Rest in peace, Alan Pellow

Everybody at Yeovil Town FC is deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of Alan Pellow.

Alan was a key member of our match-day ticket office team throughout our spell within the Football League. 

A life-long supporter and well-known Glover, Alan will be sorely missed by his family, friends and those that knew him. 

We would like to extend our condolences to Alan’s family and friends at this time.

Rest in peace, Colin Mountain

Everyone at Yeovil Town is deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Colin Mountain.

Colin was a key person within the match day safety team, here and at the old Huish ground.  He was a long standing steward and latterly based in the control room on match days where he was responsible for communication with all the match day stewards. Colin carried out this role for many years and has been a great supporter of the club for even longer.

His ability to draw a smile from all the staff at the club will be deeply missed by all, particularly by all the match day staff that worked with him for many years. A larger than life character, the control room will never be the same.

Chairman of the Supporters Alliance, Rich Rendell added to the condolence message by paying tribute, not only as a much loved person at Yeovil Town, but also as a cousin who would be much missed by all who knew him.

The club would like to send condolences to Colin’s family and friends at this time. 

NEWS | Legends Match Postponed

Today, organisers Kevin Gall and Abby Carter have sadly had to confirm the postponement of the Yeovil Town Legends fixture vs. South West XI.

In a statement, Gall and Carter said;

Given the announcement yesterday by the National League it is with a heavy heart that we have to Postpone the game on May 17th. The decision to do this is absolutely heartbreaking but naturally we are left with no other choice.

Once we have more information we will share this with you and we thank you wholeheartedly for all of your support so far but with the clubs support they have given us permission to be the first game played back at Huish Park when those turnstiles are open again.

Organising this game has been something we’ve been desperate to bring together for many years and sadly at the moment we are in this difficult position but the game will happen as soon as we are able. Once we have a new date we hope more people than ever will join us to celebrate Adam Stansfield’s life and pay tribute to the special people who have dedicated their lives to YTFC but are sadly no longer with us.

Many of you have already purchased tickets for the game, these will be valid for the new date once we can confirm when this is and once the ticket office is back up and running you can take your ticket to them and they will issue you a new one with the new date.

We will be sharing the order forms for the shirts today. Stay safe, look after your loved ones and continue to follow Government advice.
