As it’s Christmas tomorrow we thought it would be nice to share with you what we’d like for Christmas this year. As regular listeners to The Gloverscast will know, there’s three of us who like to chew the cud about our beloved football club and each of us have shared what we’d like left under the tree this year.
Ian: After a largely torrid couple of years as a Yeovil Town supporter 2021 is shaping up to finish rather well. The turnaround since October’s dismal run at Huish Park is a distant memory and our excellent form has given us a rather odd feeling of comfort and confidence. I don’t think I can recall feeling this way since the run in of the 2012/13 season – and we all know what happened there.
So, on tomorrow I would love to wake up to a carefully, extravagantly wrapped present containing more of the same please! Darren Sarll has worked miracles in spite of the off-pitch situation and has made this team one to be proud of. Keep it up lads, and let’s dream the impossible dream!
Dave: One of us had to take it off the pitch, so I would love to see a second half of the season where every fan wants to go to Huish Park.
We go in to Christmas Day with talks about takeover still bubbling, still concerns about the financial situation of the club, and still silence from those involved in these discussions.
So, rather than sending a letter to Santa this year, I would love to see one from someone in charge of our club with passion, a plan to improve the supporter experience and plot a course for further 125 years of a football club at the heart of its community.
I’ve been a very good boy this year. Could I please ask for some nice things, not for me though, for my friends.
Can you please help Darren, Terry, Josh, Charlie, Tom, Grant, Max, Luke, Jordan, Adi and others get new contracts at Huish Park.
They’ve all worked so hard to bring joy to Glovers fans and I would like to see them rewarded.
I have such fun watching these players and would like the chance to see what this group can build not just for the remainder of this season but beyond. I’d hate for us to fall just short of our targets and not get the chance to see what they could achieve if given the chance to grow as a unit. I don’t want this squad picked off by other teams? I don’t want my friends to get broken up, we all have so much fun together.
Can you also ask if our new friends, Dan, Sonny and Jack can play with us a bit longer please? I know their parents think a lot of them, but they really do make things better.
Thanks, and Merry Christmas
Ben, age 33 ¾
We’d like to wish our Gloverscast listeners and readers a very Merry Christmas, and all the best for 2022.
