WELCOME TO YTFC.DIGITAL

Welcome back to ytfc.digital the clubs dedicated Digital Archive web site.

For those of you who have visited the site before you will notice some changes and additions to the site since your last visit. 

We have had to make some major changes to the content management system over the last few months which has resulted in almost a complete rebuild of the site which has necessitated the site being off line for a few months.

We sincerely hope this has not inconvenienced you too much, but we are back now and do not anticipate and further periods off line.

But whilst the content management system is now working well it's not the end of all the work. There are over 263,000 pictures on the site and all these have to be edited and where necessary rotated to name but one job!

Work will continue now at a pace with a view to the site being completed by the projected end date of the project at the end of 2018.

If you have any comments or ideas for the improvement of the site please don't hesitate to contact us you can find details on the Contact us link.

 

A digital history archive of Yeovil Town Football Club

Football has been played in Yeovil since 1895, initially under the guise of Yeovil Casuals, then Petters United, Yeovil and Petters United before finally adopting the Yeovil Town Football Club name at the resumption of football end of the second world war.

For a club with a history such as ours, it seems that, apart from Kerry Miller’s magnificent history “Hendford to Huish”, no official history of this great club has ever been established.

After nearly fifteen years as Head of Media, along with a team of volunteers I have undertaken to create a digital history of our club in my retirement years.

Over my time at the club I have amassed over a quarter of a million pictures, along with numerous newspapder cuttings, programmes, shirts etc etc.

Add to that more recently, video clips and books, and you will begin to realise just how much material is available about our beloved Green and White’s.

The whole project will not be completed quickly, in fact I see it rather like painting the Forth Bridge-never ending, but funding for a minimum of two years development work has been acquired thanks to various generous local individuals, groups and organisations and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

What you are about to view is the very early stage of the web site’s life with additions, changes and details being added continuously.

If you, as a Glovers supporter, would like to volunteer your services to assist our existing group then please contact us on ytfcarchive@gmail.com.

Any articles, newspaper cuttings, photographs or indeed anything that you think should be included in this important part of Yeovil Town Football Club’s history, then please contact us on the e mail address above.

The club would like this Archive to ultimately become the ONLY reference point for anything Yeovil Town, but if you have any observations or suggestions to make the site better please let us know.

Different sections can always be added as we build the site and plans are already in place to include an audio library of all of your best memories of the club.

We are also very proud to be working with staff and volunteers at Yeovil District Hospital Foundation Trust helping patients with dementia with their treatment through the glorious memories that our great football club can evoke

So please enjoy, help if you can and above all remember the Forth Bridge example as we build on the site in the years ahead.
