Yeovil Town Chairman John Fry has passed on his heartfelt thanks to all the Yeovil Town supporters who have followed the club through thick and thin this season, culminating with a large contingent up at MK Dons on Sunday and a huge turnout back at Huish Park for the return of the Pedal from Paris cyclists and the Beer Festival.
“Naturally we are all bitterly disappointed to be relegated again this season.” said Mr. Fry.
“But during all the trials and tribulations the fans have stuck with the team through thick and thin. They have traveled the length and breadth of the country to support the team never letting the results or the position the team was in put them off.
“At home we have maintained a reasonable level of support as well, which makes it so disappointing to find ourselves down in League Two.
“Whilst thanking people I would also like to offer my sincere thanks to the 103 cyclists who took part in the Charity ride back from Paris.
“Don’t under estimate the challenge that this ride presented, the organisers did a magnificent job in brining everybody back safely for the third time in three years.
“Although I wasn’t present for their homecoming, as I was away at MK Dons, I understand the atmosphere was brilliant around the ground and that after a couple hiccups everybody had a very enjoyable day.
“So to Ben Tupman, Sara Bradley, Marilyn Cottle, Events Crew, all the sponsors and volunteers, on behalf of the board, supporters staff and club I would like to thank you all for your support for the event, and to the supporters for your loyal backing throughout the season as a whole.
“Now we must look positively to the future, get behind our new manager Paul Sturrock and his management team and new players and start a new chapter in the successful story of Yeovil Town.”
Backing up the Chairman was one of the main instigators of the Pedal from Paris bike ride- Ben Tupman.
“Getting the group of cyclists back safely for the third year running was an incredible feat and I’d like to thank all those that took part, together with our sponsors and Events Crew, without whom, we could not have achieved our objective.
“Arriving back at Huish Park was an incredible experience and the atmosphere around the Marquee with the live music, Beer festival and Community games was fantastic.
“Last year we managed to raise £51K for local charities and I am hopeful we will better that for this year’s charities Yeovil Town Community Sport’s Trust, Cystic Fibrosis and Cyclists fighting Cancer.”
