The statement said: “Yeovil Town can confirm the departure of Glenn Collis as a club director with immediate effect.

“Collis, who has been a board member since February 2020, departs with our best wishes. All at Yeovil Town thank Glenn for his hard work during his time at the football club.

“Chairman Scott Priestnall is currently assembling a new board of directors ready for the 2022/23 season which include prominent local business people.

“We will issue a further update on board appointments in due course.

It concluded confirming the chairman will appear on the Gloverscast next week to “discuss club matters” and we can confirm we are scheduled to speak with him on Thursday evening with the recording released on Friday morning.

Collis, 41, joined as a director in February 2020 and was appointed a director of Yeovil Town Football & Athletic Club and Yeovil Town Holdings, the companies which own the club’s football operations and Huish Park stadium and the land surrounding the stadium respectively.

The announcement came hours after news broke that South Somerset District Council is close to completing a deal to buy the assets of both businesses and lease them back to the club. Find out more about that deal – here.

The Glovers’ Trust has launched a petition calling for the council to drop the deal which it describes as “a potentially catastrophic decision“. The petition is available to sign and share – here.
