Having broken into the second tier of English football this past season for the first time ever in their 118-year existence, Yeovil Town are not exactly having the best of times.
They lie rock bottom with nine points from their 15 games and are early season contenders to get relegated back to where they came from.
But the fans may soon have something else to cheer them up, as the club is planning on having it’s very own all-girl music band that will perform before and after games at their home ground of Huish Park.
As per a Guardian report:
[Yeovil] will be the first football club to have a girl group and the plan is for the band – to be based on the Pussycat Dolls – to perform at home matches for the rest of the 2013-14 season.
Auditions for females aged 18 and over will be held at Huish Park on 4 December and the successful girls, a lead singer and a group of south west-based dancers, will work with [record label] The Famous Company to record a single that will be released on iTunes. The record will raise money for Prostate Cancer UK – the Football League’s official charity.
A spokesman for the club said that the move had many benefits, both social and economical. That would include raising money for charity, getting on board new fans for the club through the music, as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing spectacle on the pitch, in the light of some rather dour performances from the footballers.
It would not be the first time that Yeovil have turned to music; in 2004 they released a single called ‘Yeovil True’ just for earning the chance to play Liverpool in the FA Cup third round that year. Rather unsurprisingly, they went on to lose that game.Published 18 Nov 2013, 13:27 IST
