Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll has said the club’s finances are left to Chairman Scott Priestnall.

The boss was asked by the Gloverscast reporter Ben Barrett about the club’s announcement of a new £112,000 loan from Sport England at his weekly press conference ahead of the weekend’s fixture against FC Halifax Town.

He said: “There are people at the club like Scott (Priestnall) and James Hillier (the stadium manager) to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. That is the dynamic.

“I have no idea about the economic state of the organisation, that is their job to worry about those types of things.

“My job is to source the best players as cheaply as we can and get as much out of them as we can, win with him, maybe sell them as we have done in recent years.

“If I start crossing over to that other side, that is quite dangerous for a manager.

As we reported earlier in the week, the club confirmed it has increased the amount it owes to Sport England to  £801,538.

In a statement, the club said the additional finance will will cover “lost revenue from last season’s lockdown period” enabling it to pay “costs and creditors from last season.”

The statement was published after the new charge was made public through a Companies House filing made by Yeovil Town Holdings Limited, signed by Chairman Scott Priestnall and Director Glenn Collis.
