Save the ‘net zero’ jokes, we’ve heard them all already! But, yes, Yeovil Town appear to have formed a partnership with Net Zero World to become net zero.

The company, which was sold by Paul Sackey to new owner Benjamin Matley last month, made the announcement on its Instragram account on Monday night whilst we were all busily trying to figure out what kind of a standard Lyon’s reserves play at.

The post read: “We are so excited to announce our new partnership with @ytfcofficial. We’re looking forward to support he club achieve their goal of becoming the first Net Zero National League team.

The club’s official Instagram account responded to the post with: “Welcome to the YTFC family.” So it’s safe to suggest this is legit.

Not to get too science-y, but becoming net zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible, with any remaining emissions re-absorbed from the atmosphere. It is different to carbon neutral which is about removing carbon dioxide, and counts for any harmful greenhouse gases.
