Yeovil Town supporters have taken to social media to send their best wishes to former player and backroom staff member Stuart Housley who is in hospital.

The 72-year-old played nearly 400 times for the club in two spells between 1969 and 1980 before returning  as youth team manager and then in various backroom roles under a succession of managers.

He was a major part of the club’s most successful period which saw them win the the FA Trophy, promotion to the Football League  in Gary Johnson’s first spell at Huish Park and then promotion to the Championship under Johnson again in 2013.

In 2016, he spoke publicly to the Yeovil Press about his battle with leukaemia.

Everyone here at the Gloverscast send our best wishes to Stuart and his family and friends and hopes for a speedy recovery.
