TOWN TO WELCOME MEMBERS OF HMS SOMERSET

22 November 2016

Yeovil Town will welcome members of HMS Somerset to Tuesday night's match against Crawley Town at Huish Park as part of an ongoing partnership.

Members including Commanding Officer Tim Berry, Lieutenant Commander Vince Owen along with six of the ships personnel will be present at the Sky Bet League Two fixture.
 
Recently the ship has been involved in several high-profile exercises including Fleet Readiness Escort duties and patrols with submarines protecting the UK waters, as well as protecting waters off the north coast of Scotland from the Russians, which have been recently reported in the media.
 
Currently, the ship is in Plymouth where civilian contractors are keeping up with the general maintenance of the vessel prior to its next tasking.
 
During the half-time interval, representatives of the club and ship will be exchanging gifts as part of the partnership.
