Five Conclusions

The wait is finally over. Ian was at Huish Park to see Yeovil Town lift a league trophy for the first time since 2005. Here are his conclusions from a memorable afternoon in the sun…

We needed a jolt to spark us into life. The party was in full flow at Huish Park but Luke Coulson’s early header was the wake up call that there was a game of football in the way of the trophy lift. Coulson’s free header silenced the bouncing Huish Park momentarily, but two minutes later Sam Pearson put his body on the line to get the equaliser and Yeovil never looked back.

Yeovil were dominant. Mark Cooper’s side, pressure free, controlled possession and played some excellent football. Short, sharp passing led to some good chances in both halves and Yeovil should have done more with the chances they had. After 45 games of high pressure, the Glovers enjoyed the occasion and put on the kind of performance we saw during The Run.

Alex Fisher scores. 📸 Gary Brown

Feed the Fish! A year ago Alex Fisher suffered an horrific injury in front of the Thatchers Stand and yesterday it went full circle as he scored Yeovil’s third and got to celebrate in front of those supporters. Say what you want about Alex Fisher, but he is a phenomenal representative of Yeovil Town and it was great to see him get that goal on the spot where his career almost came to an end. He’s scored some huge goals this season after returning from injury and played an important part in getting Yeovil back into the National League.

Pearson and Morgan took their chances. Pearson’s early miss last weekend was forgotten about with his goal yesterday and he and Brooklyn Genesini struck up an exciting, pacey partnership on the right hand side. Dylan Morgan’s appearances have been sporadic lately, but I thought he had a great game. He was all over the pitch, showed some brilliant bits of skill and his goal was well struck – albeit with a Dartford deflection.

Champions! 📸 Gary Brown

This title feels so sweet. There is a massive cohort of Glovers who’ve never seen a League win, who are probably sick of hearing about 1997, 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2013. They’ve finally witnessed it themselves and know what its like. The celebrations at Huish Park were fantastic to see after the last decade of disappointment. This club has been through the ringer since that historic Championship season. Four relegations, negligent ownership, three failed takeovers and nearly entering administration 12 months ago before Martin Hellier completed his takeover. All of that (and plenty more) has made this win feels so much sweeter. Congratulations to everyone at Huish Park who’s made this happen, let’s do it again next year…

Worthing well and truly pooped the party at Huish Park in front of another 6000+ crowd. Yeovil weren’t at the races and fell to a disappointing 3-1 defeat. Here are Ian’s five conclusions from the press box…

Polite enquiries are made. 📸 Gary Brown

Gareth Thomas had a shocker. Let’s get this one out of the way early doors. I can’t remember many referees who’ve gone through a game making no decisions in the middle of the pitch when they needed making, but being certain on decisions where there was doubt, in areas that make a difference. In truth, I couldn’t see the penalty decision, it looked like Pearce got the wrong side of Wannell and felt contact and went for it and looking at the highlights, there’s maybe a pull by Wannell. The offside is as tight as they get without taking 20 minutes to draw lines, but enough people (who would know and have access to see it again) told me it was on. Huish Park was denied a glorious moment which Thomas will always be remembered for now. The FA assessor was in attendance and in conversation with Yeovil’s coaching staff after the match. As woeful as he Thomas was, the scenes at the final whistle will surely see some form of punishment for the club.

We never felt in control. The praise in the aftermath of the Torquay win was how in control Yeovil were for the entire game, but it never felt like we had it against Worthing. We kept the ball at times, but it was a bit of a basketball match. We know Worthing score a lot of goals, and they can play some free-flowing stuff and they were effective in preventing us from playing out. The controlled possession we’ve enjoyed wasn’t there. Defensively we didn’t look comfortable and up front we snatched at chances when composure was needed and couldn’t get the final ball right.

We looked vulnerable at the back. I’ve not said that very many times at all this season, given how we’ve controlled games and how dominant we’ve been at the back. But, Morgan Williams and Jake Wannell didn’t look their best with the ball, and Cashman and Pearce seemed to pull them all over the pitch. Fage and Felix enjoyed plenty of space on the wings and Dolaghan caused problems from deep and got his rewards following Foulston’s error. The defence have barely put a foot wrong all season, and like Mark Cooper said, the forward players needed to take their chances.

We missed so many chances. I wanted an early nerve-settler and in the third minute, Sam Pearson has a 24 karat chance to settle the entire town. Clearly he didn’t expect a chance of that magnitude to fall to him in that fashion and he snatched at it and skied the ball. Sonny Blu Lo-Everton has a chance too, that Worthing’s keeper somehow saves, but Lo-Everton should score from such close range. Frank Nouble has a couple of half chances on his left foot from the edge of the box that he can only put over the bar. Half time substitute Rhys Murphy earns a penalty that he doesn’t convert. Morgan Williams goes close with a header, too. Yeovil could, and probably should, have been 2-0 up before Pearce converts his penalty.

We’re nearly there. As disappointing and infuriating as it was to not have our moment at Huish Park, a point against Truro on Thursday is all it will take to clinch the league. The expectation, anticipation and hype around Worthing’s visit would have made victory at home so much sweeter and maybe it was too good to be true. We’re Yeovil Town, and if we’ve learn something over the last decade, it’s that we never make it easy. It was a big game, with a lot of attention on it and as much as Mark Cooper tried to play it down in the build up and keep the players grounded, the pressure of the occasion seemed to get to the players. They’ll recover, learn from it and after 11 long years, we’ll celebrate promotion on Thursday.

Chippenham made it four points from a possible six against Yeovil this season, as they inflicted a double dose of home defeat on the Glovers. An uninspiring performance was witnessed by Tom, who has given us his Five Conclusions…

Alex Fisher celebrates his goal against Farnborough.

Classy from Fisher! There were some pretty dour performances out there tonight, but one player that did impress me was Alex Fisher. His header was taken expertly, meeting Olly Thomas’ wonderful cross to give Yeovil the lead. I think his determination alone earned him my Man of the Match (and the sponsor’s Man of the Match as well). His work rate, and success in aerial duels across his 90 minutes were great to see, and I think he’ll continue to play a part in Yeovil’s run-in. Credit must also go to Sonny-Blu Lo-Everton, and Alex Whittle, who also put in solid performances.

Credit to ChippenhamAs much as Yeovil clearly weren’t up to the races tonight, credit to Chippenham for executing their gameplan to a tee. I spoke to Steve Rutter before the game, and he said we had to be careful of a potential banana skin here, as their away form, particularly against better teams, has been impressive this season – and we saw exactly that. Calm in defence, with Fisher’s goal the only real lapse in performance for the visitors, three well taken goals to give them three well earned points.

Jordan Young. Picture courtesy of Gary Brown.

It’s time to discuss Jordan Young. He started the season quietly, before setting fire following his opening goal against Tonbridge Angels, but since his contract extension at the start of 2024, I’ll be honest and say I’ve seen nothing from our number 11 at all. Tonight was no different, as we saw Young either trying too much at once and being dispossessed, or being pushed out of the game. I don’t know where the Jordan Young of 2023 has gone, but I’d desperately like him back for the end of the season please!

Some positives… It’s easy to be negative after a loss, but there were some positives to take from tonight. Josh Owers gave a good account of himself when he replaced the injured Charlie Cooper, that pairing with Sonny-Blu gave us a little bit of both defensive stability, and a little bit going forward with our special number 16. We looked a bit more fluid in the second half compared to the first, before the goals took the wind out of our sails, and the ideas were there from Nouble and Stevens, nothing was coming off for us though. It’s not all doom and gloom yet!

However… we got away with it tonight. Yes, I’ve listed off the positives above, but these are games we need to be clinching, and widening the gap at the top. We have got seriously lucky tonight, with Chelmsford and Worthing both losing too, there’s no need to panic but we have got to be careful that this doesn’t set a precedent for the end of the season. Up the Yeo!

Welling United secured their second win over Yeovil Town this season, completing the double and ending the Glovers’ unbeaten record at home. It was not a pretty afternoon at Huish Park, and here are Ian’s Five Conclusions…

Jay Foulston challenges for the ball. Picture courtesy of Gary Brown.

It all fell apart when Michael Smith went off. His quality is undeniable and we’re a significantly better team with him in it. But, surely he’s not THAT important. After Smith’s injury in the 15th minute, Yeovil lost all flow, rhythm and patterns of play. There was a very brief switch to a back three, with Jay Foulston left of the three, but that quickly shifted back to a back four with moved Foulston to right back. He really struggled. He didn’t look comfortable offensively or defensively and the part of Jordan Young’s game that depends on the overlapping and defensive security of Smith was lost too.

Our attackers are struggling. Mark Cooper said that the goals had ‘dried up’ following the match and it was a match where there was little flow from the forward players. Frank Nouble and Sonny Blu Lo-Everton swapped positions in the first half to try and make things happen. (I thought Nouble looked more effective through the middle.) Jordan Young had another game where nothing clicked. He had some sloppy moments in possession and didn’t make the impact we’ve come to expect. Sam Pearson wasn’t able to get into a full flow and show his pace and neither was Jordan Stevens. It was only when Olly Thomas came on and he had a couple of decent chances, that Yeovil really threatened.

You have to give credit to Welling. They’ve done us in league twice now, and with two very different teams. They weathered the early storm from Yeovil and managed to create a few half chances and shots from distance. Their goal came from a calamitous error from Charlie Cooper, but it was a great finish from Anthony Grant who rifled the ball into the top corner from a tight angle. With less than 20 minutes on the clock, it then became an exercise in seeing the game out and the Wings did it masterfully. Time taken in dead ball situations, patience in the corners keeping the ball away from Yeovil. 

We seemed to lose our composure. Morgan Williams and Jake Wannell have been a calming influence at the back all season, but there was a mad spell in the second half where they were caught out by Welling and conceded fouls. Wannell relished the first half battle with Reece Grant and largely controlled it, but in a second half where most players seemed to get shaky, it was noticeable when they struggled. Perhaps because their standards have been so high. Through the midfield we kept trying to go long, hitting hopeful balls towards Sam Pearson, who was on a hiding to nothing against Welling’s big back line. 

Morgan Williams rises highest. Picture courtesy of Gary Brown.

Don’t panic! With Chelmsford’s win against Truro City yesterday evening, the gap at the top is nine points with a game in hand. There’s a chance to move on quickly against Chippenham and Tuesday and with a bright cameo from Olly Thomas, we could soon have a focal point at the top of the pitch. It was hard to stomach defeat at the final whistle, and there was almost a stunned silence when proceedings came to an end. So remarkable has the home form been, that defeat was hard to take. However, we have the buffer at the top and a chasing pack that’s inconsistent. On to Tuesday!

Parkside, home of Aveley FC

When the 2023/24 end-of-season DVD is released, fans won’t be flocking to the club shop to relive their Monday night trip to Aveley. However, despite a drab affair, Ollie Marsh was just about able to muster some conclusions:

We didn’t really look like scoring… after seven minutes. When golden chances fell to Jordan Young and Alex Fisher in the opening ten, it looked like a long night was in store for Aveley. Both were played in on goal in similar fashion; Young fluffed his lines after taking way too long to pull the trigger, while Fisher put his laces through it and was thwarted by the keeper. But after that, we struggled to put together the free flowing moves we’re used to seeing. Fisher and Frank Nouble got a half each, and Young, Jordan Stevens and Dylan Morgan seemed to be chopping and changing behind them throughout, but to no avail. The combination to unlock the Millers defence couldn’t be found.

Aveley did what they did very well. It became clear early on that Aveley had been set up to nullify. They were structured, organised, and disciplined, fearlessly pressing and applying pressure whenever Yeovil had the ball. They also packed a punch on the counter-attack and could perhaps be disappointed that they couldn’t find a way to nick it. There was also a pricklier side to their game which amounted to niggly fouls and slightly excessive physicality. One aerial dual between Will Dawes and Charlee Hughes – a pantomime villain in the reverse fixture earlier this season – led to Dawes having to limp off. But they played their gameplan to near-perfection, and the home fans seemed happy with both the method and result.

The Parkside pitch can get in the bin. There won’t be too many opportunities to break the Gloverscast rule on mentioning non-traditional playing surfaces, so I’ll take full advantage here. It probably would have been better to play the game on the car park outside the stadium, rather than the football-pitch shaped stretch of concrete painted green inside it.

I’m so happy Super Joe Day’s in goal. While it was as nothingy as nothing could get after the half time, the highlights package will at least feature one clip from the second period. The fact that Joe Day had an altogether quieter evening only makes his sublime fingertip stop from Ikechi Eze’s would-be worldie in the dying embers of the game more impressive.

Four points from two away games is good going. Yeovil managed to get through two tricky away ties with a tight turnaround between them, and did so unbeaten. The win at Farnborough was great fun and this was not, but there should be no disappointment with that return overall. Mark Cooper showed that his small but perfectly formed squad had enough depth to rotate efficiently, and the results – combined with Worthing doing the business against Chelmsford – keep us well on track.

Was it ever in doubt that Yeovil Town would bounce back from a knock on the road last weekend? Nah, not for anyone who has seen this team this season. Remarkably, Dave was at Farnborough to see us get back to winning ways and here are his conclusions.

Feed the Fish:
This was a big win on the road. This maintained the 11-point lead. But this one was for Alex Fisher. He’s been very public in talking about how the road to recovery has been since that horrific injury last April and you could feel every person in that away end was genuinely delighted for him. He may not be the most prolific striker, but you cannot fault his effort and he deserved every minute of the adulation he got for a great performance. 

Can you feel the love? Fish celebrates his goal.

Bouncebackability: I wrote about it in my conclusions after the defeat at Chelmsford seven days earlier, but the most important thing was to bounce back with a performance and three points. It may not have been pretty at times, but do not underestimate the significance of these three points. If Chelmsford, Worthing or anyone else thought we were faltering – sorry, not sorry. Please mind the gap.

How good is Sonny?: Honestly, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton is such a joy to watch some times. He may get a lot of time on the ball in this division but what he does with it is sensational. With Charlie Cooper back alongside him doing the dirty work, Worthy the engine alongside him, you felt he was able to enjoy himself. Took his goal superbly and was my Man of the Match. Sorry, Fish.

Sonny Blu Lo-Everton.

48 hours later:
At the risk of sounding like a football manager, the next game is the most important. Especially as Aveley choose (according to some of their fans at least) to play on a Monday night. The window for recovery is very short and bringing off a number of players who ran their proverbials off again (well done, Sam Pearson) was important. Hopefully a fresh Jordan Young is chomping at the bit to go again after his two-match ban.

Jinx? What jinx? Okay, I’ll bite and, okay, probably not for the first time. As someone who has seen their fair share of defeats in a season when defeats have not been that common place, seeing a win was fantastic. I’ll put it next to St Albans, Truro and Taunton at home, Hampton, Worthing, Eastbourne and Tonbridge away. Plus a couple of points at Chippenham and St Albans. See you all at Braintree!

I was definitely there! All that sun glinting off my blonde hair makes it look grey!🤣

A bad day at the office for Yeovil Town at Chelmsford City yesterday as they went down 1-0 to a side now sat (12 points behind them) in second place in National League South. Dave made the trip to Essex and here’s his conclusions from him trip to the athletics stadium.

This is nothing to panic about:
First things first, our lead at the top of National League South is still 12 points. Yes, it could have more, but it is far from anything to lose our heads over. 
There is not a team in this division that would not swap places with us in a heartbeat. Chelmsford quite rightly celebrated their win and good luck to them for the rest of the season. I see they have Worthing next weekend, a draw from that one would be lovely.

Jake Wannell wins a header in the first half.

We never got going: Second things second, this was a bad day at the office for us and Chelmsford deserved their win. Was it the worst performance I’ve seen this season? I don’t know about that, Welling might take that prize, but we certainly did not show up in the way we know we can. It was not until we went more direct when Alex Fisher came on that we were did much to lay a glove on Chelmsford. I still don’t understand the logic of playing Sam Pearson through the middle, he was expected to win aerial duels against a defender who was at least a foot-and-a-half taller than him. So much more effective in wide positions in the second half. Olly Thomas back for Farnborough would be wonderful.

Come on, lino!: I know Rule #1 of the Gloverscast (if it still exists) is not to complain about referees, but what about assistants? If so, whichever of Nathan Briggs or Simon Parberry was running the right-hand line gave us absolutely nothing. There were blatant corners that were goal kicks and I look forward to seeing Fisher’s ‘goal’ from a better angle because I would trust that guy as far as I could throw him – which ain’t far! Don’t get me wrong, we were poor and Chelmsford deserved their win, but that guy was hopeless.

Joe Day pulled off some great saves to keep the scoreline down.

Super Joe Day is in goal: And thank goodness he was, because without him this could have been a more comprehensive defeat. The perils of changing ends is you never get to see what good saves he made, but I fully expect the highlights to show he made a couple of good ones. A lot more class than his opposite number in every sense of the word, as well.

Time for some bouncebackability: Was it Iain Dowie who coined the phrase ‘bouncebackability’? Whatever happened to him by the way? Anyway, excuse a typical Gloverscast tangent. But, every time we’ve had a blip (and that is all this is) this season we have bounced back and Farnborough seems a good place to do exactly that. If we can get more training in to the likes of Charlie Cooper and Alex Whittle, get Olly Thomas back again and give a couple of players a rest, that would be lovely.

On your marks! Yeovil Town fans Dom Maine and Tim Lancaster enjoyed the surroundings of the Melbourne Stadium.

Yeovil recorded an important win against Weston-super-Mare on Tuesday, here are Dave’s conclusions from watching on the stream…

Morgan on the rise. In his post-match questions, BBC Somerset reporter Ian Randall spoke about the importance of the goals Morgan Williams has scored this season – and boy did he have a point. A late equaliser at home to Chelmsford, at late winner at Worthing, a winner at Bath City, and now a vital winner against Weston-super-Mare on the night our nearest rivals slipped up. But, what is even more impressive is that this time he did it in a match when he had not played well. He was at fault for Weston’s equaliser and, at times, struggled to maintain an impressive Weston side. As Mark Cooper said afterwards, that says everything you need to know about his character. 

Picture courtesy of Gary Brown.

Missing the poophousery: The first half saw a Yeovil Town side which was too nice. Great opening 10 minutes, great opening goal, great start, then we looked soft. There was a Charlie Cooper shaped hole in the midfield and that allowed Weston to do what they wanted and they did. Things changed it the second half but let’s not underestimate the importance of a bit of poophousery.

Thanks Welling: Who loses 4-1 away at Welling, eh? Yeah, you got the joke. Mark Cooper may say he does not look at anything else other than the stats on his next opponent, but be assured he will have recognised the significance of winning on a night our nearest rivals did the opposite.

Rhys Murphy scores goals
? Gary Brown

Don’t underestimate the players we’re missing: Rhys Murphy, Jake Hyde, Charlie Cooper, Alex Whittle, Olly Thomas months of Jordan Stevens missing, how many squads in any division could hope with such absences? Take Ollie Pearce out of Worthing’s side and are they the same team? Rhys Murphy has had a similar impact on our season. It’s great to know that there’s a chance of Cooper and Whittle returning for Chelmsford with Thomas not far behind, we’re going to need them.

Saturday’s another big one: 13 points clear at the top of that table, air smells great up here, eh? But, Chelmsford this weekend will be another big examination. Over the last ten games they have the same amount of points as we do, but a lot of their success has come on the road. Get out of there unscathed and…. 


Yeovil Town picked up another win at home on a wet and windy afternoon at Huish Park yesterday. The Glovers remain ten points clear at the top of National League South. Here are Ian’s conclusions from the Press Box…

The conditions played their part. The rain wasn’t that heavy before kick off but through the afternoon it got worse and worse. Yeovil enjoyed plenty of control in the first half, but couldn’t make the possession count. You could see the pitch getting heavier and by the time the second half kicked off the sideways rain and wind was directly at Joe Day’s goal. The familiar tactic of playing out from the back and drawing our opponents in before beating the press became increasingly difficult in the second half. The weather wasn’t conducive to quality football but the Glovers did manage to create some excellent chances…

Sam Pearson. Picture courtesy of Gary Brown.

…that should have been buried. San Pearson, Frank Nouble and Jordan Stevens all had 1 v 1s with Worner in the Havant goal and should have done better. The keeper managed to save from Pearson and Stevens when they had all the time in the world to pick their spot. Nouble could only put his effort over the bar as did Pearson when Worner dropped it in the six yard box. We’re in a position (10 points clear baby!) where we can afford to be profligate in front of goal, but if we have the tiniest eye on next season, we need to be getting used to putting those type of chances in the back of the net.

Frank Nouble. Picture courtesy of Gary Brown.

Another set piece routine was the difference. After last week’s success with Jake Wannell bagging two goals from headers, yesterday’s was a very different routine. The short corner grumblers can grumble no more, as slick interplay between Pearson and Sonny Blu-Lo Everton put Sonny in acres of space to put the ball on a plate for Wannell to bundle in on the line. There will always be an element of a hopeful hoof into the mixer for someone to try and get their head on, but if you can get some of these routines in the bank, it’s an added dimension to a team that relied on that solitary goal yesterday.

The referee seemed to want his moment. I’m breaking Gloverscast Rule #1 here by bringing up the man in the middle, but I thought George Lafin had a poor game. Jordan Young should have had a penalty in the first half, after he was cut down by a Havant defender who had to go through him to get to the ball. He gave Nouble and Young bookings for kicking the ball away. Nouble’s was ridiculous and Young barely touched the ball for his after conceding a cynical foul. He was also quite willing to allow Havant the time to chew his ear off without repercussions. The assistant gave two throws to Havant which we’re clearly for Yeovil. The lack of consistency among referees from the top to the bottom of English football is far more of an issue than blue cards.

Fortress Huish was a bit muted. I’m not sure if it was the weather or that we’d not been at home for a couple of weeks but it did feel quiet from where I was. For a club that’s not lost a single match at home, it’s strange to feel a lack of atmosphere. People out there will have better ideas than I do on how to fix it. Mark Cooper alluded to it afterwards and said his players “need the fans behind us”, especially for this final run. Yeovil have fourteen matches left this season and only six of those at at Huish Park. For many, that’s just six more chances to see this team, which is on course to win the club a League title for the first time since 2005. League titles don’t come round very often, it’s time to start enjoying it!

With 15 games to go, the gap between Yeovil Town and the rest of National League South remains at ten points after a 4-2 win at Tonbridge Angels yesterday.

Dave was in the away end at the Longmead Stadium and here’s his conclusions on wjhat he saw….

Worried? Not for a second: Okay, I will not deny there were a few hairy moments in our defence after Tonbridge scored their two goals. We gave them some hope and they took, but scoring four goals away from home against a side sat in mid-table, let’s not underestimate that. Yes, our defending left a bit to be desired, but Worthing scored six and yet conceded four against a Dover side at the bottom of the league and they are the darlings of the division. Let’s just keeping on winning, boys. 

Jake Wannell was Skiverton-esque with his goals. You heard me right!
Picture courtesy of Mike Kunz.

Goals from all over: With 17 goals out injured in Rhys Murphy and Jake Hyde up front, goals will have to come from other places between now and the end of the season. So seeing Jake Wannell scoring two headers straight out of the Terry Skiverton’s playbook (yes, I went there), Dylan Morgan showing his creative quality and Young and Worthy chipping in is vital.  By my (questionable) maths, Jordan Young now has as 13 goals in all competitions – the same as Murphy.

Great to see you back Jordan: Having looked wrapped up for his previous substitute appearances, seeing Jordan Stevens’ shin pads as he took his place on the bench gave me confidence he’d see some action yesterday. As soon as the third goal went in, the outstanding Dylan Morgan was withdrawn and Stevens introduced. He showed a few turns of pace, got us worried by needing some treatment after falling heavily on his shoulder, but above gave me confidence he can still play an important part in this season.

Jordan Stevens replaced Dylan Morgan after 67 minutes.

No segregation. No problem: There’s about 15 miles between Maidstone and Tonbridge, but the difference between the way the two clubs treat away supporters could not be more different. There was no segregation at Tonbridge, unlike the set up of putting home and away fans head-to-head at Maidstone, stewarding was sensible and, funny thing, no issues. Just like there were no issues at St Albans two weeks prior where there was (again) no segregation, or the rest of the season, for that matter. Now I’m not making excuses for idiots in our fanbase at Maidstone, but to read them issue a statement – read it here – effectively saying the issue was solely with away fans is beyond delusional. No doubt the innocent little flowers who chucked bottles and coins from the Maidstone end enjoyed their Sunday morning choir practice today.

I’m beginning to believe: I’ve been trying so hard to stick to the Mark Cooper philosophy of not getting carried away, not looking at league tables, games in hand, other teams’ fixtures, and I am just about holding it together. But, this performance showed me the spirit which has got me starting to believe. Two home fixtures are to come and good results there from a tricky trip to Chelmsford and I’ll be fully converted. Champions elect ole, ole, oleeeeee!
