Why this petition matters

Started by The Gloverscast

To Mr Priestnall,

What is happening to our football club?

For more than 125 years, Yeovil Town FC has been at the heart of the community. Under your custodianship, our beloved community club is falling apart and dying in front of our eyes.

We deserve answers as to why, under your leadership, the club is on the brink.

What is your plan for the future of the football club? On 5 December, you gave prospective bidders a seven day deadline before you would unveil your vision for the football club. It’s April and we’ve seen no sign of this vision.

This season we have lost Terry Skiverton and Darren Sarll. Two men who carried the club and its players through one of the darkest moments in the history of the football club. How do you plan to replace them?

Heading into next season, we have one contracted player and an interim manager for the 'foreseeable future'. Have you begun discussions with any of the players, who have performed admirably this season?

You can cite the ongoing takeover situation as a reason for the uncertainty, but you are the owner of Yeovil Town Football Club. 

You are the individual who bears responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the football club. As the Chairman of the club, your neglectful ownership is destroying the only professional football club in Somerset. 

Is that something you really want to be your legacy as a businessman?

As Yeovil Town Supporters, we implore you to tell us what is happening with our football club, please.

Yours faithfully,

The Supporters of Yeovil Town FC
