GLOVERS PROB­LEM LIES AT THE TOP

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

YEOVIL chair­man John Fry has warned sup­port­ers of the League Two strug­glers that the bud­get will be slashed un­less more of them come through the gates.

Last Satur­day’s de­feat by Hartle­pool was watched by just 2,749 fans at Huish Park – the low­est at­ten­dance since pro­mo­tion from the Na­tional League in 2003.

Fry says that, un­less the Glovers are in the top half by Christ­mas, he’ll cut costs. To me, that’s just breath­tak­ing.

The rea­son Yeovil are sec­ond bot­tom isn’t the fans or the man­ager. It’s a chair­man who has con­sis­tently failed to in­vest, doesn’t hand out longterm con­tracts and lurches from sea­son to sea­son with no co­her­ent plan.

Fry had a chance to build from a po­si­tion of strength when Yeovil were in the Cham­pi­onship. He blew it. Be­fore he blames oth­ers, Fry should take a long, hard look at him­self.
