Yeovil Town return to Huish Park on Saturday afternoon with a National League clash against York City (3pm).

After an unbeaten Bank Holiday weekend, the Glovers will be looking to extend a positive spell against the newly promoted side.

After an impressive promotion campaign, York will be hoping to take their form of last season into the new campaign.

Chris Hargreaves’ thoughts

The boss spoke to the media in his pre-match presser on Thursday afternoon:

Team news

It’s been a busy few days in terms of transfer business for Yeovil Town. Both Alfie Pond and Matt Grivosti’s loan spells have come to an end, with the former earning a move to Premier League side Wolves.

This has meant that Hargreaves has ventured into the transfer market, signing Owen Bevan on loan from AFC Bournemouth and Somerset lad Will Dawes from Stratford Town.

On the injury front, Sam Pearson has returned to training and could return against York.

What’s on at Huish Park

At 10:30am, the Yeovil Town U18’s return to competitive action with a match against Cirencester at Alvington. Supporters are welcome so get down and show your support!

This week’s community hero is Anne Cowie. Anne had an active role working for YTFC as the youth team physio until she left to work in Yeovil District Hospital before joining the Ambulance Service in 2004 as a Paramedic and became a Specialist Paramedic in 2014. She later went back to work in Yeovil Hospital in AEC, where she worked tirelessly on the frontline during COVID-19, working some very long hours. 

In October 2021, she was highly commended in the Yeovil Hospital Awards in the Patient Award category. 

Anne is also a Level 1 Coach, taking on the coaching role at Pen Mill Ladies and now devotes her time to coaching mini soccer at the same club. 2018 saw Anne become a referee after a 30 year playing career. Earlier this year she took to the field at Huish Park and officiated in the Adam Stansfield Memorial fixture. If she isn’t coaching or refereeing, then she is mentoring newly qualified referees in the local youth leagues.

A foot in the opposition camp

After promotion from the National League North, York have been busy this Summer looking to build a squad which can help continue their climb up the pyramid.

The star recruit is Scott Boden from Boreham Wood. He is an experienced forward who has spent a number of years competing within the National League. Last season he struck 11 times for the Wood.

Have we met before?

It’s been a little while since the last time we hosted York. That game came in Jan 2016, with Matt Dolan’s penalty proving difference. 

In truth, Yeovil have a strong record against York as across all four meetings, the Glovers have won three of them.


Tickets for the game can be purchased from the online ticket office until midday on match day for physical tickets, but until kick-off for e-tickets/print at home. 

Following this, they can be purchased in person from the ticket office, however this is subject to a small price increased. We strongly recommend getting to Huish Park early to avoid queues.
