Yeovil Town Manager, Darren Sarll made a guest appearance on the Early Doors Football Podcast this week and was asked a pretty bold question about the ambitions the Glovers still have for this season.

Sarll admitted that whilst he’s not looking that far ahead, he did admit that he still wanted to be involved in the promotion picture by the end of the season.

“It is a little bit more complex for us now because of the size of the squad and the age of the squad, we have to be a little bit more short term – week to week, game to game”

“The first year I was there, we had a team ready to get promoted, we finished fourth and lost in the play-offs.

The team the following year underperformed and we were struck by tragedy with the passing of our captain, so it was a horrible, horrible season.

“This year is completely… it’s like new ground for everyone, if we can turn the calender year in the top half and can welcome the injured and experienced players back in, like Mark Little, like Reuben Reid and Luke Wilkinson – the three most experienced players in our squad, then we’d have a really good shot at making that Play-Off group and that’s what this group are aiming for”

Bold words from the Gaffer, but he could have told us here on the Gloverscast first!!!
