Yeovil Town fans are set to take on over 5000 miles following the Glovers for the forthcoming 2023/24 season.

But this represents a significant drop from the National League campaign of last season where any supporter who made every away game would have topped 8000 miles on the road.

Yeovil may have lost away days to Gateshead, Scunthorpe and Halifax (to be honest, anywhere even remotely close to Gloverscast Ben and Dave… cheers lads) but there are some fairly long trips still in the schedule… just more east, rather than north.

Yeovil’s longest journey in the upcoming season is a 404 mile round trip to Dover Athletic, but some slightly closer games against Taunton, Weston Super-Mare and Bath have done wonders for the Glovers’ fans carbon footprint.

In comparison, only twice did Yeovil play within 100 miles of Huish Park last season (Eastleigh and Torquay), that number rises to eight this coming season.

If you are supporting Yeovil on the road this season, the grounds might be a bit smaller, the pints might be drunk in front of the terrace rather than behind closed doors, but let’s hope you’re watching some better football, some more goals… and maybe even a win or two.

(note: all mileage numbers are taken from Google Maps direct from Huish Park to the opposition ground – and I’ve included Truro as playing at Plymouth Parkway – the full list is below)
