Two new sponsors and a fresh new look to Huish Park has been unveiled as the first (and only) pre-season friendly of the campaign draws nearer.

On Friday, Commercial Director Mark Robinson unveiled car dealership Vertu Motors as the sponsor of a impressive new look for the dug-out area at the club and Dorset Vehicle Rentals as sponsors of the Copse Road away terrace and back of the shirt sponsor for the upcoming season.

It was the new dug-outs which really caught the eye of supporters when pictures were posted on social media with two rows of modern-looking seating replacing the old-style dug outs which have been at the stadium since it opened more than 30 years ago!

You don’t have to be a self-confessed fan of pitchside furniture to say they look lovely!

The club’s announcement of the partnership with Vertu Motors, which has a Land Rover dealership just down the road from Huish Park, promises to bring “mutual benefits” for the two parties.

Robert McGarva, Head of Business at Vertu Yeovil Land Rover, added: “This collaboration allows us to further engage with our customers and showcase our commitment to excellence in both automotive and community-driven initiatives.

We’ve no idea what an ‘automotive initiative’ is, Robert, but if it means anything like those dugouts, we’re all for it!

Dorset Vehicle Rentals has been a familiar face among the sponsors at Huish Park for a number of years and its branding now adorns the away terrace and the back of shirts which will be worn for the upcoming campaign.

Adam Young, the company’s Head of Rental Operations, described the agreement as “a proud moment” for the company which has bases in Yeovil, Dorchester…..and somewhere just south of Dorchester which we won’t talk about.

He added: “As a local brand, it is important for us to celebrate our community, and what better way than showing our support for Yeovil Town Football Club with such a big statement.

We are great, long-term supporters of the team and we wish them the best of luck this coming season.

On behalf of us here at the Gloverscast and, judging from the reaction of supporters on social media, we say a huge ‘well done’ to everyone involved in these deals – add that to the feel good factor pile!

It looks nice but I wonder if the dug-outs will have a roof to protect players and staff from the rain and from the fans behind them.
