Level Playing Field “Weeks of Action”
At the home game,Yeovil v Wrexham on 29 February, the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust were pleased to support the YTFC Disabled Supporters Association by celebrating the Level Playing Field “Weeks of Action” together with launching the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyards. As part of the day, DSA members Callum & Clayton along with Callum’s brother and friend, were treated to a stadium tour, lunch and the opportunity to take part in the pre-match warm up, before leading the Glovers out onto the hallowed turf and taking part in the coin toss with the referee prior to kick off.
The DSA were also present upstairs in the main stand and in the marquee before the match, displaying what the DSA can offer.
****Owing to the Coronavirus pandemic****
****All DSA events have been cancelled until further notice****
On 30 March, Simon Woodland (YTFC DSA Treasurer/Vice-Chair) delivered 62 Easter eggs and many other goodies, that the DSA had purchased for our upcoming Easter Bingo event that we had to cancel, to Yeovil hospital, to be given out on the children’s ward. #Staysafesttayin - Achieve by unity.
The DSA were asked by Thomas O Macrae if we could help him so he can come back to YTFC with his friends and enjoy the football and banter he misses.
Thomas suffers from Stenosis of the spine. This is where the disc in the spine bulges into the spinal cord and make his legs numb with pins and needles 24/7 OUCH!!!!
Thomas asked if we had an ergonomic kneeling chair available for him to use on match days in our DSA box, as this is the only way he can stay still for long periods and without it he cannot attend games.
Unfortunately, we had never heard of one, but with pointers from Thomas we have purchased one that will be kept in the DSA box for anyone to use. The ergonomic kneeling chair reduces lower back pain by distributing the body's weight more evenly by dividing the burden of one's weight between the shins and the buttocks.
We look forward to welcoming Thomas back to Huish Park on the 29th of February when we play Wrexham.
Thomas has agreed to us using his name and photo to promote the DSA and said, “I would like to say thank you for your help and support in helping me out. Now I can attend some games in relative comfort, so thank you”.

New Wheelchairs purchased
The DSA have worked hard over the years to purchase and maintain wheelchairs for use at the club. Following a conversation with new owner Errol Pope, the club have very generously purchased six new wheelchairs to replace our old wheelchairs which were in need of a full makeover. We would like to thank Mr Pope and YTFC for their support.
Hospitality Box in the Tamburino Stand
YTFC have kindly allowed us use of a Hospitality Box to keep our members warm and dry.
The box is located right next to the lift. Places are on a first come, first served basis.
Please contact Sharon Swain: 07790 375250 to reserve your place.
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

What a brilliant idea to put on a cooked breakfast, at Huish Park, for all the travelling fans. It is highly recommended before an away trip
