The Glovers Trust have been made aware that representatives of Scott Priestnall and South Somerset District Council are engaged in the process of completing the deal which was approved by SSDC in December 2020. SSDC are restricted from announcing any decision due to the upcoming local elections and the deal can be completed without scrutiny.

We believe that any deal with the council that would see Yeovil Town Football Club become tenants in our own stadium is a potentially catastrophic decision for the long term security and viability of our club. While the deal will almost certainly benefit the council and Scott Priestnall, we are concerned that there will not be the safeguards in place to ensure the football club will see any benefit from the deal, or ever be in a position to buy the assets back. We also do not believe this is a responsible use of taxpayers money.

We believe that Scott Priestnall, through his action, inaction, and silence over his tenure, has not earned the trust of supporters, to allow him to make this decision unchallenged. We call on all supporters, supporter groups, and local residents to voice their opposition to this deal. United we have a loud voice. We want to make sure that voice is heard.


We want to make sure that both South Somerset District Council, and Scott Priestnall know your thoughts. We will continue to communicate with supporters in the coming days and weeks to suggest other action we might take to protect our club.
