Local firm Bamfords have been announced as the new sponsor of the Main Stand at Huish Park by new club owner Martin Hellier.

The chairman, who announced yesterday that he had completed his acquisition of the majority shareholding held by Scott Priestnall, announced the deal on his Twitter on Sunday.

He posted: “Hitting the ground running. Pleased to announce Bamfords as the Huish Park new main stand sponsors for the 23/24 season. Official announcement to follow through in due course.

The new sponsor’s website describes the business as: “With over 30 years experience, we are Somerset’s premier provider of both commercial and domestic plumbing, heating, electric and renewable energy services.

Bamfords would appear to be replacing the new owner’s business, Hellier Group, as sponsor of the Main Stand. It signed a three-year contract in September 2022.

This is interesting because the Hellier signs on Yeovil Court Hotel have been replaced by Bamfords. Has Hellier sold the hotel and land to Bamfords? To fund the purchase of YTFC? And now Bamfords turns up as main stand sponsor while Hellier is still contracted.

Which in turn says he doesn’t have as much money as first led us to believe
