It wasn’t a good night for Yeovil as the Glovers crashed out of the Somerset Men’s Premier Cup at the hands of Paulton Rovers, however a record was broken on the night.

Ollie Haste became the youngest player in history to lead Yeovil Town out in a men’s first team fixture as captain.

The youngster, at just 18 years and 10 months old broke the record held by goalkeeper Nathan Baxter back in 2019 when he was named skipper for a game in League Two at the age of a little over 20.

Our very own historical oracle, Nigel Dyson failed to find any younger captains, neither could we… so we are calling it a new record.

Huge congratulations to Ollie, and his family, for this brilliant achievement.
