GLOVERS ON MONDAY: What happened on this day in Yeovil Town’s history on September 11?
WELCOME to the Glovers on Monday feature where on each Monday of the week during the football season we will be delving into the recent archives of Yeovil Town FC to find what happened on the corresponding day in years gone by.
Our search goes from the 1987-1988 season, the year Yeovil won the Vauxhall-Opel Premier League, up to the present day and we will look back at the games featured on this particular day in history.
Today we are looking back at what happened down the years on September 11.
