Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper has said that his future at Huish Park depends on “which consortium” takes control of the club.

The boss was asked about his future ahead of the weekend’s final home match of the season against Oldham Athletic tomorrow and indicated there was more than one group in the running to take charge.

Up until this point it appeared that only one group, SU Glovers led by owner-in-waiting Matt Uggla, was in the running to take over a majority shareholding from current owner Scott Priestnall, but Cooper’s comments suggest at least one other party is involved.

Asked if he had any news on the deal, he said: “We have not heard anything. When you get told it is done or that it is going to get done in the next 24 hours or 48 hours and that does not happen for another few months, there is going to be huge frustration.

I just feel sorry that the club from where it was (in the Championship ten years ago) it is such a shame. We need to start planning now to get back and the first part of that is trying to build a squad that can win a lot of games in National League South next year.

Then, asked about whether he saw himself having a future at the club, Cooper added: “That remains to be seen. I have two years left on my contract, but contracts don’t mean a lot, do they? So that will depend on which consortium gets the football club I would think.

Now you are probably thinking, what question was asked next to clarify the comment around a new potential buyer. We’re thinking it as well. The Gloverscast has not been invited to a Yeovil Town pre-match press conference for a number of months.
