Yeovil Town v

By Jake Wykes (Scunthorpe United
We had won our last
three league games, do confidence going into this
game was high. Also I had never been to Yeovil so
it was another ground to tick off the list!
I travelled on our supporters coach down to
Yeovil, which due to a local benefactor had been
provided free of charge. As we neared Yeovil I
noticed that the ground was well signposted. The
coach was parked behind the away terrace.
Before the game we went to see the Yeovil players
come off the team coach. I then bought a match
programme and had a walk to the away end. I went
inside put our flag up and took our seats. The
home fans seemed friendly enough.
My first impression of the away end of the ground
was "I've seen better" But that was the terrace.
The covered stand to our right where the
Scunthorpe fans had a section of covered seating
was a far better sight.
The game was very poor from a Scunthorpe fans
views. After a five hour journey on the coach, we
only saw a total of two shots on target from us!
I've got to admit we got played off the park from
one of the best team's we've come across this
season. No real excuses but the pitch was possibly
the worst I have seen for a long time. Goals from
Webster, Hayter and Madden made the result 3-0 to
Yeovil. The atmosphere wasn't the best. Yeovil had
the occasional chant once they scored. Also we
wasn't in the best voice ever. 155 travelled down.
But we didn't have anything to get excited about.
The stewards were one of the best I've come across
so far this season! Friendly and had a good chat
with them. The pies were good and the facilities
weren't too bad either.
After the game it took us a good 20 minutes to get
away from the stadium, due to the congested
traffic. But once we got out it was a good
The day itself was a good day with all the fellow
fans. But the performance from Scunthorpe wasn't
great. We need to play a lot better if we want to
still be in League One next season. I would be
happy to visit Yeovil again for sure!
