“If people think they can just wave a wand and it’s all good... well, it just doesn’t happen,” Darren Sarll said as he entered Huish Park, told to simply restore some pride.
It took less than a month for Glovers’ fans to think their new manager is magic.
Six games in September, and six wins. It’s seven in a row overall, a period which has brought a whole new complexion to the situation.
Sutton United, FC Halifax Town, AFC Fylde, Solihull Moors, Aldershot Town and Bromley. All beaten.
Sarll, who took over later this summer when the club found themselves out of the Football League for the first time since 2003, took a matter of weeks to warm Somerset hearts.
They ended September just a point behind leaders Bromley.
It’s incredibly rare what goes down comes straight back up, as many clubs have found out.
Are Yeovil ready to make a mockery of that trend?
