Carl Dickinson captained the side in the Glovers’ 3-0 loss to Wrexham but in doing so, reached a special milestone in the Green and White.

Dicko has now played 100 times for the Glovers since joining the club in June 2018.

 

The left-back, who turned 34 in March, will leave the club at the end of the season to take up the reigns at Hanley Town in a player-manager role.

The former Stoke City man can make it to 105 appearances for the Glovers should he play in each of the final five games of the season, but here’s a quick breakdown of his 100 games for Yeovil.

Games 100
League Games: 90 (86 starts)
FA Cup Games: 4
EFL Cup Games: 1
EFL Trophy Games: 2
FA Trophy Games: 2
National League Play Off Games; 1

Dickinson has scored twice for the Glovers, his first was the final goal in a 6-0 demolition of Newport County, a direct free-kick that went in thanks to some questionable goalkeeping and then just just three games later in a 3-1 loss to Crawley Town.

Some very quick maths suggests that Dicko has played in 39 wins, 20 draws (including cup games that went beyond 90 minutes) and in 41 losses.

Of course, the qualities he has brought to Huish Park go far beyond numbers, a wonderful left back, a vastly experienced campaigner who now passes three figures for the same club for the second time in his career after getting beyond the century for Port Vale.

He has led the side by example, a no nonsense, never give up, style defender who’ll whip a cross in with finesse and then boot the opposition winger into the car park – all totally legally of course!

Let’s not forget, this is a man who did not play a minute for us between a 2-0 League Two defeat at MK Dons on March 23, 2019 and the end of the season which ultimately cost us our place in the Football League.

Yet, he stuck around when he undoubtedly had other options and became a mainstay ofย Darren Sarll’sย side which reached the National League play-offs last season.

There’s no doubt in the Gloverscast mind, that Yeovil Town have been miles better for having Dickinson in the side, than not.

Huge congratulations on a wonderful achievement, Carl, from everyone at the Gloverscast.
