A very special club for me, Yeovil Town built an exciting reputation as one of the country’s best known non-league club’s with a wonderful FA Cup record. I was lucky enough to have been invited to join chairman Brian Moore’s board of directors at a difficult time as the club’s move to Huish Park was threatening the club’s future financially. I enjoyed a memorable seven years and have since admired the hard work that has seen the club develop.

The club survived and with some excellent managerial selections, Yeovil Town’s old reputation as a cup giant killer has changed into the much admired first ex-non-league club to have qualified for membership of The Football League Championship.T.W.
