GLOVERS MEMORIES: 25 years ago today on January 2, 1993
YEOVIL Town lost 3-1 at Huish Park to Arsenal in the FA Cup Third Round on this day in history 25 years ago.
The Gunners starting XI on Saturday, January 2, 1993, was packed with international players and it was striker Ian Wright who grabbed the headlines with a hat-trick which secured a comfortable passage through to the Fourth Round for the North London giants.
Yeovil did get a late consolation goal when Paul Batty netted a penalty.
But the bigger picture was a much bigger one for Yeovil Town. The revenue secured from the Arsenal tie had secured the club’s future which had looked so bleak with the Glovers having terrible financial problems.
A crowd of 8,612 was at the ground for the match.
