Chairman Martin Hellier has revealed that barrister Rhys Rosser and commercial manager Mark Robinson will join the Yeovil Town board.

In an early morning post on his Twitter account on Thursday, the owner said the appointments followed the support of his barrister in his acquisition of a majority shareholding in the club from former owner Scott Priestnall earlier this month.

He also praised the commitment of Robinson who has been at the club since he joined from Dorchester Town in December 2019.

In the post, the chairman said: “Just a bit of late night news that WILL follow through on official channels. I appoint Rhys Rosser, my barrister, as fellow director and a consummate professional. For all my ambitions, thank Rhys, he got it over the line and he will sit next to me as my brother. He made it happen.

Mark Robinson, who worked seven days a week, from selling sponsorship to cooking chickens for corporate events only to keep our club going, is also, now a Director, and thank them, for making it happen.

Rhys Rosser is an experienced barrister working at The Chambers of Brian Altman QC and Jim Sturman QC, and was also a contestant in the Junior Apprentice as a 17-year-old back in 2010.

Mark Robinson is a more familiar face to Glovers’ fans having replaced the long-serving Dave Linney at Huish Park more than three years ago. Prior to his arrival, he was General Manager at Dorchester Town having previously worked as an engineer for brewing giant, Carlsberg.

The pair will join the new owner and Stuart Robins, who owns a 20% stake in the club’s trading business, Yeovil Football & Athletic Club Limited, as directors of the club.

We await for the Companies House records for the business to be updated. They presently still show former owner Priestnall as a director. There has been no update on the future of either Robins or Chief Executive Martyn Starnes, although neither feature on the ‘Who’s Who?’ page of the club’s official website which Starnes was previously shown on.

Perhaps when the appointments hit the official channels, there will be more.

Martyn Starnes might no longer be on the official YTFC website, but Grant Smith is still our keeper! Things are looking up for next season, Charlie Wakefield hasn’t left, either!
