Yate Town

Yate Town manager Criag Laird faces the new season well prepared after a busy pre-season programme. The League schedule starts with a trip to Evesham on August 8.
The team performed well in their first friendly at Premier Division Weymouth but narrowly lost the game 2-0.  However they faired better on their travels, winning 3-0 at Western League Shepton Mallet and 2-1 at Cribbs.
Two further matches against Premier Division opposition Hungerford and
Bath City have prepared the team for a very busy first month involving seven scheduled games.  They include a local derby against Mangotsfield on Bank Holiday Monday.
Behind the scenes a group of volunteers has been working to bring improvements to Lodge Road, including a refurbished and redecorated hospitality lounge as well as an updated and relocated Club Shop and Kit Room. There are also new state of the art goalposts and improved pitch side technical areas.  August Fixtures
