Yeovil Town Manager Darren Sarll has been speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins following a quite frankly bonkers night in the FA Cup.

The Glovers progressed through to the first round proper after beating W*ymouth 2-1 on penalties.

You can read the round up of the carnage here. 

Following the game, Sarll said that he would have loved to have had the game finished off sooner, (our fingernails, would agree, Darren!)

“We didn’t take some of the chances we created in normal time and Joe (Quigley)’s penalty [in the 120th minute] was a disappointment, we could have just settled it.

Then the penalties went our way, their way, our way, their way, our way, their way  – RETAKE – their way, our way, their way*… so… it’s a ridiculous night”

There was pandemonium at the end as fans and players celebrated after the full time whistle, something Sarll won’t forget in a hurry.

“It’s a wonderful experience for these young people to have, and the performance was good… we played very well tonight, the only fault I have is that we didn’t take more chances, I thought the attacking play was good.”

“It was a good one (moment with the fans at the end), I just wish it was done sooner, we could have been done and tucked up in bed, it was a really taxing evening”

Yeovil will travel to either Yate Town or Dover in the first round, and will play Grimsby away on Saturday in the league.

* that was NOT easy to transcribe
