Fifth place: Matty Dolan vs Cheltenham Town
One of the reasons we chose Matty Dolan as our ‘Best Player of the Season’ was the fact that he’s scored some sublime goals this season. A diving header from the edge of the penalty area was certainly one of them!
The instinctive reaction to pull it off was remarkable, and the goal helped Yeovil on their way to a 4 – 2 win against former manager Gary Johnson.
To begin our look back at the 2016/17 campaign, we’re choosing our player of the season.
Such is the sour mood around Huish Park at the moment, there are some fans that claim nobody deserves a ‘Best Player’ award. That simply isn’t true, as there are many members of the team this season who deserve recognition. Here, we’ve given our top three.

The famous footballing cliché is ‘a game of two halves’, but Yeovil Town have had a season of two halves. After finishing 2016 just below the play-offs, they ended the campaign dangerously close to relegation.
This calendar year, the Glovers recorded just three wins from 28 games, leaving the mood around Huish Park rather downbeat. Although the frustration from the fans is completely understandable, I do wonder whether all the negativity is fully justified.
For me, the mentality was summed up by a gentleman returning to his seat for the second half against Crewe Alexandra a few weeks ago with Yeovil 2 – 0 up. As he walked up the stairs, he remarked: “They’re gonna lose 3 – 2, you know.” The final score was 3 – 0. Continue reading “Yeovil Town 2016/17 Season Sum-Up”
After hanging Hartlepool out to dry last week, we’re now attempting to lampoon Leyton Orient in order to create a fiercer atmosphere when Yeovil take on the O’s this Saturday.

Andros Townsend theft
As every football fan knows, Andros Townsend made his senior debut at the mighty Yeovil Town after being signed on loan from Spurs by then-manager Terry Skiverton.
After parring Plymouth last week, we’re now attempting to hang Hartlepool out to dry in order to create a fiercer atmosphere when Yeovil take on the Pools this Saturday.

A million miles away
As always, we start with the obvious: Hartlepool is an absolute trek.
According to Google Maps, it takes 5 hours and 30 minutes to get from Yeovil to Victoria Park, and that doesn’t factor in the inevitable stops for McDonalds and/or KFC at the services. With all that time on the road, how on earth are travelling fans expected to have time for pre-match ciders?
And don’t bother arguing that Hartlepool fans will have to make the same lengthy journey each season, because there’s a difference. When Hartlepool travel to Yeovil, their reward is Huish Park, aka the home of football. When Yeovil travel to Hartlepool, their reward is… well, Hartlepool. Enough said.
