Jack Hellier, the son of Yeovil Town chairman, Martin, has been appointed a director of Yeovil Football & Athletic Club, according to the company’s latest filing on Companies House.

The 21-year-old, a regular fixture at Huish Park since the takeover last May, was confirmed in the role through an update on Friday.

His appointment follows the termination of the appointment of former Commercial Director Mark Robinson as a director. His departure was announced by another filing earlier this week.

Wow, bet he’s going to contribute a lot to the club. What a joke.

Jack designed and conceived the fan zone you enjoy. Single handedly blow torched the seats you sit on and quadrupled the hospitality income. I’m glad it brought you so much humour.

I don’t enjoy the fanzone, nor do I sit in the stands. I watch from afar because I won’t put money into your pocket Martin. You may have ‘saved’ the club but you are on an ego trip and are a bully. No need to issue me a ban like all the kids you dish one out to because you won’t even know who I am.

What’s that all about and why did the other guy go?

is he fresh out of University with a first class honours degree in business management? Or is it just because he’s the owners son ..
Does he have anything to contribute to the club apart from being good at painting seats and maybe pulling pops outs of a fight or two..
Some fans are cheering him on but I’ve no idea why .. can someone enlighten us.

I didn’t even finish school. Should I not be there either?

Were you given a Director’s job at 21?

No. I became my own boss at 16. There’s a few self motivation books on Amazon if you need to catch up.

Martin, you made your money and earned it, this gave you the ability to buy (and save) the club. Many, including myself, are very thankful for that. I sincerely hope Jack is a success. I suggest it’s not unusual for fans to question the appointment of your son as a Director when the business is a football club. As you yourself very nicely put it, it is a community asset. Fans will raise questions, hopefully we will be proved wrong.

So far so good, do not give fans something to complain about. There is no victory online, only through success on the pitch and off it. So far you’re winning. Appreciation is quieter than praise, but it is there.

Good luck to Mr Hellier’s son. I imagine it will just be like a “Director Apprenticeship” kind of thing. He’ll probably have to work 10 times as hard as anyone else to prove that he’s good to some supporters. I fully believe he can do it.
