Football: Yeovil prepare for a return trip to summit
Saturday 25 September 1999
The Somerset side will have another chance to displace Stevenage Borough, who are ahead on goal difference, from the top of the league when they travel to lowly Telford United today. Yeovil enjoyed a brief spell leading the Conference, for the first time in their history, earlier this month.
The good news this week for Yeovil has come off the pitch. They have earned pounds 27,000 from the pounds 250,000 sale of their former striker, Howard Forinton, from Birmingham City to Peterborough United. Colin Lippiatt, the Huish Park side's head coach, has strengthened his squad by signing the former Southampton midfielder Paul Tisdale, who played in the European Cup-Winners' Cup quarter-finals last season for the Greek club Panionios.
Stevenage have a tough game today at home to Kingstonian. The other key fixture in the Conference sees third-placed Hednesford Town entertain fifth-placed Rushden & Diamonds.
The former Torquay United manager Stuart Morgan has been dismissed as manager of the Dr Martens League Premier Division club, Dorchester Town. The decision was made after last weekend's 3-0 FA Cup second qualifying round defeat at the Screwfix Direct League side Taunton Town.
