This Saturday’s game against Stockport will be the final one in green and white for Carl Dickinson and Manager Darren Sarll took time to praise his left back who has been a real leader for the club since his arrival.

“It is going to be impossible to replace Carl Dickinson. Everyone tells me what he can’t do, but he has played so many games and hardly ever gets roasted, maybe one in five someone gives him a bit of a lesson in athleticism. A brilliant character.”

Dicko has accepted a Player/Manager role at Hanley Town closer to his base in Stoke.

“He is magnificent and someone I will never fall out of touch with. He is a brilliant guy and a top player and the way he and Lee (Collins) led my first two years in the changing room has been incredible. We have had many a conversation on his new job, how difficult it is going to be and how old he is going to look in the next six months!”

“We will always stay in touch, we have a very close relationship because he has to embody the manager. I thank him from the bottom of my heart. He is a born winner and he will want to go out with a win (against Stockport County this weekend).”

The former Port Vale legend joined the Glovers in League Two but spent time training with his former club after being exiled from the set up at Huish Park under former Manager Darren Way.

“The only blip on his Yeovil career is the time he wasn’t allowed to help keep us up and that is something that is a real shame and obviously still grates with him. He was willing to come back and give his all in a league lower which was wonderful and just typifies the man.”

Carl Dickinson leaves very big boots to fill and whoever does done the number 3 shirt next season – and the Captain’s armband – has a very tough act to follow.

Thanks for everything, Carl, from everyone here at the Gloverscast and every, single Yeovil Town fan.
