Below, Chairman of the Association Mark Kelly looks forward to the second year of YTISA:
"The Yeovil Town Independent Supporters Association is now approaching its second season with great
anticipation. We are hopeful that, after a very successful first season, our membership
numbers will increase and make us the most widely used supporters association at Yeovil Town Football Club.
"When we originally founded the association, our aims were to raise funds that could be piled directly back into
the cluband provide members with independent travel to away games. We surpassed all our initial expectations and are delighted to report
that the association has made donations totalling £1596 since it's foundation in the summer of 1999. We also have a healthy bank balance of
£1119.57, which will be used to purchase kit bags and training tops for new players, to match those already supplied to existing squad members.
"Sometime in the not too distant future we hope to arrange a meeting that all members will be invited to, in order to discuss issues
surrounding the association and gather members' ideas for future events. It will be an opportunity for members' to be formally introduced to
the YTISA committee and to meet other members who may, in time, become regular travel companions.
"At present YTISA take mini-buses to all away games and for games prompting a larger interest a full-sized coach. A good time is usually had by all
and members benefit by receiving reduced travel costs. This season a full-size coach will be arranged for all games
providing there is enough demand.
"In February 2000, members of YTISA launched a fanzine entitled 'Independent Barmy Army'. This has
gone from strength to strength and provides a valuable source of income for the association. We are keen
that our members have an input into the fanzine and therefore contributions are welcomed.
"Please feel free to submit any articles to S. Brimble c/o 233 St Johns Road, Yeovil, Somerset BA21 5QR or by Email
at firstname.lastname@example.org. Articles can consist of your views on current issues within the club, or stories
telling of your adventures when following Yeovil Town.
"Finally, the committee would like to thank all our members for their support and everyboby else who has given us help and encouragement
throughout the season."
