On the 18th of May, it will be 15 years since one of the most iconic nights in Yeovil Town’s history took place. Our famous 5-2 victory at The City Ground lives long in the memory of supporters and a goalscorer on the night, Lee Morris.
Speaking to the Gloverscast on the newest edition of the Glovers Past series, Morris talked fondly of his time at Huish Park and in great detail of that amazing night.
Despite the absence of the ‘leader of men’, Terry Skiverton, throughout the playoff campaign, Morris was always confident that the Glovers would overturn the 2-0 deficit.
He said: “We had big personalities all over the field, Mildy (Steve Mildenhall) was a big character in goal. Forbesy (Terrell Forbes) was a brilliant lad you’d do anything for. Jonesy (oh come on you know!) on one side, and Lindy, the local lad who was Mr Yeovil on the other. Chris in the the middle of the park and Davo came alive in them games.
“I think all over the pitch, you looked around and looked at everybody and thought, ‘yeah I believe he’s going to make something happen here’, I believe he’s gonna be strong and he’s gonna keep going.’
“We had enough personality out there that I certainly believed, all the way through, that someone could come up with something, you know.”
They sure came up with something in the end.
