger. I played further forward at the start of the season, but now I have dropped back and feel more comfortable in that role.”

“I now get to do the defensive side of the game, alongside the attacking side. I always want to score goals, but ultimately I just want us to win, and if I play well that’s a bonus.”

D’Ath has fond memories of his first spell with the green and whites and credits the loan as the time he grew into a man.

“I scored my first professional goal at Huish Park; it was against Colchester and we won 2-1.”

“When I first moved here, I was only 19, and it was my first time away on loan. It was difficult at first as I had never moved so far away from home before. I’m from Oxford but was playing for Reading at the time.”

“Moving away at that age, it helped me grow up a lot. I grew into a man, living so far away that you can’t just pop home when you want. Then playing men’s football, it was a massive learning curve for me, especially with the players in that dressing room at the time alongside Gary Johnson.”

PREVIEW | Chorley vs Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town return to league action on Saturday (3pm) as the Glovers travel North to face Chorley.

Having not played at Victory Park since 1989, Town fans can enjoy a trip to unfamiliar surroundings.

The hosts have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years under the management of former player Jamie Vermiglio, who led the Magpies to promotion from the National League North last year.

The Glovers will look to bounce-back after falling short in the last league outing against Harrogate Town at Huish Park.

Head-to-head

 Town have not clashed with Chorley since 1990, when Mickey Spencer netted twice to secure a 2-1 victory.

In our five previous meetings with the Magpies, the record books are overwhelmingly positive, with the green and whites boasting four victories and just one defeat.

The sole defeat came in our last trip to Victory Park with Chorley running out the 3-2 victors.

The most memorable encounter came in our first meeting with this weekend’s hosts as the Glovers were 5-2 victors in the second round of the FA Trophy.

Officials

Andrew Kitchen will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon at Victory Park. This will be Kitchen’s tenth game of the season, after taking charge of both Premier League 2 and National League action so far.

Kitchen will be supported by Ben Wyatt and Alistair Nelson, with Darren Rogers acting as the fourth official.

UPDATE:  In the run up to next Tuesday’s game both clubs have been working closely with each other and the authorities to ensure Tuesday’s game is trouble free. This process has involved very senior personnel at both clubs, including Glovers Chairman Scott Priestnall who has taken a direct and active interest in this matter to ensure the safety for all supporters.  

Fans attending the game will see a number of changes from the original fixture as a result of this dialogue, with examples being no fans from either club being behind the goals, increased stewarding arrangements and all away tickets sales being sold by the Yeovil Town FC box office, which means that no tickets can be purchased on the day for the away end.  

The club has also been looking at fan requests to show the game at Huish Park, but having reviewed the matter, as no broadcaster is showing the game live, this is unfortunately not possible.

INTERVIEW | Sarll keen for a good performance in ‘special’ FA Cup

Yeovil Town kick off their FA Cup campaign on Saturday (3pm) with a trip to North London to face Haringey Borough.

Sarll couldn’t hide his admiration for the competition steeped in history, when speaking to YTTV he said:

“I very much enjoy the FA Cup, like everyone does. It’s part of the culture of this country, it is a really special competition.”

“I’ve been very fortunate, I’ve had some really good days in it, but I’ve also had a hiding from teams that shouldn’t beat my teams!”

“Every team goes through that, and that is what drives the love affair we all have with the competition.”

“For Yeovil, it’s important for numerous reasons, the most important thing is we keep winning games, and keep that positive ratio we have at the moment.”

Haringey have a great recent history in the competition. The hosts enjoyed a brilliant run last season, facing AFC Wimbledon live on the BBC, narrowly losing 0-1 at Coles Park Stadium.

“Last year they had a great run, especially with the tie that they had (AFC Wimbledon). Really good luck to them, I’m an ex non-league player so I know exactly what it feels like.”

“I’ve managed lots of FA Cup games too where my team has been the underdog. We’ll just go and try and play really well. We need to take care of the task at hand and be very professional, as the squad has always been since I came in.”

“It’s more important to me that we just carry on winning more than we lose.”

PREVIEW | Haringey Borough – Yeovil Town

FA Cup campaign begins as Yeovil travel to Haringey Borough. 

 The Glovers face a trip to North London as they face Isthmian League Premier Division outfit Haringey Borough in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Situated on White Hart Lane, Haringey’s Coles Park Stadium is actually the only stadium on the road made famous by their neighbours Tottenham Hotspur.

This will be the Glovers first time in the qualifying rounds of the FA Cup, after falling out of the EFL last year.

The hosts have enjoyed recent success in the FA Cup, hosting AFC Wimbledon in a televised clash last season where they fell to a narrow 0-1 defeat at Coles Park Stadium.

Yeovil fell at the first hurdle last season, as then a National League North side, Stockport County upset the green and whites at Huish Park.

Head-to-head

This FA Cup meeting will be the first meeting between the two sides in any competition.

In what will be a historic occasion for both sides, we’re expecting a memorable afternoon in North London.

Martin Baker

We can confirm that there will be a minute’s applause in tribute to Martin Baker ahead of kick-off on Saturday.

Supporters Alliance | Martin Baker

Via the club, Supporters Alliance Chairman Rich Rendell releases the following statement:

 

“On  behalf of the Supporter Alliance we send our condolences to Martin’s family and friends on the sad news of his passing away last weekend.  He will be greatly missed by the Club and the Yeovil Town Fans, especially for his outstanding work in running the Ciderspace website.

 

Paul Hadlow and I spoke with Darren Sarll on Saturday evening who was upset by the news and reinforced that all involved in Yeovil Town are one family and we will support each other.

 

The Supporters Alliance is looking at arranging a tribute to ‘Badger’ at Saturday’s game vs. Haringey Borough, and we will be involved in the discussions with the Club regarding a similar tribute to Martin at the next home game vs. Boreham Wood”.

Rest in peace, Martin Baker

Everybody at Yeovil Town FC is deeply saddened to hear this evening’s news that Martin Baker has passed away.

Martin’s work via the Ciderspace website and other projects has done so much over many years to promote and help the club.

Everyone at Huish Park including all of the playing and management staff want to send their sincerest condolences to Martin Baker’s family and friends, he will be sadly missed.

Darren Sarll added; “It’s individuals like Martin that make and made Yeovil the wonderful, family environment it is. I’ll miss his updates and his contribution and loyalty to Yeovil Town FC.”

“It is our duty to make sure that Yeovil strives for further successes and allows him to watch from above, and be proud of our future achievements.”

“This club is a family and we support each other through the good and the bad. We open our arms to his family and friends at such a sad time and please know they are always welcome at Huish Park”

REPORT | Yeovil Town 1 – 2 Harrogate Town

Yeovil Town fell to a disappointing defeat to 1-2 Harrogate Town at Huish Park.

The Glovers had the opportunity to go top with a point, but goals from Brendan Kiernan and Jack Muldoon leaves Town in third place.

Rhys Murphy would slam home a consolation in stoppage time but it was not enough for the green and whites.

Darren Sarll made two changes to the side which comfortably dispatched Woking on Tuesday night.

Tom Bradbury returned to the side in the place of Carl Dickinson, seemingly due to an injury. 

Myles Hippolyte also returned to the side after being rested on Tuesday, replacing James Tilley who was not in the squad. 

Despite a slow start, the Glovers had the better chances of the opening minutes. Jimmy Smith would have Yeovil’s first effort, hooking his effort wide following Hutton’s cross.

The green and whites would go close as the ball fell to Duffus in the 22nd minute as the striker escaped his marker and fired into the side-netting.

Following this, the visitors largely controlled the tempo, holding onto the ball for long periods but rarely creating anything of significance. 

Jack Diamond would have Harrogate’s best chance from a free-kick 25-yards from goal, but the midfielder ballooned his effort over the bar.

The closing period of the first half offered two great chances for the Glovers. The first fell to Myles Hippolyte who dragged his effort wide from the edge of the box.

Just minutes later, Duffus would go inches from taking the lead. After poking the ball beyond the enrushing Harrogate goalkeeper, some heroic defending from the visitors saw the ball cleared off the line and away to safety.

After an even affair, the score was level at the break.

The green and whites came out of the second half with real intent, and went close just minutes into the half as J.Smith had his effort cleared off the line.

Yeovil began to turn the screw as the half progressed, continually finding routes in-behind the visitors defence. However, the Glovers rarely tested James Belshaw thanks to last-ditch defending from Harrogate. 

Despite the Glovers continual pressure, the visitors would strike ahead. Kiernan’s effort from the edge of the box found its way through bodies nestled into the bottom corner.

The visitors would add a second in the 79th minute. After a defensive mishap, Muldoon was sent through on goal and made no mistake, gibing Harrogate a two-goal cushion.

Murphy would offer Town a life-line, volleying home in stoppage time after J.Smith’s initial effort was blocked.

Ultimately, the Glovers found the net just too late as Harrogate ran out the victors.

PREVIEW | Yeovil Town vs Harrogate Town

Harrogate Town visit Huish Park on Saturday (3pm) in the first meeting between the two sides.

Yeovil come into the fixture rejuvenated, after defeat to Hartlepool last weekend, Town bounced back to an emphatic 3-1 victory over Woking on Tuesday night.

Harrogate arrive in Somerset, unbeaten in their last six games, picking up 12 points from those fixtures.

After Harrogate made the National League play-offs for the first time in their history last season, the Sulphurites will be looking to go one better this time round.

 

Head-to-head

Whoever comes out on top at Huish Park will claim the first-ever victory between the two sides.

With the green and whites dropping out of the EFL following a 16-year stay last season, the Harrogate have travelled in the opposite direction, rising through the non-league ranks.

 

Officials

Carl Brook will be the man in the middle on Saturday. This will be his second game officiating the green and whites, previously taking charge of our midweek clash with Ebbsfleet in August. 

Craig Scriven and Adam Ricketts will act as Brook’s assistants with Richard Lawrence the fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 3 – 1 Woking

A stunning close to the first half sees Yeovil Town return to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Woking.

Rhys Murphy’s double and a cool Jimmy Smith finish were enough to secure victory under the floodlights at Huish Park.

Woking looked to find a way back into the game in the second half, with Ibrahim Meite scoring an unstoppable effort from distance, but it only proved to be a consolation for the Cards.

After the loss to Hartlepool, Sarll rotated his side making three changes.

Courtney Duffus returned from injury and replaced Gold Omotayo up-front.

The Gaffer also made two changes to his midfield as Matt Worthington and James Tilley made a return to the the starting eleven. 

New signing Chris Dagnall was named amongst the substitutes and made a second half cameo.

Yeovil made a bright start to the match, fashioning a shooting opportunity within the opening minute.

Matt Worthington’s first time cross fell perfectly for Jimmy Smith but the midfielder could not beat Craig Ross with his headed effort. 

The visitors would have a number of half-chances, the best being Dave Tarpey’s effort from the edge of the box which forced a save from Adam Smith.

The Glovers would take the lead in the 13th minute as Rhys Murphy emphatically headed home. A great delivery from Duffus was met by Tilley at the back-post, the Brighton-loanee then hooked the ball into the danger area to find Murphy with space to head home his sixth goal of the season.

Chances largely dried up after the goal, with neither side creating anything clear-cut. 

It would not be until the 41st minute for either side to fashion another opportunity.

Duffus showed great strength as the towering forward held off his marker and turned him inside-out to win a penalty for Town.

Earlier goalscorer Murphy stepped up to take the penalty, but had his initial effort saved. However, the forward reacted quickest to turn in the rebound and give the Glovers a two goal cushion. 

The green and whites were not done there, adding a third on the stroke of half time. Murphy was again involved as the striker played the ball across goal into the path of J.Smith. The midfielder then had an easy task, placing his effort on target and giving Yeovil a commanding lead.

After a fantastic final five minutes the Glovers held a strong lead at the break.

Murphy header would go close to adding his third in the 46th minute. Dickinson played a perfectly-weighted cross to the front post for Murphy to head on, but the striker had his flicked header saved.

The second half was played in a similar vein to the first, with chances few and far between.

It was always going to take something spectacular to spark the game back into life, and Meite obliged in the 68th minute with a stunning effort from distance leaving A.Smith stranded.

Woking looked to add their second just minutes later, Moussa Diarra went close with a header which  flew across the face of goal.

After coming on at half-time, Meite made a real impact for Woking, attempting to grab the game by the scruff of the neck. The Woking forward fired narrowly wide in the 82nd minute.

Town almost added a fourth as the game entered the closing stages. The ball fell nicely to Albi Skendi who was unmarked in the area, the midfielder’s effort was on-target but it was cleared off the line.

Despite pressure late on, Woking could not fashion another goalscoring opportunity, meaning Yeovil returned to winning ways.

Yeovil Town: Smith; Dickinson, Collins, Wilkinson, Hutton; Lee, Worthington, Tilley (D’Ath), Smith (Skendi); Duffus (Dagnall), Murphy.

Bookings: Hutton.

Subs not used: Bradbury, Omotayo. 

 

Woking: Ross; Casey, Cook, Diarra, Gerring (Meite), Parry; Ferdinand, Poku (Kretzschamar) , Donenellan; Tarpey, Loza (Hodges).

SIGNING | Dagnall confirmed as a Glover

Darren Sarll has added to his striking options with the signing of 33-year old Chris Dagnall.

Signing on until the end of the season, forward Dagnall adds a wealth of experience alongside a history of consistent goalscoring.

Most recently of Tranmere Rovers, Dagnall was part of the side that won promotion from League Two via the play-offs last season.

In a total of 491 Football League appearances spanning from 2003-2019, the forward bagged 121 goals.

shutterstock_editorial_9294896s.jpg

Dagnall began his career at Tranmere in 2003, but it was his time at Rochdale that proves a real highlight.

In his four years with The Dale, Dagnall proved to be a reliable talisman, netting on 57 occasions. 

Following his time at Rochdale, Dagnall enjoyed successful spells at a number of clubs, most notably Leyton Orient & Crewe where he bagged 44 goals in 144 appearances.

The forward now arrives in Somerset, in the squad to face Woking, ready to bolster Sarll’s attacking threat.

PREVIEW | Yeovil Town – Woking

The Glovers host National League South play-off winners Woking this evening.

After falling to defeat last time out against Hartlepool, the green and whites will be looking to return to winning ways as Alan Dowson’s side visit Huish Park.

Woking, who currently occupy fourth place will be vying to pick up a good result after failing to win in September.

Head-to-head

The Glovers have not clashed with Woking in competitive action since March 2003, when Town were held to a 1-1 draw away from home.

The most recent meeting was in-fact a pre-season friendly in 2005, the Glovers ran out 2-0 victors thanks to goals from David Poole and Luciano Alvarez.

Our most recent meeting at Huish Park was an emphatic 4-0 victory, with the recently appointed Academy Manager Terry Skiverton on the scoresheet.

Match Officials 

Taking charge of his fifth National League game, the man in the middle this evening will be Daniel Middleton.
 
Middleton’s assistants will be Colin Hubbard and Sean Rothwell, with Lewis Sandoe acting as the fourth official.

NEWS | Glovers to face Haringey Borough in the FA Cup

Yeovil Town have been handed an away trip to Haringey Borough in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.

Opponents Harringey, reached the first round of the competition last year, conceding in the last minute against AFC Wimbledon in a televised tie at Coles Park Stadium.

This is the first time in eighteen years that Yeovil will begin their cup journey before the first round ‘proper’ of the competition.

The tie will take place on the weekend commencing Saturday 19th October 2019.

More details such as ticket news and date & time confirmation will be posted in upcoming days. 

INTERVIEW | Sarll disappointed with lack of purpose

Yeovil’s winning streak came to an end at the hands of Hartlepool United at Victoria Park on Saturday.

After Rhys Murphy had cancelled out Gime Toure’s strike in stoppage time, Jason Kennedy netted just one minute later to secure three points for the Pools.

Following a disappointing afternoon in the North-East, Sarll told YTTV“I thought we lacked real purpose in everything we did. There was no real intent.”

“I thought we got into lots and lots of positions in both boxes, where we had maybe one more stage or phase of the play to go, such as going past someone, getting around someone, finding one more pass or something like that to finish.”

“We had lots of three-v-threes, four-v-fours and those types of moments. We never ever did enough, nowhere near enough in the conviction of those scenarios and incidents.”

“I thought it was the same at the other end. There were too many last gasp moments for us defensively, and too many moments where Luke Wilkinson probably made a brilliant block, or Lee Collins timed a really good interception, or Charlie Lee or whoever.”

“Then on the flip side of that, Murphy probably should have had a penalty, Luke Wilkinson at the back post headed it over, rather than down and in like he’s been doing for countless weeks. Gold Omotayo heads it in from six yards in the first half.”

“There were so many of those ifs, buts and maybes, where sometimes you look at it and you think if we played until next October would we still score playing this way?” 

Defeat means the Glovers hot streak of seven wins comes to an end, but Sarll had been warning green and white fans that a performance like this was inevitable.

“I think there was always going to be an afternoon where our standards weren’t good enough, and the opposition standards were a lot higher – and that would see us lose.”

“It was still a very very close game; let’s be honest. It’s not been a whitewash in any shape or form.”

“Whilst their performance levels were probably higher than they’ve been this year, our performance was lower than what we’ve come to expect.”

“I think when you get the two variables one is that low and one is that high – that is obviously when you lose games.”

 “I thought at 1-1, we’d applied enough pressure in the second half to at least have a go at it. We then got to that 1-1, but then it was absolutely scandalous to let that second goal go in, with minutes left.”

INTERVIEW | ‘Frustrating day all round’ – Murphy

Yeovil Town’s unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday after a frustrating afternoon in Hartlepool. 

Despite Rhys Murphy bagging an an equaliser in the 90th minute, the match didn’t stay level for long with the hosts claiming the victory just a minute later through Jason Kennedy. 

Speaking to YTTV, goalscorer Murphy wasn’t happy with the team’s performance:

‘It is incredibly frustrating, you think you’ve got a point, it’s a tough place to come, long journey and then to give them the game like that it’s very frustrating.’

‘It’s been a really frustrating day all round, we didn’t perform how we come to expect. We’ve all worked really hard to set a standard at this club, a really, really good standard and we dipped below that today.’

Despite losing their seven game unbeaten run, Murphy thanked all the fans and wants them to stay optimistic.

‘That’s what I want to be doing, as a striker, I want to be scoring goals in front of the fans – who’ve made an incredible effort to come all this way. We really appreciate all the fans, they have been fantastic with us this season, both home and away. 

‘We all appreciate the time, the effort, the money they’re spending to come and see us. They’re a noisy bunch and we really do appreciate them coming, so it’s nice to give something back to them. 

‘But to then go and give the game away like that in front of them, it’s disappointing. But, we go again, we take the positives from today, because there were some and we also focus on the negatives. 

The Glovers now face Woking on Tuesday night in the National League, Murphy said it’ll be a tough game for the team:

‘It’ll be another tough game, we’ll be battling for ninety plus minutes. They’ve had a good start to the season, flying high from last season and scoring lots of goals, I believe.’

‘Today was frustrating as we’re on a good run and everyone is riding high, but these things happen and you know it’s not going to last forever, but we’ll dust ourselves down and go again.’

‘Hopefully it’ll be the kick up the backside that we need to make sure nobody thinks we’re above our station and we’ll be working as hard as we can to make sure we’re back on track for Woking.’

MATCH REPORT | Hartlepool United 2 – 1 Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town fell to a late defeat as Hartlepool end winning run.

Despite pulling level in the 90th minute, the hosts scored just a minute later to secure three points.

Gime Toure scored the opening goal of the game in the second minute of the second half after the ball bounced around the penalty area. 

Late pressure from the Glovers saw Rhys Murphy level in the 90th minute, but in the dying embers Jason Kennedy netted the winner. 

Darren Sarll made two changes to the side which beat Bromley at Huish Park.   

Craig Alcock was replaced by Remeao Hutton after the full-back took a knock in training. 

Lawson D’Ath replaced Matt Worthington in the midfield as the gaffer made a tactical tweak. 

A doubt after being substituted early on against Bromley, Murphy did start against Hartlepool.

The hosts began the game on the front foot, with Gime Toure looking bright throughout the early stages. 

Toure would have his first shooting chance of the game in the eighth minute as he burst beyond the Yeovil defence but fired just wide of the mark.

Just minutes later, Town would fashion their first shooting opportunity of the afternoon. A fast breakway found Jimmy Smith in space to shoot but the midfielder balooned his effort over the bar. 

Toure would continue his bright start in the 12th minute. After some nice footwork, the forward attempted to chip Adam Smith in the Yeovil goal, but to no avail. 

As the green and whites struggled to create anything clear-cut, the hosts had a succession of guilt-edge opportunities. 

The first fell to Fraser Kerr, after a well worked corner, the defender couldn’t quite connect with the delivery as the ball dropped agonisingly wide. 

Just minutes later, Pools captain Ryan Donladson burst down the left-wing and drilled a cross into the path of Luke James but he couldn’t meet the delivery. 

As the half came to a close, Yeovil finally began to find routes on goal. 

Murphy would have the green and whites best opportunity of the half. The striker spear-headed a Yeovil counter and broke beyond the hosts back-line. However, a heavy touch took the ball away from him and into Ben Killip’s gloves. 

After a half of few clear-cut chances, the teams went into the break level. 

Just one minute into the second half, Hartlepool would break the deadlock. 

After Smith saved an initial effort, the ball bounced around the box, only to be turned in by the ever-dangerous Toure.

The Pools continued to look dangerous after scoring. They would go close in the 54th minute as Peter Kioso’s cross was met by Donaldson in acreas of space, however the wide-man headed over. 

Charlie Lee would attempt to grab the game by the scruff of the neck in the 60th minute. A mazy run saw the midfielder skip beyond the Hartlepool en-rushing midfield but he cannot fire on target. 

The efforts from distance would continue as Brighton loanee James Tilley fired into the gloves of Killip in the 69th minute.

Frustration would continue for Town as Collins combined with his defensive partner Wilkinson. A cross to the back post was met by the centre half but Wilkinson headed into the side-netting. 

Rhys Murphy would level for the Glovers, emphatically firing home from inside the box after James Tilley’s cross.

The hosts would find a winner in the 92nd minute. Jason Kennedy found space at the back-post and fired past Adam Smith to secure all three points for the hosts. 

 

Hartlepool United: Killip; Kioso, Kerr, Raynes, Richardson, Kitching, Mafuta, Kennedy, Donaldson, James (Featherstone), Toure (Kabamba).

Subs not used: Hawkes, Holohan, Cunningham.

 

Yeovil Town: Smith; Dickinson, Collins, Wilkinson, Hutton; Lee, D’Ath (Skendi), Hippolyte (Tilley), Smith; Murphy, Omotayo (McCoy).

Bookings: Tilley, Dickinson. 

Subs not used: Bradbury, McCoy,  Worthington.

CLUB STATEMENT | Ball Boy Incident

Following a post-match review of our recent home game with Bromley, the club would like to clarify that match officials only instructed YTFC to remove one ball boy from duty during the second half.  
 
The remaining ball boys were withdrawn by a club official who took into account the welfare of the remaining ball boys and the fact that the fixture was nearing completion.
 
YTFC ball boys have a strong tradition of high standards over many years and this isolated incident at the recent game should not detract from this.
 
Having investigated and clarified this matter the club will make no further comment.

PREVIEW | Hartlepool United v Yeovil Town

Darren Sarll’s side look to extend their winning run when they head to Hartlepool on Saturday (3pm).

The green and whites are the in-form side in the National League, picking up maximum points in their last seven games.

Most recently, the Glovers toppled league leaders Bromley in an eventful affair. After the Ravens took the lead through Michael Cheek, a calamitous own goal and headers from Jimmy Smith and Charlie Lee were enough to claim three points. 

Looking to carry on the strong momentum, Town travel to a struggling Hartlepool side, who are winless in their last five. 

Head-to-head

Sarurday’s clash will be the first between the two sides in Non-League football after previously meeting in the Football League and FA Cup.

Our most recent trip to Victoria Park in February 2017 ended in a 1-1 draw. After Padraig Armond put the hosts in front, a Matty Dolan penalty just minutes later was enough to share the points. 

A memorable victory against Hartlepool came in March 2010. A Glovers side which included current player Craig Alcock smashed four goals past the Pools for a comfortable 4-0 victory.

Town also contested a topsy-turvy FA Cup tie with this weekend’s opponents December 2010, after taking a 2-goal lead. Hartlepool sprung into life thanks to an Anthony Sweeney hat-trick, eventually running out the 4-2 victors.

Officials

The man in the middle this weekend is Steven Copeland.

Copeland will be refereeing his fourth National League tie, having brandished 12 yellow cards in his previous three.

He will be assisted by Alex Gray, Nicholas Hawksby and Joseph Goodwin.

NEWS | Superb September for Sarll

After a spectacular September where Yeovil gained maximum points, Darren Sarll has been awarded the National League’s manager of the month award.

The month began with victory over Sutton United. Tom Bradbury’s second half strike was enough for the Glovers to secure all three points.

Town then followed up with a brilliant away performance. Gold Omotayo struck twice against Halifax Town for the Glovers to topple the side who was then sitting at the top of the league.

A week later the Glovers would beat last season’s play-off finalists and FA Trophy holder AFC Fylde in an exciting 3-2 encounter at Huish Park.

A battling performance away to Solihull saw the Glovers once again take three points. Luke Wilkinson was the star of the show that afternoon, scoring and then spending the last ten minutes in goal.

The final week of the month saw two victories, the first away to Aldershot where the green and whites produced a fine attacking performance, topped off by a spectacular Rhys Murphy goal.

The final game of the month came as Yeovil toppled the unbeaten league leaders Bromley at Huish Park. In an event-filled game will be remembered for years to come, Town came out the 3-1 victors in front of a crowd of 3,960.

As announced last week, the club’s new ownership has launched a season ticket offer, giving fans even more of an incentive to pack Huish Park!

Available until 4pm on Friday 4th October, Scott Priestnall has offered supporters the opportunity to purchase discounted season tickets for the remaining 16 home fixtures.

Speaking on the season ticket offer, Scott said: “One of my main focuses is to make the fans feel part of this club again – we all have to come together. A big part of that is getting the supporter base back inside Huish Park and this season ticket offer gives people the chance to do just that. 

“We have a manager and a team on the pitch who are giving their all day in, day out and now it’s about coming together as a football club, a town and a community to move forward as one.”

With Junior season tickets available for just £30– under 16’s can enjoy the remaining fixtures for just £1.88 per match.

Supporters wishing to buy a season ticket are asked to do so on a non-matchday. 

All supporters with a season ticket by close of play on Friday 4th October (including existing ST holders) will be entered into a prize draw to win a host of prizes listed below!
