Yeovil Town are set to refund all supporters who travelled to yesterday’s drubbing at the hands of Luton Town on the opening day of the season.

Nathan Jones’ men ran out 8-2 winners with debutant James Collins grabbing himself a hat-trick.

And the Glovers midfielder James Bailey has apologised for the performance and claims the players will refund the 258 travelling fans.

He told the club’s official website: “We know we let ourselves and the fans down.

“We felt the same as everyone else connected with the club and know the performance was unacceptable.

“The support we had at Luton was fantastic and we didn’t repay them how we wanted. Most were still there at the end of the game when our performance didn’t merit that.

“As a group, we want to apologise and give fans their money back.”

Yeovil manager Darren Way echoed his player’s thoughts. 

He added: “Saturday was never going to be easy but the manner of the defeat was totally unacceptable and I apologise to the supporters and take full responsibility for that.

“Paying supporters their money back is a collective decision, we’re not happy with just apologising but at the same time know our best apology will come on the pitch in the coming weeks.”
