‘I’m heartbroken’ – Many Yeovil fans mourn the loss of their Football League status

Yeovil were relegated into the National League yesterday with one match left to play.

The topsy-turvy relegation battle seemed to have taken a real turn when they went 2-0 up at Northampton, with both Notts County and Macclesfield drawing at the time.

Sadly, Notts and Macclesfield both went on to win their matches, whilst two second half goals killed Yeovil’s chances of survival, although some might suggest that happened when they gave Darren Way a new contract in November, rather than just sacking him.

They’ve been a Football League side for 16 seasons but after a dire campaign in which they’ve consistently found themselves outclassed, they now face a stay in the fifth tier.

The National League is a very different beast to the division they emerged from just after the turn of the century, with big-spending sides competing with former Football League clubs and well run wannabe sides.

As you’d expect, news of their relegation has not been well received and whenever a side goes down, there’s recriminations. Their media team put out a message apologising and claiming the club had let the fans down when it needed most.

That’s like a red rag to a bull under these circumstances, as you’ll read below.
