Yeovil Town chairman Scott Priestnall has said he expects supporters to see a “more inviting and entertaining” Huish Park stadium when they return for the new National League season.

In an update on the eve of the club’s first home pre-season friendly against League Two side Forest Green Rovers, the chairman confirmed the club was planning to have “a new bar area” behind the Thatcher’s Gold Terrace.

He also said the club was overhauling its matchday hospitality with a refresh of executive boxes and three-course meals with table service offering “good quality food and service” overlooking the pitch would be available.

In an update alongside manager Darren Sarll on the club’s YouTube channel, the chairman said: “All the promises we made in the first year that we were not able to implement in the last part of the first year or in the second year, we are now going to try and implement.

“With new bars and different areas people can go to, de-boarding the boardroom and trying to make it more fan-orientated and making it an exciting place to come.

“That has to be done off the pitch as well as on it because we want people to enjoy their experience again.

“A lot of changes are coming in bit by bit, but as we see the season start you will see a very different Huish Park, more inviting and more entertaining.”

Priestnall also said the club was “ahead of schedule” in terms of season ticket sales as he updated supporters on the situation regarding the potential sale of the club’s stadium in a deal with South Somerset District Council.

He said: “There’s been some negativity around (season ticket sales), but supporters that want to see this club succeed are doing their talking by buying season tickets.

Darren Sarll added: “I am not surprised we are ahead of season tickets, the true quality of our club always steps forward in spite of anything else.

“We unified and united under some difficult circumstances last year on and off the pitch.”
