A charity match scheduled to be held at Huish Park to raise funds for a charity in memory of former Yeovil Town striker Adam Stansfield has been postponed.

Organisers Kevin Gall and Abby Carter posted on the event’s Facebook page that the “ongoing uncertainty” around the COVID-19 pandemic had caused them to delay the match until May 2022.

It had been hoped the game between a team of former Glovers’ favourites and a South West Legends XI could have been staged in pre-season of the upcoming 2021-22 season.

The statement said: “As you all know we have been working tirelessly to get this game and event on for Stanno but due to the ongoing uncertainty of Covid 19 restrictions and fans and some circumstances out of our control it looks like we will have to postpone the game from this pre-season where we hoped to stage the game until May 2022 at the end of the coming season.”

The Yeovil Town Legends team will be made up of members of the side which won promotion to the Football League in 2003 and League Two in 2013.
