Town fan Pat Custard has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Fan of the Month for January.

Pat is well known at the club for her voluntary work – so much so that at away games the travelling Yeovil fans have started singing ‘There’s only one Pat Custard!’ in her honour.

Pat’s average day usually begins at around 5am when she gets to the ground to begin making it presentable for both home and away fans.

Some of the roles that Pat undertakes include painting, cleaning, sandwich-making as well as taking photographs of fans on match-day and proof-reading the match-day programme.

Pat said: “When I hear the fans singing my name I immediately go bright red and just hope that they only sing it once.

“My first voluntary role at the club was in the conference days when The Green and Whites were in need of help clearing the terraces after games, and since then I have continued to help wherever I can.”

Yeovil Town Chairman John Fry said: “Pat has been a supporter of the club for many years. She is an absolute diamond.

“Pat follows the club both home and away and puts in endless hours of her own time volunteering at Huish Park.

“It is great that she is being recognised for all that she does for Yeovil Town Football Club.”

Pat’s Sky Bet League 1 prediction:

Yeovil 2 Gillingham 0 – Gozie Ugwu first goal scorer (22/1– subject to change)

Scunthorpe 1 Yeovil 2 – Stephen Arthurworrey first goal scorer
