Yeovil Town will take on Merthyr Town in a pre-season friendly ahead of the 2016/17 League Two campaign.

The friendly encounter at Penydarren Park will take place on Monday 18th July with kick-off at 7:30pm.

Merthyr recently appointed former Town midfielder and fans favourite Gavin Williams as their new manager.

Manager Darren Way said: “I am delighted that Gavin has been appointed the permanent manager of Merthyr Town, he certainly deserves it.

“This pre-season it seems that I will be managing against my former team mates. I am looking forward to getting to work this pre-season.

“The fixture at Merthyr works well for us as we are staying at The Vale for a pre-season camp.”

Gavin Williams said: “I cannot wait for the fixture against Yeovil, I am really thankful to Darren for agreeing to bring the team to play here.

“It will seem weird being up against Darren in the technical area rather than playing alongside him in midfield!”
