Yeovil Town Fixtures 2018/19: Fans to travel more this season to face teams like Swindon Town, MK Dons, Notts County and Carlisle United

The equivalent of a one-way trip to Londonderry in Northern Ireland awaits Glovers fans this season after it has been calculated that Yeovil Town will be travelling 342 more miles for away games this season than they did last campaign.

It all begins with a 484 mile round-trip on the opening day of the campaign to face newly relegated Bury, one of four Northern teams to enter League Two this season.

Whilst Glovers fans will be happy to see the back of the 522 mile round-trip to Accrington Stanley, using both stadiums as a start and end point, the addition of trips to Oldham Athletic, Northampton Town, MK Dons and Bury and also newly promoted Macclesfield Town and Tranmere Rovers has increased next season’s mileage, which could see supporters more out of pocket.

Unsurprisingly, Yeovil’s biggest trek continues to be to Carlisle, clocking in at a 674-mile round trip, which is nearly 100 miles more than the coastal visit to Grimsby Town (586 miles), with Morecambe now the only other 500-plus trip at 556.

Yeovil Town’s longest journeys

The only sub-100 mile trip Yeovil Town face is against Exeter City, with Newport County (171.2), Swindon Town (158.2) and Forest Green Rovers (193) being the only trips to clock below 200 miles.

Yeovil Town’s shortest journeys

Last season, Yeovil fans managed an average 343.34 miles per trip but with Luton Town (296), Wycombe Wanderers (270) and Coventry City (340) being promoted and Barnet (278) being relegated, the inheritance of Oldham (480), Bury (484), Macclesfield (428) and Tranmere (494), now pushes the average trip up to 358.21.

Yeovil were the fourth most travelled side last campaign, behind Carlisle, Exeter and Morecambe. Coventry and Notts County, being in the Midlands, travelled the least.

Exeter City start with home game against Carlisle and face Paul Tisdale's MK Dons at the end of August

Exeter City will be at home to Carlisle United on the opening day of the season with the Grecians playing host to the Cumbrians on Saturday, August 4.

The two sides met in a League Two play-off semi-final classic at the end of the 2016/17 season, which saw the Grecians win through to Wembley 6-5 on aggregate. But the Cumbrioans are under new management now with former Plymouth Argyle boss John Sheridan at the Brunton Park helm.

City fans will not have to wait too long before renewing acquaintances with former manager Paul Tisdale either. The Grecians are due to travel to Stadium MK on August, 25 – their fifth game of the season – while their first away game will be at Morecambe on August 11.

They have a Westcountry derby to look forward to on Boxing Day when Yeovil Town make the short trip down from south Somerset, while City will finish the campaign away to another localish team, Forest Green Rovers, on Saturday, May 4.
