For Yeovil's play-off final against Brentford

icon sadfan16 May ~ A Yeovil Town fan has been told he must pay £1,500 to display his banner before the League One play-off final against Brentford at Wembley on Sunday. Dan Cabell wanted to show off his "Little Old Yeovil" banner but because it would be passed over supporters' heads he was told an event organisation company would need to supervise its movement. An FA spokesman said: "The cost is in place for a contractor that we have an existing relationship with. They have to bring in a team of eight people to ensure the flag is manoeuvred safely over the heads of fans in the stadium. The cost is to bring in extra man power."
