Yeovil Town have reportedly had to ask players and staff to take a 50 per cent wage deferral.
With the football season currently on hiatus as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take effect, Yeovil are one of the many clubs currently trying to contend with a huge loss of revenue. The Glovers are reportedly facing ‘a £400,000 black hole amid the coronavirus pandemic,’ say Somerset Live.
After relegation last season, Yeovil have had a very promising season under Darren Sarll, sitting 4th in the Vanarama National League with nine games to go.
On the reported 50 percent wage cuts, chairman and owner Scott Priestnall has said in an interview with The Guardian: “It’s difficult but it is unavoidable. It was absolutely soul-destroying because we had a clear plan for this season.”
