The former Glovers’ player and club accountant was spotted by BBC Radio Somerset commentator Sheridan Robins helping warm-up the players ahead of the match at Huish Park.

Shortly after, the club confirmed he was “assisting Darren Sarll tonight“, now whether assisting is the same as being an assistant may be a matter requiring clarification.

Critts did have a spell as assistant at Dorchester Town where he supported Mark Jermyn which ended in 2016.

In more recent times, he was accountant at Huish Park, a role he held until the end of last year when he left to joint Ilminster-based insurance brokers, HDW Insurance.

Sarll has been without a number two since the departure of Terry Skiverton to take up a coaching role at League One side Charlton Athletic last month.

Speaking last week about a possible replacement for Skivo, Sarll said he had been speaking with a number of people about the position.

He said: “We are talking a three months job in the South West of the country and they are not going to get rich from it.

“When I got here I brought in Andrew Crofts as a player-coach (who promptly left to take up a role at Brighton), I was not going to have an assistant because of the budget at the time.

“But even that (senior player) market is not great, there’s not a raft of Carl Dickinson’s and alike out there.”
