Yeovil fans didn’t arrive at Barrow game until half time after coach broke down on M6 motorway

Yeovil Town fans were already dreading the long 12-hour, 620-miles trip to Barrow on Saturday, but it was made even longer for them as their coach broke down on the M6.

As they made their way up north on Saturday, a broken gearbox meant fans had to wait in Warrington to find out whether they could get to one of their furthest trips of the season on time of the game starting.

However a replacement coach ended up picking them up and arrived at Holker Street with the National League match already at half-time.

They didn’t miss much however as they missed a goalless half of football. There were around 10 Glovers fans who travelled independently to cheer on the Somerset side.

When the coach finally turned up, they made a great gesture to them to make up for the rather dismal turn of events they had endured.

They wrote: “We are in touch with those on the bus and those supporters will receive free entry at half time.

“When the Glovers supporters finally arrived at half-time, they received a round of applause and a standing ovation.”

Unfortunately for the Huish Park faithful their day went from bad to worse after Barrow striker Scott Quigley broke the deadlock just 45 seconds into the second half.

Disappointingly for Yeovil, they failed to threaten the Barrow goal to get themselves that much needed and their fans ended up having a rather gloomy trip back home 310 miles, though of with a story and memory to last a lifetime when reflecting back on past away days.


After finding out Yeovil’s rough journey up to Barrow, but also the latter club’s great gesture, fans took to give their reaction – find out what they said on the next page.
