The Huish Ground, Yeovil

Yeovil Town, who were the first opponents of the Lilywhites after they turned professional, were founded 1890 as Yeovil F.C. before becoming Yeovil Casuals five years later. Having originally shared a ground with the local rugby club, in 1907 they changed their name to Yeovil Town and at the same stage moved to the Pen Mill Athletic Ground. The 1920s saw them amalagamate with Petters United to become Yeovil and Petters Utd F.C. and also move to the Huish Ground, which was to remain their home for nearly 70 years. They reverted to the name Yeovil Town in 1946.
